Presents reviews of more than five hundred films along with a history of the way homosexuality was portrayed in motion pictures throughout the years.

Out, outrageous, provocative, and proud, this comprehensive anthology and library resource reviews 500 of the best of Hollywood's output of gay, bisexual, lesbian, transgendered, and queer questioning films, with a special emphasis on how gays changed the movies we know and love. Conceived as a working guide to what viewers should stock within their DVD queues, it reviews everything from blockbusters to indie sleepers, with about a dozen special features discussing the ironies, betrayals, subterfuge, and gossip of who, what, and how it happened when the film world's closet doors slowly creaked open beginning in 1960.

Blackwell Publishing
The World's production of 50 years of gay cinema has shattered the door to the Celluloid Closet. Thanks to this, and to a flood of classics re-released in DVD format, a brave new world of queer inconography has emerged for film junkies.

This book documents these trends. From the tawdry to the beautiful, The Love That Dared Not Speak its Name is now firmly entrenched as a voice in independent film. Fifty Years of Queer Cinema is loaded with insightful, opinionated reviews. These, coupled with dozens of uber-dishy special features, disrobe for the first time some eternal truths about queer icons which in years past were only whispered about.

It's Here At Last! An illustrated guide to film production that's Out, Outrageous, Provocative, and Proud. The Scent of Lavender, the Smell of Testosterone, and the Aroma of Velvet, all of it assembled into this comprehensive guide, with commentaries, to a half-century of GLBTQ filmmaking.
