Gay Love Story

Carol. "Her Story." Brokeback Mountain. The list goes on and on, but one thing stays the same: There's rarely ever a tale so compelling, so poignant, so darn-right moving, as a gay love story. From the mythological Achilles morning his lover Patroclus to the gritty modern vision Moonlight, gay love stories have been a cornerstone of narrative for millennia, even during periods when such relationships had to be kept a secret. These stories have taught audiences not only to feel for the characters, but to understand and treat with sympathy the plight of LGBT people as a whole. The Advocate keeps you abreast of all gay love story news.
