The 25 Greatest Gay Documentaries

Looking for a must-see list of great gay documentaries? We’ve got you covered. We recently asked our readers to nominate up to five of their favorite documentary films via write-in vote. Thousands responded and we tabulated the results to bring you the top 25 here. All of these films are definitely worth a look and to help you learn more about titles you might not be familiar with, we’ve included trailers, links to reviews, official film websites and more. Plus, for three of the titles we’ve even embedded the full movie thanks to the Logo Docs library.
