MY BEAUTIFUL LAUNDRETTE (1985)

Daniel Day-Lewis had his first starring role in this low-key 1980s British LGBT romance.

THE WATERMELON WOMAN (1996)

Considered the first feature from an African-American lesbian, I found it enjoyable and interesting. Not everyone agreed at the time.

SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959)

I had, um, some issues with this comedy about cross-dressing and/or dudes that want to sleep with Marilyn Monroe.

MADCHEN IN UNIFORM (1931)

Maybe the first feature film dealing with themes of homosexuality, it feels surprisingly fresh today.
