I have 3 names coming to mind:
I don't know if he is (I believe he's still alive)... it is for sure one of his favorite topics.
Kiss of the Spider Woman - What a great movie that is! Makes me want to watch it again now that you mentioned it...
Great topic, CLV! Thank you for this!
I don't know about Babenco either. His filmography is certainly full of gay-themed films, but one can't assume...
Derek Jarman, English film director, stage designer, and author, is interesting. So many of his films are controversial--All are innovative in some way.
In no particular order:
John Cameron Mitchell
