    Learning_To_Kiss.html
  • Try to ask and answer questions that are thoughtful and can provoke discussion. A simple “yes” or “no” will rarely lead to an interesting conversation, but on the other hand, make sure to be succinct and don’t go on too many rambling life stories when you’re answering questions!
    Conversation_Topics.html
  • Yes, a small bit of mystery attracts consideration, but should you seem aloof, unapproachable, or extremely popular, you’re most likely turning away possible dates before they even look twice. The same principle goes for both gay males and women here: the “make them chase you” advice is well-meant, but ill-fated!

  • A proud mother of a gay son showed her support for her son and for equality by starting a blog and a website that offers gay friendly greeting cards. Here she writes about her desire for marriage equality.
    A_Moms_Support.html
  • While my focus, given the nature of the website, is upon gay marriage (or same-sex marriage, if you prefer), one must look at the issue in the context of all marriage, homosexual and heterosexual. My approach in this piece will be to examine some of the common misunderstandings propagated by the opponents of gay marriage.
    Marriage_Equality_Misconceptions.html
  • This video takes a fun and completely different angle on the issue of legality of gay marriage. Playing on various stereotypes–of gays and of the notion of marriage–it uses humor to diffuse a divisive subject.

    Open_Letter_to_Straight_Men.html
  • The term, homophobia, is often misused. It actually means an irrational fear of homosexuals or of homosexual acts. The term that is more aptly applied to what we mean when we often describe someone who is “homophobic” is heterosexism.
    Homophobia.html
  • The vendors of hatred, mostly demagogic preachers and politicians, are making a lot of sales among their naive followers. Most of the buyers of their products are among the least educated and most impoverished members of society. Of course, those are just the sort of people who are most susceptible to all forms of scapegoating.
    Homophobia-phobia.html
  • Internalized homophobia is a social problem that impacts all of us. It keeps othewise perfectly good men from developing fully. It keeps these men from becoming part of our community, because they are ashamed to be associated with some of us.
    Homophobia_Internalized.html
  • This video submitted by someone on Youtube is related to the article on internalized homophobia. It reinforces many of the ideas related to self-hatred, bias, stereotyping and prejudice.
    Homophobic_Gay_Guys.html
  • In our society (and I do not believe this is limited to the U.S. or even just Western cultures), the group that has most recently made strides in achieving legal equality is often at the forefront of the reactionary urge of granting that equal status to others who follow.
    Homophobic_Irony.html
  • This video is actually a clip from a radio interview with Representative Barney Frank (D-MA). Prior to this he called Justice A. Scalia a homophobe because of his lengthy written dissenting opinion attacking GLBT people and gay sex.
    Barney_Frank_Calls_Justice_Scalia_A_Homophobe.html
  • According to the “macho-man” who poses as Michelle Bachman’s husband, I am a barbarian. Lots of people called me a gentleman, a friend, a bit of a geek and many other things…but never a barbarian. It sure seems to me that my friends were more accurate than Bachman’s prissy husband, but maybe I am wrong. Still, Michelle and her husband believe they can set me on the “right” – or “righteous” path.

  • A group of polls for gay, bisexual and curious men about themselves and their experiences.
    Polls.html
  • Current_Gay_Poll.html
  • Here is a discussion of a poll dealing with the self-identified sexual orientation of our website visitors.
    Poll_Results-Website_Visitors.html
  • This is not a scientific study. Anyone could choose to lie, try to be funny or whatever. What strikes me about this is how closely our results parallel those of actual studies of the population–studies that involved actual measurements rather than self-reports.
    Poll_Results-Penis_Size.html
  • Poll_Results-Coming_Out_Age.html
  • Nearly half of all respondents had their first sexual experience at age 14 or below. A clear majority of respondents have had a sexual experience with another guy by the time they finished high school. Relatively few guys have their first same-sex sexual awakening during the middle age crisis years or beyond.

  • The British television series Skins is one of those rare dramatic narrative efforts that manages to capture adolescents on the cusp of adulthood with all of the angst, hope, hormones and tenderness that they embody. Each episode of the series is produced with attention to production values found only in the best feature films.

