LGBT stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender. Every year, the month of June is celebrated as Pride Month in the United States of America. You must be wondering why LGBTQ is celebrated in June? Pride month occurs in the USA to commemorate the stonewall riots that occurred at the end of June month, 1969, resulting in many pride events happening this month to recognize the impact of LGBT people. Also, three US presidents have officially declared June a pride month to celebrate.
On the occasion of Pride month, let’s revisit some of the most influential films about LGBTQIA+ of all time. The films are best to watch to celebrate love and spread compassion all around. Personally, Price month is the best time of the year to watch these movies. You will witness how far ideas can go to represent LGBTQ in storytelling. Not only will you experience liberated love, but also drama, comedy, documentary, and also historical romance filled with longing for love. Some are too sexy to handle, some represent sadness too, but some are worth inspiring the LGBTQ community.
