Pride On Screen: 25 Essential Queer Films

Pride On Screen

19 Shortbus
John Cameron Mitchell (2006)

Mitchell’s sex-positive opus is named after the school vehicle that picks up the “special kids,” and it’s also the name of the club where the film’s real, live New Yorkers have real, live sex—in a space that’s safe for them. This isn’t pornography; this is humanism at its finest and queerest. Its empathy is so rich that it even takes a moment to let a young gay man find compassion for an older one, who woefully recalls remaining silent through the AIDS crisis out of fear.
