16 Great LGBTQ Movies to Stream

by Jourdain Searles

Times are rough right now under self-quarantine, so maybe it’s time to stop begging for scraps from Disney and watch some fantastic LGBTQIA+ cinema instead. Why not watch some smaller films that haven’t been talked to death by every pop culture website on the planet?

The purpose of this list is to cheer people up, especially during a time when people really can’t go out and decompress. All we can do right now is curl up under our blankets with a libation or two and try to forget our troubles by streaming movies nonstop.

Queer cinema is not a monolith, but I do prefer to prioritize the films that depict queer life as it is. This is…

  • Moonlight
  • Concussion
  • Paris Is Burning
  • Tangerine
  • Princess Cyd
  • Kiki
  • Naz & Maalik
  • Can You Ever Forgive Me?
  • Bessie
  • But I'm a Cheerleader
  • Carol
  • Appropriate Behavior
  • Keep the Lights On
  • The Watermelon Woman
  • Suicide Kale
  • Happy Birthday, Marsha!
