Gay movies, especially gay teen movies, still have not been perfected. For years, gay youth had to sit through low-budget, overly sexual films where the protagonist ends up depressed or dead due to their sexuality. Rarely do queer films end happily. Meanwhile, queer teens had to search the internet or before that, video stores to find obscure foreign films or grainy bootlegs of a bad gay comedy. The major studio release of Love, Simon , a light-hearted, fun teen comedy with a gay protagonist and a happy ending is a serious step in the right direction. But until then, there is a whole bunch of movies to keep you occupied.

The Internet is a place where LGBT individuals find a community; as such, streaming platforms like Netflix offer titles that depict the queer experience in a variety of ways. This is a collection of movies that, at the very least, express to its viewers that—no matter what end of sexual or gender spectrum in which they feel most comfortable—they are not alone.

The two set out on a road trip on which they consummate an unspoken passion for each other. Director Miguel Arteta co-wrote the screenplay for this comedy with Alia Shawkat, who stars as one half of a couple alongside Laia Costa that meets at a club and discovers intimacy through frequent sex.
