Ezra in' Kiss Me Softly.'

Here's a charming short film that somehow went right by me when it first came
out back in 2012. It now features as one of several short gay films on Peccadillo's
current collection of coming of age films on Boys on Film 17.

In 'Kiss Me Softly'  17 year old Jasper's life takes a sudden turn when he is kissed by
a friend. And it's that very kiss that gives him just the spark that he needs while
helping him to accept who he really is.
But is his inquisitive as well as backward thinking Father able to accept Jasper's
new revelation?

Of course Ezra's life has moved on a bit and he now finds himself more involved in
the world of modern Ballet, recently performing in the As Palvares controversial
production of 'Giovanni's Club,' an alternative dance art performance that entails
quite a bit of casual nudity, something that Ezra is very comfortable with.
Further down below are a few images from the production.

Below is the short film with Ezra in 'KISS ME SOFTLY.'

Meanwhile Peccadillo is to release it's very latest BOYS ON FILM and
this time it's number 18,  featuring 10 uplifting gay short dramas.
The actual dvd won't be released until April 23rd but it can
now be pre-ordered through Amazon UK.

What's interesting about number 18 is that it features the long awaited
short film 'An Evening' by Danish Director Soren Green. The 2016 film
is a follow up to the award winning 'An Afternoon' (2014) featuring the
same two actors Ulrik Scmidt and Jakob Ottensten.

In 'An Evening' the two boys, Ulrik and Jakob, share an intimate night
together. And while one of the boys accepts what has happened
between them, the other boy finds it hard to come to terms with his newly
found attraction for the other boy.

At the bottom of the post is the trailer. But as trailers go, this one gives
absolutely nothing away.

PANSY!



MODEL IN TOP IMAGES ARE FROM THE PANSY INSTAGRAM PAGE. MORE OF HIM CAN BE SEEN HERE.



Although it's a less used word these days I've often thought of the phrase Pansy
as being a watered down interpretation of queer or gay. I think it was a less inoffensive
derogatory term used by  unenlightened parents from the past, perhaps disgruntled
with their offspring. I don't think it was until the 1990's that radical gay activist
groups adopted the once taboo phrase Queer, making it become de riguer.
It meant what it said. It was in your face terminology unlike Pansy or shirtlifter.

That's not to say that the watering down of the word gay has ceased. In fact we
have The London Gay Film Festival currently running at The London Southbank.
A  few years ago they dropped the word gay and they now call it The Flare Film Festival

Rediculous I know.
And for years I thought that our Gay Times Magazine had all but vanished from
the top shelf of my local newsagents. In fact it never disappeared at all. They just
rebranded it calling it simply GT. I kept thinking it was a car magazine.

And so here we have a rather colorful gender challenging online magazine that goes
by the name of Pansy. And it describes itself as an online menswear magazine that aims

to redefine the modern man, blurring the rigid categories of masculine and feminine
as well as creating a space for free and unaffected creative expression.
