Christmas is here and with it hopefully a little well-deserved R&R. Even though there are not nearly enough gay-themed Christmas movies out there, you can still put the gay in your yuletide when picking out a movie to watch over the holidays. Here are a few of our picks–do you have any movies to add?
Make The Yuletide Gay (2009)
Yes, that is really the name of the movie! The story evolves around Gunn (Keith Jordan) who is an out college student who suddenly gets hesitant about coming out to his family when he goes home for Christmas.
The Family Stone (2005)
The story evolves around the gay, deaf son and his black partner who takes the opportunity at the annual Christmas family gathering to announce that they want to start a family. Even though the gay theme is almost overloaded with minority cliches, it is still a good little movie about a world with less prejudice and more open-mindedness.
Meet Me In St. Louis (1944)
Speaking of gay cliches this musical is a favorite of many. Although there is no evident gay theme, this is the movie where Judy Garland and Vincente Minnelli met (and later had Liza…), and the song “Have Yourself a Merry little Christmas” was written for this film as well.
A Diva’s Christmas Carol (2000, Hallmark)
Although not overtly gay the producers of this TV flick must’ve had a gay audience in sight: The brilliant Vanessa Williams stars in the modernized version of Scrooge and Kathy Griffin appears as the Ghost of Christmas Past. I mean, helloooo, that’s pretty gay…
So, the movie plot of interlooping stories surrounding a drug deal is not super christmassy–but it does take place around Christmas! And we get to enjoy 90ies TV heart throbs Scott Wolf and Jay Mohr as the cutest and very closeted gay couple… Do you have any favorite gay-themed christmas movies?
