“…it’s okay you didn’t like Broken Hearts Club or Kiss Me Guido. Let me tell you a little secret that we try to keep within the community, gay movies suck, but until the law is changed we’re still obligated to go see ’em” – Will & Grace

I tend to disagree with W&G on that one but it’s gives me a chuckle.

I just discovered the fun classic film blog Garbo Laughs and their Queer Film Blogathon recently. It’s a great idea and open to all film bloggers. According to the site “The Queer Film Blogathon will be held on June 27, 2011. The focus is on lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or otherwise non-heterosexual, non-gender-binary depictions or personages in film.” So even if you found it late, like me, you should go contribute. This is to celebrate that June is Gay Pride Month. P.S. Congrats New Yorkers! Same-sex marriage was legalized Friday in the state of New York.

I am always realizing that there are genres that I need to add to the Netflix Instant Streaming category.

Click the film titles to be taken directly to the film on Netflix.

RuPaul’s Drag Race (2010) (Seasons 2-3) (Available Until May 22, 2013)

This is one of RuPaul’s reality shows that airs on the Logo network. They have various competitions to determine who the best drag queen is. I actually haven’t gotten around to watching it yet because I always realize it’s on when the season is already halfway through. Luckily I can watch the whole second season all the way through now. I have watched Drag U though which features drag queens who give women makeovers to improve their self esteem and win, of course. I really want a drag queen fairy godmother. It would so fun. In the meantime you can use the Dragulator, I did.

I Love You Phillip Morris (2009) (Available Until February 03, 2013)

Yes, I have previously mentioned my love for this film. Jim Carrey stars as the highly intelligent Steven Russell in the dark comedy I Love You Phillip Morris. He is a middle aged man who comes out and then becomes a con man to support his extravagant lifestyle. Ewan McGregor costars as the love of his life, Phillip Morris. Leslie Mann costars. The film was adapted from the book, I Love You Phillip Morris: A True Story of Life, Love, and Prison Breaks by Steve McVicker, which is based on the real life of Steven Jay Russell.

Dorian Gray (2009) (Available Until February 16, 2012)

Dorian Gray was a pretty good adaptation of my all time favorite book, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. They stick to the story, the dialogue (!) and there is plenty of debauchery. My main peeve is that the lead, Ben Barnes is a little odd looking. Dorian Gray is the story of a young, handsome man who finds out that the painting that was painted of him is what will age and show his sins while he stays eternally young looking. You can imagine how much bad stuff one can get into in that situation. There is a gay kissing scene, which is why I included it. Colin Firth (yum) and Ben Chaplin co-star.

Puccini for Beginners (2006) (Available Until March 20, 2022)

This is a romantic comedy starring Gretchen Mol (The Notorious Bettie Page), Elizabeth Reaser (Grey’s Anatomy), Justin Kirk and Julianne Nicholson. It’s about a lesbian who starts wondering if she’s really gay after a breakup. It’s a good little movie with a great cast.

Brokeback Mountain (2005) (Available Until December 16, 2014)

When two seasonal sheepherders unexpectedly fall in love they have to deal with their own feelings, their wives and life in general is this stormy drama. The leads are played by the fantastic late Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal. Their wives are played by Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway. Randy Quaid, Linda Cardellini and Anna Faris costar. The film was directed by the super talented Ang Lee (The Ice Storm). If you haven’t seen this yet then you must, as soon as possible.

The L Word seasons 2-5 (doesn’t include 1 or 6) (2004) (Not Currently Available)

The L Word was the lesbian answer to Queer As Folk. It’s definitely more downbeat but still a great show. I simply chose a picture of Katherine Moennig as Shane because she’s my favorite character.

Tying the Knot (2004) (Available Until October 11, 2013)

This is a documentary about same-sex marriage laws in the US. It is from 2004 so I’m sure that much of the info is out of date but it looks interesting. If you want to get riled up you may also want to check out another documentary, 8: The Mormon Proposition, which is about the LDS trying to prevent the gay marriage bill in California. Reviews by Mormons say it’s biased, but of course it would be. That’s the point, to show how ridiculous their views on this are.

