lgbt

every lgbt feature length i've seen ranked by my personal favourites. notes are mini, spoiler free reviews so u know what ur getting urself into! very welcome to suggestions!!!

not including: subtle subtext, side/ensemble characters only, negative tropes or bait, documentaries, short films, or films adopted by gay culture - edit; made a list for this sort of stuff!

disclaimer! bc i didn’t expect this list to gain any traction!


this definitely started out as a personal project and i'm so glad it took off bc this is the list i wish i had when i was getting into queer cinema! 
i started this when i was 18 so if you do read the notes a few may have pretty shitty…
