And Carl Theodore Dreyer's "Michael" (1924). And William Dieterle's "Sex in Chains" (1928). And the entire filmography of Kenneth Anger. And Otto Preminger's "Advise & Consent" (1962), which was the first American film to show the inside of a gay bar. Etc., etc., etc.

This puff piece doesn't even scratch the surface of the topic it attempts to address.

The earliest gay movie I've seen is the classic "Different From The Others ("Anders als die Andern") released in 1919 and starring Conrad Veidt of "Casablanca" fame.