Nip/Tuck Seasons 1-6 (full series) (2003-2009) (Available Until July 1, 2014)

Man, I love Nip/Tuck and it’s over the top lifestyle and problems (many caused by their own egos) of 2 handsome plastic surgeons. Over the course of the show creator Ryan Murphy (Glee) featured many LGBT plots including transgender arcs. There was also a bit of a tease plot line about Christian (Julian McMahon) worrying that he might be gay (he’s a real horn dog for the ladies).

Wet Hot American Summer (2001) (Available Until October 1, 2013)


(gif source: fuckyeahguyskissing)

Wet Hot American Summer has to be included for the young, giddy makeout scene between Bradley Cooper and Michael Ian Black whilst a bit of a way away their friends are talking about how to get them chicks. From the mind of David Wain this is a hilarious satire of camp counselor movies. The cast also includes David Hyde Pierce, Janeane Garafalo, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Michael Showalter, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Marguerite Moreau and Ken Marino.

Boys Don’t Cry (1999) (Available Until August 1, 2012)


Boys Don’t Cry is based on the true story of Brandon Teena (Hilary Swank) who was a trans man (a person who is born female but gender identifies as a man) who falls in love with the pretty Lana (Chloe Sevigny) and the hate crime that follows. Peter Sarsgaard and Brendan Sexton costar. Netflix also has The Brandon Teena Story, which is the documentary about the real Brandon Teena.

Edge of Seventeen (1998) (Available Until September 1, 2012)


Plot: “A gay teen finds out who he is and what he wants, who his friends are, and who loves him, in this autobiographical tale set in middle America in the 1980s. Growing up, learning about life, love, sex, friends, and lovers.” (from IMDB.com). I was a big fan of this adorable movie as a teen. It stars Chris Stafford, Tina Holmes, Andersen Gabrych and Lea DeLaria.

Billy’s Hollywood Screen Kiss (1998) (Not Currently Available)

This comedy is uneven but it starred Brad Rowe (who Bop promised me would become a star, what happened?) at the height of his hotness. It’s no wonder that the movie is about Sean Hayes’s photographer character trying to turn him gay so he can romance him.

Kiss Me Guido (1997) (Available Until April 1, 2012)

Kiss Me Guido is definitely one of my favorites. Back before Jersey Shore (ew) not everyone was into the macho Italian American guy from NYC. Nicki Scotti (Detroit Rock City) plays this guy who really wants to be an actor but is working in a pizza shop. He’s a few slices short of a loaf so when he sees GWM in an apartment ad he thinks that it means “Guy With Money” instead of “Gay White Male”. When he meets his new effeminate, gay roomie (in the theater scene, score) laughs and friendship ensue. My sister and I still use that abbreviation incorrectly today for giggles. The movie costars Anthony Barille, Anthony DeSando, Craig Chester and Jennifer Esposito.

Chasing Amy (1997) (Available Until April 1, 2012)

Chasing Amy is a great comedy that proposes the question “Isn’t Ben Affleck so hot that a lesbian would fall for him?”. Just kidding, she falls for him as a person. The problem is that he can’t get her exes out of his head (which could happen in any relationship). Because it’s a Kevin Smith film (from his View Askew oeuvre) it has his trademark filthy humor but is also touching. Plus they are all comic writers (or tracers) so it’s like a good geek fantasy. The film stars Joey Lauren Adams, Jason Lee (Banksy!) and Jason Mewes. Characters from this film make a cameo in his later film, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

In & Out (1997) (Not Currently Available)

Yes, I did already mention In & Out in one of these and while I don’t usually do repeats I had to do so with this film. You have to love Kevin Kline as teacher who struggles with coming out late in life but in a quite silly manner. Tom Selleck plays his love interest. The film costars Joan Cusack, Matt Dillon, Debbie Reynolds, Wilford Brimley, Bob Newhart, Shalom Harlow, Shawn Hatosy, Lauren Ambrose, Selma Blair and Glenn Close. It was directed by Frank Oz.

