A Redditor recently asked fellow users to name the first LGBT movie they watched, and the responses ranged from 1980s erotic horror films to ‘90s indie darlings to modern-day blockbusters. As these commenters can probably attest, there’s nothing quite like seeing yourself reflected on screen… “I still clearly remember watching my first gay movie. It was Taekwondo, directed by Marco Berger. I downloaded it online without telling anyone and watched it on my computer alone in my room one night....

Is there something wrong with the LGBTI film industry? A viral Twitter thread has dragged Netflix because of the lack of diversity in their LGBTQ Film section. Despite the whole acronym being included in the classification, there are a disproportionate amount of films focusing on gay men. The conversation sparked when Twitter user @dspxna wrote: ‘Someone let netflix know that 678 gay men films and 2 lesbian films doesn’t make a lgbtq section ’. https://twitter.com/dspxna/status/1032691490861080576?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1032691490861080576&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.gaystarnews.com%2Farticle%2Fnetflix-gay-films-lgbt-lesbian%2F That’s a slight exaggeration, but the stats weigh up....
LGBTQ-Movies

These are the LGBTQ films we’re looking forward to this year. 2017 blessed our screens with the likes of Call Me By Your Name, an eloquent story of a forbidden love set in an Italian summer. And, although the film was snubbed at the Golden Globes, there’s still something that needs to be said for its success. LGBTQ films are no longer cheap. They’re no longer budget films that nobody cares about. They’re slowly making their way into the mainstream, providing...

It must be love, love looove. With gay romance Call Me By Your Name scoring major nominations at the Academy Awards, and upcoming film Love, Simon set to be one of the biggest rom-coms of the year with a gay lead character, there’s so much same-sex lovey dovey action on our screens right now. What’s more, LGBTQ representation on television has gained so much ground in recent years, with same-sex couples popping up in our favourite major series. So to celebrate the...

While mainstream Hollywood continues to catch up when it comes to LGBT+ representation in blockbuster movies, there are plenty of directors out there highlighting issues within the gay community through slick visuals. For now, some of the most compelling and hard-hitting LGBT+ cinema exists in short films.

It’s Easter weekend, so what better excuse to curl up with all your chocolate eggs and watch a good movie — and that’s where Netflix comes in. The service has plenty of LGBT+ films that are good enough to distract you from the fact that you’re not lounging on a beach somewhere sipping cocktails in the sun… Okay, maybe not. But they are good. Grab a cup of tea, five Cadbury’s Creme Eggs and tune into one of these nine films...

These are the scenes that left us wanting more. Hollywood has come a long way when it comes to equal representation.

From King Cobra to Moonlight, is this year's crop of queer films the strongest yet? Are we living in a golden age of gay film? Possibly. From Pride to Carol to The Danish Girl to Tangerine, the last few years have seen a slew of award-worthy films featuring gay and LGBTI characters. Granted, major films featuring prominent lesbian and trans characters have been sadly thin on the ground this year. That said, representation of gay men on screen has been strong and...

Reddit has been hosting a semi-squabblefest which finds the community bickering ad infinitum about what films and television shows are markedly bad for the gays. It begins, as such semi-squabblefests often do, with a seemingly benign question presented by a certain ShawnSparkles: “Any shows or movies that you feel give gay men a ‘bad name?'” Unsurprisingly, the answer is yes. “Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson do a great job playing Cam and Mitchell on Modern Family,” says libitum, “but the gay stereotyping is always...
