Recently, Redditors reeled off the first LGBT movies they watched, but now, a user is asking the hive mind for recommendations of gay movies he could watch on a date. In fact, he says he has a guy coming over to his place, so “a few steamy scenes wouldn’t hurt.”

And the nominees include…
“God’s Own Country. It’s romantic, not a tragedy, and super sexy … omg those butts.”
“The Way He Looks is super sweet.”
“Call Me By Your Name.”
“Fourth Man Out, if he’s masc. They love that shit. Otherwise, Boy Culture.”
“North Sea Texas. … Subtitled but it’s good. If you can get your hands on it, watch that shit.”
“Shortbus. Deep and funny.”
“I’m so sad that nobody mentioned Jongens [Boys] here. Best Dutch gay movie ever.”

“How about Trick? 20-year-old movie but still awesome.”
“If you want something lighthearted and steamy, try The 10 Year Plan. It’s ridiculous. I loved it.”
All great movies, I’ve seen all… yet, most of them are starred by straight men. Shocking!
All great movies, I’ve seen all… yet, most….- I have nothing to add But i am here not only to discuss this article but I would like to share with you new but really amazing website for gay singles only. It is still private, but you can find it easy. Just google: “9kbXwXLtCk7Xfugu6lu1737196” .
Logo was supposed to be “the gay channel” for cable subscribers. But try to find one of these movies playing on that station. Good luck. More likely you’ll find a re-run of “Golden Girls” or “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”.
While many of the selections would be fun to watch with a date (with romance in mine)
I fail to see how Call Me By Your Name would qualify since the movie ends with his summer lover leaving to go marry a woman, not exactly the kind of upbeat romantic film to get you and your partner in the mood.
Nor is Shortbus…just way to much graphic heterosexual sex and angst ( I agree it’s a great film nonetheless, not exactly date worthy.)
Ones I would add for a date night, would be:
All over the guy
I think I do
North Sea Texas and The Way He Looks would be awesome date movies IMO.
You could add a couple of oldies. Big Eden and Latter Days.
Fair Haven and Closet Monster are newer and worthy.
A lot of gay guys like (500) Days of Summer staring Joseph-Gordon Levitt, who was also in Latter Days, though it is entirely about a straight dude. The movie is damn good.
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
Latter Days, EXCELLENT choice!!!
The scene where Christian drops the plate upon seeing Aaron after thinking he was dead always makes my eyes think someone is cutting a bushel of onions :-p
If you want to see a Gay love story with a truly happy ending, check that flick out…
Big Eden is a charming movie, who’s leads aren’t traditionally handsome. Very sweet. I was trying to think of the title “Latter Days”–also charming and a testament of how ‘love’ can change the selfishness of someone.
Since it was on Netflix, I have seen 10 year plan a million times. I LOVE THAT FILM!
I’d recommend Handsome Devil and (maybe?) My Brother, the Devil
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
Sooooo glad that piece of cinematic trash Brokeback Mountain wasn’t included….
I really loved “4TH man out” as it’s a funny, happy movie with a positive ending.
Shortbus was probably one of the biggest pieces of shit I’ve ever seen. I almost went blind from my eye rolling.
And yeah, call me by your name isn’t a fun romantic movie
All films with white gay men. Are they the only ones who date?
There are alot of gay movies TLA has a ton each month ..many at 9,99. .I would buy more yet most of the movie descriptions don’t state if they are subtitled or dubbed..I don’t want to take a chance and be disappointed its subtitled. If I wanted to read I’d buy the book
Another Gay Movie and Sordid Lives. Its important to know if the person you end up with has a compatible sense of humor.
