While movies like "Brokeback Mountain" shattered boundaries for LGBTQ+ representation on the big screen, over the past several decades, depictions of LGBTQ+ stories have evolved significantly, with an ever-broadening range of stories and experiences taking the spotlight. In recent years, films like "Fire Island" and Billy Porter's directorial debut "Anything's Possible" have widened the scope of queer cinema, breaking new ground and constantly challenging stereotypes. Forthcoming movies like Billy Eichner's "Bros" and Harry Styles's "My Policeman" also promise to tell exciting new queer stories this fall, proving that the canon of queer cinema keeps growing.

The movies on this list run the gamut from beloved comedies like "But I'm a Cheerleader" to sweet romances like "Let It Snow" to heart-wrenching dramas like "Call Me By Your Name" and "Moonlight" to classic documentaries like "Paris Is Burning." There's something here for everyone. From Oscar winners and big-name hits to under-the-radar faves, we've rounded up some of the most notable LGBTQ+ movies we've seen.
