The 25 Best Lesbian Movies

A while ago I watched Imagine Me And You and it gave me this stupid ass grin. I wore that stupid ass grin when I jumped out of the closet and I still wear it when I kiss my girlfriend.

These are just a few other titles which helped me realize I wasn't broken. It may seem stupid to some of you but if you escape for just a short ninety minutes with a movie that's telling the world that it's okay, you don't feel so bad.

I hope you guys enjoy this and I hope it makes all you closeted women out there realize that the closet ain't really a good place. It's lonely, cold and full of old cleaning equipment. Most of all though, you can only fit one person in there.
