Explicit sexual content

For a long time, local cinemas were the only places where gay men could see their lives and desires depicted on the canvas. The film industry in the 60s, 70s and 80s helped spread the inclusion of gay film narratives. Stories about everything from jumping out to romance, from horror to comedies. 'Ask Any Buddy' collects fragments from over 125 movies to create a kaleidoscopic snapshot of the time.
