I wanna hold your hand! Kevin
Oestenstad & Patrick Hancock
P.D.A., dir. Patrick Hancock, 2012, USA, 8 min. 
Part of the “Fun in Boys’ Shorts” shorts program.

Two gay men, Tom (Kevin Oestenstad, pictured left) and Bill (writer / director / producer Patrick Hancock, right) are walking down the street in a residential area of L.A.; one of them is eager to hold hands, the other more reticent. They discuss the issue and its broader context of their lives as “homosexualiens.” Apparently, the three easy steps to masculinity are (1) drop your voice, (2) flatten your tone, and (3) pretend you don’t care. Witty and funny, with an excellent surprise twist at the end. Highly recommended.
