200 Groovy Gay Movies You Need to See



It's time once again to post my annual list of the grooviest LGBTQ films, and this year I've expanded it to 200 movies (in chronological order), adding 57 "new" ones (in pink). Many of the films are guilty pleasures, a few just have a memorable gay character or scene, and some simply give off a very queer vibe. And then are those that are just interesting relics of their time - like the 1982 Ryan O'Neal film, Partners, which I decided to include after reading this 2004 IMDb review:
I would like to point out to all the people who felt it necessary to take offence at this movie: It was pretty groundbreaking for the time it was released. Speaking as a lone gay teenager in the Bible Belt, it was very informative to see people such as the "caftan clad landlord" and realize that there were places in the world where men could live together as couples. The landlord's story of his relationship was very touching. This movie holds a special place in my heart because it was the FIRST movie that let me know I was not alone in the world. If you are not gay, you don't understand what I am pointing out. If you are gay, and you are that offended at the gay stereotyping in the movie, then you were born in California, New York or somewhere else progressive and should consider yourself fortunate you didn't have to rely on movies such as this one for acceptance.
Although I wasn't able to feature every groovy gay movie, hopefully you will find a few of your favorites (and if you don't, please leave me a comment with their titles).
