Political Animals feels like an important historical document in the making – an important lesson on the progress the LGBT community has made in the last twenty years, and a stark reminder of the progress still needing to be made.
Released in 2007 and directed by Jonah Markowitz, Shelter is about a gay man whose dreams are held back by the burden of far too many responsibilities in his personal life. The film received the award for Outstanding Film – Limited Release from the GLAAD Media Awards. Shot in Los Angeles, USA, Trevor Wright and Brad Rowe also star.
