    Ever since I joined this place I have been thinking about girls a lot ^.^... saw a youtube clip of a guy coming on to another guy in another post. I want to watch more tv/movies with LGBT things going on...

    Keep in mind, I do not watch TV or movies very often... in fact not often at all... if you are going to name something I more than likley have never heard of it... no offense!:eusa_danc

    Are there any other themes you like? Comedy? Drama?
    My favorite is Latter Days (This was the first movie I saw, and it really just struck a chord with me). It's kind of has a bunch of different themes in it. There's comedy at parts. At other parts it's drama (it gets really emotional at one part). And lastly, there are really sexual moments :slight_smile:
    A TV show that I liked is Queer as Folk. There are really cute guys, although I kind of stopped watching after the first few seasons because it just started getting redundant. I might start up again later this summer though.

    There are really lots of different ones. Can you specify more what you want to see? Should it be focused on LGBT? Or just have LGBT characters? I'm sure if you try google you'll find many more as well. In fact, I know that afterelton has a list of their top 50 LGBT movies of all time.

    That is the problem, I dont have any "movie" types I watch. I read, cross stich, play games and work... kinda boring. However maybe its just cause I lost interest in the shows I was watching I Dont Know! >.<

    1. Prayers for Bobby (TV Movie) - It stars Sigourney Weaver - whom I lololove!
    2. Queer as Folk (TV Series, Ended with 5 Seasons) - A bit campy at times, but very cool! And lotsa hot naked guys.
    3. Love of Siam (Movie) - This one's Asian, though. I'm not sure if you're into that.
    4. Maurice (Movie)- It stars a young Hugh Grant.
    5. Basic Instinct (Hot Movie) - Not really an LGBT movie, but Sharon Stone makes out with another girl. I'm a gay guy, but that was hot!


    These have mainly guy-on-guy pairings, but there are lotsa movies out there with girl-on-girl pairings as well. If you're looking for ones with general LGBT themes -like what some said- it depends on what you're into (genre and all that). Hope this helped!

    Okay! just watched Latter Days... whoa! *cough* whoa! I wasnt expecting all the sex ^.-...

    But I loved the story. I am from SLC and have a bunch of family who go on a mission. I know there was a lot that they said that would not be said however, loved the other parts. I know a few guys who ended up gay. I dont believe it was from their mission but just who they were... kinda like this story.

    Okay love this movie, ill be watching it again :icon_bigg

    For tv shows, my favorite LGBT shows are

    1. South of Nowhere- A coming of age tv series about a girl, this is my favorite show of all time. :slight_smile:
    2. The L Word- A good show, kind of the lesbian equivalent to Queer as Folk so can be a bit risque.
    3. Tierra de Lobos- This is a Spanish soap opera (so it's in Spanish) that has a lesbian character. I only watched the parts with the lesbian character.

    For movies, my favorites are

    1. C.R.A.Z.Y. (a foreign film about a gay guy)
    2. Boys Don't Cry (a sad movie)
    3. But I'm a Cheerleader

    I like some other movies but I can't think of them right now. If I do I'll let you know~! :slight_smile:

    I know you said you're looking for some bisexual girl movies (most of the ones I listed above are girl movies) so here's a link to a list of movies that a gay/bisexual female website has come up with.

    You might want to try watching Gray's Anatomy, it has a couple of good Lesbian Characters from around the 3rd season onwards I think.

    Also Buffy The Vampire Slayer (Willow and Tara are like the most amazing couple ever, and I'm not even a lesbian)

    I really liked Skins (British version) with Naomi and Emily. And Pretty Little Liars is really good too.

    Yeah this is a sad film. Makes it even worse it is a true story and the real Brandon in the film was actually raped and murdered in 93 for being trans...
    But a really good and powerful film.
