Male Gays, a NewNowNext web docu-series from director Blake Pruitt, features young gay men from different walks of life sharing their experiences and opinions on queer life in a series of frank interviews.
In the third installment, “Role Models,” the guys discuss their first exposure to queer culture. The guys fondly remember television shows and books — from Will and Grace to X-Men — featuring characters they identified with.
Who were your role models growing up? Mine were Bjork, Peaches, and whoever was playing Doctor Frank N Furter at the local Rocky Horror Picture Show.
