Esquire's 50 Best LGBT Movies Ever Made

"Here, in honor of LGBT Pride Month, we rank the 50 best feature films about queer people. These are films that took major risks and attempted to 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."
