Are you referring to Shinji Somai's Typhoon Club -- or some other film (by Jissoji)? (I can't recall many details of Typhoon Club -- last seemn too long ago).

Oshima's Gohatto has been mentioned, but many other Oshima films depict gay or queer characters; the Korean conscript who performs a harakiri after sodomizing a dutch prisoner of war in Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence, the Catholic priest in Death by Hanging, and the opening scene of In the Realm of the Senses. 

Also, there is a lesbian couple in Jissouji's Typhoon Club.----------------------------------------
