LGBTQ+

Films I've seen with LGBTQ+ characters/content. Some of the older films are more coded, of course, but they feel like they should be here. (I probably have more to add on that side of things but...one day!)

Some were added because I saw them on other lists, even though I barely remember the movies, so I'm not 100% sure of the content.

Currently organised by release date.

I decided to leave off the I & A for now as I've not seen any films with canonically intersex or asexual characters and it really bugs me when people are like 'here's a list of LGBTQIA stuff' but there's never any intersex and/or asexual content. (And any subtext, especially asexual, rarely feels like it's intentional, so don't really fit with my adding coded films?)

My watchlist is here.
