    I'm not too versed in this genre (haven't seen any in past decade really...)

    Though I'd say:

    1) A Beautiful Thing

    2) To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything Julie Newmar

    3) The Broken Hearts Club

    I watch Shelter often enough that I worry that I'm becoming obsessive.

    I've never really gotten the gay community's collective obsession with Shelter. The ending was completely unrealistic and over-idealized.

    I don't understand the obsession, either. I saw based on so many people saying so many good things about it. Kind of the same with Brokeback Mountain, which I do think is a good movie but certainly not among the very best.

    Brokeback Mountain

    Edge of Seventeen - it reminds me of my own teen years.

    Trick - silly, campy, touching...just GAY.

    I thought 98% of Shelter was cute. But the ending jesus...can anyone really concede a shred of realism to a gay teen, losing his virginity to his first summer fling, and then entering into basically a marriage WITH A CHILD with this man JUST as he is about to start college and go into probably the most sexually open and experimenting environment he's ever been exposed to?

    I mean can you seriously envision this like 18 year old in college all "Hello, I had my very first gay sexual experience with a man like a month ago and now we're married and raising a child, no thank you to you, other college guys, I have no interest in dating or having sex with anyone else in my life because I'm now married at 18 to the guy I lost my virginity to a month ago an now we're raising a child, so goodbye!"

    Oh yeah. Edge of Seventeen was great.

    Here's one for the gals (Gina Gershon and Meg Tilly have never been better) but I'm a guy and liked it too! icon_wink.gif

    And I don't know if it exactly qualifies as gay but LOGO plays it all the time, Gina Gershon is in it (so it gets automatic gay points) and it is so bad it is good!

    Reading this, I think I might understand the obsession so many have with this movie. How many threads have we seen here by 20 or 21 yo guys or those just out of the closet crying because they haven't found a man to settle down with? Finding the "one" usually come about without a lot of trial and error and heartache and pain along the way.

    I've thought about that too, sort of like that's the ideal white horse fairy tale ending every confused lonely gay boy hopes for. But I just see it as perpetuating an absurdly unrealistic and damaging quick fix ideal when the reality of how life works is so drastically different. And not even in the "oh wow they made adverse situations work!" way, just in the uh, this makes no shred of sense of how life and relationships actually work.
