Gay Cinema: T–LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer)

T: LGBTQ+ Films whose titles begin with T

Gay Directors, Gay Films? By Emanuel Levy (Columbia University Press, August 2015)

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (or Questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity).

These films are gay, explicitly or implicitly, in their texts, subtexts, performers, and target audiences.

Some films are explicitly gay because their plot is gay-themed (coming out, for instance) or they contain at least one gay character (open or latent about his/her sexuality).

Other films are perceived as gay due to their sensibility and sense of humor (gay camp) and the fact that they are embraced by mostly gay viewers who see gay or camp qualities in them that straight viewers might not.

Still others acquire a more overt gay meaning when it is revealed that their performers are or were gay, as is the case of Vincent Price, George Sanders, Rock Hudson, Tab Hunter, Ian McKellen.
