  1. At Outfest this summer, there was a very strong slate of shorts. I'm surprised that only 3 of the ones I saw appear here: Alaska is a Drag, which was terrific; Gorilla, which was a serious WTF? film that I wouldn't have included here; and The Language of Love, which was marvelous.

    A couple more might have played at Outfest, but I didn't see those packages.

  2. Wow, a lot of these look terrific. The great thing about YouTube is that it gives a lot of these little gems exposure where they used to often just vanish into the ether, but you've got to be really diligent about keeping track of titles, synopses, festivals etc. so you know what to search for. (The one about the boy with Downs looks especially interesting; there was a sensational doc a couple years ago in SF about developmentally disabled teens and 20-somethings who are LGBT, and who face an unusual dilemma of trying to come out to family and friends who tell them "you don't know what that means.")
