LGBT movies on Netflix February 2020

Deal posted by on February 18, 2020

Updated on February 26, 2020

Netflix has a pretty wide selection of movies and tv shows, enough to keep you watching for hours at a time (or endlessly scrolling through recommendations looking for something to watch!). Maybe you’re just looking for a fun film to watch or for some Netflix-and-chill time, either way if you happen to be looking for an LGBT+ movie, Netflix has a few things you can stream. There aren’t a lot of LGBT+ films on Netflix (and this varies by country), but here is the current near-complete list!

Since Netflix is always refreshing their catalog of films, the list of available LGBT+ films you can stream is always changing so we keep this list of films up-to-date. Netflix is of course great for filming something to watch, and if you’re already paying the monthly subscription, the more movies you watch, the better a deal it is!
