Gay Women in Film

A comprehensive list of every film I have seen with one or more canon lesbian, bisexual, or pansexual women. This list is ranked primarily by my own personal preference, with some consideration given to the amount and nature of gay rep. YMMV.

The notes for each entry give content warnings and a brief description of the amount of gay content in each film. This is a comprehensive list, not a rec list, and includes the good and the bad both in terms of quality and representation.
