Is there a gay man out there who hasn’t pondered the meaning of masculinity?
Insightful interviews mixed with entertaining eye-candy make this fast-paced testosterone tour a must-watch movie for all gay men.
From the Castro clone culture of the 1970s to today’s Bears and gym rats this fascinating investigation of gay men and masculinity blows the lid off old stereotypes and showcases a strapping battalion of interviewees including muscle men, rodeo riders, rugby players and cops. The men speak candidly on a range of topics from homophobia to metrosexuality to embracing effiminacy as they reveal what it means to be a gay man in America today.
Thoroughly entertaining and insightful, The Butch Factor also checks in with various experts and historians — and ends with a trip to the famous Lazy Bear Weekend.
