At last, TV and cinema is getting the LGBTQ+ treatment. The OTT one-dimensional gay best friend is slowly but surely becoming a thing of the past and writers are starting to realize that there is so, so much more that can be done with LGBTQ+ characters.
Here are the Entertainment For Us LGBTQ+ approved movies of the last decade. We missed Bohemian Rhapsody on purpose.
Pride is one of the most uplifting and emotional LGBTQ+ films to come out of the UK. It’s based on a true story and is an essential part of UK culture.
Wild and tender at the same time, Tangerine is a must-watch for those who find themselves wanting to learn more about transgender subculture.
Blue Is The Warmest Color
Incredible performances from the leading ladies and a script that has even the hardest of hearts in tears by the end.
Finally, a coming-of-age teen movie where the protagonist is a gay man and not the flamboyant best friend.
Rocket Man gets everything right that Bohemian Rhapsody got wrong. It is a true celebration of Elton John and LGBTQ+ pride.
A beautiful romance of true love with complicated consequences.
Looking: The Movie
Another hidden gem on Amazon Prime. If you liked the series, you’ll love the movie.
A lesbian romance between a carer and a wrestler. It’s quirky, eccentric and LGBTQ+ heaven.
There’s pride, murder and X rated movies, what’s not to love? A bold and raunchy film set in the summer of 1979.
God’s Own Country
A drama romance for those days when we feel like we are running round in circles with no chance of things getting any better.
