Official list of gay subtext in film

Very loosely ranked. The ones near the top are personal favorites of mine

I already have my honorary gay movies list but I made that before I really got serious about gay subtext so I mixed them together with movies that I claimed to be gay culture just by nature of the themes aesthetic etc.
SO I decided to make a dedicated list of actual gay subtext (characters/relationships) since people kept asking me for recs

Feel free to leave recs but I want to keep this as solely my own list of movies that have my stamp of approval since I can only trust myself with these things. gay subtext watchlist here though!
