This is a list of my top favorite movies, series, and documentaries with gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender content. Some of the earlier films may not have overt content, but I feel they are significant in queer film history nonetheless. I used to manage my local GLBT bookstore before it closed, and now work at an independent video rental store.

I have more complete lists posted in my Letterboxd account (http://letterboxd.com/erikswallow/).
