5. Freak Show (2017)

No where near as great as the rest of the films in this list, but this movie about a transgender kid (a teenage transvestite who loves to dress up in glamorous women's clothing, like his over-dramatic mother) and his close friendship with his SBF (Straight Best Friend), is a pretty good movie about acceptance.

7/10 !!!!
