Out Of The Closets And Into The Cinemas!: Meeting Queer Folks In Dark Rooms

A collection of queer characters, representations, and sensibilities on film. From queer masterpieces to camp classics, documentaries to romantic comedies, horror flicks to historical biographies. From independent art house films to multiplex popcorn blockbusters, epic sagas to festival shorts, Oscar winners to Direct-To-Video. From the realistic to the stereotypical, the explicit to the subtexted, the uplifting to the oppressive. We really are everywhere. (Except, of course, in the millions of films that pretend that we aren’t.)

Note that this is not exactly a “Pride” list, since it is not limited to films that present us in a positive manner. Some of these films include extremely violent gay bashings and killings. Others have very minor blink-and-you’ll-miss-them LGBT cameos or only include…
