We conducted a similar poll several years ago, but a lot has happened culturally since then, and a number of worthy movies of gay interest have been released.
We wanted to see how your list of favorites had changed.
This list of the Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies is probably going to generate some howls of protest thanks to a rather major upset in the rankings.
Frankly, one that surprised the hell out of us here.. A few weeks ago we asked readers to submit up to ten of their favorite films by write-in vote.
Brilliant as is, one can’t exactly call it a feel good movie, and the film that bested it in this year’s list was a sweet gay romance with a happy ending.
Could it be that we’ve grown weary of gay tragedies?
Enough with the gay guy dying at the end, maybe today’s LGBT filmgoers crave more upbeat and hopeful fare.
Several factors may have weighed into this outcome.
First, it’s very likely that the ultimate winner (a great little indie film) has passionate fans who made a concerted effort to get out the vote.
