The Butch Factor movie scenes

The documentary tackles meanings of masculinity in gay men and culture through interviews with a great number of diverse gay men mixed with fast-paced sometimes archival tour of diverse groups of gay males from 1970s to contemporary times, with "eye candy" shots of men as well as analytical and expert presentations from writers, teachers, psychologists about their views of gay culture, masculinity, fetishism, discrimination, etc. It discusses how gay "butch" men often feel alone in their effort to integrate in general gay life as masculine males. This film, breaks through as well. Discussions include the butch gay stereotypes of leather men, bears, rodeo riders, muscle men, construction workers, truck drivers, policemen, sportsmen, and others, intertwined with questions of homophobia, stereotyping, metrosexuality, effeminacy, and fashion.
