There are certain times of day when we just wish to sit on the couch and do nothing, some of us do not have a companion to join is in this very hard labour of relaxing, however there’s still a lot you can do by yourself or with your boyfriend, such as watching a film and cuddle while watching a film. That’s why I have decided to create list with some of the films I consider every gay person should know about.

1.  Prayers for Bobby

” It is based on the book, Prayers for Bobby: A Mother’s Coming to Terms with the Suicide of Her Gay Son, by Leroy F. Aarons, which is itself based on the true story of the life and legacy of Bobby Griffith, a young gay man who killed himself in 1983 due to his mother’s and community’s homophobia” Wikipedia

If you are a very sensitive person, there might a risk that you cry during the entire film.

2. A single man

” A Single Man is the story of George Falconer (Colin Firth), a middle-aged English college professor living in Los Angeles. George dreams that he encounters the body of his longtime partner, Jim (Matthew Goode), at the scene of the car accident that took Jim’s life eight months earlier. After awakening, George delivers a voiceover discussing the pain and depression he has endured since Jim’s death and his intention to commit suicide that evening ” Wikipedia

The way this film goes by is simply amazing, how a man cannot move on because of thinking about his old partner. The casual and deep connection between a student and a College teacher makes this film even more interesting, and please don’t forget the role of Jon Kortajarena as a Spanish male prostitute.

3. Freier Fall

The plot follows Marc, an expectant father and police officer who begins to develop feelings for a fellow policeman. The film was released on 23 May 2013. The casting of this film is composed by talented actors such as Hanno Koffler, Max Riemelt and Katharina Schüttler. A heart-touching drama is something that will make your heart beat faster than ever, scenes where you can believe people can sacrifice anything for true love.

 

4. My life in Pink

”Ludovic is a young boy who can’t wait to grow up to be a woman. When his family discovers the little girl blossoming in him they are forced to contend with their own discomfort and the lack of understanding from their new neighbors. Their anger and impatience cave and Ludovic is sent to see a psychiatrist in the hopes of fixing whatever is wrong with him. A movie that addresses trans-gender and gender issues in general through the eyes of a child.” Imdb

There is only a few amount of films that have made me cry and at some point influenced my life. Most of these films contain images and situations  that some of us would normally feel identified with.

5. Shopaholic

Women are vulnerable to shopping, gay men aren’t far away from suffering this syndrome. This film tells the story of a NY based Journalist trying to make her way to the most famous fashion Magazine in town, unfortunately this women has to deal a lot with debt collectors who are trying to turn her life into a living hell. A story worth to be watched
