We all love a good gay movie — especially when it’s available at the click of a button whenever the fancy strikes us to watch. To help you stay up-to-date on what’s available, I’ve rounded up some of the newest offerings to hit Netflix instant in the last month. I’ve attached trailers and Netflix descriptions, too, so you don’t get roped in to two hours of snoredom.
