The news that Director Rob Williams' holiday treat Make The Yuletide Gay will hit the DVD rack just in time for the holidays this year might serve as some consolation as you broil in the summer heat.

Also being distributed about the same time will be the quirky Spanish offering Chef's Special by Director Nacho G. Velilla.

In Chef's Special, restaurateur Maxi seasons his food – and his life – simply; preferring uncomplicated recipes and an unattached love life. All this changes when a hot Argentine ex-football player moves in next door. Comedy ensues as Maxi struggles to remain in the closet to his staff and family. The Spanish newspaper Diario El Mundo called the Spanish film “inspired.”

Chef's Special arrives on DVD October 20, and is available for pre-order now.

And two weeks before Thanksgiving, Make the Yuletide Gay arrives on DVD after about a year on the gay & lesbian film festival circuit.

The film gives the old comic premise of “meet my parents at Christmas” a gay spin. The movie includes the genre's three requisites: the fawning but clueless parents (the Gunnundersons), the distant parents (the Stanfords), and the cute couple who yearn for a Merry Christmas curled up in a stocking hung by the chimney with care (Olaf and Nathan).

Problem is Olaf, the big college gay rights advocate, remains closeted to his lovable parents. So when boyfriend Nathan decides to join the holiday cheer at the Gunnunderson home … well, you've seen this film, right? (Pssst: Gay double entendres and homo hijinks ensue.)

Still, Director Rob Williams' latest film is a sweet treat certain to be a gay family Christmas favorite.

Make the Yuletide Gay arrives on DVD November 10, and is available for pre-order now.
