LBGTQ Movies HELP???

ReinbowGrl's picture

So I'm the president of the GSA at my school and I need some advice. We're going to have movie nights occasionally and I was just wondering if anybody had any suggestions of good LGBTQ movies that are school appropriate. Being school safe isn't really necassary, but I don't want something like scripted, verbal porn... :) THANKS!

Crap, I can't remember but there is also this good one about a trans-man living in Nebraska. Seems mid '90's. Lot's of indie films have lots of diversity.

'My Beautiful Laundrette'. I really like this film.

Also 'My Summer of Love', although you might lose patience with the end.

I don't know how appropriate school appropriate means, but I'd think these would be ok.

"Edge of Seventeen" It's

"Edge of Seventeen"
It's about highschool/college kids, so that makes it good for highschool GSA, though I'm sure it doesn't matter. Good movie, nonetheless.
