“Shared Rooms” Shows Exactly Why Gay Men Chose Their Own Holiday Families
Shared Rooms, the latest holiday-themed production from writer-director Rob Williams (Make The Yuletide Gay, etc.) is out this week. The film unspools a trio of gay tales entirely shot in the gay Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, including one that has earned notoriety on the LGBTQ film festival circuit.

They say that gay men choose their own families. That’s never more evident than during the holidays.
