Professional and Life Partners Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer

Filmmaker Richard Glatzer died from ALS on Tuesday at the age of 63. Glatzer was responsible for amazing gay indie films during his career. It all started in 1993 with Grief starring Alexis Arquette and Craig Chester. In 2001, he began directing with his life partner Wash Westmoreland who made an incredible transition from art porn to indie film. Richard and Wash co-directed sassy and sexy The Fluffer, the luminous Quinceañera, and The Last of Robin Hood. Glatzer will be best remembered for co-writing and directing Julianne Moore in her Oscar-winning performance in Still Alice. I’m proud to say I’ve seen all but the most recent two of Richard’s films. My favorite so far has been Quinceañera. I’m chomping at the bit to see Still Alice.

Thank you Richard for continuing to do great work.
Love to Wash at this difficult time.
