A brutally honest and hilarious exploration of contemporary masculinity.

About

Jimmy and Corgan are BFFs. Hurtling towards their 30s, life is filled with a mix of Tinder, Grindr, binge-drinking and half-hearted hook-ups. As the wedding of Corgan’s ex looms and Jimmy’s love life stagnates, the two struggle to get their lives in working order. FAG/STAG is one story, told twice, from the perspective of two (very) unreliable narrators. Brimming with laughs, tenderness and quarter-life-crisis ennui, this is a brutally honest and hilarious exploration of contemporary masculinity and what it means to have a best mate when you’re stuck being your worst self.
