2013 screen queens

A guide to the essential gay films to watch this year


Every year there are some buzzworthy flicks that feature loads of queer content, and 2013 is no different. We've got a lot to look forward to in the coming months, including some historical throwbacks; a kinky, meta mind fuck; and even the film debut of one of the best satirists on the planet. 

Beyond the Candelabra
Based on the juicy autobiographical novel written by Scott Thorson, Liberace's long-term lover, this movie tell the story of the way-larger-than-life romance between the famous piano man and his much younger lover, who was also his chauffeur. Directed by indie film icon Steven Soderbergh and written by Richard LaGravenese (The Fisher King, Beloved) this project has everyone very curious. With Matt Damon playing Thorson and Michael Douglas playing the notoriously flamboyant Liberace, it'll be hard to miss all the sequinned outfits and absurd drama this story guarantees.
Kill Your Darlings
Harry Potter playing a young Allen Ginsberg? Nobody saw that coming, but early stills suggest he certainly looks the part. Based on a true story, this film follows the murder of David Kammerer (Dexter himself, Michael C Hall) by beat generation club member Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan) and the effect it had on literary icons and BFFs Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe), Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) and William Burroughs (Ben Foster). Throw in a soundtrack by Björk, Grizzly Bear and Antony and the Johnsons collaborator Nico Muhly and this film becomes a must-see.

Interior. Leather Bar
Chosen for both the Berlin and Sundance film festivals, this flick is the next project from rising star/gay director Travis Matthews (I Want Your Love), who teams with honorary gay James Franco to reimagine the 40 minutes of gay SM footage that was rumoured to have been cut from the controversial 1980 sex thriller Cruising, starring Al Pacino. The film follows the shooting process and experiences of actor Val Lauren, who hesitantly agrees to be the lead in the film. Sure to be a sexy, explicit and mind-bending exploration of kink, creative licence and personal boundaries, this meta film might just be to die for.

It has taken years, but David Sedaris is finally coming to the big screen. Based on an essay from Sedaris's hilarious bestselling book Naked, COG follows Sedaris, a recent college grad, as he goes to work as an apple picker in the orchards of Oregon and meets a handful of eccentric co-workers who challenge his preconceived notions of rural life and attitudes. Sedaris is played by Glee hottie Jonathan Groff, who makes for a dashing yet perfectly de-shelved leading man. If the film is half as insightful and funny as Sedaris's writing, it will be one of the year's best. —Matt Thomas

      Pygmies The Shortest Ethnic Race of Humans Found on Earth The term Pygmy can be defined as any ethnic group whose average height would be much lower than the world average, to be precise any group whose male members would not grow taller than 150 cm or a little below the five foot mark. There are several such races that inhabit parts of central Africa. Australia, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Papua New Guinea and parts of Brazil are the other parts of the world that are inhabited by this particular type of people. Though it may sound a bit weird to know that such an ethnic group of people do exist, it is a fact that they have been coexisting from time immemorial. As the term Pygmy is sometimes considered to be somewhat derogatory, most people belonging to this group would rather be referred to by the names of their clans like Aka, Baka, Mbuti, Twa and Bambenga. These tribes are found in Central African Republic and the Congo regions. The term Pygmy itself has its origins from a Latin term Pygmaei denoting a measure of length, the approximate length from the elbows to the knuckles of a clenched fist. Greek and Indian mythologies contain references of dwarfish people existing in parts of India and Africa. The short stature of the Pygmies is mainly attributed to hereditary traits which could have evolved over a period of time due to their living deep in the jungles devoid of sufficient sunlight and subsequently low penetration levels of ultra violet rays, which could have contributed to stunted growth. This could have been because of low levels of Vitamins in the body resulting in undernourished bone structures. They are efficient huntergatherers in spite of disadvantageous physical capabilities, and were experts in tracking their prey. They also bartered the meat and other forest produce for cultivated food and other products from the neighboring tribes who were more advanced.Each tribe had its own dialect and customs and traditions. However, there were
