Killer Unicorn (2018/19)

A YEAR AGO AT BROOKLYN'S ANNUAL ENEMA PARTY...

Danny  is your average Brooklyn party boy. This year, he and his friends couldn't be more excited about the upcoming "Brooklyn's Annual Enema Party: Where you come to get douched and dance"; as it is one of Brooklyn's biggest parties. While the night starts out fun, it quickly takes a turn for the worst when Danny is attacked by a stranger. In the end, his fabulous drag queen and queer friends are able to save his life, but not without deadly consequences.

A year later, Danny is still going throughout the aftermath of that horrible incident and refuses to go to this year's  "Brooklyn's Annual Enema Party", despite the pressure of his close friends Cholata, Collin and Gayson. His friends want Danny to face his fears and go back out into the world. Danny refuses to, but when a new boy, PuppyPup, enters his life, Danny decides to give his social life and the Brooklyn nightlife scene a second chance. It isn't until his friends start to disappear and get killed in gruesome ways that Danny realizes that his life, and everyone else who helped him that night, are in danger. A man wearing a unicorn mask is killing off Brooklyn nightlife, one queen at a time, and he won't stop until he has his revenge!

"Gay Positive (2015) now avail

Gay Blood can save your life "Gay Positive" is the story of one man trying to bring to attention the outdated ban on gay men donating blood in the United States of America. This documentary will inform and educate people on this controversial issue. Includes interviews with celebrities such as Trapper Felides, Blanche Baker, Lisa Lampanelli, Laverne Cox, and Eric Millegan. We also interviewed on the streets of NY to capture opinions of people from all walks of life to ask "If you were in need of blood and the donor was healthy, would it concern you?" History proves that when tragedy strikes, donor centers are often in short supply and struggle to meet demand. The ban forces organizations such as The Red Cross to reject healthy individuals. During the filming of this documentary, countries such as Mexico and the UK lifted their ban, while the FDA insisted it remain in the USA. "Gay Positive" hopes to remove the stigmas often associated with the lifestyles of homosexual men and to raise public awareness of the potential benefits of lifting the ban on gay blood.

 

"The Coffee Shop" is a quirky queer comedy that takes place in a gay owned, rainbow-friendly New York restaurant and coffee house where love is constantly tossed into the blender. At this place the coffee is often cold but the Sass is always served hot. Stars Joshua Cruz, Rachel Filsoof, Rachel Robins, Blanche Baker, Edvin Ortega, and Keith Collins. This film combines 7 vignettes that stand alone but together make one hilarious film.
