Top 50 Favorite Gay Films

20 September 2010 4:40 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

A few weeks ago we asked readers to submit up to five of their favorite movies in our third annual favorite gay film poll. We wanted to see which older gay films have timeless appeal and which recent gay films you judged important enough to register in the rankings.

After voting closed we sorted through the nearly 15,000 nominations (representing over 500 individual titles) to identify your top fifty favorite gay films.

Tabulating this data is actually a bit harder than it sounds. For instance, do you know how many different ways our readers can type/abbreviate "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert?" We counted about a dozen!

But we're not complaining, because the list that resulted this year is actually rather interesting.

Nine new films made their way into the rankings, and five of these are of very recent vintage. This represents a strong showing for current queer cinema. »

Ask the Flying Monkey! (March 29, 2010)

29 March 2010 8:17 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

This week! The Kids in the Hall, whether it's okay to out dead celebrities, and lots and lots of Ugly Bettys! Plus, the most pleasurable "guilty pleasure" of all!

Q: In your recent column on coming out, you didn’t address outing celebrities posthumously. How should this be handled: "don't speak ill of the dead" or "add another name to the pantheon of the fabulous"?  – Hue-Man, Canada

A: I vote for “add another name to the pantheon of the fabulous.” Here’s why: There are two reasons why most media outlets (including are still at least somewhat sensitive to reporting that a closeted famous person is gay: (1) if the person hasn’t ever revealed it in an interview, it’s an indication that he or she thinks there would be career-repercussions and doesn’t want the world to know, and (2) we're not absolutely sure it’s true.

Q: So far my favorite scene in my favorite show, Glee, is Artie singing “Dancing With Myself.” How did that wonderful scene come about? – Marshall, Chicago, Il

Kevin McHale as Glee's Artie

A: “I think it was [creator] Ryan [Murphy’s idea],” Kevin McHale tells us of that striking scene that has him moving around the school in his wheelchair and singing, sometimes in normal motion while everyone else is in slow motion. “[Ryan] was the one who walked by me a few episodes before and he was, like, ‘Learn “Dancing With Myself.’ It was cool.”

As for the unique, wheel-popping choreography, “It was very unconventional,” Kevin admits. “Me and the choreographer, Zach [Woodlee], kind of knew what I could do in the chair. He’s amazing. It was us figuring certain types »

Q: As much as I like seeing all the scantily-clad men in Spartacus: Sand and Blood, I can’t help but wonder: how awkward must that be for the actors? – Walter, San Diego, CA

Spartacus (Andy Whitfield) gets sand in his codpiece

A: It’s definitely a challenge, at least according to Andy Whitfield, who plays Spartacus on the show.

“They hand you a costume, and you say, ‘That’s it?’” he tells “You go, ‘Okay, I’m going to have to create the rest of the character from my own flesh and blood.’ There’s nowhere to hide. You’ve got to show yourself to everyone who’s watching.”

Still, in some ways, the costume does help him get into character. “There’s no protection in what we wear. »
