Holiday Hits: Shared Rooms

A sexy, feel-good romantic comedy, Shared Rooms explores the meaning of home and family through three interrelated stories of gay men finding connections during the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Laslo and Cal (Christopher Grant Pearson and Alec Manley Wilson), a married couple, take in a teenage relative who was kicked out of his home after his parents discovered he was gay; Sid and Gray (Justin Xavier Smith and Alexander Neil Miller), two men looking for a quick hookup, end up finding a much stronger connection; and Julian and Dylan (Daniel Lipshutz and Robert Werner), a pair of roommates, are forced to share the same bed for the week – much to the delight (and horror) of the one harboring a secret crush on the other.

Directed by Rob Williams (3-Day Weekend, Make the Yuletide Gay), Shared Rooms brings together these three interrelated tales of gay men seeking family, love and sex during the holiday season. You can check out the trailer below. The film is now available on Dekkoo.

Make the Yuletide Gay with Dekkoo!

College senior, Olaf ‘Gunn’ Gunnunderson (Keith Jordan) is head-over-heels in love with his ultra-gay sweetheart Nathan Stanford (Adamo Ruggiero). Though they don’t want to part ways, the boyfriends are each headed off for Christmas break, returning home to their families.

Nathan’s cold parents won a trip to Israel, but somehow “forgot” to tell their son. When he hears that he’s to spend the holidays alone, he decides to make his way to Wisconsin to be with his sweetie and family. When he gets there, there are a few surprises: Gunn is in the closet; Gunn’s mom, Anya is a major Christmas freak who says “Dontcha” frequently; and Gunn takes after his dad Sven – anatomically speaking – a fact learned when Gunn’s stoner dad greets Nathan at the door in an open bathrobe.

With constant double-entendres flying from Anya’s mouth and Gunn Sr. always stoned, no one seems to notice that Gunn is gay and dating Nathan. With the closet walls closing in on Nathan, he decides to flee back to his empty home – the Gunnunderson’s are a little too insane even for him!

Giddily exuberant, this gay holiday classic from writer-director Rob Williams’ is romantic and filled with laugh-out-loud jokes. Make the Yuletide Gay is guaranteed to get you into the holiday spirit.

Watch the trailer for Make the Yuletide Gay below. The film is now available on Dekkoo.

 

 

Short Film Spotlight: Is This a Date?

Fans of the Dekkoo Original Series I’m Fine have a brand-new six minutes and ten seconds to get excited about. From Brandon Kirby, the creator behind I’m Fine, and actor Lee Doud, one of the shows leads, comes the new short film Is This a Date?

This not-so-romantic comedy follows one love-lorn young man (Doud) through a series of encounters with other attractive guys. In each, he’s trying to determine whether or not he and his new partner are friends, fuck buddies… or something more.

Co-starring Christopher Charles Baker, Francisco Chacin, Wolfie Trausch, Logan Allison and Danny Plotner, Is This a Date? takes a fast-paced, funny, sexy and bittersweet journey through the treacherous and seemingly endless process of finding that someone special.

Is This a Date? is streaming now on Dekkoo. All three seasons of I’m Fine are also available now.
