In the closeted USA of the early 1950's, 'temperamental' was slang for 'homosexual, part of a created language of secret words gay men used to communicate with one another. The Temperamentals chronicles the genesis of The Mattachine Society (one of the first homosexual societies in the US) as well as the love affair between two of its founding members, activist Harry Hay and well known fashion designer Rudi Gernreich. Set to the backdrop of 1950's Los Angeles, the struggle, bravery, risk, sacrifice and passion  of Gay history is brought to life in a fascinating and utterly human way.

Cast: Angelo De Cata, Tim Constantine, Angus Cameron, Jai Luke, Sebastian Bertoli.
