Finding LGBT films for GSA movie “nights” after school is proving hard.
Many LGBT films feature graphic-ish sex and/or nudity, so those are all out because this is a high school audience. I dance a very fine line with R rated films.
But even so many are rated R for language or just simply LGBT issues.
Right now, I have three that are PG-13:
- Philadelphia (our first film “night” is this)
- Too Wong Foo
Any other ideas?

- grumpyandgorgeous answered: Water Lilies! The Celluloid Closet! Before Stonewall. Beautiful Thing. Tomboy.
- southern-gothic answered: The Hours is excellent. The Celluloid Closet and Small Town Gay Bar are great if you want documentaries. :)

- platanosandprejudice said: In and Out is also a great one, Dorain Blues is alright, and I’ve never een/screened Big Eden but that’s PG-13 as well. Prayers for Bobby is great, but rather sad! When we screened it at my old GSA, everyone was upset at how depressing it was!
- percentile-perhaps answered: Another Country is a great film with a gay main character, and it’s rated PG. I really enjoyed it.
- platanosandprejudice answered: But I’m a Cheerleader and DEBS are great for high school GSAs, both PG-13.

- specialbunny answered: there are a lot of great documentatries out there. Maybe the Times of Harvey Milk? A netflix sweep will show some great LGBTQ docs.

- thelonestarteacher answered: I would suggest “Milk”, but I’m pretty sure it’s rated R. Plus, there’s a decent amount of violence in it.
- je-mappelle-catlady answered: Torch Song Trilogy, The Times of Harvey Milk, Broken Hearts Club, Longtime Companion, Big Eden, Red Doors, In & Out, or Maurice
