This week we're giving away two Blu-ray combo packs of four queer-ish movies courtesy of Focus Features. The prize packages are valued at $60 each. Two winners will be chosen at random.

You could win copies of: "Pride & Prejudice," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Milk," and "Brokeback Mountain" by joining our mailing list! Every night at midnight, we'll send you an advertisement free digest of that day's content so you won't miss any of our award winning content.

DallasBuyersClub-poster.jpgWhile you wait for your prize pack to arrive in the mail, you should check out the soon-to-be-released flick "Dallas Buyers Club." The movie opens in theaters nationwide on November 1.

A son of Texas, Ron Woodroof is an electrician and rodeo cowboy. In 1985, he is well into an unexamined existence with a devil-may-care lifestyle. Suddenly, Ron is blindsided by being diagnosed as H.I.V.-positive and given 30 days to live. Yet he will not, and does not, accept a death sentence. Spirit Award winner Matthew McConaughey portrays the real-life character, whose self-interest is galvanized into something much more.

An outsider to the gay community, Ron finds an unlikely ally in fellow AIDS patient Rayon (Gotham Independent Film Award winner Jared Leto), a transsexual who shares Ron's lust for life. Rayon also shares Ron's entrepreneurial spirit: seeking to avoid government sanctions against selling non-approved medicines and supplements, they establish a "buyers club," where H.I.V.-positive people pay monthly dues for access to the newly acquired supplies. Deep in the heart of Texas, Ron's pioneering underground collective beats loud and strong. With a growing community of friends and clients, Ron fights for dignity, education, and acceptance. In the years following his diagnosis, the embattled Lone Star loner lives life to the fullest like never before.
