We hope you enjoy them.


Make The Yuletide Gay (2009)

A uni student is out on his college campus, but hasn’t told his parents that he’s gay.

When he goes home for Christmas, his closeted act seems to be going fine until his current boyfriend shows up unannounced!

Scrooge & Marley (2012)

This movie is an extremely gay version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

The fabulous Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by three ghosts, including a Ghost of Christmas Past in drag, and must reconcile with the youthful romance that he gave up in pursuit of financial gain.

Watch the trailer below!

Meet Me At St Louis (1944)

This movie is hardly gay, but it does have queer icon, Judy Garland singing one of our fave Christmas songs, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas! Plus it’s high on the camp value.

In the year leading up to the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair, four sisters learn lessons of life and love as they prepare for a reluctant move to New York City.

Too Cool For Christmas (2004)

Sixteen-year-old Lindsay Dearborn is too cool for Christmas until she gives Santa a 21st century makeover.

Her two dads aren’t too pleased when she leaves for the night to help him deliver presents in a muscle car!

Two adults and a child sit in chairs adjacent to each other next to a Christmas tree.

Red Lodge (2013)

Red Lodge is a perceptive look at how marriage equality has affected gay relationships.

This is a holiday story of two men trying to figure out just how much in love they really are — and if that love includes marriage.

Warning: it’s also likely to coax a tear or two from the romantics among you.

And best of all, you can watch it for free on Vimeo below!

The Family Stone (2005)

An uptight, conservative businesswoman accompanies her boyfriend to his family’s annual Christmas celebration.

She quickly finds that she’s a fish out of water to their free-spirited way of life, and a whiff of homophobia in her attitude to her boyfriend’s gay brother turns her into a pariah.

Watch the excruciating clip below!

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph gets bullied by the other reindeer for being different.

Hermie the Elf lost his job in Santa’s workshop for having different interests.

Rudolph, Hermie, bearish prospector Yukon Cornelius and the yeti-like Bumble form a community with the ghettoized residents of the Island of Misfit Toys.

Sounds pretty gay to us! Watch the full movie below.
