Holding the Man, DVD



Gay-themed Australian drama based on Timothy Conigrave's memoir.

The film follows the relationship of Conigrave (Ryan Corr) and his partner John (Craig Stott), who first met at their Catholic high school.

With John the star captain of the school's football team and Tim an aspiring actor in the school play, the pair seem like an unlikely couple but continue their journey together through high school and university where they allow their love for each other to help them overcome the challenges being gay men in '80s Australia throws at them.

However, one challenge proves too much for the pair after they are both diagnosed with HIV in 1985.
