Closeted Navy Pilot Discusses Drunken One-Night-Stand With Buddy In “Burning Blue”

We’re so excited! We just can’t hide it! DMW Greer’s gay drama Burning Blue opens today in select theaters and on VOD, and we have a brand new clip from the film to show you.

Burning Blue opened as an Off-Broadway play in 1995, the story centers on the romantic relationship between two Navy fighter pilots during the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” era.

The film’s synopsis reads:

They have been trained to meet danger head-on, to execute vital strategic maneuvers while flying at breathtaking speeds. But after a series of fatal accidents, a close-knit squadron of male Navy pilots begins to splinter—and becomes the focus of a criminal investigation. As a government agent digs to uncover the cause of the accidents, two of the pilots engage in a secret, forbidden relationship. Their affair is exposed…and the squadron is engulfed by an incendiary scandal that will challenge each pilot’s notions of friendship, love, honor and courage.

Check out the clip below. And don’t miss Burning Blue this weekend.
