Being disabled and gay is just the begining!
Verified purchase
I was down in the dumps one night when I watched this,
Being disabled and gay and having had a very competitive background in sports its hard adjust even harder when it comes to relationships and self image and confidence.
This down to earth film about two normal guys looking for love and dealing with the stuff we all have to and more.
It paints a real portrait of the reality and the ups and downs of life and love. I'm sure it a real story and thank god not another cliche gay film.
There is hope

Heartwarming and honest
Verified purchase
The movie depicts some of the daily struggles of a disabled, gay sportsman in a realistic manner, the subject of which is not too often portrayed in the media. For a film of this type, I don't think the dialogue gets cheesy as one would expect and the pace of the film is good.
I found the love-scene between the two guys to be so sincere and adorable and the indie soundtrack definitely adds charm to it. Worthy of adding this one to the collection and giving it a re-watch or two some time!

A really good honest film that deals well with the trials of a disabled gay guy finding love
Verified purchase
I really enjoyed this film. Not at all cheesy, the main characters play their parts to perfection. Brings across 100% the difficulties a gay sportsman has when he is suddenly disabled for life. I am NOT going to 'spoiler' it - just going to say, watch it, particularly but not essentially if you are a gay guy, and enjoy it. Highly recommended.

Worthy attempt to tell a different story ...
Verified purchase
This "gay movie" should be applauded for attempting to weave a different story from the usual boy meets boy movie releases. Certainly the boy meets boy element is there, but the real heart of the story is about someone coping with sudden physical disability and the impact on their life and relationships. It's refreshing to see a movie with gay characters that wants to be more than "my big fat gay wedding vol 12" or whatever!
Sadly, it is limited by small budget constraints. There's a lot of outdoor shots in what appears to be a grey, cold autumn/winter but I think its supposed to be summer! Also usual quota of wooden-top actors.
But the only way to encourage more attempts at widening the gay movie experience is to support this with your wallet!

A very sensitively beautiful film! Has tackled issues to do with sexuality and disability, as well as Gay role models in sports.
Please give it a watch!

Personal review of the film 'Morgan'
Verified purchase
I think this a very good movie showing a completely different aspect of gay life in an excellent way: even being handicapped you can enjoy a happy relationship.
I would recommend it to everybody, because most people are not familiar with such a situation or are afraid being confronted with such an important issue

As a Gay Man that happens to be Disabled I get it.
As I have battled my disability for the past twelve and a half years the emotions and errors made by the main character were the same ones that I made during my first few years of learning how to deal with losing my status as a legger. I lived in NYC, Clinton hIll to be precise, with a nice place in a great neighbourhood, a fiancé and everything going to plan, and BOOM. Chorea-acanthocytosis changed everything overnight. I self-medicated, and came home after I just couldn’t stand my now-ex.

Coming home to the UK didn’t make the emotions that he was dealing with disappear. When you’re a gay man with a strong structure and narrative about who you are it is not easy to shake it off. Most people write you off, and this film captures that feeling very well for an indy. Sometimes there were some rough edges in the narrative and the acting, but overall I found it to be the closest film to come to this issue from an angle not focused on self-pity as much as it was about how we shed that self-pity. Lucky for him romance ensued. Perhaps that’s a bit more optimistic than what I have found to be the reality.

As I’m writing this I am ‘Shielding’ due to the Pandemic, as my co-morbidites are a buffet for this pathogen. I have dealt with the pitfalls of being a Met’s Fan, Rugby-Mad, Football (Soccer in the USA) Loving guy that was active and I miss that freedom like he misses his competititive nature, and having the issue discussed is a great start. His setbacks were painful, as I remember that feeling too well. It’s a very good film to provide a fresher perspective on being Disabled and Gay, as the LGBTQIA+ Community needs to open and welcome those that have challenges that you may not comprehend and defer to ignoring the person and the topic altogether. If we can overcome the stigma of HIV there’s no reason why we can’t help our Community through outreach and acceptance as we are, as many have not reached to that level yet.

I hope that with films like this we can overcome the stigmas and prejudice that promote exclusion out of ignorance. It’s impact, especially if you’re not a part of a clique or have a group of friends that are comfortable with your disability. The issues of relationships was really nice to see ih this film. I wish that they would’ve broadened it to have some more dialogue about this with more characters from his past that have distanced him from others. It’s just a thought!

Watch it and enjoy this film. For a low-budget film with a rare focus on a part of a minority groups that still is finding its footing with inclusion I believe that this is a really inspiring film! (I bought this on iTunes).
