Speedway Junky

Directed by Nickolas Perry
United States, 1999
Drama, Gay & Lesbian


Nickolas Perry’s debut is a sordid but ultimately uplifting tale of teen Las Vegas street hustlers. The pro­tagonists of Speedway Junky don’t consider themselves gay prostitutes, more kids down on their luck who are only a big score away from their dream.
