5 Movies you can stream now and learn about gay rights

In this post below, we will be discussing a few movies which have the most accurate representation of gays in the LGBTQ+ community.

Movies are getting more progressive day by day, and we are not complaining. We absolutely love this new representation, whether you talk about color, culture, or exploring new sexualities.

Finally, there are movies that are stepping away from feeding the ‘straight white privilege’ and getting more into the working of becoming politically correct and making everyone feel related and connected.

Now, when we are talking about exploration within sexualities, it is not something that most filmmakers are getting into. But, there are a bunch, and we are all supporting them. 

In this post, we will be discussing a few movies which have the most accurate representation of gays in the LGBTQ+ community.

These are handpicked by experts themselves and are known to make many feel relatable to their situation and appreciate the art more. There is no such thing as bad representation, but there is such a thing as feeding too much to the stereotypes.

Movies To Learn About Gay Rights

These are some of the best-handpicked movies which can help you learn about gay rights.

1. Call Me By Your Name [2017]

Depicted from the renowned novel with the same name, this movie has Italy and two young men in the prime of their lives, exploring through the unknown woods of love. 

Join these two in their journey of finding unexplored love and life-defining memories which shaped the way they looked at the world. 

2. Blue Is The Warmest Color [2013]

If you ask anyone from the LGBTQ+ community, they will say that Blue Is The Warmest Color is the ultimate coming-of-age movie. It is about a woman named Adele and her exploration into this foreign world of different love when she falls for Emm, an unconventional blue-haired girl.

From thinking that a girl must only love a boy to this totally wild scenario will totally allow you to dive deeper into the world of ‘forbidden love.’

3. Carol [2015]

A depiction of lesbian love for the time when sodomy has just become a misdemeanor from a crime. Forget about same-sex marriage rights, as it was totally frowned upon. And yet, Therese found herself charmed by her older customer Carol, and the rest is history.

4. Brokeback Mountain [2005]

This is another masterpiece that got its most deserved Oscar. It is one of the best movies representing the same-sex dilemma, and it is also the first feature film released openly discussing this subject.

Two men struggle through the deadly shame of being openly gay in the country. Through this movie, you also get to learn a lot about the struggles and hardships of the LGBTQ+ community.

5. The State Of Marriage [2015]

You did not think we would end this list without this amazing documentary. The story revolves around Mary Boanouto, who partnered with two lawyers, Beth Robinson & Susan Murray, from a small town in Vermont. It showcases the two-year-long struggle which gave Vermont its first LGBTQ+ rights.

The Shades Of Rainbow!

Do you know why the LGBTQ+ community is represented by the rainbow. It is because they are unique and colorful. Plus, their love is like miracles after heavy rain. They understand the struggles of loving someone and that love is not being accepted. Maybe these movies will be an eye-opener for many.
