Lonely Beautiful Boys

Streaming October 1–4

Join us for a Virtual Live Q&A on Friday, October 2 at 6:00PM CST with cast and crew from GLANCES, 1-1, ALL THE YOUNG DUDES, GO GO, BOY!, THE LONELY PRINCE, and ONE MORE PLEASE. Filmmaker Q&A conducted by host of Out Chicago, Scott Duff.

Whether it’s mustering up the courage to approach a stranger, stepping on stage in drag for the first time, taking off your clothes for a photographer, or even fleeing your royal palace to be with the man of your dreams, these beautiful boys and young men won’t be alone for long. Two strangers lock eyes in a cafe in GLANCES. In 1-1, Ayman’s friends crash his first date with a new guy. Set in the 1970s, glam rocker Billy inspires his admirer to rebel against their conservative high school in ALL THE YOUNG DUDES. In PLANTONIC, a relationship blooms between a musician and a plant man he unearthed in his garden. A makeup crazed teenager ignores his brother’s warnings and prepares for his first drag performance in BEAUTY BOYS. Bobby dances in his room and fantasizes being centerstage in GO, GO BOY! When Kevin models for a professional photographer, he gets more than he bargained for in CONTENT. An Indian prince hires a sculptor to keep him company in THE LONELY PRINCE. A young man gets drunk in a bar alone on Valentine’s Day in ONE MORE PLEASE.
