Lunch Break Video: Retrospective: “Gays In Film”

http://img2.timeinc.net/ew/dynamic/imgs/090114/Heath-Ledger/Brokeback-Mountain_l.jpgWe all know about LGBT classics like Brokeback Mountain, Making Love and Personal Best but what makes this video of gays in film really interesting is some of the really early films that had same-sex moments.

This is a quick history of the medium and it’s representation of homosexuals in cinema over the last 100 years. The music is Something To Talk About by Badly Drawn Boy.

Enjoy!

One Remark

  1. The film clip really made me think. I remember being invited to attend the second of the first four national conferences on AIDS in the United States when Longtime companion came out; a time when I saw the suffering of some very dear friends and the reality of losing them. I was dealing with bring free and alone and out when Making Love came out. I spent 17 years with a man who could have been a twin emotionally and in some respects, physically, to Ennis in Brokeback Mountain. It’s been three years now since he committed suicide rather than deal with being positive. I wonder how the movies will reflect what is going on in my life next.
