Check out NALIP Member Dominic Colon's Projects Crush and SKIN
It’s Prom Night in the South Bronx, and Michael is in for an evening of horror, hilarity, and hope as he decides whether or not to man up and “kick it” to his high school Crush or “punk out” and let him walk into the sunset with “some hairy wilder beast bitch.”
Crush adds a Bronx, Gay, Latino spin to classic teen coming of age movie. In the beginning of the movie, we see our hero Michael, drunk over a toilet in a bathroom at his High School Senior Prom. Michael is torn about graduation and the possibility of never seeing his long crush, his homeroom buddy Brandon. Michael’s prom date and best friend Nikkie, offers Michael encouragement and tough love to get him to approach Brandon about his feelings. Michael and Brandon bump heads, sending Michael into a fantasy sequence in which Michael’s feelings for Brandon are reciprocated. When Michael realizes it was all just a dream, he is thrown into the now or never moment of finally having to face his fears of coming out to Brandon or let that moment slip away and having to forever wonder “what if?”
