Three new titles of gay interest make their home video debut on Tuesday. The award-winning documentary The Cockettes (Strand Releasing Home Video) tells the true story of the outrageous, gender-bending San Francisco theatrical troupe of the late '60s, whose over-the-top stage productions included Tinsel Tarts in a Hot Coma and Journey to the Center of Uranus, featuring soon-to-be icons Divine and Sylvester. The DVD includes nine deleted scenes and an interview with directors David Weissman and Bill Weber. Sundance Channel Home Entertainment has two new titles: Alex and Andrew Smith's The Slaughter Rule--a gritty drama about small-town football featuring Ryan Gosling (The Believer), David Morse, and a strong dollop of gay subtext--and out filmmaker Christopher Münch's The Sleepy Time Gal, starring Jacqueline Bisset and Nick Stahl.
