This Weekend’s VOD Favorites

The Gay Cinema Video On Demand experience at TLAgay.com has your entertainment needs covered! We’re always working to expand selection of new and old gay-themed movies available for your viewing pleasure. Here’s just five of our current favorites, from various years, that you may have missed – ALL available to watch INSTANTLY! These aren’t our TOP 5, by any means – just a handful of flicks we want to highlight.

Fair Haven
After a long stay in ex-gay conversion therapy, James (Michael Grant), a young piano prodigy, returns home to his family farm and his emotionally distant father, Richard (Tom Wopat). After Richard pressures James to give up his music career and take over the farm, James agrees as a way to make up for his past. Soon, however, James finds himself face-to-face with his former lover, Charlie (Josh Green), who wants to help him turn away from his new beliefs and family expectations, and follow his dreams of studying music. A touching and deeply romantic drama, Fair Haven is often heartbreaking, but ultimately life-affirming. The performances, across the board, are terrific. Veteran character actor Wopat is excellent as the reserved, conflicted father and young up-and-comers Green and Grant make their forbidden romance palpable (and very sweet).

Leather
Producer-director Patrick McGuinn‘s Leather is this tender, sexy and unconventional romance. Upon news of the death of his estranged father, blond twenty-something Andrew (Andrew Glaszek), with his boyfriend Kyle in tow, travels from New York City to a cottage in the remote wooded area of the Catskill Mountains – where his father lived and where Andrew was raised. There he meets the bearded Birch (Chris Graham), Andrew’s childhood friend who had lived with Andrew’s father in a simple 19th-century style. Meeting Birch proves to be unsettling as he seems to be the son his father always wanted – someone he could fish and hunt with, someone who could work with one’s hands. As they spend time together, dynamics begin to shift and Andrew’s initial distrust of Birch morphs into physical interest and empathy – while young Kyle (a hilariously animated Jeremy Neal in a scene-stealing role) becomes increasingly threatened.

Our Top 15 Gay Movies of 2018

2018 was an incredible year for movies… and movies centered around gay men in particular. Not only was there a wealth of titles to choose from, but many of them rose above the gay movie niche and made a huge splash on the international film fest circuit. Some even broke through into the mainstream (say what you will about, Bohemian Rhapsody, but that flick is a box office juggernaut). Check out our Top 15 Gay Movies of 2018 below and make sure to pick up your copies on DVD and Blu-ray at TLAgay.com!

 

Editor’s Note: We limited our considerations to titles that we have available currently on our site (including pre-orders). So, while films like Boy Erased and the previously mentioned Bohemian Rhapsody may be great, they don’t qualify for this particular list as they haven’t been announced yet for DVD, Blu-ray or VOD.
