Tangentially related, but somehow it connects for me. Here's a newly-composed list of top 10 gay movies, written by a straight guy:

True, but today's young American gays can be a remarkably conservative lot, who want to be seen as normal people who settle down and get married and have children and chase their legal right to be presumed as generic and boring as straight people. A movie like this (which admittedly was not created with American audiences in mind, necessarily) tends to be viewed as an obstacle to this goal.

Actually, I'd forgotten about it, although in the back of my mind I thought I'd posted about it a few months ago. Anyway, there's never anything wrong with hot Brazilian guys fucking!

Why uncomfortable? Would that be because the lovers are brothers?

A Brazilian film called Do Começo Ao Fim has already generated controversy due to the subject matter: it's about a pair of brothers who also happen to be lovers.

As if that wouldn't already generate publicity for the film, the filmmakers are letting the public choose the film's poster--instructions (and a trailer for the film) are at the link--personally, I prefer and voted for the poster on the right, which strikes me as much more daring and original--like, hopefully, the film itself--than the rather generic poster on the left.
