"The art is ugly creepy kitsch... that is, slightly above dogs playing pool and black-velvet Elvis. I have a hard time grasping why we should care who created it..." - Owen

Okay. I'll start.

My favorite gay movie is either Brokeback Mountain or Heavenly Creatures (depending on my mood) unless you count Cabaret as "gay" because they struck me right to the core and were so expertly crafted and passionately acted. But the one I've seen the most is probably Victor/Victoria.

Oops that was more than one sentence.

Favorite movie is Brokeback Mountain because of the brilliance of
Ledger's performance but the gay movie I've seen most is Boogie
Nights...

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMark

My favorite LGBT movie is Neil Jordan's "The Crying Game" because it's a fucking masterpiece, but the one I've seen the most is Pedro Almodovar's "All About My Mother" (but Blake Edwards' "Victor / Victoria" is another film I can never get tired of).

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterStefano

My favorite LGBT movie is Paris is Burning because all of New York City is wrapped up in being Labeija, but the one I've seen the most is The Hours.

Happy Pride, everyone!

Favorite is Bad Education because I love noirs & Garcia Bernal is outstanding, unless The Perks of Being a Wallflower counts (because it's a beautifully acted story of compelling characters).

Seen the most? Probably Perks, A Single Man, or Love Songs.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterScottC

My favorite LGBT movie is Love Songs because it's joyful and casual without avoiding the suffering that the loss of any love can bring, but the one I've seen the most is My Best Friend's Wedding, that's not actually a gay movie but I count as it because of Rupert Everett being perfect in it.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commentercal roth

Happy Pride to Gary Oldman, Shia Lebouf, Alec Baldwin, Mel Gibson and other great minds!

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commenteriggy

My favorite LGBT movie is Angels in America because Tony Kushner is a genius. The one I've seen the most is either Angels in America or Paris is Burning.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterHannes

My favorite LGBT movie is Weekend because it feels so real, it captures so much of the now, and speaks to me a lot but the one I've seen the most is probably Love Songs, can't get over that soundtrack, and it also has a very special way of dealing with so many issues. Also, The Way He Looks (Hoje eu quero voltar sozinho) a recent brazilian film is a beautiful film about young love and discovering who you are, so gentle and delicate and precious.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterVinicius

My favourite LGBT movie is Our Lady of the Assassins because it's so romantic, exciting and inventive but the one I've seen the most is Cabaret because you've always just got to leave it running until the next glorious Bob Fosse musical number!

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterEdward L.

My favorite gay movie is "Far from Heaven" because of Julianne, Patricia, Dennis (x2), those costumes...need I say more? But the one I've seen more often is "Longtime Companion" because I think we should never forget...

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterstjeans

My favorite LGBT movie is Brokeback Mtn because it was the first film that made me understand what other people saw in hetero romance/tragedies, but the one I've seen the most is Grease (pretty sure it counts).

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTravis

My favorite LGBT movie is Latter Days because it's so sweet and romantic plus I was at the world premiere and got to see Jacqueline Bisset in person! so it holds a special place in my heart but the ones I've seen the most are probably The Trip and Torch Song Trilogy.

I hate not to mention It's My Party, Trick, Beautiful Thing, A Single Man, Longtime Companion, Far From Heaven, Maurice, The Times of Harvey Milk, Undertow, And the Band Played On, An Early Frost and Shelter because I love them all and still watch them fairly often.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterjoel6

My favourite LGBT movie is Weekend because it spoke to me like no other movie has and made me look at my life and change it. Its also the movie I've seen the most because it just is endlessly watchable on every level.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermorganlambert

My favorite is "Making Love" because it was the first time I no longer felt marginalized by film, but there are so many others.......Victor/Victoria because of that script, BrokeBack because it was brilliant, just brilliant and so true, anything by Almodóvar, especially Women on the Verge, Far from Heaven (Todd Haynes is a God.).... The one I've seen the most (I'll be honest) comes from one of those little studios in the Valley which employ many, many brilliant tech people, some Oscar nominated and star "actors" who have been through the studio car wash several times in order not to scare the viewers.

That and Some Like it Hot. After all, "Nobody's perfect."

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterHenry

My favorite LGBT movie is But I'm a Cheerleader because it's very funny without feeling too fake but the one I've seen the most is Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Yitzhak, people. How could you not?

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterRobert G

There was an educational program called In The Life. That was my source of information and pride before the campaign of It Gets Better.

The Crying Game is the greatest gay movie ever made. Because it functions outside of its queer politics. It includes sexual tension between black and white men and the underrated sexiness of Ralph Brown.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commenter3rtful

My favorite LGBT movie is Brokeback Mountain because of Heath Ledger's superb performance but the one I've seen the most is "Victim," because each time I see it I see a sympathetic portrayal of a gay man acted by a gay man in 1961. .

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPatryk

My favorite LGBT movie is Angels in America because it's such an enormous achievement that makes me think about religion, illness, identity, politics, and the value of human life but the one I've seen the most is Boogie Nights because I can watch that at any time (I kind of want to watch it now, actually).

