In response to a tumblr post, I compiled a list of my favorite non-angsty queer films. Here it is!

  • Four More Years - conservative politician/liberal politician, super slashy feel (when I learned it was written & directed by a woman I realized that was probably a big factor in why I liked it so much)
  • Bear City - cub/glam bear, super sweet romcom
  • Plan B - straight guy / bi guy, fake-flirting-turned-real

  • D.E.B.S - secret agent / international jewel thief, my favorite movie of all time!!
  • Leading Ladies - established dancer / newbie dancer, cute!
  • The Sleeping Beauty of East Finchley - friendly nurse / shy singer, uplifting
  • Bloomington - professor/student, nice slashy vibe and geeky subplot
  • Who's Afraid of Vagina Wolf? - filmmaker/camera woman, lots of art feels
  • Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same - shop clerk/space alien, fun mash-up of indie film & 50s sci-fi

and more!
(films that aren't rom-coms but aren't serious dramas either)
  • Madame X - fantastic action flick featuring drag queen superheroes
  • Bite Marks - lo-fi vampire horror comedy featuring gay hitchhikers
  • The Baby Formula - fun premise! a lesbian couple try out an experimental technology to combine their genes but for reasons of plot they both end up pregnant at the same time!
  • Private Romeo - this is the angstiest one on the list (it's a Romeo & Juliet AU set in a military high school) but it's fantastic! and it's got a happy/hopeful ending so I'm including it anyway
  • Britney Baby One More Time - cross-dressing road trip shenanigans
  • Yes Nurse No Nurse - gorgeously camp remake of a children's show
  • Wu Yen - Hong Kong period comedy starring three female actresses as: the warrior princess, the emperor who loves her, and the gender-switching fairy spirit who tries to seduce them both!
