We're Here, We're Queer, We Want Good Gay Movies (A Watchlist)

Being a gay man and a lover of film, logic would dictate that I have seen a lot of gay (or other LGBTQ) movies.

This is going to serve as a watchlist of LGBTQ movies that I want to watch, no deadline attached, and I imagine it will be constantly expanding. Trying to find actually good LGBTQ movies and not the soft-core twink porn that so many are. Using as a personal reference, but posting publicly if other people want to watch some gay movies or if anyone has any recommendations (which I would certainly appreciate).

(Edit: Finally went through and added the movies people put in the comments. Well, the vast majority of them. Only took a year....)
