In communal living, sexual orientation is exposed to both exclusion and marginalization especially because of the patriarchal communal organization. It may be said that the ones named as homosexuals and have different sexual orientation encounter many difficulties in their daily life arising from the reason of the obdurate stance of the paternalistic structure in respect of the communal gender identity. If the media tools are thought as broadcasting with the perspective of patriarchy, as Neumann’s Spiral of Silence Model, the individuals who are not supported by the media will stop speaking and hold their tongue as they think that their thoughts will not be accepted in communal platform and they may be excluded as they are in minority. It is seemed that the homosexuals who are not supported by the media tools and reflected with their negative sides, are handled within the frame of the man dominated ideology when regarding movies. The cinema, which is one of the media tools that has an influence on human standpoint, may marginalize the homosexual individuals and might give rise to the homosexuals to be perceived as contrarian to the communal values. Within this scope, the sexist and marginalized discourses found in the movies as well as the communal resources of the discourses will be studied with the critical discourse analysis
