LGBTQ+ History on the Screen: Impactful Queer Moments and Figures in Movies and TV
LGBTQ+ people have long fought to be seen authentically in the media. And while it took decades for media creators to include overt lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer identities in their stories, these communities have long rallied around entertainment and characters that reflect and support their experiences and histories. Below you'll find movies and TV shows that highlight important moments and people across the LGBTQ+ spectrum. Choose from documentaries about the struggle for equal rights and acceptance, thoughtful biopics about prominent celebrities and activists, shows that made history themselves by including meaningful representation, and more. When you're done, check out our lists featuring LGBTQ+ youth in books and movies and TV.
