The Most Influential Gay Moments in Movie & TV History

It's a tall order, but we combed through all of the scenes in our database of sexy scenes from movies and television to bring you the most influential gay moments ever caught on camera. Hollywood has the power to shift public opinion, and these bold stories serve to foster gay acceptance across the world. Why not start from the very beginning? The first ever Best Picture Oscar winner was 1927's Wings, which features a surprise scruff to scruff kiss between two male soldiers. We been get from the beginning ya'll.

The seminal gay porno Boys In The Sand blurred the line between adult and mainstream, being the first gay adult movie to be screened in theaters and reviewed by film critics. 90s "it" celebrities Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix dared to bring a tender love story to the screen during the height of the AIDS epidemic with My Own Private Idaho. When Phoenix was asked about public backlash, he stated "Fuck them. That's all I can say. A big capital F, a U-C-K, and THEM. T-H-E-M." Icon.

Jaye Davidson delivered one of the most talked about scenes in movie history in The Crying Game when his trans character revealed that she was assigned male at birth by exposing her downstairs to the camera. Shocked audiences were not made aware of the reveal beforehand. America's actor Tom Hanks played a man dying of AIDS in the heart-wrenching drama Philadelphia.

The gay storyline in Dawson's Creek helped many a gay millennial get in touch with his sexuality. Those same gay millennials quickly headed to Blockbuster after establishing their gayness to rent the steamy Y tu mama tambien, which features multiple homoerotic scenes with future A-listers Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna. And... two years later... they rented The Dreamers, where Louis Garrel and Eva Green lure Michael Pitt into their web of French sex games.

Plus on this playlist of the most influential gay scenes in movie and TV history, we're checking out the seminal gay love stories Brokeback Mountain and Call Me By Your Name, as well as recent viral gay scenes in The White Lotus and Bros - the first gay romantic comedy released by a major studio. Thanks to all of these men for putting the "his" in history!