  • The struggle Nathan faces with his self-contradictory urges is the meat of the plot. He wants to be with Maggie, but he knows he would never want to give up men (plural).
    Race_to_Bottom.html
  • The protagonist is a former small town cop who decides to spend a wild summer in “the big city,” although I am not sure that such a description of West Hollywood is particularly accurate. What we discover is a self-indulgent petty small town, a self-inflicted ghetto.
    Circuit.html
  • This German comedy revolves around a self-absorbed, self-important father and his gay son. Guess which one is in the fashion industry. Wrong, it’s the straight dad.
    Fashion_Victims.html
  • Lionel, a gay man in a long term relationship, discovers that one of his grandparents was originally Polish. For a reason that this film never explains, Lionel takes that bit of news as a clue to his dominant identity. He takes on a spiritual and physical journey to discover what it means to be Polish.
    Stealth.html
  • As with any anthology, the quality of these four character studies varies. Anyone familiar with the term “on the DL” or “on the down low” will already know, the subjects of these short films (TV episodes) are African-American men who lead bisexual lives with the homosexual part of their lives kept in the closet.
    The_DL_Chronicles.html
  • The Laramie Project was first created for the stage, but Moises Kaufman has done a superb job of adapting it to the cinematic medium. It is remarkable in both concept and execution. A team of interviewers descended upon Laramie, Wyoming following the Matthew Shephard murder to interview a couple hundred townspeople about their own reactions to the incident and its thunderous aftermath.
    The_Laramie_Project.html
  • The plot, centering on an aging lesbian couple, is more complex than others in the Donald Strachey detective series, and the acting is up to the challenge…for the most part. The characters are engaging and the villains are thoroughly villainous, as they should be.
    On_The_Other_Hand_Death.html
  • While Three Dancing Slaves has some fascinating vignettes, I can’t identify a theme that ties them together. We get a glimpse into the rather turbulent lives of a widowed father and, mostly, his three young adult sons.
    Three_Dancing_Slaves.html
  • Set in a gay neighborhood in Madrid during a period of gentrification, Chuecatown (Boystown) is centered upon two lovers. These are not the typical partners of gay movies, though. In looks they range from average to somewhere below that threshold. In wits they are well below.
    Chuecatown.html
  • This movie (Be Mine) is a waste of time to watch or to read about. Use your time more wisely by taking a walk with your dog or your special someone.
    Be_Mine.html
  • Ciao is a nice, little romantic piece that doesn’t wrap it all up at the end, leaving just a little room for viewer interpretation and speculation. This is not a film that will raise any big questions for further thought, but it is a movie that is life affirming for all LGBT people.
    Ciao.html
  • The films title takes on two meanings as these two characters, one of whom is a trans take a journey across the continent (i.e., transAmerica) as they learn about each others. The film combines the conventions of travel, long absent father, befuddled parents and longing for ones true identity and combines them with respect and cinematic care.
    Transamerica.html
  • The film explores a burgeoning lust turned to love between Mateo and the tourist Jerome (Justin DeLeon), which is a bit problematic, given that Mateo is engaged to a beautiful young local woman. Following a rather predictable and familiar story arc whenever an out, proud gay man and a closeted, traditional man intertwine, there are no surprises in store for viewers.
    Ang_Lalake_Sa_Parola.html
  • The title comes from a part of the body that lead character, Marieta wants to lose–surgically. Her impressive penis is the bane of her existence and is the barrier between her and her goal to live fully as a woman.
    20_Centimeters.html
  • Action is choreographed and coincides brilliantly with camera presence to reveal the tapestries of theme that parallel the plot. Often the film seems more like an illustrated story book that is being read aloud by some deranged uncle.
    Querelle.html
  • Directing icon Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Fox And His Friends is part gay drama, part con artist genre film and part predictable German angst. Released in 1975, this film doesn’t suffer from age, although it is far from the classic that I expected.
    Fox_And_His_Friends.html
  • Like A Brother is much like a literary short story that focusses upon character development and lets plot fall by the wayside, except that the film has an interesting plot as far as we see it. But only when thinking of it as a short story–after the fact–did I begin to respect this small film (less than an hour in length).
    Like_A_Brother.html
  • The Opposite Of Sex moves from romance through melodrama to action-adventure to raise stimulating questions about the role of sex both inside and out of a loving relationship. The director manages to keep a reign on what might have become a runaway horse with an exquisite performance by Christina Ricci.
    Opposite_Of_Sex.html
  • Velvet Goldmine looks at the rise and fall of glam rock through the eyes of a journalist using one self-destructive musician as the everyman pop-idol (forgive the oxymoron, please) representing a generation of gender bending rebels. The visual presentation captures the figurative and literal glitter with the angst that exists in the faces, music and life of the artists and their hangers-on.