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne

My favorite LGBT movie (apart from Brokeback Mountain) is Weekend because of its subdued intimacy and affecting performances, but the LGBT movie I've seen the most is Shelter, because I like happy endings and that not everything has to end up terrible.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterF

My favorite LGBT movie is Weekend, because it somehow transcended being a "gay film" while still very much remaining one (please tell me that makes sense), but the one I've seen most is D.E.B.S. I can't help it - that movie just cracks me up!

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterdenny

My favorite lgbt movie is probably actually "A Home at the End of the World", which is far from perfect and not a popular choice, but I stumbled across it at a formative age when I was willing to go along with the earnestness and the use of Yaz and Laura Nyro on the soundtrack. But the one I've seen the most is "Rocky Horror", of course.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDave

My favorite LGBT movie is My Own Private Idaho because it's a honest yet unorthodox portrayal of love but the one I've seen the most is Brokeback Mountain.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSteven

I love so many. Cabaret, Mysterious Skin, Weekend, Pariah... probably more I'm forgetting.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPhilip H.

Oh, and Blue is the Warmest Color!!

I'm not sure what I've seen the most though... probably Cabaret or Brokeback Mountain.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPhilip H.

Angels in America because it's profound on so many levels and the acting is first rate. It's such an achievement in film-making.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbrandz

My favorite LGBT movie is Pariah bc it's rare to see Black women in these types of movies, and it's a great film. The one I've seen the most is Heavenly Creatures bc It's a film I grew up with.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterNikki

My favorite LGBT movie (I'm not counting Oscary films) is Trick because Christian Campbell's character is just so sweet but the movie I've seen the most is Mean Girls (let's be honest- it counts!).

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterEvan

my favorite LGBT movie is brokeback mountain because emotions! but the one i've seen the most is bareback mountin'

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterpar

My favorite LGBT movie is Happy Together because it's the one film I've seen that's about LGBT characters without being about LGBT issues. I agree it's important to address LGBT issues in the movies, but I can't help but find Happy Together refreshing and unique for it's nonchalant attitude about its characters's sexual orientations. It's also Wong Kar-Wai's finest film, in my opinion, the best employment of his stylistic indulgences to his most emotionally direct, hard-hitting story. Tony Leung and Leslie Cheung are heartbreaking as the main couple...but the one I've seen the most is Election (Tammy Metzler! does that count?)

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJoseph

My favorite LGBT movie is "Mulholland Dr." because it is, but the one I've seen the most is "All About My Mother" because it's so rewatchable for so many different reasons.

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBVR

My favorite LGBT movie is Dog Day Afternoon because of Lumet, Pacino, Sarandon et al., but the one I've seen the most is Cabaret (or maybe All the Rage because reasons).

June 29, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPaul Outlaw

It feels odd to say that I binge-watched a "gay fantasia on national themes" but binge-watch Angels in America I did. It was just so perfect. Pitch-perfect.

The one I watch the most is definitely The Hours, though. It also feels odd to say that for me it's now kind of like drinking a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day in that it makes me feel stirred and wistful and slightly hypnotized, and unexplainably recalls childhood memories to the fore, but sometimes I'll feel the irresistible need to revisit it every now and then. Which is funny because I don't believe I liked it that much when I first watched it.

June 30, 2014 | Unregistered Commentercaroline

My favorite LGBT movie is Happy Together because of the masterful out-of-this-world direction of Wong Kar Wai but the one I've seen the most is Priscilla Queen of the Dessert and To Wiong Foo!

June 30, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterjo69e

My favorite LGTB movie is "The Wedding Banquet" because the multiple subtext and layers but the one I've seen the most is "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" because it's so rewatchable and fun (and deep)

June 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJesus Alonso

My favorite LGTB movie is an australian lesbian comedy called "Better than Chocolate" because it has great humor overall, but the one I've seen the most was... I'm not sure actually. *lol*
I think The Hours.... yeah, probably.
I'm in the minority that loves all three parts EQUALLY.

June 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSonja

My favorite gay movie is Blue Is The Warmest Color because when I watch it I feel it down to my bones. But the one I've seen most is probably Bad Education.

June 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTB

My favourite is definitely Brokeback Mountain. It's just so perfect and so heartbreaking. I don't have any that I've seen the most. Does Queer as Folk count?

June 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMarcie

My favorite LGBT movie is Brokeback Mountain because every actor is at the top of their game, it breaks my heart every time, and of all the gorgeous Ang Lee films where love dare not speak its name, this is his crown jewel.

But the one I've seen most is Clue, which I had memorized line by line by the sixth grade, and which will always find a place somewhere in my lost of top movies.

June 30, 2014 | Unregistered Commentereurocheese

My favorite is Kissing Jessica Stein because IT'S PERFECT but the one I've seen most is RHPS because I am the tragic victim of a cult.

June 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDeborah Lipp

A bit late to this party!

My favorite GLBT movie is "Trick" because it was the first I had seen and allowed me to think that my twenties would be full of crowded clubs and shirtlessness. It kind of is, but not really, although Coco Peru favorites my Tweets EVERY time I write to her. The one I have seen the most is The Broken Hearts Club.
