Patrick, I still think Punks is a classic and very slept on. Glad your back brotha!


I am so happy thank goodness Patrik has come back with a new film! Wow the trailer looks really good! I applaud Patrik Ian Polk for making a new movie about the black gay experience to the silver screen. Does anyone know if this movie will be released in Toronto?
