Thanks to Hallmark and Lifetime, Xmas holiday movies are a THING (for better or worse) and since diversity is the key word today, naturally there have been a lot of LGBTQ themed movies popping up in the last couple of years.
This year features a SLEW of new ones including the premiere of one from the Queen herself, RuPaul! (Betch knows how to jump on the bandwagon to make those COINS!!!)
There’s also Netflix’s first gay holiday movie, “Single All The Way” starring out gay actor Michael “Ugly Betty” Urie AND the divine diva, Miss Jennifer Coolidge.
AND, lots of movies with the the subplot of: “Gay Son Brings Home New Boyfriend and Chaos Ensues!”
Plus, so many more!
