Queersighted On Gay Cinema

AOL's Queersighted is running a neat promotion:
How were gays portrayed in classic Hollywood? Find out this month when Turner Classic Movies airs 44 films covering six decades of gay pride and prejudice in cinema. Starting with Algie the Miner from 1912, the series takes viewers through the film eras of Pre-Code, Classic Hollywood, Code-Busters and ends up in the year 1969 when things became more Out and Open with groundbreaking films like The Boys In the Band.

AOL's is the exclusive online partner for the festival and is showing rare movie trailers (many never seen by modern audiences), interviews with panelists like Armistead Maupin, Don Murray, Alan Cummings and Charles Busch, photos of the stars and original movie posters.

At the link above, people can also download a complete schedule of dates, times and movie listings for this series that will run Mondays and Wednesdays during the month of June on TCM.
