6 thoughts on “What Are The Best LGBTQ+ Films on Netflix UK Right Now? (6th June 2019)

  1. Why do we need to have LGBTQ+ films, why not just call them films. It’s like putting the best heterosexual films before everything. There really isn’t a need to label everything.

  2. It must have been hard to categorise seeing as every Netflix series and film has an LGBT character/plot line. I’d get sick of seeing an aspect of my personality constantly referenced like this

  3. Because some people like watching movies about that topic? That’s like saying why do we need to have horror films, or war movies, or romance movies, why not just call them movies.

    Also… Most movies are heterosexual movies Malcolm. You just sound silly.
