Queer Movie Recs

Image text reads, "Queer Movie Recs Curated from the suggestions of actual queer people"

I regularly get asked for queer media recommendations, so in this year's Pridepalooza survey, I asked participants to share some of their favorites. Last up is queer movie recommendations

The list below is the result of all of the wonderful suggestions from survey participants (who all identify as queer), plus some additions from suggestions on social media.

Quick disclaimer: These queer movie recommendations come from responses to this year's Pridepalooza Survey and are listed in no particular order. I have not watched many of these films, and it's not possible for me to independently verify what makes these films queer and who they may or may not be suitable for. I hate that I even have to say this, but it's the internet, so: please do your own research to determine which movies are best for your own taste and give me the benefit of the doubt when it comes to these recommendations.

Now that that's out of the way, let's get into it!
