12 LGBTQ FILMS TO WATCH ON NETFLIX NOW

As the days start to get cooler and darker, I find myself slowly morphing into a couch potato again. I decided to put together a list of LGBTQ films on Netflix that I've been meaning to watch, or rewatch, in some cases. I figured I would share it incase there are other slowly forming couch potatoes out there. Get cozy, enjoy and please feel free to share your favourite queer movies in the comments below.

In an English class taught by Simone Bradley (Diane Gaidry), Annabelle quickly shocks both teacher and fellow students with salacious interpretations of the curriculum. Simone is drawn to her unruly student, defending her from headmistress Mother Immaculata (Ilene Graff). As they grow closer, Simone realizes she has sexual feelings for Annabelle.
