DVD: “Hyde Park on Hudson,” “Love Free Or Die,” “Naked Lunch,” And More!


This week in home entertainment sounds like one of those “a *** and a ** and a *** walk into a bar together” jokes:

A man of God, openly gay Episcopal bishop Gene Robinson, is the subject of the documentary Love Free or Die.

A president, FDR, heads up scandalous period drama Hyde Park on Hudson.

A drug addict with a penchant for bug killer powder enters a queer, dangerous fantasyland in Naked Lunch.

And a stand-up comic who could deliver a punchline is featured in Dante’s One Man Comedy Hour.

      I have no comprehension as to why someone that is gay would want to be religious. Religion has condemned homosexuality for centuries. Just because some dying religions are now willing to get into bed with the gays simply for the profits, it does not mean we should flock to them. Anyone that does so is truly incomprehensible.

      Why is the FDR movie on this list? Let’s keep it gay, please.

      Don’t just concentrate on just the Gay releases, concentrate on awesome releases.

      It just so happens Naked Lunch is both Queer and totally fucking awesome.

      @Lefty: I think he mixed up “homophobic” with “Canadian.”

      Which is an honest mistake, really.
