Don't Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves

23:00 - 00:00

Swedish mini-series about the struggle the homosexual community had with AIDS. In 1982, carefree student Rasmus arrives in Stockholm from rural Varmland having hidden his homosexuality all his life. He throws himself headlong into the gay scene and is taken under the wing of Paul, a bitchy but caring queen with a close group of gay friends. Benjamin, a Jehovah's Witness doing his rounds, knocks on Paul's door and is identified by Paul as a homosexual. As part of coming to terms with his sexual identity and his crisis of faith Benjamin accepts an invitation to Paul's Christmas party, where he meets Rasmus. Rasmus and Benjamin fall in love immediately and form a close and powerful bond, despite Rasmus's indiscretions and Benjamin's religion. Until now, news of an increase in HIV infection has been ignored by the group and the gay community as a whole. But soon they can ignore it no longer as AIDS begins to take its devastating, heartbreaking toll on families and friendships.
