Gay things for Jesse
Kill Your Darlings- About the new beat generation of poets in the 1940s, with Daniel Radcliffe and Dane Dehaan. Fucking 11/10
The Danish Girl- About a trans woman in the 1920s. Excellent.
Carol- About lesbians in the 50s. I’ve not seen it but by all accounts it’s very good.
Wilde- About Oscar Wilde, the god of the bisexuals. With Stephen Fry and Jude Law.
4th Man Out- Not historical but quite lighthearted and fun. About a guy who comes out to his very straight friends.
Gods and Monsters- Sir Ian Mckellen. That’s all.
Christopher and his Kind- 1930s gays with Matt Smith, who is made for period drama.
Out in the Dark- Not historical but about two men on either side of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. It’s only available with English subtitles but it will make you cry. 11/10
The Road To El Dorado: It’s not explicit but it’s gay as fuck. It’s even better when you know they originally intended the two main characters to be together and it really really shows.
Call the Midwife: 1950/60s midwives and has lesbians later on
Orange is the New Black: Lots of queer characters
Black Mirror: San Junipero is one of the best gay things I’ve ever seen and it’s an hour and a half so it’s basically a movie
Orphan Black: Has multiple queer characters and is very good for binging.
Brooklyn Nine Nine: Captain and Holt and Kevin are amazing.
Proxy- Sci Fi and one of my favourite books ever. Main character is gay and it’s mentioned many times.
Giovani’s Room- Period about a guy who falls in love with a guy named Giovanni. I don’t remember much about it but it’s good.
The Picture of Dorian Gray- Not explicit but the gayest fucking book in the world to anyone with eyes.
Percy Jackson- Excellent series and lots of representation towards the end of the series.
