The after-party will take place at 8:30 p.m. at Johnsons (2340 Wilton Dr, Wilton Manors).

“We’re thrilled to debut ‘All Male, All Nude: Johnsons’ for our loyal film fans and newest cutting-edge cinema supporters,” said Victor Gimenez, executive director of the OUTshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival. “We invite cinephiles to help us celebrate the creativity, camaraderie and outstanding contributions that the LGBTQ+ community has made to both the local and international filmmaking industry. This event will help us raise funds to foster new talent and showcase independent filmmaking that stimulates discussion regarding LGBTQ+ awareness, lifestyles, diversity and inclusiveness.”
In this sexy follow-up film to director Gerald McCullouch’s (CSI, Daddy, the BearCity films) popular, steamy 2017 documentary, “All Male, All Nude”, “All Male, All Nude: Johnsons” will take audiences on a journey into the unique world of male stripping and a small gay strip club, Johnsons, located in America’s Second Gayest City per capita, Wilton Manors, Florida. Wilton Manors is the new home to the club’s creator and owner Matt Colunga, an award-winning body builder who was introduced in the first film and has spent the last 24 years in the male entertainment industry. Along the way, Colunga has rebranded the gay male strip club experience while becoming a beacon to this intriguing industry.
