 Gay Comedy “The Birdcage” At 25

It’s hard to believe “The Birdcage” is 25 years old. I remember rushing to see it when it first came out. I was very young and there wasn’t much gay content back then. So anything that was gay I couldn’t wait to see. 

For those who don’t know, this was actually a reboot before reboots were popular. 

Released 25 years ago this week, Nichols’ film, a remake of the 1978 French film La Cage aux Folles, about a gay couple hosting an ill-fated dinner party, remains remarkably relevant in its comedic sensibilities. 

Here’s more. I’ve seen the 1978 film many times, too, and it’s one of those movies you can watch over and over and never get sick of it. But both are classic gay films I truly love to this day. 


“Best Gay Novel In Years. This story will stay with you and you will feel you know every character and the beauty of their home in the mountains of North Carolina.”

“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
