Whether it’s modern classics like The Birdcage and In & Out, high-quality independent films like Weekend and Keep the Lights On, or top-notch documentaries like We Were Here and Paris is Burning, this list of the best gay movies on Netflix has everything from serious, heartfelt emotion to roll-around-on-the-floor laughter.

The best homosexual movies on Netflix includes unmissable films, such as Parting Glances, which was one of the earliest films to take a hard, blunt look at the AIDS crisis (it also starred a young Steve Buscemi).  Also included are Christopher Plummer's Oscar-winning performance in Beginners, as well as the quirky cult classic Sordid Lives.

 Of special note in this list are the films having to do with Christopher Isherwood: A Single Man and Christopher and His KindA Single Man is the film adaptation of Isherwood's 1964 brilliant classic by the same name, but Christoper and His Kind is biopic based off of his own autobiography, and delves deep into the work that inspired the Broadway musical hit, Cabaret.

Netflix has a wide variety of queer movies, many of which have become timeless classics. Vote up the best gay genre films on this list, and let us know what you think in the comment section below.