The Birdcage (1996) (Available Until January 1, 2012)


The Birdcage is a lot of fun. It’s one of those movies that any time that you come across it on TV you have to watch it, yet again. It’s a remake of the 1978 French-Italian film La Cage aux Folles. The adorable Dan Futterman is about to marry a pre-Ally McBeal Calista Flockhart. The problem is that his fathers (Robin Williams and Nathan Lane) are both gay and the owners of a drag club while Flockhart’s father (Gene Hackman) is a Republican Senator. So Williams fakes a different profession, Lane dresses as and pretends to be Futterman’s mother and they pretend not to be Jewish. Of course tons of hilarious scenes ensue. Diane Wiest, Hank Azaria and Chrstine Branski costar in this Mike Nichols film.

Jeffrey (1995) (Not Currently Available)

Jeffrey handled the fear of Aids with humor, not easy to do. Wings era Steven Weber stars as Jeffrey who is worrying but falling for a guy while trying to be celibate due to his fear. Definitely a flick that I’ve watched quite a few times. The film costars Patrick Stewart, Nathan Lane, Michael T. Weiss and Sigourney Weaver. Weber even tweeted about the movie Friday night in reference to NYC’s gay marriage approval.

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994) (Available Until January 1, 2012)



Yeah, you probably already know how awesome this movie is but we still have to address it now. I loved this movie so much that I used to covet this bus when I was young and imagine traveling cross country having adventures in it. It’s about a group of drag queens who travel across Australia to perform in fantastic outfits and deal with prejudice on their awesome bus, Priscilla. Terence Stamp, Guy Pearce and Hugo Weaving costar. If you’re already a big fan then you may want to pick up the Blu-ray which, according to the screencaps, here, looks amazing.

Heavenly Creatures (1994) (Available Until January 1, 2012)

This drama is about the tumultuous friendship of two young ladies played by Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey that leads to horrifying revenge. I recommend checking out the Film Experience’s Best Shot thoughts on it as well as Melanie Lynskey’s on the same site.

My So Called Life The Complete Series (1994) (Available Until March 1, 2013)


Though most of us first recall ah, Jordan Catalano (i.e. Jared Leto, front man of a pretty so so band) in all of this teen angst about high school we not only got to see Angela (Claire Danes) break out of her shell with the help of her drunk bestie Rayanne (A.J. Langer) but also their other bestie Rickie Vasquez (Wilson Cruz) who was actually out, in high school, in 1994, that takes balls. It’s a fantastic show that despite it’s super quick cancellation is discovered by new crops of teens every year, who still identify with it. It can also bring back the nostalgia for those of us who are a bit older but were here for the 90s.

Another Country (1984) (Available Until July 7, 2012)

I watched this flick a few months ago during one of my revisiting Cary Elwes phases. It’s a story about a young gay student (Rupert Everett) attending a boarding school in 1930s England. It’s very slow moving but worth checking out to see all of these hot guys in their super young days, including Colin Firth!

Longtime Companion (1989) (Available Until May 1, 2013)

Plot: “Perhaps the first film to put a human face on the AIDS epidemic, Longtime Companion follows the lives of a small circle of friends from the first mention of the disease in the New York Times in 1981. First referred to as “Gay-Related-Immune-Disorder,” we watch the effect of the disease as it devastates the lives of our protagonists. Jumping between Manhattan and Fire Island, vignettes carry us from the it-couldn’t-happen-to-me mentality of the early days of the disease to the invasive effect it has had on all of our lives, today. The title of the film comes from the New York Times’ refusal to acknowledge homosexual relationships in their obituary section during this period. Instead, survivors were referred to as “Longtime Companions” of the deceased.” (from IMDB.com). This drama stars the talented cast of Campbell Scott, Stephen Caffreey, Patrick Caddiy, Brian Cousins, John Dossett, Mary-Louise Parker and Dermot Mulroney.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) (Not Currently Available)



The Rocky Horror Picture Show was not only the first movie that introduced me to a sweet transvestite but also overpowering horniness in general as a child. It was one of my dad’s favorites. It’s an awesome musical about sci-fi, rock and roll and horny oddballs that a square couple meet on their honeymoon. Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon are fantastic. The whole cast is pretty amazing though (I still need to be Magenta for Halloween one day!). The whole cast is pretty amazing though (I still need to be Magenta for Halloween one day!). The film co-stars Barry Bostwick, Richard O’Brien and Meat Loaf. The movie has a huge following and tons of live shows as well as audience participation shows (that are sometimes aired on TV for Halloween) are often going on. A really neat looking Blu-ray book set was released for the film’s 35th anniversary in 2010.

