1. Imagine Me & You (2005)

Votes: 25,354 | Gross: $0.67M
I like this mainly because it's british but also because I think Lena Headey and Piper Perabo are two very, VERY hot women. They fit well together. Super cute! 6/6.
2. Coronation Street (1960– )
TV-PG | 30 min | Drama, Romance
The UK's longest-running television soap, Coronation Street focuses on the everyday lives of working class people in Manchester, England.
Some might think it's weird that this show is in this list, but there is actually a lesbian storyline here. Very recently. Sian and Sophie might be the cutest couple I've ever seen on TV. And the fact that their both hot as heat doesn't hurt. It doesn't run on TV anywhere but britain though I think, but lots of scenes on youtube! 5/6.
3. Saving Face (2004)
R | 91 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A Chinese-American lesbian and her traditionalist mother are reluctant to go public with secret loves that clash against cultural expectations.
Votes: 8,374 | Gross: $1.19M
After this movie, I really started to get a thing for Asian people. I don't know why. Great movie! 4/6

A very strong story. A movie that will definitively get your brain pumping!... and some tears running. 5/6
6. Bloomington (2010)
Not Rated | 83 min | Drama
"Bloomington" is a coming-of-age drama about a former child actress attending college in search of independence and who ends up becoming romantically involved with a female professor.
It's a little confusing to watch, because the story might be going a little fast in the turns but I think that's the one doing the cuts and paste of the clips and scenes in the movie. But all in all you get what the story tells you. Exciting! 4/6
7. Boys Don't Cry (1999)
R | 118 min | Biography, Crime, Drama

Funny! Can't really get my head around how places like that actually exist. 4/6.
9. Gray Matters (I) (2006)
PG-13 | 96 min | Comedy, Romance
They finish each other's sentences, dance like Fred and Ginger, and share the same downtown loft--the perfect couple? Not exactly.

TV-MA | 50 min | Drama, Romance
Follows the lives and loves of a small, close-knit group of lesbians living in Los Angeles as well as the friends and family members that either support or loathe them.
You knew this was coming, huh? What lesbian haven't watched The L Word? My favorites: DANA, BETTE & CARMEN. Mostly Bette. Hope the world will soon realise that we need another show like this. 5/6.

14. South of Nowhere (2005–2008)
A family moves from Ohio to Los Angeles, where they find themselves unprepared for the city's fast pace, and the overcrowded public school that their three teenagers will attend.
Mandy Musgrave = incredibly hot! Gabby Christian = cute as HELL! It truly is a beautiful story. 5/6

Swedish movie. It's good if you think about how old it is and that it's from Sweden. Then again, Gia was made the same year and is so much better. I guess I just like the story. And Aleksandra Dahlstrom(the blonde). 4/6

Funny, hot and heart warming. One of the first lesbian movies I ever watched. It was a big part of finding out what I was and has some personal meaning to me(might be clouding my judgement). 5/6.

TV-MA | 46 min | Drama
The story of a group of British teens who are trying to grow up and find love and happiness despite questionable parenting and teachers who more want to be friends (and lovers) rather than authority figures.
Season 1 and 2 are crap, but season 3 and 4 we have Naomi and Emily! Go Naomily!(right?) Very cute. 5/6

There's not exactly a lesbian storyline YET, but we've had moments between Santana and Brittney, right? Let's hope for more! But lesbians or not, this is a good show either way! And we have gay Kurt. He's fun to watch. The enire show: 6/6 Santana/Brittney: 3/6(because there hasn't really been much of it yet)
