Pretty Boy Josh
Pretty Boy Josh is an experimental short film that explores the stigma of homosexuality in the Miami Latinx community, illustrates the dangers of hypermasculinity, and voices the possibility of living an optimistic queer life. Told through the lens of a gay, Latino, and chronically ill young man, voiceovers, movement, archive footage, and sound are utilized to express this personal story of perseverance and self-acceptance.
