My Loneliness Is Killing Me was a reaction to seeing so many films about gay and bisexual men that weren’t about gay or queer culture; it was about being part of a community and wanting to see the lives of myself and the gay and queer men I know reflected onscreen, especially when it comes to club and hookup culture. There are so many stories to tell in this world, and so many that aren’t being told.
I’m so proud of everything it’s done.

Synopsis: colourful femme Elliott appears to be the life of the party.
But behind the make-up, he struggles in his search for sexual intimacy. When he manages to lure the animalistic Jack to his apartment for a late night hook up, he unexpectedly unearths a dark emotional connection. Touching on the hot topics of hookup culture and toxic masculinity, My Loneliness is Killing Me explores loneliness and division among gay and queer communities against a cold, neon metropolis.
