      Longtime Companion was the first to garner an Oscar Nomination- supporting actor nod for Bruce Davison, he lost to Joe Psci- Goodfellas….Bruce was amazing in the death scene…

      Good list! Some seem unfamiliar. Others are extremely memorable. Every time I see Steve Buscemi in “Boardwalk Empire” or “The Sopranos” I remember his FIRST role, gay AIDS patient! And I haven’t seen that movie in years.

      not exactly a big blockbuster film. but I thought this short Indonesian film on YR represents Gay/HIV issues in Asia pretty good.

      Honourable Mention: “Love! Valour! Compasssion!”
      Jason Alexander and John Glover’s portrayals were phenomenal.

      There’s also French film “Les Nuits Fauves” (1992), “Intimate Contact” (1987), “In The Gloaming” (1997), “The Event” (2003) and of course the recent Oscar-nominated documentary “How To Survive A Plague” (2012).

      I was surprised when I found out some friends had never seen these movies. We streamed Longtime Companion and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

      Good list guys.

      A very important film overlooked that was an Oscar nominee is “How to Survive a Plague.” I was privileged to see this and recommend it strongly.

      The most important film of these times, I think, given the fact that the HIV epidemic continues to increase among gay men/men who have sex with men more rapidly than any other key population (with HIV among transgender people quickly surging up as well): WE WERE HERE: Voices From The AIDS Years in San Francisco

      Another great movie that’s worth mentioning, though it is an independent film, is House of Boys
