Bad gay movies

What was the worst LGBTQI+ flick?

“Leather Jacket Love Story” from 1997. Despite the copious nudity.

The main character is a not-so-hot twink that everybody finds irresistible. (Sadly, it was the actor’s last role and he died a few years ago.)

Bad acting. Bad direction. But then it was a David DeCoteau movie so it explains a lot.

"In & Out" was probably the worst I've ever seen.

Horseshit R2.

I agree with that, R2. The movie posits that being gay means you love Barbra Streisand and showtunes. (Which I do, I do.). But it gives short shrift to the fact that it’s about same-sex attraction. Selleck and Kline have the unsexiest screen kiss ever.

And the “I’m gay!” ending was dumb.

The only part that made me laugh was Shalom Harlow’s encounter with a rotary phone.

R2 as was usually the case, the best part of In & Out was Wilford Brimley.

Oh god, R5. I remember hearing all about it when it was released in 1992. This was back when small indie films would take forever to get around so I waited a year until it came to Northampton, MA in the summer of 1993. It was so basic it was ridiculous.

I never got the adoration for Araki anyway. But “Mysterious Skin” was a well-made film.

"Partners" with Ryan O'Neal and John Hurt. Offensive crap.

R9 At least we got to see Ryan O'Neal's ass.

Exactly. It felt like an After School Special.

Some of the films mentioned at that site aren't even gay 🙄

I can never share my nominee for all-time worst gay movie because I can't remember its name. I rented it from Netflix back when they sent you DVDs in the mail. If you were one to scour their LGBT section, maybe you saw it also and can remind me what it was called.

The entire movie had only three actors and three scenes. The first scene was a flashback of two high school bros on a camping trip, talking in a tent. The other two scenes were present day in one of the guys' apartment. The third actor played the retarded brother of one of the bros. The three scenes were bookended by interminable footage of the two bros walking around the city while maudlin music played. The plot was basically whether the bros would get together, and how it would affect the retarded brother. I'd tell you more, but I'm pretty sure that's all there was to it.

If this sounds familiar to you, I'm really sorry. But what was the name of it?

The Gay Deceivers plays like it was made in 1929.

I also got one of those cheap ass gay “films” from Netflix mail order way back when. It was entitled “House of Adam” and was shot on videotape which they tried to make look like film. The story was awful, the acting was awful.

They were at a house they kept saying was way out in the middle of nowhere but they are standing outside by a glass storm door and you can see car after car passing by maybe twenty feet away.

Any of that art house shit that Ms. Close trods out every few years to yet again try to get enough votes for a pity Oscar. At this point, they should just give her one so we don’t have to see her old ass in drag anymore.

One of the worst foreign-language gay films I've ever seen is the 2009 Brazilian shitfest called "From Beginning to End" (Do Começo ao Fim), which deals with the incestuous relationship between two half-brothers. Dreadful pacing, contrived plot/actings and an annoying score. The 2 leads are hot indeed (sadly, both are str8 in real life).

"Twilight of the Golds" was pretty bad.

Down Low - without a doubt the stupidest gay themed movie Ive ever seen. If anyone managed to make it past the first 20 minutes I'd love to hear how.
