When it comes to positive (and varied) mainstream depictions of queer characters and storylines, Hollywood still has a long way to go. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t incredible queer classics — in fact, this list is just a sliver of the myriad tales LGBTQ+ storytellers have put forth on the big screen. From campy cult classics and happy-ending rom-coms to period pieces and sci-fi hits, queer stories are limitless. Tune into these must-watch films this Pride Month — and all year long — to see how queer filmmakers are moving the dial just by telling stories that are influenced by their own lived experiences.
