Departure is an intimate story beginning at dawn on the first day and ending at night on the sixth, charting the end of a summer, the end of a childhood and the end of an otherwise nuclear, middle class family.


I love You Both

So Wild is the debut single of I Love You Both, a Ukrainian band by Oleg Zhezhel (best known for his former project Kazaky) which has a heavy focus on a surprising subject: bisexuality. The band is made up of two boys, Roman and Nazar, and one girl, Dasha.

So Wild is about the disappointment and despair of teens stuck between childhood and adulthood. It’s about a lost generation that wants to find itself but isn’t sure how.

Alex and the Handyman

Alex And The Handyman takes a look at pre-adolescent sexuality in a sweet way. The film precocious nine-year-old Alex, who develops an instant crush on much older handyman, Jared. The child wants the moody 20-something man’s attention, but Jared isn’t that interested in humoring the fantasies of a kid.

The short starts off as a sweet and sometimes funny look at pre-sexual awakening. However, some people will probably be freaked out a bit by the end.

Saturday Church

milkboys Films, Films & Cinema 10 Comments

Saturday Church tells the story of 14-year-old Ulysses as he struggles to express his personality & sexuality in a hostile environment.

Ulysses, the young protagonist of Saturday Church, is first seen at the burial of his father, a soldier killed overseas. The New York teen, played by Luka Kain, has delicate features and carries an air of quiet about him.

He and his younger brother will now be looked after by both their mother Amara and strict Aunt Rose. The latter does not mince words after Ulysses is discovered trying on his mother’s shoes. “If I ever hear of you even looking at women’s clothing, I will beat it out of you. You are a man. Start acting like one,” she says, enunciating each word with controlled rage.

But the boy is in no way conflicted about his sexual orientation — he’s just surrounded by disapproval. As a form of escape, he imagines his life as a musical, and the movie is dotted with song and dance, beginning with a particularly audacious locker-room scene in which Ulysses’ jock tormentors turn into backup dancers.

For real-life affinity, Ulysses seeks companionship on the pier by Manhattan’s Christopher Street, where he is enlisted into Saturday Church, a program for at-risk queer youth (the program in the movie is based on a real one).

The film was written and directed by Damon Cardasis, making his feature debut. It is a disarmingly and consistently sensitive movie that remains engaging even when its reach sometimes exceeds its grasp (a musical number set in what might be the world’s tidiest homeless shelter for example).

The wonderful cast brings the story home, and Luka Kain in particular is a real find. When Ulysses first puts on lip gloss in a room full of people who accept him, the smile that plays on his face is both ebullient and heart-rending.

Russian Satisfaction

milkboys News, Skin & Skylcad 28 Comments

Young cadets from Russia’s Ulyanovsk Institute of Civil Aviation (UIGA) are being investigated for violating the student code of conduct after participating in an eye-popping, homoerotic music video.

The video — set to Benny Benassi’s 2002 electro-house hit “Satisfaction” — shows one cadet repeatedly deep throating a banana while others dance, shake their rumps and thrust their bulges in nothing more than underwear, belt straps, neckties and cadet caps. The Russian cadets now face possible expulsion for their participation.

The video (below), which appeared on YouTube earlier today, shows a handful of students gyrating, seductively posing around their dormitory, pretending to do chores and generally performing like a low-budget Russian schoolboy version of Magic Mike.
