The importance of representation cannot be downplayed. By watching films we are introduced to experiences different to our own. It creates empathy and understanding – a connection between yourself and other people, while also helping us understand ourselves.

That’s why, in the last few years, it’s been exciting to see an increase in quality LGBT+ cinema that truly represents different facets of the queer experience. Here’s my top 10 LGBTQ+ movies:

  • Paris is burning (1990)
  • Happy Together (1997)
  • Boys Don’t Cry (1999)
  • Brokeback Mountain (2005)
  • Tomboy (2011)
  • Blue is the Warmest Colour (2013)
  • Carol (2015)
  • Moonlight (2016)
  • Call Me By Your Name (2017)
  • A Fantastic Woman (2018)

Have you watched any of the list yet?
