The Birdcage is pretty stereotypical, but it's funny. If you speak French, it's interesting to watch the original (La Cage Aux Folles.) Before moving to the middle-east, I went to a fairly progressive high school, and we did a musical production of the Broadway show! I know I'm biased, but it's a good watch. For series, I'd recommend Everything Sucks! on Netflix and the Handmaid's Tale on Hulu. The Handmaid's Tale doesn't have a direct focus on the LGBT community, but it includes some characters (two so far) in it who aren't straight. It's based off of Margaret Atwood's novel and is an eerily realistic dystopian story of the future of the USA. Everything Sucks! is a heartwarming story about love, friendship, family, and sexuality in the 90's. It's short and sweet, especially since season 2 was cancelled, but it's definitely worth watching. The Color Purple is also really good (and intense.) If you're ready for a sad and heavy movie with a happy-ish ending, I think you can watch it on Netflix and Amazon (don't @ me!) Like the Handmaid's Tale, it's also based on a book. Also, anyone know where to watch Love, Simon online? I've heard great things about it and would love to see it, but it's been rejected by cinemas in my country due to its homosexual content (homosexuality = illegal). Thanks!!
