LGBT characters in films that I've seen

A list of films that I've seen that have at least one LGBT character. Includes everything from bona fide queer cinema where we're the main plot, to films that only use us as a stereotypical punchline or cameo.

WARNING: Due to society's continued "surprise" that queer people even exist, and many filmmakers' use of that surprise for dramatic or comedic effect, in some cases the mere inclusion on this list may be considered a SPOILER.
