Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

A 1990s Gay Time Capsule Will Be Opened This Weekend

Back in 1995, gay movies were few and far between.

We didn’t have streaming services or on-demand options.

And renting queer movies often meant finding a dedicated video store in the gayborhood or going into a back room for such “adult” content.

We remember the first time we saw Jeffrey and realized we needed to marry Steven Weber. That obviously didn’t happen, but it was such a life-changing experience to see gay men on the big screen talking about sex, laughing about sex, and having sex that we knew we’d made the right decision coming out.

Because the movie was released in 1995, it’s also a perfect time capsule of the era, both the good and the bad.

If you’ve never seen it or it’s been a while since you’ve had a refresher, catch Jeffrey tonight at The Texas Theatre with CinéWilde.

The movie was based on a play, so the evening starts with a pre-show conversation featuring local queer playwright, Bruce Coleman. Then after the screening, there will be a reading of his brand-new play, meaning you’ll be among the first in the world to hear it.

So get out your best flannel shirt, jean shorts, scrunchy socks, hiking boots and strap on a fanny pack and you’ll feel right at home with the characters on the screen.
