Gay cabler Logo will premiere writer/director Tom Gustafson's spellbinding gay musical fantasy Were The World Mine September 7, the network announced Tuesday.

This is what On Top Magazine had to say about the film last November, right after California voters approved a gay marriage ban.

“If you could make someone love you, would you?” asks Gustafson in Were The World Mine.

The movie, a musical adaption of William Shakespeare's classic A Midsummer Night's Dream, has racked up an impressive collection of prizes this season on the gay and lesbian film festival circuit. In October, it opened the 13th annual Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival to huge cheers.

And with good reason. Were The World Mine is a love potion that shuns homophobia at a moment when we seem to be experiencing the second coming of Stonewall; it is the zeitgeist of a post-Prop 8 gay community. While we're certain its release at this moment in history is a mere coincidence – dare we say it – we could all use a feel-good movie about now, a movie that reminds us that the course of true love never did run smooth.

High school outcast Timothy (Tanner Cohen) is obsessed with handsome rugby star Jonathon (Nathaniel David Becker) in a small homophobic town, when his drama teacher (Wendy Robie) begins auditions for A Midsummer Night's Dream. Timothy, cast as Puck, engages is some Elizabethan mischief of his own when he conjures up a potion that makes Jonathon love him, and turns half the town gay.

Mayhem ensues as men suddenly leave their wives and girls chase after girls. The mayor begins handing out gay marriage licenses, saving the first one for himself and his future husband. But what happens when Timothy reluctantly gives up control of the town?

Were The World Mine is Gustafson's feature-length follow up to his award-winning short film Fairies.

The film brims with energy during its infectious musical fantasy sequences, where Gustafson has superbly managed to meld Shakespearean soliloquies to contemporary music. Cohen's on-screen performance is captivating and his singing voice electrifying. He brilliantly balances between being a believable fairy under the weight of a homophobic community and a masculine, self-assured gay youth.

There's little not to like in the gay film, but we do take exception to a dissonant, and narrowly pursued, storyline involving Timothy's relationship with his mother, and her emerging acceptance of her gay son, which felt unresolved.

Gay monthly The Advocate said of the film, “Hedwig And The Angry Inch had better move over.”

Make sure to catch Logo's premiere September 7 at 9PM ET/PT.
