DVD: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Daddy,” “Holiday,” & More!

by Lawrence Ferber April 05, 2016


The old and the new come together in this week’s home entertainment line-up.

Rebels Han Solo and Princess Leia team up with a couple of young do-gooders in JJ Abrams’ ferociously entertaining Star Wars: The Force Awakens. An older gay man finds himself falling for a young intern in Daddy. Finally, a gay 16-year-old Ecuadorian experiences first love in Holiday.

Now for the details and trailers…


Star Wars: The Force Awakens

($39.99 Blu-ray; Disney)

The Star Wars saga finds new life — and new blood — thanks to director JJ Abrams and a fantastic cast. In this seventh chapter of the series, a young orphan, Rey, and a stormtrooper-on-the-run, Finn, team up with Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Princess Leia to stop a reborn Empire and its diabolical figurehead, Kylo Ren. This is fun stuff, and while it’s essentially a retelling of A New Hope, the cast — including Adam Driver as Ren, selling some conflicted dark side realness — and some twists make it re-watchable. Extras include deleted scenes, featurettes, and more.



($24.99 DVD; Breaking Glass Pictures)

In this adaptation of Dan Via’s play, silverdaddy TV personality Colin McCormack (Gerald McCullouch, also the film’s director) and zingy best friend Stuart (Via) find their relationship challenged by the arrival of Tee (Jamie Cepero), a sexy young intern who becomes smitten with Colin. Stuart sees red flags that Tee is perhaps troubled and dangerous, yet Colin, who probably has a secret or two of his own, only gets in deeper and deeper… Extras include a commentary, featurettes, music video and Kickstarter campaign video.



($24.99 DVD; TLA)

Juampi, a sensitive 16-year-old artistic soul from a rich Ecuadorian family, is left with his uncle in the Andes for a spell during the Carnival holidays. One night, he and his uncle have a run-in with a pair of would-be hubcap thieves, one of whom is Juano, a young indigenous fellow from a whole other economic set. Juamip and Juano grow close, as the latter exposes him to Ecuador’s heavy metal scene… and love.

Cultural Appropriation Does Not Make David Bowie An LGBT Icon

by Dan Tracer October 23, 2016

October is LGBT History Month and Equality Forum is honoring an icon a day all month long, including David Bowie, who was honored October 7, despite the fact that he would probably look askance at such a title. David Bowie played with identity throughout his career, trying on different persona and presentations as regularly as he changed [...]
