gay films i recommend


  1. liadon
  2. David

these are films i loved and also films i may not give the highest marks to but still feel they are worthy of a watch, also they are gay stories, gay themes, important gay charachters as well gay inclusive characters, and homoerotic. so not all are just "straight" gay stories. also only the top twenty is order(but may change) everything else in random order have not had time re edit as i am constantly adding to the list.

    It's probably on your list already and I missed it, but Killer Drag Queens on Dope was pretty funny, esp if you like over the top GLBT movies.
