This silly crime comedy is filled with gay male characters, as the title suggests, but it also includes one major lesbian role. Kenny (Glen Mulhern) arrives in London from Ireland to meet his friend Byron (Brendan Mackey), who has been telling him how great life is there. He quickly finds out that London’s streets are definitely not paved with gold.
Although he’s straight, Byron makes his living by giving blow jobs to older gay men. Soon Kenny is doing the same, and they become embroiled in a search for the murderer of ‘The Queen’ (Michael Praed), whose lover is rumored to keep large amounts of money in his bed. Once they find the murderer, they think they’ll also find the money, but the number of dead gay guys just keeps mounting.
Also looking for the cash is the owner of one of the gay bars, a campy lesbian called ‘The Iron Lady’ (Karen Sharman). She’s evil and conniving when it comes to money, and eventually she becomes ‘Dead Gay Girl #1.’
It’s a harmless screwball comedy that will keep you mildly entertained. It is filled with stereotypes about poofy men, rich Jews, fat lesbians, African men, etc, but these clichés are also confronted head on. Winner of the Audience Award at the Dublin Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. (AB)
