This is a tribute to 50 gay-themed films that have truly made a difference in my life.

While the number of queer films has grown immensely during the recent turn of the century, there are so many great works that deserve a wider audience.

Many of these films are universal — people in love, people trying to find their place in the world, people being people.

I hope this video will introduce many others to some of the best works by the LGBT film community, and just some of the best films in general!

  1. If you haven't seen Show me love (aka. Fucking Åmål) it's certainly worth a watch. It was recently restored so you should keep your eyes open for a wide release.

  2. Best gay film I've seen is "Weekend". The conversations between the two characters are enlightening and it's realistic. The Brits do English-speaking gay films the best. The US ones go to cliché too often and everyone seems to have a six pack.

  3. BEAUTIFUL PRESENTATION WITH SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SONG, FROM A FILM THAT MADE ME CRY FOR 2 DAYS

  4. A good video. You didn't go the cheap path of making the whole thing a gay-kiss montage. It actually made me think about some different aspects of being gay. I still think it could've made me think of more different aspects. Portray different personalities, different moods, a more diverse range of emotions of being gay (maybe… they're universal? Maybe they're not, I don't know).
