The Dead Boys’ Club is the story of a young man in a world haunted by the absence of an entire generation of men that have gone before him. It’s a generation that he should have known but, because of AIDS, is one that he can only imagine, in this seminal 1992 short film by Mark Christopher ( 54, 54: The Director’s Cut).

Awkward and shy, Toby is visiting his New York cousin Packard, who gives him a pair of shoes previously owned by his recently deceased lover. When Toby dons the shoes, he is transported to the pre-AIDS 1970s world of promiscuity, hot guys, and glitter balls.  The Dead Boys’ Club is an evocative, sexy, and humorous exploration of a young man’s coming out, and an homage to the generation before him that paved the way—some with their lives.
