I liked the unpretentious, non-judgmental tone throughout the film, as well as its excellent production quality. It was a relief to be presented with emotional and sometimes controveresial material without ever once being hit over the head with a "point of view". Good going!

A moving, expansive film about LGBTQ life in New York City today. A wide range of lives and voices in a riveting documentary, which brought me into the homes and lives of people I'd otherwise never have met. Important for our times when we need understanding of each other now more than ever.
