You Will Be Made to Care: Critics Rave about LGBTQ Films that Bomb at the Box Office

Hollywood is certainly playing its part in this indoctrination process. There has been a concerted effort by the film industry to present a positive portrayal of the LGBTQ lifestyle. According to industry analysis site, out of over 200 film genres and sub-genres, gay and Lesbian-themed films rank an astounding #6 in terms of sheer quantity. Since 2007, some 342 gay/lesbian movies have been produced - more than double the number of films with a Christian theme.

Furthermore, the film review site reports that gay and lesbian films typically receive top ratings from hundreds of reviewers as well as garnering an impressive number of award nominations. One recent example, "Call Me by Your Name," a movie about an older man's "romance" with a 17-year-old boy, had a Rotten Tomatoes average rating of 95% and picked up four Academy Award nominations. This despite the film being labeled a "dishonest, dangerous film" by no less than a commentator in the liberal Boston Globe because of its pederastic depiction of sexual relations between an adult and a minor.

The people, as they say, vote with their feet, and despite the enthusiastic endorsements of the film critics and award presenters, the box office receipts tell a very different story. Gay and lesbian movies rarely do well at the box office. The aforementioned Christian-themed films, despite being dwarfed by the numbers of gay and lesbian offerings, have accumulated nearly three times the gross receipts.

As an example, 2004's "The Passion of the Christ" - despite a mediocre 49% rating by the film critics - accumulated $370,782,930 in U.S. revenues, tripled the earnings of the top-selling gay-themed movie, the comedy "Birdcage" (#490). Not one of the 600 top grossing films has had a gay theme that included any overt homosexual elements.

In fact, a review of the all-time top grossing films reveals that of the top 40 films of all time, only one - "The Passion of the Christ" - was rated "R" (and understandably so). Without exception, all of the top-grossing films were either rated "G" "PG" or "PG-13."

Not a single LGBTQ-themed film appears high on the list. Even the highly-touted "ground-breaking" gay film "Brokeback Mountain" was buried way back in the pack, ranking a measly #873 on the list of top-grossing movies.
