The Boy With A Bugle! (The Fatboy Chronicles, Part Two)

René Broussard

1997, 28:00 minutes, colour


One of the first movies that really had an impact on my emerging gay identity was the musical MAME with Lucille Ball and Bea Arthur, which I saw when I was six years old. My puppy love for and secret wish to be Kirby Furlong, the child actor who portrayed Patrick Dennis, the "Boy With a Bugle: is the central vehicle which drives the second installment of the Fat boy chronicles. While the main theme of the video is that of depicting the events in my sexual development which ultimately lead to my acceptance of my body ...small blue penis.. fat.. and all! Or, how I went from being so ashamed of my body I wore a t-shirt to go swimming even at night into an international nude male model ... never say diet!
