And it had to be Fresh. The final list was culled from a longlist of hundreds, after which the films were ranked according to the Adjusted Tomatometer, which acts as a kind of inflation adjustment, taking into consideration the Tomatometer score, as well as the number of reviews a film received relative to the average number of reviews for films released that same year. We did not include miniseries, leaving out seminal works like Angels in America , nor movies made for TV. And we recognize that some of the films in the list will re-ignite healthy debates that have been fixtures of discussion around LGBTQ films — straight actors playing gay characters, cis actors playing trans characters, and the historical dominance of white male perspectives. For now, join us as we celebrate the work of hundreds of filmmakers whose talents and risks have opened up the possibilities of cinema.

To convince Hollywood executives and casting directors that LGB-themed films with LGB actors playing LGB roles can be critically and commercially successful across wide audiences, entertainment insiders and consumers alike can use their money, influence and social media platforms to support, promote, and elevate LGB-inclusive content, while using those same resources to push back against content they find exclusionary. What about giving me one for playing a straight man? One need not look far to see that Hollywood often fails to provide both representation of, and employment to, members of marginalized communities. Movements like OscarsSoWhite, and continued pushback against cisgender actors playing trans roles, have been increasingly covered in media the past few years. Yet the Gay for Pay Problem has not had the same attention, at least in the recent past, as other ways that Hollywood is willing to tell stories from marginalized groups without hiring marginalized people.

In the s, Tab Hunter was a blue-eyed, blond-haired, all-American movie star who rose to fame playing hunky romantic leads opposite Sophia Loren, Natalie Wood, and the French star Etchika Choureau, whom he almost married.
