With so many high-profile gay movies taking up room on our warehouse shelves (see Tom of Finland, Beach Rats, BPM (Beats Per Minute), God’s Own Country and, of course, Call Me by Your Name) – and as today is the first day of spring (not that you’d know it over here on the East Coast) – we thought it prudent to do a little spring cleaning and clear some space. We just tossed a whole bunch of great gay movies onto our Clearance List! Below we’re highlighting ten special picks (and ten additional picks that we posted yesterday), but don’t stop there!

2014, United States
A powerful feature-length documentary that examines different personal perspectives on an important figure, Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine focuses, of course, on Matthew Shepard, the gay young man who was tortured and murdered in one of the most notorious hate crimes in U.S. history. Directed by Michele Josue, a close friend of Shepard’s, the film revisits the shocking case with never-before-seen photos, rare video footage, and new revelations about Shepard’s all-too-brief life.
