Carol (2015)

The forbidden love story at the heart of 2015 drama Carol is as beguiling as they come and it’s not surprising that the film was voted the number one LGBT film of all time at the BFI Flare festival a few years ago. Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara both shine in the period drama, which shines a light on attitudes towards gay relationships in 1950s New York.

River Phoenix gives one of the most memorable performances of his tragically short career in 1991’s My Own Private Idaho, playing a gay hustler and prostitute suffering with narcolepsy who falls for Keanu Reeves’ conman Scott Favor. It has to go on record as one of the most significant LGBT films of the decade, which takes a closer look at those on the margins of society.

The first half of this 2004 drama focuses on the fledgling romance between a Thai soldier and a young boy, before the film flips in surreal style to focus on a man entering deep into the Thai jungle to recover a lost boy. Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s movie is bizarre, baffling and yet somehow all the more affecting as a result.

Pride (2014)

British underdog stories don’t get much more inspiring than Pride, which focuses on the members of London's LGBT community who pledge their support for the striking Welsh miners in 1984. It’s become a cliche to describe British films like this one as ‘feel-good’, but no movie is more deserving of the description than Pride.

Colin Firth delivers an Oscar-nominated performance as an English professor in the grips of depression after losing his partner of 16 years in this adaptation of the Christopher Isherwood novel. While many LGBT classics centre around coming-of-age stories, Tom Ford’s directorial debut takes a thought-provoking look at long term LGBT relationships and living with loss in middle age.

Weekend (2011)

What starts as a fling escalates into something much more meaningful in this 2011 British indie drama, which has found a cult audience in the years following its release. British newcomers Tom Cullen and Chris New star as two men who meet shortly before one is due to leave the country, falling for each other in the most inconvenient of circumstances.

The tentative romance at the heart of Call Me By Your Name is one of the most moving and convincing coming-of-age LGBT love stories Hollywood has produced in the last 10 years. Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer both deliver timeless performances and the pair’s love story is as intoxicating as the heat of the woozy Italian summer it’s set against.

Starring Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, Brokeback Mountain proved a landmark moment in cinematic history when it came out in 2005 as one of the first major LGBT movies to prove a big success at the box office, with worldwide takings of $178m. It was a scandal that the movie missed out on the Best Picture to Crash at the Oscars.
