A promiscuous gay party animal falls for a young Mormon missionary, leading to crisis, cliché, and catastrophe.
At the beginning of the film, Julie (Kinky) suggests to Christian (Wes Ramsey) that they go to Funny Boy after work for karaoke and margaritas. Funny Boy Films is the production company that produced Latter Days.
Elder Aaron Davis:
When I first came to Los Angeles, it looked like just this mass of dots... all jumbled and disconnected. It was pretty disorienting.
Aaron is depicted being exposed to electroshock treatments while staying at a mental institution. These are activities which the Mormon Church may have approved of several decades ago, but not when this film was made. By the 1990s, an organization called "Evergreen" had become the unofficial organization run by Mormon psychotherapists that the church would still be using today, and they would not tolerate or recommend such treatment. Aaron would most likely be sent to therapy with one of these therapists in an effort to change his sexual preference.
