After a few years up north in New York, out and proud Jason Potts returns to his Tennessee hometown only to find things have not changed for the LGBT teenagers. Being gay is still the worst thing to be in Smyth, Tennessee. Wanting to help the gay teenagers in a small way, Jason hatches a plan to them some hope while he's home for the weekend. Things quickly spiral out of control and Jason is put in charge of the first ever gay pride parade in the sleepy small southern town.

Critic Reviews for Tennessee Queer

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

In attempting to skewer persistent red state-style homophobia, writer-producer Mark Goshorn Jones and fellow co-director Ryan Earl Parker too often overplay the stereotypes - both gay and straight - to diminishing returns.

The title is provocative but the comedy is accessible and the attitude generous in this made-in-Memphis feature... Call it 'Mayberry LGBT.'

March 24, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A somewhat dated and preachy but well-intentioned dramedy. That the film, shot in 2012, strikes me as dated at times is actually a very good thing.
