Lokesh Kumar’s Tamil feature Film “My Son is Gay” continues to rock the film festival circuit and is currently gearing up for the premiere in Chennai International Film Festival on December 15th. The film has received a U/A certificate from the CBFC without any cuts.
For starters, My Son Is Gay is a rare Tamil film which is centred around a protagonist being gay and not taking any particular stand or being dismissive as such. Funded by a small group of like-minded investors, the film is attracting a lot of attention and for the right reasons in the festival circuit right now.
