The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert – Three transgender performers well known for their lavish costumes and lip-synching in Sydney travel across the Australian Outback in their ramshackle bus, “Priscilla,” on their way to a gig at a casino.

Angels in America – New York City, 1985. A gay couple’s relationship is rocked by the revelation that one has AIDS; a young man named Joe Pitts is offered a job by conservative icon Roy Cohn–who also learns he has AIDS.

Before Night Falls – Javier Bardem stars as Cuban writer Reinaldo Arenas, whose political views and homosexuality landed him in jail under Castro’s repressive regime.

But I’m a Cheerleader – When her parents suspect that she’s a lesbian, a high-school student (Natasha Lyonne) is sent to a sexual-rehabilitation camp.

Deep in Vogue – Deep in Vogue celebrates the colorful, queer, emotional and political stories of Northern Vogue and its people. Synonymous with the black, gay ballrooms of 1980s New York this documentary asks why we need Vogue in Manchester now more than ever.

Do I Sound Gay? – A look at the stereotype of the “gay voice” examines its connotations in modern society.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post – Cameron, a high-school track athlete, is forced to attend a Christian gay conversion therapy center after her legal guardian discovers she is a lesbian. But Cameron finds camaraderie and solidarity with the other gay teens there and learns how to survive in an intolerant world.

Moon Manor – With advancing Alzheimer’s and a determination to do things his way, Jimmy’s decided to throw himself a fabulous FUNeral before his intentional death, showing his estranged brother, salt-of-the earth caretaker, sharp-witted death doula, a novice obituary writer, a cosmic being, and the guests at his FUNeral — that sometimes the art of living just may be the art of dying.

Moonlight – The tender, heartbreaking story of a young man’s struggle to find himself, told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love, while grappling with his own sexuality.

Stonewall – A gay runaway in the 1960s finds a sympathetic community at the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in Greenwich Village. In time, harassment from the police galvanizes his political conscience.

Suited – A look at a tailoring company in Brooklyn that provides custom attire for LGBTQ clients features profiles of the owners and the diverse community they serve.

Tell It To The Bees – A female doctor pursues a romantic relationship with the mother of her young patient in 1950s Britain. The latter is evicted from her rural home; they all risk social ostracization when the doctor allows the two of them to live with her and her bee colonies.

Wig: A New York Drag Story – This feature documentary offers a vibrant cultural history of drag and the annual outdoor festival that came to epitomize it: Wigstock. Drawing on unfiltered access to some of New York’s most famed drag artists – tenured veterans and talented newcomers alike – Wig follows legendary drag queen Lady Bunny as she aims to resurrect Wigstock for a new generation.

Woman on Fire – Woman on Fire follows Brooke Guinan, the first openly transgender firefighter in New York City. A character-driven documentary, the film follows Brooke as she sets out to challenge perceptions of what it means to be transgender in America today.
