Once again New Queer Visions showcase a stunning collection of wondrous short films, in a series of six tales that between them highlight closeted homosexuality disguised as overt masculinity, a bittersweet coming-of-age tale of first love, the telling tale

a delightful take on gay parenting and the anxieties of getting it right.
