The Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St., is showing three LGBT films of note during January.

Until Jan, 18, the center is showing the biopic Tom of Finland. The life behind the legend is the subject of this biopic of artist Touko Laaksonen ( played by Pekka Strang ), who became world famous under the pseudonym Tom of Finland for his erotic drawings of hunky leather-clad men, influencing the direction of gay culture in the process.

No Dress Code Required will run Jan. 21 and 25. After a Mexican Supreme Court judge rules same-sex marriage legal, longtime partners Victor and Fernando decide to marry in their hometown of Mexicali, Baja California, touching off a two-year bureaucratic panic among local civil authorities that is central to this tale.

Lastly, God's Own Country will run Jan. 26-Feb. 1. The British film focuses on a love story between two men who ultimately negotiate a passionate truce across a steep divide of culture and resistance.
