Once in a blue moon when we are ploughing through our usual packed schedule of movies to review, we come across a wee gem that hails an extraordinary new talent that gets us more than a little excited. Discovering that this particular new find wrote, directed and starred in his first feature, but who is barely out of college, makes it all even more remarkable. Prom King, 2010 is already being hailed as one of the best new LGBT movies of 2017, and queerguru talked to its creator being hailed as the new wunderkind : Christopher Schaap. He is an old-fashion romantic in a young soul.
The interview via Facetime was filmed and edited by Roger Walker-Dack for “queerguru reports” for PTV’s Channel 99.

Following his first highly successful documentary ‘How To Survive A Plague’ which deservedly won him an Oscar Nomination, filmmaker David France has now turned his attention to the mystery surrounding the death of legendary NY drag queen and activist Marsha P. Johnson for his sophomore movie. With the help of Victoria Cruz who was about to retire from the NY Anti-Violence Project, they try to get to the truth of what really happened to this stalwart of the Gay Liberation movement who was a central figure in the Stonewall riots.
Then welcome home! Asides from the OVER 700 REVIEWS of the best queer movies (that we add to weekly) we also get to interview the people who make them. Check out this video just to see who we filmed last week alone for www.queergurutv.com …… and then sign up to ensure that you never miss out on the best ever queer movie site.
It is an achingly beautiful story compassionately told and one that is tinged with more than it’s share of sadness, as openly gay Garnet Jones shows how tough it is for LGBT people to be themselves in this tight small communities.
After picking up Awards on the Film Festival circuit, the movie is being released by Wolfe Video and is available streaming on most major global platforms that carry LGBT films, on November 8th 2016. To mark the occasion the filmmaker talked to queerguru via Facetime all about his movie for an interview for P.T.V.
