Making Love

This 1982 film starring Michael Ontkean and Harry Hamlin was groundbreaking in many ways, for it was the first mainstream Hollywood picture to tackle being closeted and gay.

My Beautiful Laundrette

Three years later, this ultimate British drama was made. Starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Gordon Warnecke, this is beautiful.


This 1987 film starred James Wilby, Hugh Grant and Rupert Graves in this EM Forster adaptation. It is about a tale of love at the turn of the 20th century.

Velvet Goldmine

A somewhat odd one, but incredibly representative. Ewan McGregor and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, in the face of jeering laughter, kissing each other in a way that the rest of the world no longer exists.


Surfers Trevor Wright and Brad Lowe have their first kiss in this incredibly sweet, and chemistry-filled scene.

Torch Song Trilogy

Intimate and intense, Torch Song Trilogy is bursting with great moments like this. This flirting scene on the bales of hay is amazing.

In & Out

When people were watching In & Out, nobody was expecting that a massive star like Tom Selleck would plant one on his co-star.


There are probably dozens of gay kisses in the Doctor Who spin-off that could have filled this spot, but it’s this wartime kiss that felt the most epic.

Days of Our Lives

It took 45 years for this US daytime drama to introduce its first gay character, and another year and a half before it gave that character someone to kiss, but they finally did it. Will and Sonny have probably the healthiest relationship in the show, and their first kiss – and all the ones after – prove that.

Eyes Wide Open

Just incredibly passionate and sexy.

Dawson’s Creek

This was the first male on male kiss on US network television. While Jack, played by Kerr Smith, went on to have a lot better kisses than this, this felt the most satisfying in more ways than one.

Brokeback Mountain

And Brokeback Mountain, the film that has probably done more for mainstream gay relationships than most people realise. The tragic story of Jack and Ennis is 10 years old now, but still feels timeless if only for the reunion kiss.
