What Films Best Represent The Experiences Of LGBT People?

Because accurate portrayals of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues are important.

Films about LGBT experiences have played a significant role in the community.

From helping teenagers come to terms with their sexuality in Beautiful Thing...

...to covering a range of comprehensive issues such as homophobia and AIDS in Longtime Companion.

Some films have helped to break down the stigma surrounding same-sex relationships.

For example, Brokeback Mountain was groundbreaking in its portrayal of the romance between two male cowboys forced to deny their feelings for one another.

Whereas The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert not only entertained, but paved the way for more mainstream and positive representations of LGBT people.

Or there's films like Carol which tell the most beautiful love story.
