The idea of a gay 'Steel Magnolias' like film was somewhat off putting, because like nearly every film covering the topic of sexuality, the characters are typically betrayed as vain, bed-hoping camp queens, but this film is not only an awakening for those people out there, but it sends out a message about love and true friendship. The characters in the film, who all create a very real chemistry, are those we in real life would cherish to have in our lives even for just one moment. I thought that not only was the acting flawless and the script witty and heartfelt, but the actual feel of the film was honest and had a genuine heart - be it straight or gay. If you're looking for a film that demeans homosexuality and makes hetrosexuals out to be the greater sexuality, then this film isn't for you. Go rent the American version of 'Queer as Folk', but if you're looking for a film, where without sexuality, remains a truely touching film, that'll make you cry, laugh and smile, then this is the film for you. I'd have to say that this is one of the best films I've ever seen.
