Straight + Butch
For years he interviewed people – from the comfort of his bed. But tonight, Philly’s own Butch Cordora, the former In Bed with Butch host, is celebrating the launch of his new DVD Straight and Butch. The documentary goes behind the scenes of the making of his calendar a few years ago where he posed (in the nude) with heterosexual men in an homage to famous photos of days gone by.
“I’m ecstatic to announce the launch of my very first feature-length documentary,” says Cordora, who hosts a party tonight at National Mechanics in Old City (9 p.m.-2 a.m.). “I just received word that an initial 100 DVDs will be on sale tonight before they officially hit stores Tuesday morning.”
For everyone who purchases a DVD tonight, Cordora will also give out his Straight and Butch calendars. He’ll also be showing clips from the film. “Most of the straight models will be in tow to sign copies,” he says, including Gervase Peterson from Survivor.
Cordora tells us the DVD also features never-before-seen footage from a 13th photo shoot, as well as bloopers, out takes and an interview with the leading man himself. If you can’t make it to the event tonight, you can also pick up the DVD at Giovanni’s Room and on Amazon starting tomorrow.
