Bridget taking her hat off before playing soccer in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was a MOMENT.

We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us what movie or TV show moments helped them realize they're queer. Here's what they had to say:

1. In Cruel Intentions, when Kathryn taught Cecile how to kiss someone the *right* way.

2. In Hercules, when Hercules first met Meg by the water and left him speechless, just like the rest of us.

3. In Not Another Teen Movie, when Jake tried to seduce Laney by wearing nothing but whipped cream.

4. In The Mummy, when Rick and Evelyn shared this sweet and passionate kiss at the end of the movie.

5. In Suicide Squad, when Harley Quinn went partying at a club with the Joker and danced sensually.
