Pride 2022: Celebrating Queer Cinema

Happy Pride, everyone! ♥

It's the time of the year where we celebrate Pride (with film)! Finally watch the gay films we've wanted to see for a long time, stumble upon previously unheard of films, dive deeper into queer cinema, learn more about queer history, watch more by queer directors, find new things to love that represent and channel parts of the whole beautiful spectrum of the queer experience!

This list is an open invitation for anyone to join in on the fun, work off from and/or make their own list, find new watching inspirations and get a small window into how many films dealing with or featuring queer experiences there actually are!
