ALL MAN: The International Male Story journeys across three decades of the catalog’s unlikely but lasting impact on fashion, masculinity, and sexuality in America. Gene Burkard, a once-closeted Midwesterner and GI, found freedom in San Diego, where he transformed men’s fashion into something cosmopolitan, carefree, and trend-setting. International Male reached gay and straight customers alike as it redefined images of masculinity in American culture, generating revenue and circulation in the millions.
This character-driven documentary crafts a portrait of a band of outsiders who changed the way men would look—at themselves, at each other—and how the world would look at them. This is their story—a modern day fairy tale about a dream that really did come true.

Riverside Queerness reveals hard moments in the Prairies’ shadowed queer history. Three storytellers navigate muddy waters that is Manitoba’s subconsciousness; where truth is blurred by the power of the currents.
