Celebrating Pride Month: 5 LGBTQ Films With Happy Endings

 

We showed a little love to LBGTQ books, but what about films? From movies, to TV episodes, to shorts, here’s a small list we’ve compiled with flicks worth mentioning.


Black Mirror’ [S3E4] “San Junipero” (2016)

This Black Mirror episode, San Junipero, offered a fresh take on their usually ‘unhappy’ endings. Sure, its still riddled with the mind-bending twists and turns, but it evolves into a truly beautiful love story.

‘The Way He Looks’ (2014)

The Way He Looks follows the life of a boy who is visually impaired. It’s a wonderful story about love, self-discovery, and navigating the real world with an impairment.

‘In A Heartbeat’ (Short Film)

While In A Heartbeat is a short film, it leaves a long-lasting impression. I can honestly say that this one of the sweetest short animations I’ve seen in a long time.

‘Love, Simon’ (2018)

When it comes to the struggle of sexual identity, ‘Love, Simon’ portrayed it really well. This was a relatable movie about family, friends, and the truths that we fight to keep hidden from them; and sometimes ourselves.

 

‘Boy Meets Girl’ (2014)

This film deserves a spot on our list for two reasons: one, because its great, and two, because its one of the only movies of its kind. Boy Meets Girl is an uplifting story about a transgender woman and it actually rewards us with a happy ending.

    I thought the “San Junipero” episode was the best episode of the series. Love Black Mirror, Love San Junipero.

      I agree. Black Mirror alone is incredible, but San Junipero really left you with a genuine ‘feel good’ kind of warmth.
