Starring one of our favourites Joseph Gordon-Levitt Mysterious Skin is a punch in the stomach film.

Deeply disturbing yet slightly beautiful. It’s a carefully crafted piece of story telling following the life’s of two young men who discover they share a horrible past together.

Brian (Brady Corbet) is a young man obsessed with alien abductions and believes that he was taken away at the age of 8 after waking with brief amnesia and a nose bleed. His journey to uncover the truth leads him to Neil (Gordon-Levitt) a teenage hustler who lives and breathes sex.

The unlikely two embark on a path of discovery.

This film is intensely painful to watch, harrowing, sickening yet the characters are rich and full, that you simply can’t take your attention away from it. Incredibly acted, you truly feel you’re on the journey with these two sad characters as they learn the truth about their childhoods’.

A dark, intense film.

A note from the editor.

These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.

Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.

If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.

Thank you.
