Best Of: Female-Led LGBTQ+ Films
June is now nearly over, which means it's about time for the concluding installment of my Pride celebration: a listing of my favorite queer films with female leads. This list was a bit tougher to compile than the last one, because I just haven't seen as many female-led films in this genre; in fact, a couple ladies on this list are supporting characters rather than the leads. In spite of this, all of the cinematic women on this list really are wonderful and deserving of the spotlight during this important month. So here we go!
|11. Chasing Amy (1997)|
|10. Election (1999)|
|9. Laurence Anyways (2012)|
|8. Mulholland Drive (2001)|
|7. The Hunger (1983)|
|6. But I'm a Cheerleader (1999)|
|5. Bound (1996)|
|4. Carol (2015)|
|3. Fried Green Tomatoes (1991)|
|2. Blue is the Warmest Color (2013)|
|1. The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994)|
So there you have it, a complete run-down of my 22 favorite LGBTQ+ films. Pride month may be just about over, but its never the wrong month to celebrate diversity and being true to yourself--so stay proud, and keep watching and supporting all the great queer films out there for every month to come.
