Queer Films Everyone Must See

The title says it all. Not comprehensive (yet). I'm only listing the films I've seen so far. Hoping to one day make this is a 1001 Queer Films You Must See Before You Die list, but we'll see...

We've got films covering any identity under the queer spectrum - docs, films, stand up and shorts. Wide variety of the queer lens here. Some aren't the best examples of queer films or certain communities, but I feel a lot of these have at least some good queer quality to them that is significant. I've also put in a few titles that are controversial because I feel like their inclusion also add to the scope of the genre such as Sleepaway Camp…
