As a heterosexual man, would you be willing to watch a movie purely centered around gay relationships and gay culture?
I've seen Jeffrey, Priscilla, Paris is burning, lots other gay cinema.
Very gay movie.
What's the big deal? If you like movies, subject matter shouldn't be too important, how its handled and how well the movie is made around it are much more important
Let me say something else.
If you won't watch something because it's centered around a gay relationship and gay characters, even something as mainstream as Broke back Mountain, I'm not interested in your opinion on any other movie, because you must suck.
I think I am finally starting to understand all this whining about how we need more female leads and representation.
If there are so many straight people who can't even watch a story with gay people in it then we really need stories for everyone.

But there aren't.
What decides how many people watch something is marketing, not content.
It's the studios that have to change in any case.
He's talking about basic psychology you mental plebian. A viewer will always subconsciously attempt to identify with someone they're observing, which is why we have protagonists and antagonists. If the viewer can't identify with anyone, they will probably dislike the story on a very basic level.
No, but I'll watch movies that have gay couples in them. What do you mean by "purely centered around gay relationships and gay culture"? I've honestly never seen a movie like that.
The closest I've seen are movies like:
>Blue is the Warmest Color
>Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Each of those films features a protagonist who is either homosexual or is in the process of experimenting with their sexuality, but the films aren't really about "gay culture".
