1. FILM: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Make your holidays gay by viewing the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which features performances from gay and bisexual actors Luke Evans, Lee Pace, and Stephen Fry. That’s not to mention the out Sir Ian McKellan, whose reprised performance as wizard Gandalf the Grey is a welcome guide back through the fantastical world of Middle Earth. Critics have praised the second installment of The Hobbit trilogy, in which Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) resumes his quest alongside 13 dwarves to reclaim a lost kingdom, as a thrilling continuation of the series that is marked by strong storytelling and a fierce dragon voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, directed by Peter Jackson, opens in theaters this weekend. Watch the trailer below.— Daniel Reynolds
