During the month of June we celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month, commemorating the 1969 Stonewall uprisings, a pinnacle event of the gay liberation movement. Celebrate Pride by checking out LGBTQ+ movies you can stream through the U-M Library. 

Watch American director Gus Van Sant’s first film Mala Noche or explore New Queer Cinema of the early 90s with films by Todd Haynes, Derek Jarman, and Gregg Araki. Contemporary American movies include Love, Simon, Naz & Maalik, and The Miseducation of Cameron Post

Also check out the array of foreign films available centered on LGBTQ+ storylines. See the French Ma Vie en Rose, the Mexican film Rabiso Sol, Rabioso Cielo, Japan’s Funeral Parade of Roses, and the British film God’s Own Country, just to name a few.  

This spreadsheet includes links to accessing the films noted above and more.
