The Back-Up Plan — Jennifer Lopez marks her return to the big screen in this rom-com about a woman who decides after years of trying and failing to find the right man to have a baby on her own through artificial insemination. She then meets Mr. Right on the taxi ride home. Gay Six Feet Under executive producer Alan Poul directs, and sexy Alex O’Loughlin co-stars.
City of Your Final Destination — Anthony Hopkins plays a gay man who gives a graduate student permission to write a book about his recently deceased brother, obscure writer Jules Gund.

Pornography: A Thriller — Three stories are woven together in this film about gay porn star Mark Anton who mysteriously disappears at the height of his fame. The film tracks his story from his disappearance more than two decades ago to present day, when a porn star writes and hopes to start in a story about his life.
Nobody's Daughter, Hole —Yes, Hole. The band's first album in 12 years pulls no punches, with honest lyrics and rocking guitars. Courtney Love is still snarlingly tough, especially after a stint in rehab. We hope you're looking forward to some music videos (artists other than Gaga still make those?!) from the album directed by wild-minded David LaChapelle.
Fearless Love, Melissa Etheridge — Melissa's newest album is a mix of soft and sweet, that never leaves us any doubt that the woman has the musical chops to be an everlasting presence in music.

Fish Out of Water — What does the Bible really say about homosexuality? This award-winning documentary uses original animation and academic interviews to dissect seven verses frequently used to condemn homosexuality and justify marriage discrimination.
The Young Victoria — The heaving bosom of gay fave Emily Blunt (we’re still swooning from her Sapphic turn in 2004’s My Summer of Love) helps breathe fresh life into this look at the passion-filled early years of the dour British monarch Queen Victoria.
