Here’s Robert Hofler’s List of the ’10 Gayest Movies Ever Made’

Here's Robert Hofler's List of the '10 Gayest Movies Ever Made'

Michael Musto asked Robert Hofler — author of “Sexplosion: From Andy Warhol To A Clockwork Orange, How a Generation of Pop Rebels Broke All The Taboos,” a study of late 1960s/early 1970s culture, to name what are in his opinion the “10 gayest movies ever made” for Musto’s column at OUT Magazine

“The reason these works were so gay is that even if they only included quick images or coded references, they were revolutionary at the time, moving things well into the future with their groundbreaking sexuality,” Musto explains. “And some of them were less apologetic than others, blazing trails with LGBT wildness that hasn’t necessarily been topped (or even bottomed) all these decades later.”

Here’s the list, which is in our opinion of the more thoughtful attempts to listify the history of gay cinema, even though everything is clearly subjective especially when it comes from one mind. So do you agree? What in your opinion is “the gayest movie of all-time”?
