Join Valerie, Drew, and Carmen as they geek out about Ryan Murphy’s Netflix adaptation of The Prom.
Sex is weird, and this movie leans into that without pretending to have all the answers.
We got superhero movies! Teen comedies! Christmas movies! Oscar bait! Musicals!!!!
“That’s my whole junior high experience: No, I don’t want to be friends with you. I actually want to have sex with you.”
December on HBO Max, Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime has everything: Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, a Euphoria special, troubled girls stranded on a desert island and so much more.
“I don’t know what’s gayer: the outfit itself or the fact that Vivian remembers it in such specific detail 19 years later.”
“In conclusion, Aubrey Plaza is a precious gem and I would die for her.”
I won’t lie, I went into this trailer with low expectations, but by the time Keegan-Michael Key said, “Okay, I admit, that got to me” I was feeling the exact same way.
So, in this movie with THREE Vanessa Hudgenses, there’s a Mockneck Mommi and a Bi Cottage Core Sub, but still not actual switches???
When you’re done watching “The Happiest Season” three times, what comes next? Which are the best lesbian movies on Hulu? Good news: we’ve got LGBTQ+ movies streaming on Hulu for all your needs related to women gazing into the eyeballs of other women!
Things I didn’t know about Gia but learned quickly: this movie is very fucking sad, Mila Kunis plays Young Gia, Adina Porter makes a brief appearance, ELIZABETH MITCHELL plays Gia’s love interest, and Gia’s female love interest was not a brief drug-fueled lesbian fling!
“People were always so impressed that you didn’t leave me, but your gift wasn’t staying — it was seeing. Most people don’t get to transition under the pansexual gaze of someone who loves them the way you loved me.”
I originally added this movie to my queue because, well, It was black. I love black people, I adore Christmas and I wanted to check out and support black films and who knows, maybe I would find a new classic. I started watching and quickly realized that not only did it feature a mostly POC cast — IT WAS QUEER!
I love Christmas. I love having a guardian gayngel. And even when the movie is not great, I love a queer Afro-Latina in New York getting her very own Gay Christmas Love Story.
Clea DuVall manages a real Christmas miracle in Happiest Season by capturing the distinctly queer and quietly heart-wrenching experience of not being able to share your real self with the people you love most, when all you want to do is shout from the tallest chimney in town that you’ve found your person, that you’re in love.
Much to my chagrin, this did not turn out to be a movie about Vanessa Hudgens and Vanessa Hudgens taking turns topping each other.
“If you could be anywhere in the world, where would you be?”
“Littlefoot, in true queer fashion, has a lot of mommy issues. (This, of course, is a common theme in other popular lesbian movies such as Carol and Frozen 2.)”
HBO Max has queer women all over its impressive slate of films, including biopics like Bessie and Gia; documentaries about DADT and Billie Jean King; and lesbian classics like Desert Hearts.
In February, I found myself sitting in a folding chair in a country club just outside of Pittsburgh, directly across from Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis.
The girls are so scared of the realities they’ve been given that their fantasy — murder and all — feels like the only choice. They don’t know yet that there’s a whole world of creative queer people out there.
