Broken Hearts Club: just a must see gay movie.
Boy Culture: about a male hustler who refuses to fall in love
A Home at the End of the World: Colin Farrell is so cute in this movie, but in addition to his face, the movie deals with interesting aspects of love, a relationship and monogamy.

Latter Days: ONE OF MY FAVORITE GAY MOVIES. YOU NEED TO WATCH IT. (available for instant watch on netflix.. now you have no excuse)
Line of Beauty: Based on the novel of the same name by one of my favorite authors, alan hollinghurst. Basically, Nick Guest struggles to hide his homosexuality while simultaneously trying to find love in the 80s in the UK. The ending of the book made me cry, and the movie is a reasonable adaptation.
Yossi and Jagger: Basically, two men in the Israeli army fall in love. The movie had the potential to be great, but it was too short and didn’t allowe the viewer to fully connect with the characters. Another line that stuck out was who one of the guys explains that he’s tired of pushing beds together when they go on leave together- he wants more. Its really a heartbreaking movie.
Eating out/Eating out 2/Eating out 3: Basically a guy wants to get with this girl, so he pretends to be gay and gets with her gaybestfriend. Wompwomp.

Maurice: it has hugh grant in it, so everyone has to see it. But basically, british school, hot love
Get Real: really hot, school related jock/nerd love story.
Velvet Goldmine: about an iggy pop-type character (Ewan McGregor) who falls in love with a david bowie type character (Jonathan Rhys Meyers). lots of beautiful gay making out. but it’s really sad.
