Best Classic Era LGBT-Related Movies (1910s – 1970s)
Here is a list of the highest-rated vintage LGBT-related movies on IMDB. For most of the XXth century, LGBT content was censored in film which meant that queer characters were insinuated to be queer and not explicitly mentioned as such.
Another trend was presenting same-sex attraction as a “fate worse than death,” although that would slowly change with the fall of the studio system in Hollywood and with the Gay Liberation movement gaining ground in the late 1960s.
Which of these gay movies from the Golden Era of Hollywood or European Cinema is your favorite? From “Rebel Without a Cause” to “A Special Day,” there is plenty of good cinema to choose from.
