    Totally go to Google. Type in "gay pride" and watch how the results page changes its graphics. :)

    It's gay pride day in the US tomorrow. It's also the anniversary of the Stonewall riots.

    Oh, I see now. I have to admit I had to google the Stonewall riots though.

    In Vancouver, Pride Weekend happens the first weekend in August. (It's a long weekend for B.C. Day.) So I don't see this thread as a one-off Gay Day thread...so I hope it stays around for a while.

    :D :respec: :shizuka1: :psoty: :cheer2: :gallopin1 :40beers: :smokin:

    I hope everyone's having a GAY-tastic pride weekend. Sadly it ends tomorrow at midnight, so do go out and celebrate!!!!

    Us Californians can finally wed! YEAH!!! :wuzrobbed :wuzrobbed

    Funny story, an old lady actually came to picket my house. lol Poor thing I had to call her daughter to come and pick her up.

    Farfaraway, well this is your party too. Isn't June pride month around the world? This weekend is your holiday too! Let's drink to us brother! :40beers:



    Ok that has to be the gayest video ever :lol: and yet it's really HOT

    Tonight I'm having a gay-film marathon night, and I'm going to star with Latter Days ( super corny but oh so gratifying)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koZfdNyJObk

    Anyone knows of a good gay themed movie?

    Besides the usual suspects MILK and BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN?

    Old, kind of out-of-date, but the first one I ever saw>The BOYS IN THE BAND. Also LONGTIME COMPANION and PHILADELPHIA. :wuzrobbed

    PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT, TO WONG FOO, and the French LA CAGE films are always fun. :)
    (but get the FRENCH versions...not THE BIRDCAGE)

    An interesting and moving film about a man transitioning from male to female, and the impact it has on his wife and kids>NORMAL.

    BOYS DON'T CRY is good...sad, but good. :(

    A really good British mini-series about lesbians in Victorian London>TIPPING THE VELVET.

    Yes! BIG EDEN.

    It's the best gay movie I've ever seen. For once it's not about 20 year old twinks with perfect bodies having sex. It's about relationships and intimacy and, even better, it's a romantic comedy with a happy ending. Set in a small town in Montana--sort of a happy version of Brokeback Mountain. Here's a short video with the director, Thomas Bezucha, talking about his inspiration for the film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYi0uvYFWw8

    Definitely worth the watch for all gay people, of every age, race, shape and size. Happy Pride!

    If any of y'all are on Twitter and want to follow a great, loving guy, I recommend openly gay voice-over actor ("In a world where..." movie trailers, etc.)/author/activist Ben Patrick Johnson @benpatrick90069 - he's so positive, inspirational, sweet, and a bodybuilding hunkorama! :)

    P.S. But sorry, boys, he's taken...his bf is another bodybuilder...a Latino hunkorama. ;)

    Check out Ma Vie En Rose. It's a French film about a little boy who wants to be a girl and how his family and communities deal with it.
