Gun (1986), Gay
OK so there’s no LGBT film festival playing this classic at a midnight showing,
but Top Gun —
the story of a handful of guys training to become elite fighter pilots for the
U.S. — has some of the best homoeroticism (just say “Iceman” to any gay man and
dreams of Val Kilmer’s half naked body still comes to mind), a bromance between
Maverick and Goose (Tom Cruise and Anthony Edwards), and a closeted lesbian
actress playing a hot semi-cougar flying instructor (Kelly McGillis). It don’t
get much gayer than that. One enterprising YouTuber even recut the film as a 2
½ minute love story between Kilmer and Cruise.
