LGBTQIA+ Australian films + miniseries

Australian films with lgbtqia+ characters. I don't think there's a list like this on here, yet.

I’ve trawled google (I haven't seen or even heard of most of these films so I've had to go by what others have said about them) but suggestions welcome.

I’m not looking to make any judgement calls on representation i.e. is it 'good' or 'bad' in the film as I’d like this to be as comprehensive as possible. (I also, as I said, haven't seen most, anyway). Side and background characters welcome, as is subtext (though, naturally, that's going to be a matter of interpretation), mainly because I feel like there aren’t many with central characters. Docos and short films welcome too.
