205 Groovy Gay Movies Worth Watching



It's time once again to post my annual list of the grooviest LGBTQ films, so I've selected 205 movies (in chronological order), adding five "new" ones (in pink) that I felt deserved to be included this year. Many of the films are guilty pleasures, some simply give off a very queer vibe, and a few are just interesting relics of their time.

I would like to nominate "B&B" for your top 205...instead of "Trick"...or "Latter Days".

Thanks for the recommendation, Alan. I did see B&B last year - and I liked it so it may show up on my annual list someday. But Trick - which is one of my favorite gay movies - and Latter Days - which I also liked - will always remain on my list.
