Queer

An ongoing list of all of the queer fictional feature films that I've watched, sorted alphabetically. What I define as a "queer film" is of course subjective and case-by-case, but I'm generally drawn to films with prominent, unambiguous queer content. That doesn't necessarily mean "good" representation, only that it exists. By "content" I also mean some sort of significant scene or narrative arc, not just a passing reference. I also have a Queerish list for films with suggestive moments that can't quite be called "unambiguous."

This list is also mainly for my own purposes; it's not supposed to be a comprehensive list of all queer films, just the ones that I've seen. I'll try to update this list every time I watch a new film that needs addition.
