What are some good gay-themed plays?

I know "Angels in America" is a good one, but I'm wondering if there are any other gay-themed plays out there that I could possibly pull a monologue out of. I'm 23 years old, and a male.

    The ones that instantly come to mind besides Angels in America are:

    Little Dog Laughed (This is an amazing play) - Douglas Carter Beane

    Love! Valour! Compassion! - Terrence McNally

    The Lisbon Traviata - Terrence McNally

    The Laramie Project - Moises Kaufman

    Jeffrey - Paul Rudnick

    The Invention of Love - Tom Stoppard

    Take Me Out - Richard Greenberg

    In addition, On The Purple Circuit has a great list of the most influential Gay & Lesbian plays:

    The Laramie Project. It's PERFECT for your purpose actually. It's a series of monologues! It's a whole bunch of interviews put together into a play about the murder of Matthew Sheppard, a gay Wyoming resident.

    A really good heavy one is The Laramie Project.

    It's very realistic and centers around a gay man who was beat to death.

    It's a crew that's interviewing around the town of Laramie trying to get everyone's POV on the subject.

    It's very deep and moving, I loved it!

    "Norman is that you" was really funny if you use the gay ending. It was written in a time when gay things were not widely accepted on stage so there was a not so gay and a gay ending written so directors and theaters could chose what they wanted to show.
