Love comes in many forms - be it friendship, heterosexual, bi-sexual, homosexual or love for your family. In 2019, whatever love you find yourself experiencing, Netflix has something that’s sure to give you all the feels. Below is a list of our favourite romantic films and series, tailored for each unique love story.
ALEX STRANGELOVE tells the story of Alex Truelove (Daniel Doheny), a well-rounded high school senior with a wonderful girlfriend Claire (Madeline Weinstein) and a bright future ahead of him – and with plans to achieve his last teenage milestone by losing his virginity. But things get complicated when he meets Elliot (Antonio Marziale), a handsome and charming gay kid from the other side of town, who unwittingly sends Alex on a rollercoaster journey of sexual identity, kicking off a hilarious and moving exploration of love, sex and friendship in our liberated and confusing modern times. Written and directed by Craig Johnson (The Skeleton Twins, Wilson), produced by Ben Stiller, Nicky Weinstock, and Jared Ian Goldman.
An openly gay stand-up comedian who understands the importance of LGBTQ representation? Welcome to The Relaunch Of Gina!
The Relaunch Of Gina is the debut comedy special by popular Capetonian stand-up comedian Eugene Mathews. For the past eight and a half years Eugene Mathews has been normalising gay content through the medium of stand-up comedy. He tells his stories in a way which allows the funniness to overshadow the shock of a gay man talking about his authentic life experiences.
The show takes a look at the past and present of one of South Africa's most unique and refreshing voices in stand-up comedy. Eugene has been through a lot of life before and during his career as an entertainer; these things are to be spoken about!
“The Relaunch Of Gina is the comedy special where I get to talk about my life as a thirty something gay man facing irrelevance in his community. My interactions with the various characters in my life are so much funnier than it should be. I tend to put myself in weird situations just to have something fresh to talk about at my next gig so there’s that also...”
The comedy special is on at Melville Comedy Club in Melville, Johannesburg on the 29th and 30th of May 2019. Tickets are R120 and are available at https://melvillecomedy.com/products/the-relaunch-of-gina-29-may.
With our weak rand, travel, particularly international travel is a very costly pleasure. This is not so much because of the cost of the ticket, though a return trip to Cape Town in high season can cost over R4000 whereas a ticket on the same dates to Rome or Bangkok is around R7500. The bigger problem is once you are there, where are you going to stay as accommodation will cost a whole lot more? Because of this a lot of people are turning to groups like Queer Couchsurfers on Facebook, and they report that this is the way to travel. Where else can you find free places to stay when travelling around the world, or even at home in SA? You may even get a shag into the deal!
