It’s way past time for another update to the LGBT list, don’t you think? The possibles are coming faster and faster, as the net (and producers) have realized just how popular these things are. Unfortunately, with that comes a lot of bad entries or, to my chagrin, gay-baiting movies or dramas where the synopsis or poster makes the story appear to be one thing but when you watch it turns out to be something completely different. Irritating. Not sure if I’ve caught all instances of the former, but sometimes one just has to move forward and get the information out.
Here we go, the newest additions to the LGBT Movies and Drama List!
