CGiii Comment

A tribute to Charles Lum, radical filmmaker, HIV activist, kinkster and eternal sweetheart, told through the films he's left behind. Collated by his long-time collaborator Todd Verow, watch Charly navigating hooking up with HIV, kinky trips to leather conventions, and evolving into his 60s as a poz queer elder.
