21 Best (and Worst) Queer Movie Villains

Xerxes — 300 (2007)

Rodrigo Santoro is the bejeweled borderline drag queen villain in this overblown epic that’s equal parts homophobic and homoerotic. Thoroughly Reprehensible


Zuse — Tron: Legacy (2010)

Michael Sheen channels both Tilda Swinton and The Rocky Horror Picture Show’s Dr. Frank N. Furter in this silly sequel to Disney’s cyber fantasy. Damaging Stereotype


Silva — Skyfall (2012)

Javier Bardem hits it out of the park as the complex, vanilla-tressed gay villain that James Bond deserves. Evil But Awesome
