Brace yourselves. This list of the Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies is probably going to generate some howls of protest thanks to a rather major upset in the rankings. Frankly, one that surprised the hell out of us here at AfterElton.

But before we get to that, an introduction. A few weeks ago we asked AfterElton readers to submit up to ten of their favorite films by write-in vote. We conducted a similar poll several years ago, but a lot has happened culturally since then, and a number of worthy movies of gay interest have been released. We wanted to see how your list of favorites had changed.

We also wanted to expand our list to 100 from the top 50 we had done previously. We figured there were finally enough quality gay films to justify the expansion. And we wanted to break out gay documentaries onto their own list (You'll find the »

Actor Breaks Hand During Onstage Slap

17 January 2012 9:38 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

What was supposed to be a fake slap became a real smack last weekend at the Huntington Theatre Company's production of "God of Carnage." Thirty minutes before the end of the Jan. 14 matinee, Tony-Award-nominee Johanna Day, who plays Veronica, broke her hand when slapping cast member Stephen Bogardus during a scene. He was not injured. A fight director had choreographed the scene, but a Huntington representative told Playbill.com, "Something simply went amiss this time around."Day finished the performance and then went to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with a broken bone in her hand. The Jan. 14 evening performance was cancelled, and the production resumed shows the next day with revised fight choreography. Huntington's "God of Carnage" is scheduled to run through Feb. 6. . »
