Take a look at this list of the top-grossing or most visible gay and bisexual movies of the last ten years: Brokeback Mountain, Milk, Capote, Taking Woodstock, A Home at the End of the World, Howl, Far From Heaven, The Hours, Little Ashes, Brideshead Revisited, I Love You Phillip Morris, Kinsey, and A Single Man.
Notice anything that they all have in common – other than the fact that most of them are quite good?
They're all set in the past – as is J. Edgar, an upcoming movie directed by Clint Eastwood and written by Dustin Lance Black that is getting considerable buzz, and the upcoming James Franco movie, The Broken Tower.
What's that about?

One of our favorite mantras around the AfterElton offices is “because visibility matters.” Indeed, the idea that gay and bisexual men need to be visible, both to ourselves and to the wider culture, is one of the principle reasons AfterElton.com even exists.
