Beard, Leather, Ginger and Beyond
Every once in a while it’s always refreshing to take a break from all these shameless Hollywood manwhores and shift our focus on the rest of the population. It is my pleasure to get the word out for independent filmmakers like Patrick McGuinn who directed this wonderful film “Leather” starring Chris Graham and Andrew Glaszek. It’s like “Stranger by the Lake” with more body hair and less penises – so it’s much better. I just love it when they put contrasting hotness together. If you’re into any of these – leather, beards, hairy chests, gingers, blonds, strawberry blonds, mustaches, lakes, mountain, waistcoats and plaid shirts then you’ll love the film which is available on DVD now. Well if you’re not into any of those then you wouldn’t be here in the first place would you? Watch the two trailers after the jump. The second one is NSFW-ish but it’s on YouTube so just be warned.

Leather is the contemporary story of a young man, Birch, who lives in the Catskill Mountains. He stays in a small cottage in a remote region with Walter, an older man and mentor who has an estranged gay son, Andrew. Birch and Walter have a friendship that involves carpentry, fishing, hunting and making items from leather. After his father dies, Andrew returns to his childhood home with his gay boyfriend from the city, Kyle, to assess Walter’s estate. A forgotten friend from Andrew’s boyhood, Birch captivates Andrew and Kyle. At first they mock Birch and his earnest, simple ways. After rigorous mountain living, they realize that Birch is wholesome, kind and benevolent. He only seeks what is right and virtuous in the complex affairs of Walter’s estate, and all of their futures.
