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.

Bobbi Jo Hart is the director of the new movie Rebels on Pointe which is the first documentary that has gone behind the scenes of the world-famous all-male (and all-gay) ballet company Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. It’s a wonderful heartwarming tale of how this Company has not just survived for over 40 years doing their delightful parodies of romantic and classical ballets that have not just won them fans all over the world, but how they have become one of the oldest (and happiest) LGBT organizations.
queerguru caught up with Emmy Award winning producer and director Josh Howard at Miami’s OUTShine Film Festival just before the screening of his new movie. The Lavender Scare is the first documentary film to tell the little-known story of an unrelenting campaign by the federal government to identify and fire all employees suspected of being homosexual. As we wanted to know more about the worst witchhunt in our community’s history we sat down with John (in a very noisy Regal cinema) to get his take on it all.
