Here’s a rather bizarre but also pretty cool short film. There aren’t many explicitly gay themed animations, but Flamingo Pride takes us into a CG world where nearly all of the pink birds are gay and partying 24/7.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Frustrated at being the only straight flamingo in a gay flock, our hero falls in love with a lady stork who flies by. Unable to convince her of his serious intentions, he isolates himself and endures an identity crisis. An intensive encounter inspires him to make a bold move.’
I’m not 100% what the moral viewpoint of the short is meant to be, as it seems to suggest being both gay and straight is pretty rubbish, but that’s it’s certainly not fun if you feel stuck on the outside of everything.
