SUNDANCE: Chris Crocker On His New HBO Doc, Partying With Paris Hilton And Vlogging Sincerely

Over the next week, Evan Mulvihill will be reporting on the best gay-interest screenings, parties and panels at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. (PS: Check in on our sister site, GayCities, if you’re there!)

Chris Crocker has been in Park City, UT, for the past week promoting Me at the Zoo, a documentary that explores his rise to YouTube fame and the ensuing ups and downs. While at Sundance, he’s partied with Paris Hilton, checked out Grindr with his “official but not official” husband and sat down with Queerty for an interview. Chris tell Queerty the “Leave Britney Alone” video that launched him to Web stardom was sincere, but admits to playing up the character a bit. And he also tells us he’s changed his mind about porn and wants to move to New York to write songs and make music. (The porn-to-musician route is well-paved, Chris.)

Check it out above and expect Me at the Zoo to hit HBO this summer!`
