Following on the heels of Black Briefs, their first successful short film compilation, Guest House Films (the production company and distribution house from TLA favorite Rob Williams - Role/Play, 3-Day Weekend, Long-Term Relationship, Back Soon, and Make the Yuletide Gay) continues their new series with Blue Briefs. This brilliant, engrossing and emotional new collection features stellar gay shorts that focus on relationships and the unfortunate pain that often accompanies true love (something that gay men know all too well).
