The huge success of Brokeback Mountain has opened doors for other gay characters in movies.

According to contactmusic.com, a new movie The Night Listener starring Robin Williams as a gay writer and two other films Quinceanera  and Shock To The System will be released soon.

Actor Chad Allen, who stars as a gay detective in Shock To The System, said: "There was a huge fear or belief that you couldn't tell a story with a gay hero and have it make money. A well-made movie with a good story trumps everything. It's not just a victory for gay rights; it's a victory for humanity."
