This is a list of gay films and bisexual related movies. Many of these gay movies are independent releases and foreign films. The films range from gay-themed to films with a major character whose sexuality is a major plot point. It's a little subjective but I tried to be inclusive. This gay movie list can be sorted by cast, director, year, and more. This gay films list can also be copied to create your own "Best of" etc list (there are many excellent gay films beyond just Brokeback Mountain) . If you want to know more about specific LGBT films, just click on the titles for more information. Ranker has a lot of cool gay lists.
