Best Gay themed Films

by MYIDforIMDb | created - 12 Apr 2012 | updated - 24 Jul 2014 | Public

I chose these films just based on personal bias and subjective decisions. These films are so brilliant because these are simply good films.

The selected films are emotionally charged, haunting, poetic, sensual, or cinematically beautiful. Also the actors are really great in these films. Love is love. The marriage equality is inevitable.

Thank you so much for people who were involved in making these films.
