›› NEW QUEER VISIONS proudly presents THE LATIN BOYS - VOLUME 2 ‹‹

Once again New Queer Visions showcase a stunning collection of wondrous short films, in a series of six tales that between them depict a compelling picture of gay parenthood and grief, a powerful take on coming out in the face of presidential prejudice,
a captivating exploration of male friendship and sexuality, an achingly realistic depiction of finding love
even in the most harshest of environments and from the agonising wait for the outcome
of an HIV test, to that of a wondrous coming out styled comedy of errors.
