To avoid being sent to Vietnam, Danny (Kevin Coughlin, star of MARYJANE and THE YOUNG RUNAWAYS) and Elliot (Larry Casey of THE EROTIC ADVENTURES OF ROBINSON CRUSOE) appear before the draft board claiming to be a homosexual couple.
Although the boys are declared unfit for duty, a suspicious Army colonel (Jack Starrett of BLAZING SADDLES) decides to confirm their story... forcing the bosom buddies to lease a love nest on the queer side of town.
When their lifestyle costs Elliot his job at a posh country club and Danny the trust of his stewardess girlfriend, the pair begins to wonder if beating the draft is worth all the trouble.
THE GAY DECEIVERS is a rare theatrical film from TV veteran Bruce Kessler (THE A-TEAM, BAYWATCH NIGHTS) and features a larger-than-life performance by Michael Greer (FORTUNE AND MEN S EYES), one of Hollywood s first openly gay actors.
Praised for its merciless lampoon of American homophobia and condemned for setting back the gay rights movement, THE GAY DECEIVERS is a unique satire in the vein of TOOTSIE and VICTOR/VICTORIA, set against the backdrop of a Hollywood that no longer exists and societal prejudices that haven t changed in half a century.
