Director Statement

“A Kept Boy” was both a challenging and therapeutic journey for me. Having personally experienced this toxic dynamic it took me much time to shed my fears and reservations towards writing this film let alone making it. With this said, I am very proud of this film and believe it can help build a more empathetic understanding of what young queer people can go through to simply love and understand themselves.
