This is a (non-exhaustive) list of movies that feature lesbian, bisexual, or queer women. I've tried to focus on movies that have explicitly queer women but have included some titles where the subtext has been considered noteworthy. Movies focused on trans men or straight trans women will not be included. I made this list for my own reference but decided to make it public in case someone else wants to dive into lesbian cinema.

Please note that this is not intended to be a list of good lesbian films. A significant percentage of the movies are bad, contain harmful stereotypes, or are otherwise a poor representation of the community. If you don't want to waste time on those films I suggest you look to one of the other lesbian-related lists on this site.
