‘We need, in every community, a group of angelic troublemakers’—–Bayard Rustin.
YES, you heard us right.
LGBTQ people are direct messengers of God because they teach us what love truly means. They can love across gender, caste, creed, race, social status, etc.
It is because of that so many gay movies have resurfaced in the past few decades and have blown our minds, and before we forget you can download those movies from The PirateBay, and see what we are talking about!
So, without further ado, let’s start enlisting the top 7 gay movies ever made.
1: Brokeback Mountain
‘I Wish I Knew How To Quit You.’
We will consider Brokeback Mountain as one of the best LGBT movies of the era because it was the first gay movie that resurfaced in the mainstream cinema industry.
Ernie and Jack were two shepherds who neither share a flamboyant personality nor are associated with homosexuality. But, when they get married to their respective girlfriends, the dynamic changes.
The two men continue to keep their sporadic affair alive for 20 years, and you can’t help but feel empathetic for these star-crossed lovers!
2: Call Me By Your Name
‘Call Me By Your Name And I Will Call You By Mine.’
This quote is unforgettable if you have ever watched this movie. The bold and revolutionary statements made by Oliver touched our hearts from the moment they were uttered.
Oliver and Elio did not know their sexuality until they met each other over the summer and enjoyed it all.
Although they part their ways by the end of the movie, it does not snatch the ‘happy ending’ vibe. Instead, it gives you the sense of calmness and serenity that has been rooted in the overall essence of the movie.
3: Blue Is The Warmest Colour
‘I’m Happy. I’m Happy With You, Like This. It’s My Way Of Being Happy.’
Even if you have not seen this movie, we bet you have heard its name because it has been popularized by its fanbase for quite some years now.
The love story between Adele and Emma is soul-crushing because, in the end, they don’t end up with one another.
But, the passion that burns through their loins in the lovemaking scenes is so warm that you can actually feel yourself touching in the right places as you watch those.
4: Portrait Of A Lady On Fire
‘In The Solitude, I Felt The Liberty You Speak Of. But I Also Felt Your Absence.’
This film has joined the queer canon recently and we can’t help but sing its praises because of how beautiful the narrative is.
Sure, it talks about two women who dared to love each other in an era when it was forbidden by the societal norms, but the brilliance showcased in every step of the film’s execution is commendable.
The way Marianne seeks chances to paint Héloïse without her knowing is beautiful to look at, and we want a LOVE like that in our lives.
‘Are you gay? You know a faggot? A, a punk, a fruit, a queen, a fairy, a booby snatcher, rump roaster, pillow biter, are you gay?’
Tom Hanks won an Oscar for his brilliant performance in this movie, and we know why.
Apart from being a gay movie that shows the power of love, Philadelphia also sends the message of righteousness.
