Lesbian & Bisexual Women

by Sanguine_Marble | created - 30 Jun 2013 | updated - 01 Jul 2013 | Public

I tried to focus on films with lead characters that are Lesbian or Bisexual. I have not included Boys Don't Cry, since I think Brandon Teena would have identified as Transgender rather than as Lesbian. Little Tidbit: I have an M.A. in Media Studies, so I tried to also include films that are less known.
