    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    Old, kind of out-of-date, but the first one I ever saw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.

    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.

    30 years of Dublin Pride this year. Happy Pride everyone!
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    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.

    Wow, it's stunning how little lesbians have done for the community..............WTF???

    P.S. I am editing this post right now because I put an H where the T should be in "stunning". What an appropriate error!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Yeah, unfortunately, gender bias ain't just a straight thang.

    And if one watches da gayz portrayed on television, one would think the only gays are buff**, white men.

    As far as we've come, there's still a looooooooooooooooooooong way to go.

    **Except for Cam on Modern Family...not so buff.

    First gay couple married in Wash. raises equality flag on Space Needle

    ELAINE M. THOMPSON | Associated Press
    Sunday, June 30, 2013

    SEATTLE — The two women who were the first same-sex couple to be granted a marriage license in Washington State were grand marshals for the annual Seattle Pride Parade on Sunday.

    A group of Boy Scouts carrying American flags were the first marchers in the parade, attracting cheers and sustained applause. One of the adults marching with about a dozen scouts, David O. McGrath of Ammon, Idaho, said they decided to participate after being told by their scouting council they were not allowed to march.

The two, who are the first same sex couple to be granted a wedding license in Washington State, were marshals in the annual Seattle Pride Parade later Sunday.

    About 200 groups, ranging from “Dykes on Bikes” to a Seattle Police Department car with “just married” painted on the rear window, participated in the parade, with thousands lining the parade route on a warm, sunny Seattle day.

    Bryan Fabert drums as he marches in the annual Gay Pride parade Sunday, June 30, 2013, in Seattle.

    Seattle Police Officer Bob Peth was driving and his husband, Aaron Fletcher, was in the passenger seat. They were married Dec. 9, the first day of legal gay weddings in Washington State.

    There were many references to gay marriage, including several couples in tuxes or wedding gowns, along with a woman who was parading inside a giant, hoop-style wedding gown float, which was at least 15-feet high. Shaun Knittle and Yee-Shin Huang, wearing “Just Married” T-shirts, kissed as they walked down the middle of the street.

    West Seattle couple Jane Abbot Lighty and Pete-e Petersen helped lead the parade and also stood on the Space Needle on Sunday morning to raise a giant marriage equality flag above the Seattle icon.

    The flag featuring a red equal sign made its first appearance atop the Space Needle.

    Lighty and Petersen threw kisses to the crowd from the red convertible they rode in.

    Veterans for Peace carried signs saying “Free Bradley Manning.” Librarians performed a synchronized routine with book carts.

    Employee organizations from a variety of corporations participated, including Starbucks, Google, Alaska Airlines, Microsoft, Group Health, Fred Meyer, Macy’s, Verizon and Delta Airlines

    Across town, the Seattle Mariners flew the rainbow flag during their game Sunday against the Chicago Cubs.

    A group called Seattle Out & Proud says the Mariners will be the first Major League Baseball team to publicly fly the gay pride flag. But Mariners spokeswoman Rebecca Hale says she cannot confirm that Seattle is first.

    All of them and my computer is not filtered. I don't use Google Chrome.
