  • Scotch's rating of the film Small Town Gay Bar

    I'm so glad there's a film about the difficulties of LGBTQ folk in the Deep South, and one that is ultimately celebratory and empowering. Also, queerer-than-thou assholes who talk shit about the supposedly superficial gay culture of clubs/bars ought to take note. For people who aren't privileged enough to live in more accepting major urban cities, these clubs are sometimes the only safe space for queer folk.
