    Classic Films with a Gay Twist

    Fitzgerald's novel is one my favorite books which I've read many times but had never thought about the Carroway/Gatsby bromance. In the last remake because the characters are played an actual bromantic couple - Decaprio and Maguire that story line is even more obvious - the problem with all the movies is that Daisy is impossible to cast- she is like a dream girl that only exist in Gatsby's mind. Nick clearly is a more down to earth possibility- I wonder if Fitzgerald ever thought of giving the two men a happy ending?

    "The Great Gatsby" - at the end Gatsby realizes that his true love is Nick not Daisy

    Bromance

    This is more evident in the last remake in which Nick (Toby Maguire) and Leonardo Dicaprio's Gatsby had more chemistry with each other - than Leo had with the girl playing Daisy.

    Gay joking in straight classics

    I thought the movie was beautiful but the gay angle was one long tease

    Gay joking in straight classics

    Vampirism can be used as metaphor for homosexuality- even though most male movie vampires seem to only lust after women. I love lesbian vampires movies specially the Hammer films like " Lust for a Vampire"- actually as I was falling sleep watching "Carol" I was really hoping Cate Blanchet would turn into one...

    This is subplot they might consider for the next revival... ( and there is always slash fiction)

    "West Side Story" Tony and Mario must hide their secret love from their respective gangs or maybe Riff has this secret thing for Bernado ( A boy like that will make you gay!)

    "The Lost Weekend" in the novel Don's drinking problem is linked to his inability to deal with homosexual desires.

    " Back Street" ( 1961) could be shot with the same script just change the Sussan Heyward character to a man- ( Anthony Perkins perhaps?) The story would still be about a forbidden romance -you would need some tweaking- the wedding dress scene would have to be changed unless you wanted to make it a comedy.

    'Q' for questioning

    Until the 20th century heterosexuality was the only way for humanity to continue now there are other methods of procreation- yes we are taught that heterosexuality is the only way to create the sacred family unit.

    'Q' for questioning

    I think you raise a good point about generational acceptance- kids can be lot more open in high school not that they would never dream of in past decades. Gender might not define sexuality- because obviously then men would automatically only want to have sex with women- perhaps homosexuality is built into out genetic code- for reasons that only mother nature knows.

    My problem with Bruce Jenner is that if he did not go off to live a private life as transgender woman- not he became another Kardashian fame ****! Magazine covers! Reality tv shows! Adds for cosmetics! Seriously I thought he would have enough money to live on

    'Q' for questioning

    I would have stuck with the LGB label which covers all bases- Transgender people are a different issue all together- sometimes they become women who like women or men who like men or what ever strikes their fancy at the moment - look at Catlyn Kardashian who still can't make up her mind if she is going to date men? Q reminds me of how some gays started using the all inclusive "****" as if "**** cinema" but I guess that did not catch on...speaking of **** cinema - we need more gay movies in which gay's kick **** as in Greg Araki's "The Living End " (1992)

    'Q' for questioning

    How many more letters are we suppose to add to LGBT ? Now I'm sure there are people who question their sexuality later in life- but it's kind of preposterous to imagine that they did not know or felt same sex attraction at an earlier age. They might have denied it - or were afraid or unable to act upon it. There was a made for cable movie" Normal" (2003) with Jessica Lange and Tom Wilkinson as her husband who becomes a woman.

    Catlyn Jenner is a publicity gimmick dreamed up by the Kardashians...."Questioning" is another term for that old excuse- gee I was so drunk last night I forget if I had sex with a man.

    Hmmm isn't this what that Pat character on SNL was all about?