Mango on SNL


“You cannot have the Mango!”

Chris Kattan played the adorable male stripper who could hypnotize any man into falling for him on Saturday Night Live during the late ’90s. Kattan was a cast member from seasons 16 through 23. There isn’t a definitive list out of each episode that featured Mango but you can watch Saturday Night Live The 1990s and Saturday Night Live The 2000s to find out. My sister even got me a Mango birthday cake back in the day, super neat.

Unfortunately Kattan used to get ragged on all of the time by his cast members for this character so in later episodes his unknown (but we were assuming at least bi) sexuality is revealed to be straight and he’s married, boo. SNL has also featured The Ambiguously Gay Duo cartoon mainly through those years but also once last season as well (with Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon as the live action versions). You can read a little more on gay sketches on SNL here.

NOTE: This post is originally from 2010. I thought that The Hangover Part 2 was super funny. The title of the movie The Dark Fields was changed to Limitless, which I loved. Cooper has since broken up with Zellweger.

Bradley Cooper Collage

Ripping off his clothes “to save a life” on Nip/Tuck
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83gPBfUGVwc
Bradley Cooper first came to my attention in 2005. I had never watched the show Alias because I thought it looked boring. Prior to the 4th season premiere though they were heavily advertising it. I didn’t have anything else to watch so I caught the season premiere. Of course I was hooked. I, as usual, was broke and had to get the DVDs used cheaply on eBay. Back then the sets retailed for over $40. I actually bought season 3 before 1 and 2 because it was the only one I could get really cheap at the time. Confusing but I still got into it. A month or so later I picked up the other 2. Going through the series I thought this Will guy was so cute.

In 2005 I caught Bradley Cooper’s appearances in Wedding Crashers and was all upset like “How could they make him a jerk?”. Later when I became a guide the only questions I ever had about him were “Who’s the asshole in Wedding Crashers?” and I’d sigh.

Then he got the lead in the Fox series Kitchen Confidential. I thought, awesome, he’s gonna be a star. No, the show was canceled hella quick. In the series he was playing a fictionalized version of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.

In 2007 he had a memorable role as actor Aiden Stone in Season 5 on one of my favorite shows, Nip/Tuck. Of course, he killed it.

In 2008 he was the lead in the awesome horror flick Midnight Meat Train but it was rushed in and out of theaters. You should definitely check it out though.

Then last year I was visiting family in Maryland and we went to see Fast & Furious. In front of it they had the trailer for The Hangover. I thought this was really cool because I had my first trip to Vegas planned for the next month. The movie looked hilarious. It turns out that what it took for him to become a star was a big budget comedy. Ever since then I now get “Who’s the sexy guy from The Hangover?” when working. I much prefer that description. Later that year he co-starred with Sandra Bullock in the awful looking romantic comedy All About Steve.

Most of his other roles were minor or I’ve tried to scrub the movie from my brain. (Case in point: He’s Just Not That Into You, ack!).

Later I realized that he was one of the guys making out (yum) in the hilarious Wet Hot American Summer. He also played a hot jerk on an episode of Sex and the City.

Today his big budget action film The A-Team opens. Frankly I know nothing about the show except from stuff they’ve shown on Family Guy. He looks down right sexy in it though and I like those types of movies so I’ll be seeing it soon.

They are also in pre-production on The Hangover 2. I hope it’s as funny as the 1st. In 2011 he will also appear in a thriller called The Dark Fields which sounds pretty neat.

FUN FACTS:

He’s 6’1 but wanted to be taller.
“I had size 12 feet when I was 10, so I thought I was going to be 6′ 8″. My goal was to be able to dunk a basket. I wound up being 6′ 1″ with size 14 feet. I got the raw end of the deal.”-Bradley Cooper (from IMDB.com)

Cooper has an adorable dog named Charlotte who is a Chow-retriever mix.

He’s currently dating Renee Zellweger. I think they make a cute couple.