    Velvet_Goldmine.html
  • If you are searching for cinematic art, Make The Yuletide Gay is not the movie for you. However, this film does not set out to be art. It sets modest goals and accomplishes them with a professionalism that is rare in such a “popcorn and candy” movie.
    Make_The_Yuletide_Gay.html
  • This often told tale of a young boy who seems more comfortable doing things usually associated with girls than other boys gets no new insights from this rather formulaic presentation. If you enjoy movies that allow you to predict every development from beginning to end in search of a not particularly unique message, Ready? OK! is for you.
    Ready_OK.html
  • Maturity reigns in this touching, perhaps heart-wrenching Italian film. At its core it examines the commitment of a fulfilling gay relationship and the pain that sometimes accompanies investing mature love into a coupling.
    Saturn_In_Opposition.html
  • Addressing issues of sexual responsibility, truthfulness and labels, The 24th Day is an intelligent suspense film with the addition of the pleasing scenery provided by Scott Speedman and James Marsden. The film also gives us a fresh angle on HIV/AIDS, exploring the intersection of the rational and irrational fears associated with the diagnosis.
    The_24th_Day.html
  • Gay filmmakers seem to have a fascination with street hustlers. This seems to be particularly true of European gay filmmakers. Unfortunately, Night Watch does not go very far beyond the formula. Set during the one night prior to “All Souls” day in Buenos Aires, it tips its hat to Latin American lore by introducing a touch of the super-natural, and it does accomplish that with a bit of cinematic subtlety, but that sets it apart only marginally from the rest.
    Night_Watch.html
  • Most anthologies of gay themed shorts are a mixed bag in terms of quality at best. Available Men is a cut above the rest in this regard. Although there is a range, most of these seven films have at least something of interest in them.
    Available_Men.html
  • Here’s the deal: Most people will rate Hedwig and the Angry Inch much higher than I have, but I viewed this cult favorite after having seen John Cameron Mitchell’s later masterpiece, Shortbus. Perhaps I am simply too stingy to give five films by the same director five stars.
    Hedwig_And_The_Angry_Inch.html
  • Dare.html
  • Any description of the plot of Zerophilia invites simplification of theme and risks divulging too much. I’ll tell you this much, because you will learn it from reading the cover copy, it deals with a protagonist who changes gender characteristics uncontrollably.
    Zerophilia.html
  • Part psychological thriller, part gay romance, part bisexual exploration, part incestuous shocker–One To Another is a thinking person’s film. It is the story of four late adolescents who have been inseperable since childhood. But this is far from the standard coming of age drama or teen-hijinx-movie.
    One_To_Another.html
  • Seductively disturbing and disturbingly seductive, Ma Mere is a film that pulls no punches. It addresses Oedipal urges head on, and then sets about fulfilling those urges in the most nightmarish of ways. Director Christophe Honore` uses a setting that is almost surrealistically sublime as a counterpoint to the agony within the main characters.
    Ma_Mere.html
  • Bedrooms and Hallways combines the superb writing with solid (sometimes over the top, sometimes subdued) performances that I have come to expect from any movie to which BBC Films lends its name. Ultimately this film is less about the tribulations of lasting love than it is about the fluidity of sexual identity and passion.
    Bedrooms_And_Hallways.html
  • Breakfast_With_Scott.html
  • If you’re looking for a film that won’t make you think too much, you may have stumbled onto a perfect fit with Slutty Summer. All the pieces are there for a relaxing evening–decent acting, direction and writing, although none of the artists are overly inspired or inspiring.
    Slutty_Summer.html
  • This truly powerful gay film stands apart from most others. Unlike many films seeking a gay and gay friendly audience, The Bubble takes on much more than the issue of coming out (or coming of age).
    Bubble.html
  • Set in 1820s eastern Europe, In the Arms of My Enemy is fundamentally a story of the bond between brothers as they struggle to survive in unforgiving times. The film follows two pairs of brothers whose difficult lives intersect. Neither the plot nor the characters are particularly complex, but the story is told with a deft hand that allows the themes to emerge without trite conventions.
    In_The_Arms_Of_My_Enemy.html
  • Broken Sky requires an immense amount of patience. It is very different from most other films that we usually see. Eventually, though, those differences are what distinguishes this film. The film’s strength is the boldness of its narrative strategy. The weakness is the redundance within it.
    Broken_Sky.html
  • Director Spencer Schilly and his cast turn a simple premise into an interesting examination of a polyamorous gay relationship and its impact upon views of self-worth in this sometimes light but often dark film. I did not come away from The Houseboy with any clearer picture of it as an alternative lifestyle, but I did gain insight into the impact of rejection and alternative reactions to that emotion.
    The_Houseboy.html
