Issues 101 is a gay-themed independent romantic drama film released in 2002. Issues 101 played at gay and lesbian film festivals throughout 2002 and 2003. This film was the debut of pop rock singer Grammy-winner Kelly Clarkson as an actress.


Joe comes out and goes to college. He finds himself one-third of a love triangle with two other guys, one gay and the other "straight with issues."


The film attracted a formal complaint by a viewer to the New Zealand Broadcast Standards Authority after it aired during the Triangle Television gay television festival in Auckland in January 2003. The BSA ruled that the scenes depicting oral and anal sex were offensive and the timeslot of its broadcast (8.30PM) was unsuitable for children.

DVD release[edit]

Issues 101 was released on Region 1 DVD on April 13, 2004.
