I surveyed my Facebook page and have compiled a list of everyone’s favorite lesbian, gay and LGBTQ themed films and musicals and what they’re about. Some are YouTube videos and some are new films or documentaries which you can rent now for streaming online or buy and download. (I am updating this list regularly so check back again soon for more titles).

To Each Her Own
A Perfect Ending
This wonderful lesbian drama tells the tale of an undocumented Mexican nanny, Margarita (Nicola Correia Damude, Havanna 57) whose girlfriend Jane (Christine Horne, Tru Love) is reluctant to commit and whose yuppie employers – including a bi-curious Mom – are about to let her go. Margarita is a charming film co-starring a gorgeous pair of actresses (with terrific on-screen chemistry) and is the latest feature from lesbian co-directors Laurie Colbert and Dominique Cardona who brought us the fabulous 2007 drama Finn’s Girl. “Heartwarming, thought provoking, sexy!” – Curve Magazine
To Each Her Own
Jess meets Casey, a very openly gay woman and quickly the girls form a strong romantic bond which forces Jess to come to terms with her true sexuality. Jess is captivated by Casey’s lifestyle; meeting Casey’s friends and accepting family sends Jess’ life spinning out of control. She does not know what to do as she falls deeper in love with Casey and risks losing her loyal and kind-hearted husband. Casey’s life is turned upside down as well; having been a very promiscuous woman and never feeling that true love was really her thing, until now! Ultimately Jess is forced to choose between Casey and Trevor. Risking stability, her family and all that she knows for the great unknown and her new found love. “To Each Her Own” goes deep into the feelings and emotions that people go through while undergoing the coming out process, in hopes of helping people understand how truly hard the struggle can be with both internalized and external homophobia.
A Perfect Ending
This opposites-attract, edge-of-your-seat lesbian romance is a glossy, sexy and fun romantic drama from veteran writer-director Nicole Conn (Elena Undone, Claire of the Moon). She’s elegant, wealthy and proper; an upstanding wife and mother with three grown up children, a swanky estate and a horrible husband. But when Rebecca confesses to her friends about her unsatisfactory love life, they set her up with an exceptionally talented high-class call girl named Paris and, needless to say, the lives of both Rebecca and Paris are changed forever. Filled to the brink with aching desire, the sexual chemistry is off the charts.
The interplay of sexual tension between four very different women is at the center of this lush and languid drama set against the backdrop of a beautiful chain of lakes over a glorious long weekend. Tough and independent Rosa (Nele Rosetz) is a professional fisherwoman and guardian of the lake. Her high-powered architect lover Kirsten (Therese Haemer) lives in a fancy lakeside cottage where the couple unexpectedly play host to young lesbian couple, Evi (Lea Draeger) and Olivia (Constanze Wächter). Uncertainty evolves as attractions shift — while the rustic beauty of the lake presides. “Rife with playful flirting and stolen kisses.” — Sound on Sight
