It is super rare to see LGBTQ actors cast in LGBTQ roles in movies (esp. the big ones like Carol, Brokeback Mountain and Moonlight). With that in mind, I set out to make a list of movies which feature queer actors who have been given the all-too-rare opportunity to play queer characters. Actor/character listed in the notes. I'm not omniscient, so additions are very welcome!
Note: At this point I'm counting bisexual/pansexual actors who play gay/lesbian characters, and vice versa. I'm NOT counting queer cis actors in trans roles. Those roles belong to trans people and I'm not interested in signal boosting those movies or giving them a pat on the back.
