Don't Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves is a beautiful and heart-wrenching love story set in Stockholm's gay community about Benjamin, the 18-year-old son of devout Jehovah's Witnesses in rural Sweden, who is struggling to come to terms with his homosexuality. Moving to Stockholm in the 1980s, Benjamin begins to find himself, discovering and embracing the city s vibrant gay culture. There he meets Rasmus, another recent arrival, and the two fall in love. But a terrible storm is brewing, and as the decade progresses the scourge of AIDS takes a horrific toll on their close-knit community. Don t Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves - the title reflects the paranoia and fear surrounding the disease at the time - is based on a bestselling trilogy by novelist and playwright Jonas Gardell. Bristling with the joy and energy of youth, freedom and first love, it is a story of a generation of gay men who endured rampant prejudice and the specter of HIV, but it ultimately ends on an uplifting note.
