Gay Brazilians Take to the Street for American Lovers in a New Film at qFlix Philadelphia

Writer and director Thales Corrêa brings his unique voice to the screen of the queer film festival in Philadelphia.

Los Angeles, 03/29/2019 / /

The Castro District in San Francisco is known as an iconic gay neighborhood and it’s a setting that gets top billing in Bathroom Stalls & Parking Lots, an outrageous new comedy by writer/director Thales Corrêa.

Brazilian Leo (Corrêa) and his friends take the streets to pursue an American fling. With the help of Grindr, they would do whatever it takes to find the guy, even if that means bar hopping all over Castro or going deep into bathroom stalls and parking lots.

The hysterical title of the film says a lot of what audiences will encounter, a frantic, gritty, dangerous, and somewhat sexy underground gay world, in the voice of immigrants who aren’t shy to speak up in loud Portuguese intertwined with their broken English. The movie takes a hilarious look at the culture of romantic relationships among gay/bisexual male youth in the Castro District. Deeper meaning comes through too, as characters explore what it means to date in today’s hook-up culture, and how dating apps have turned relationships into disposable and meaningless experiences.


The movie features a soundtrack by the Russian DJ Same K, known for his progressive house tracks written for the biggest international electronic music labels such as Anjunabeats and Armada Music.


On Saturday, March 30, 2019, at 9:30 pm, Bathroom Stalls & Parking Lots gets its world premiere at Plays & Players, 1714 Delancey, part of qFlix Philadelphia, a six-day festival of LGBTQ+ movies running March 25-31, 2019.
