androholik Probably a fairly redundant message, but I wanted to let you know that I'm a huge fan. Always have been. You're one of my top five sources of personal inspiration. You sick yet? Don't worry, I'm done 😉 Keep up the good work, man.

No, I am not sick yet. Keep going! LOL

drunkled Hey Bruce, it's hard to see your films if you don't go to "festivals" have you thought about making them available on Vimeo VOD, you get to keep 90% of the sale price? Would really like to see Gerontophilia , for example.

Otto is on Netflix! At least, it was. Gerontophilia will be released Canada-wide July 4th. It also has US distribution, so it will be released later this year or early next year. It was already released France nation-wide. I can’t make them available VOD myself as it’s all up to the distributors! xxx Blab

jaimegandarilla I found that video with all trans dancers a bit... tokenistic

Tokenism is the policy or practice of making a perfunctory gesture toward the inclusion of members of minority groups. This was hardly a tokenistic gesture since the trans-women involved came from a variety of far-flung destinations to participate in the video, and they were actively invited to style themselves and be included in a collaborative concept. The video is also obviously a direct homage to Pierre Molinier, the great, transgressive, self-avowed homosexual transvestite photographer who pioneered transgendered representation. If you still find it tokenistic, go ahead, but I think you’re really off-base. I’ve collaborated with transexual performers for many years, and I’ve expressed my solidarity in many different ways…

Queering the May-December courtship of Harold and Maude, iconic provocateur Bruce LaBruce (L.A. Zombie) returns with this subversively tender tale of the intimate bond between a teenage nursing home attendant and an elderly resident.

A sharp, subversive take on the mainstreaming of gay culture courtesy of one of queer cinema’s most upfront and provocative filmmakers, Bruce LaBruce’s Gerontophilia may also be his most tender, romantic film to date.

The hero, Lake (Pier-Gabriel Lajoie), has been in a straight relationship with Désirée (2011 TIFF Rising Star Katie Boland) for a while. But lately he finds himself paying special attention to some of the older male clientele where he works (reluctantly) as a lifeguard. When one of the swimmers nearly drowns, Lake rescues him, but in a manner that’s, well, a little too enthusiastic — and Lake must finally acknowledge his own desires. Luckily for him, his mother gets him hired at a seniors’ home, where he meets Mr. Peabody (Walter Borden). Sparks fly — and soon Peabody and Lake are faced with some tough choices.

With Gerontophilia, LaBruce takes satiric aim at both the desire for mainstream, even conventional films within the queer community and the youth-obsessed nature of gay (and straight) culture. The tone may seem like agitprop camp — LaBruce is aided by a group of skilled actors who know how to play it perfectly — and it’s certainly very funny, but there are serious questions percolating underneath.

Désirée’s oft-repeated list of revolutionaries may sometimes seem like a lefty parlour game, but it raises important questions: What and who sparks real change? Part of the answer comes with the way LaBruce approaches the material. Seldom, if ever, have the bodies of aging men been presented so gently or romantically. Updating and queering Harold & Maude, LaBruce has made sure to make it not just about emotional attachment but about ardour, too. Here, the real revolutionaries aren’t just those who write or talk about revolution; they’re the people who are brave enough to follow their desires.