  • Those who are familiar with the Gus Van Sant’s later and higher budget works may find Mala Noche to be rough and unpolished. However, the visual technique is purposeful, reflecting the influence of the cinema verite` movement in vogue in independent films of that era (1985).
    Mala_Noche.html
  • Sara Rue and Kett Turton turn in two engaging performances in this retelling of a familiar tale with a Goth twist including a bow to Stevie Nicks. For many, the music will be a welcome bonus; for all, the visual and spiritual pleasures of these adeptly portrayed characters will be the lasting impression.
    Gypsy_83.html
  • Shortbus deserves the widest possible audience, but that will be difficult to achieve. Examining the symbiotic relationships among sex, self-discovery, self-expression and connecting on a deep level with other human beings, this sometimes funny, sometimes poignant and always emotionally engaging film demonstrates the cinematic mastery of John Cameron Mitchell.
    Shortbus.html
  • Tensions between the closet and being out arise in a Latino family and neighborhood along with romantic fireworks in this slickly produced, although rather unexceptional, film.
    East_Side_Story.html
  • For the first half of this film, the movie appears to be just another presentation of an oft-repeated gay European cinema theme in which an innocent gay lad develops a crush on an undeserving cad who leads him down a path of debauchery. During the second half of the film, however, the characters take a decidedly interesting turn.
    Fogi_Is_A_Bastard.html
  • This movie is not worth viewing! It’s childish, predictable and condescending.
    Another_Gay_Sequel.html
  • Little Ashes examines the relationships of three remarkable men, particularly the piercing connection between Federico Garcia Lorca and Salvador Dali. The artists inspired and tortured each other with their lust kept just below the surface.
    Little_Ashes.html
  • Kiss The Bride asks some of the same “what if…” questions that many of us ask in our own lives. For example, “What if I honestly confronted and revisited that first love?” That’s a question that countless Hollywood romantic comedies have approached, including several from a gay point of view.
    Kiss_The_Bride.html
  • The thrust of the theme is the discovery of the proper way to be a gay man. Ironically, the teen seems to have much more self-confidence in his own budding queer identity than the nurse who insinuates himself into the boy’s life.
    Very_Serious_Person.html
  • It’s hard to think or David Gleeson’s Cowboys and Angels as anything more than pleasant entertainment–not that there’s anything wrong with that. It requires a healthy dose of suspension of disbelief, although not because the plot–what little there is–is outlandish.
    Cowboys_And_Angels.html
  • Mulligans is characterized by mediocre writing performed with all the believeability that such material deserves. The problem is that it takes itself seriously and seems to believe that it is delivering a profound message about second chances.
    Mulligans.html
  • This film examines the hesitation of confirmed, dedicated heterosexuals to engage in homosexual activities. It manages to accomplish this without raising any meaningful thoughts.
    Humpday.html
  • The Man I Love, a lovely French film, examines the universal urge to pursue the unattainable and unavailable without regard to others who may be impacted. It looks deeply at the fluidity of desire and sexual identity.
    The_Man_I_Love.html
  • Big Eden is a standout among American made, mature gay films. The lead character is portrayed exceptionally well by Ayre Gross, who is determined to lead a lonely and unsatisfying life despite having become a respected and successful painter in New York. However, it is really the small town of Big Eden, Vermont that is the star of this tender film.
    Big_Eden.html
  • While one of the two major characters in this film is gay, thematically it is more about the relationship between two brothers in an apparently dysfunctional family than it is about the title character being gay. Although a poignant resolution occurs, we are left mystified by what it is that has been resolved.
    Perfect_Son.html
  • To have any appreciation for Lino Brocka’s Macho Dancer it helps to have some prior exposure to the rough aestheric of this genre of Phillipine cinema. However, as we get to know the characters and their difficult life in the Manilla sex trade industry, I stopped worrying about the lack of photographic professionalism and found myself drawn into their complex world.
    Macho_Dancer.html
  • Eating Out, Eating Out – Sloppy Seconds and Eating Out – All That You Can Eat make up the trilogy of fluff-filled, gay themed, romantic comedies. These films are pure fluff, although they are professionally done fluff. The acting and directing are above average for the American made adolescent romantic comedy. Alas, the all fall down in the areas of plot and theme.
    Eating_Out.html
  • Rock Haven could offer some small consolation to gay men struggling with self-hatred stimulated by the hurtful teachings of some organized religions. Otherwise, it offers absolutely nothing to the canon of gay cinema.
    Rock_Haven.html
  • Were the World Mine is an interesting little film, but it is, unfortunately, a little film. Based upon a play within a play, it uses Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” as the plot’s pivot point as well as borrowing its theme.
    Were_The_World_Mine.html
  • A gay cop falls in love with a hustler who is falsely suspected of murdering one of his clients. This film addresses that formulaic plot with the finesse of a jackhammer operated by a toddler.

