Produced and written by John Greyson, Urinal uses its fantasy trappings to offer a searing indictment against intolerance. The story was inspired by police persecution of homosexuals in Canadian restrooms. A urinal becomes a gathering place for an otherworldly group seeking retribution and justice. Depicted are the ghosts of such famous gay, lesbian and bisexual artists as Sergei Eisenstein (played by Paul Bettis), Frida Kahlo (Olivia Rojas), Yukio Mishima (David Gonzales) and Langston Hughes (George Spelvin); Oscar Wilde is represented by his literary creation Dorian Gray (Lance Elg). The unsettling nature of Urinal is emphasized by Greyson's stylistic decision to utilize a documentary approach to his material.
