gay film
For most people, movies give us access to experiences and characters beyond our own reality, enhancing our view of the world and the human experience. Movies have a powerful effect on our lives, and this is especially true for LGBTQ people, many of whom grow up only seeing themselves reflected back at them on-screen in gay films. A trip to the local megaplex or browsing queer-themed titles on streaming services give LGBTQ youth the chance to connect with gay characters and their stories. These moving images make us feel less alone. Hollywood isn’t always kind to LGBTQ filmmakers and gay films and characters, but things are changing. Indie filmmakers are also giving a voice to all sorts of queer artists and characters.

‘Bros’ Isn’t Perfect, But It’s Important — and Hopefully a Sign of More to Come

Bros — the first studio-produced gay rom-com directed by Nicholas Stoller and co-written by its star Billy Eichner — is not, and cannot be, all things to all people. Self-aware to a fault, the film reminds us throughout its run time that the gay community is too diverse for one[…]
