LGBT+ Movies Y’all Should Check

Alright, so here’s my list of LGBT+ movies, which is by no means comprehensive and all-representational, but is based on what I’ve seen and what’s been recommended. 

Like @dramatic-koala, I’m gonna * the one’s I really liked and/or have heard really good things about and I’ll follow each title with title (representation) (genre) (country of release/movie setting). I’ll also denote if I think it’s particularly concerned with identity-exploration or if the main characters include people of color. I haven’t seem ‘em all, so I’m half-guessing some of the representations~
