WIN: Passes, Prizes From The New Hilariously Un-Romantic Gay Comedy, “Gayby”

In the uproarious new queer comedy Gayby, Jenn (Jenn Harris) and Matt (Matthew Wilkas) are best friends from college who are now in their 30s. Single by choice, Jenn spends her days teaching hot yoga and running errands for her boss. Matt suffers from comic-book writer’s block and can’t get over his ex-boyfriend. They decide to fulfill a youthful promise to have a child together… the old-fashioned way.

Can they navigate the serious and unexpected snags they hit as they attempt to get their careers and dating lives back on track in preparation for parenthood?

The movie opens in New York on October 12, and you know Queerty has a prize package for some lucky readers, including a Gayby t-shirt, a tote bag and two New York movie passes good through the run of the film!

Entering to win is easy: Just tell us what you’d name your baby (and why) in the comment section below. Your answer can be funny or serious, and relate to a child you already have, might have, or would never have in a million years.

(You do have to register to comment, though—but that’s easy as A-B-C)

Each Gayby prize pack included a t-shirt, tote bag, and an admit-two movie pass to see Gayby at the Cinema Village theater in New York. Passes valid any Monday-Thursday, except holidays, during its regular engagement. Not for resale. Void at the end of engagement. Entry in contest indicates interest in receiving prize. Entrant must live in or be able to come to the New York City area to redeem prize package.

    I would name my potential hypothetical daughter Noname’. (Pronounced: No-nah-mae.) Why you might ask–why not?

  • Jonny Quander

    If I had a baby, I would name her Eleanor June. Eleanor is reverence to Eleanor of Aquitaine and Eleanor Roosevelt, two extremely powerful and independent women who helped shape the worlds around them. And June for my Nana. She knew I was gay long before anyone else in my family realized it and never treated me differently because of it. She has been my rock of support and one of my greatest champions.

    I wanted to name my daughter Claire Annette, hoping she’d be musical (Clarinet) but my wife made me shorten it to Claire Ann. Would LOVE to see this movie!!

  • Cam

    I HOPE this movie is good. Something in my head keeps screaming that this is going to be a repeat of some horrible abortion of a movie like “The Next Best Thing” with Madonna.

    If you see it on a late night yourself a favor and turn, DON’T make my mistake and watch it.

  • Alix

    I would name my child Justin Time.

  • Cam


    “Snicker” Rita Menu

  • SoloZach

    Not Blue Ivy.

  • randynj

    I would name the baby Sage. Good name for male or female.

    This is an amazingly HILARIOUS movie … and done very well. I met the cast & crew during Outfest in LA and they are such a great group of people. They really produced a good movie with a good story line. The director even acts in the movie … and he’s funny! Highly recommended movie … go see it!

    Uh Oh, you had me until “The director even acts in the movie.” I’ve seen some disasters when that happens.

    lol. I’ll check it out though. :)

    I actually just texted my best friend, who recently and drunkenly got a crooked tattoo of an anchor on the back of his calf because he’s brilliant and responsible, that I was planning on naming my future son Anchor, and that the announcements would feature a Kim Anderson style picture of little Anchor asleep on the back of his calf, where he has his tattoo. This is of course me being a super supportive friend (read: jerk) after weeks of sending him daily pics of inspirational celebrities (Ke$ha, Miley Cyrus, Kelly Osbourne, etc.) who also have anchor tattoos. Truthfully though, the name, like the tattoo, is growing on me, and as important as it is to him, and him to me, it may just be apt.

    I would name my child Lillian (or Lily) after my great grandmother. She was the cornerstone for my family for three generations. And while she is still alive, her dementia is so bad she does not recognize any family members. I want to do this to honor her memory and devotion to her family, just as I hope to be fully devoted to mine.

    His name would be Houdini. He’d have to be a magician to ever be conceived the old fashion way.Would love to see the movie. Trailer looks great!
