Antoni's Pick: 'My Own Private Idaho'

Porowski considers the River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves film a must-watch.

Jonathan's Pick: 'Paris Is Burning'

Jonathan Van Ness cited the famed 1990 documentary, which focuses on the New York City drag community, as "an incredible gorgeous moving story."

"It was the first time I ever saw ballroom culture and young queer people, and it all took place in New York City in the 80s in a totally different time," he said in an interview at a Credit Karma event.

Karamo's Picks: 'Brother to Brother' and 'Moonlight'

Brown highlighted two films, 2016 Oscar-winning drama "Moonlight" and 2004 film "Brother to Brother," that he said serve as, "love stories to black queer people who have yearned to see themselves depicted authentically on screen."

"Both films honestly depict the challenges and triumphs of being a black, gay man in America," he shared. "And how the intersection of these two identities collide in a way that reveals the beauty of our community and experience."

Bobby's Pick: 'The Danish Girl'

Berk said he loves the Eddie Redmayne film because of what it "represents and the awareness it brings to the history of the LGBTQ community."

"This film is a testament to design -- both in costume and set -- to accurately portray the culture in the 1920s but the impactful love story is far more moving," he shared.

"The story shines a light on what would happen to a transgender [woman] in a time when it's not socially acceptable," he said.

"Two artists navigate their relationship and the resistance they face when a journey to self-discovery comes in contact with ignorance in Denmark and this era," Berk added. "You see the transition of Einar from male to female and the obstacles she goes through from doctors and spectators."

"The remarkable strength of her marriage during the transition is pure magic," he continued. "We've come a long way since the 20s but we have even more to go."

“Although the life of Jake Gyllenhall’s character was a world away from the life I lived, I connected so strongly with his desire for connection and love, in a community where homosexuality was so taboo,“ he said.
