Welcome to The Parlor!
“The Parlor” is an oral storytelling series featuring Jeff + Cosgrove (stars of the HUMP! Fest short film “The Glory Hole”). The two men continue the tradition of telling intimate, raw, hilarious and touching stories from their lives.
Gay Men Draw Vaginas
While walking down the street in San Francisco, Jeff and Cosgrove were stopped by the creators of “Gay Men Draw Vaginas” and asked to participate. Their contributions are explained in this episode and were subsequently published in the anthology of drawings.
Miss Patti Calling
One year for Jeff’s Birthday, Cosgrove set out to acquire the perfect gift: a call from Miss Patti LaBelle. It didn’t go exactly as planned, but it’s a great story.
In 2014, Jeff and Cosgrove starred in a short film called “The Glory Hole.” This is where it all began! They told the true story of how they met and fell in love at a dirty bookstore in San Francisco. Although Cosgrove prefers to just call them “bookstores.” The film was made for Dan Savage’s HUMP! Fest. The screening wowed audiences and ended up winning the Best in Show Prize (based on audience voting). “The Glory Hole” didn’t end at HUMP! and continued to have a far reach, inspiring many others to open up and tell their stories. “The Glory Hole” celebrates love at first sight without shame, even if it happens in a gay hook-up spot. Jeff and Cosgrove have been together ever since that day…. 26 years later.
