    I own a Video store in downtown Los Angeles and we have a small but growing selection "Gay Interest" movies.  I'm about give them their own section and was wondering what to label it.  It's just that "gay interest" or "alternative lifestyles" doesn't sound right to me.  Is there a better term to use for this catagory?

    Also, I'd appreciate any input on some of your favorite movies that we could include in this section.  Thanking you in advance for your help (and apologizing if this is the wrong place to ask)

    •  You set up the store so that (0+ / 0-)

      the movies are all fems on one end and all male on the other end . In between you put them in order of fem to male ratio . No lables needed

      100% female , many females and 1 male , .... 50/50 female to male , ...... one female and many males , 100% male .

      Give everyone a choice of what they would like to see without any lables .

      Aside from obvious ones, like Brokeback Mountain...

      Making Love (Harry Hamlin, Michael Ontkean, Kate Jackson)

      Trembling before G-d (documentary)

      Maurice (Hugh Grant, and I am not sure who else)

      Tying the Knot (documentary)

      Jumping the Broom (documentary)

      Education of Shelby Knox is mostly about the quest to get comprehensive sex education into the Lubbock Texas School system, but it also touches on her advocacy for a Gay Straight Alliance as well.

      what you should call the section but here is a list quick off the top of my head.

      For the girlies:  High Art, Go Fish, Bound, Desert Hearts, Lianna, Better Than Chocolate, Saving Face, Imagine Me and You

      Others: Jeffrey, Latter Days, Mambo Italiano, The Wedding Banquet, Doubt, Kiss of the Spiderwoman, Priscilla Queen of the Desert

      Good luck.

      section and put them there.  Almost all Indie film fans are liberals and thus won't get all bent out of shape to see queer films there.