  • Curtis Hanson directs this screen adaptation based upon Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Chabon’s novel of the same name. He has the considerable support of superb actors, although his film was met by mixed reviews.

  • I include a review of this film on this gay, bisexual and bicurious site for two reasons that together I use as justification, even though it is not a gay film by any stretch. First, it is a superb film that has been widely overlooked by the general public. Second, and probably more importantly, it has Jared Leto among its stars.

  • Boy culture takes an exceptionally novel approach to the “hustler genre” mixed with a turn of the female prostitute with a heart of gold films.

  • Based on Ken Hanes off-Broadway play, the gay themed film, Fixing Frank focusses upon just three characters. The conflict in Fixing Frank occurs on two levels.

  • The Mudge Boy has a rather simple plot description, but the superb acting and direction make it powerfully moving.

  • The director of the film, Edward II, takes some liberties with his interpretation of the Christopher Marlowe play. In Jarman’s version, the king’s homosexualtiy becomes the focus of the court’s intrigue, replacing the lack of attention to the needs of the realm that was the focus in the original play.

  • The History Boys is a cinematic interpretation of the critically acclaimed play. It’s definitely worth a look whether you have seen the play or not.

  • The gay-themed film, Defying Gravity, examines the difficulties faced in coming out on a college campus in the context of young romance and homophobia.

  • For American viewers, this lovely film from the Phillipines offers a glimpse of Phillipine culture in a coming of age, first crush film that is far better than a cursory plot synopsis would suggest.

  • Paul’s sexual orientation barely comes into play in the fears of the parents. It shouldn’t, since the majority of molesters are straight. However, many molesters do exhibit some of the same traits exhibited by Paul.

  • Christopher Guest brought together his usual ensemble for this playful, loving jab at small town, middle America and the people who inhabit it. Take any favorable review of Best In Show, tone it down a notch or two, and that is my review of Waiting For Guffman.

  • Meth is an extremely important documentary for any audience, although it concentrates upon the use of the drug in the gay community.

  • Two major points are made in this documentary. First, homosexual Muslims have a difficult time reconciling their sexuality with their deeply held faith. Second, in many Muslim countries, the government places extreme hardship upon practicing homosexuals. These points are made repeatedly in a way that offers no unique insights.
    Jihad_For_Love.html
  • This brilliantly produced documentary is particularly relevant for our times, particularly in light of the contemporary struggle between the certainty of religious fundamentalism and political fanatacism on the one hand and the inherent doubt that is a structural part of scientific inquiry and discovery on the other.

  • In the late 1990s some remarkable teachers at Whitwell Middle School in a very rural area of Tennessee decided to identify a project to fight prejudice. They put a display in the old freight car consisting of six million paper clips representing the Jews and another five million representing the other victims (homosexuals, gypsies and others) who were exterminated. I found it remarkable that this school in rural Tennessee would think to memorialize gays among the victims.

  • One striking feature of the young men in this film compared to other hustler documentaries or dramatic narrative films is that very few of the rent boys seem to have had their self-esteem damaged by what many others seem to consider their degrading work. Even the self-described heterosexuals for the most part do not seem distressed by the way they put food on their tables.
