Gay Firefighters: The Last Taboo.

The Washington Post predicts the success of “Brokeback Mountain” will ease the development of more mainstream gay movies.


Included on the list are adaptations of gay classics like Patricia Neal Warren’s “The Front Runner,” and “The Mayor of Castro Street,” about the late, great Harvey Milk.

Which made me wonder – what great gay stories would I like to see made into movies?

How about…

“The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay,” starring Jamie Bell and Benjamin Mackenzie
“Brideshead Revisited,” starring Jude Law and Paul Bettany (oh, wait…)
“The Clay Aiken Story,” starring Topher Grace and Vin Diesel
“Ulysses,” starring Harry Connick Jr, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Cillian Murphy as Molly Bloom.
“The Vin Diesel Story,” starring The Rock and Cole Hauser
“The Boy With Clawz,” starring Heath Ledger, and introducing Chris Pine, as the nubile assistant.
“Missy Elliot,” starring Queen Latifah.
“Massage Oil And Me: Inspired by a True Story,” starring John Travolta.
“Vatican,” starring Ian McKellan.

My number one favorite new gay movie that will clearly become a blockbuster, though, definitely has to be “Silence of the Clams: The Jodie Foster story,” starring Dakota Fanning. It’s the role she was spawned to play!

Is Clay Aiken bisexual or gay? Now that is something I would like to know.
