The gay Super Bowl, which some refer to as the Academy Awards, is still months away, but if you can’t wait that long to throw your support behind the year’s best film, here’s good news. Queerty readers can tell us which was the film most likely to become a future queer classic. There were so many deserving projects to choose from this year, but we managed to narrow it down to six. Watch the trailers for each and then click over to the 2014 Queerties ballot page to cast your vote.
The Imitation Game: A look at events in the life of Alan Turing opens next month but is already being heralded as one of the year’s best films, due primarily to Benedict Cumberbatch’s portrayal of the late persecuted gay hero.
Lilting: Exquisite cinematography and a delicate performance by out actor Ben Whishaw helped make this gentle drama about a mother coming to terms with her dead son’s lover one of the year’s most rewarding films.
Love Is Strange: The latest from acclaimed director Ira Sachs starred master thespians John Lithgow and Alfred Molina as a couple whose long relationship is challenged after they finally tie the knot.
The Normal Heart: Larry Kramer‘s powerful stage drama about the early years of the AIDS epidemic in New York City finally made it to film, thanks to Ryan Murphy and a stellar cast, led by Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer.
Pride: This crowd-pleaser, currently in theaters, depicts the true story of a ragtag group of young gay and lesbian activists in London in the mid-1980s who decided to raise money to support the striking miners of a small Welsh town.
