films about lgbt people but where the main plot isn’t about them being lgbt

An updated list of the original ''films about gay people but where the main plot isn’t about them being gay'' created by ingrid

original: letterboxd.com/ingridwillum/list/films-about-gay-people-but-where-the-main/

''these movies are supposed to be about lgbt people, but where the main plot isn’t about their relationship, them coming out or accepting themselves etc. i literally just want to see movies where lgbt people just exist and do stuff like rob a bank, fight with their mother, find out they have supernatural powers, investigate a murder or SOMETHING''

Thank you, Indrig, for the initiative, we needed to.
