gay film
For most people, movies give us access to experiences and characters beyond our own reality, enhancing our view of the world and the human experience. Movies have a powerful effect on our lives, and this is especially true for LGBTQ people, many of whom grow up only seeing themselves reflected back at them on-screen in gay films. A trip to the local megaplex or browsing queer-themed titles on streaming services give LGBTQ youth the chance to connect with gay characters and their stories.
