Films aimed at lesbian, bisexual and queer women have never exactly been noted for their universal excellence. While unprecedented progress is being made on television, film lags sadly behind, offering few, if any, portrayals of LGBTQ women. Curating a ranked list of the best lesbian movies and otherwise queer movies of all time was not easy. There are more than movies on this list now as we have continued to add to it.

Wes Craven initially planned to make the knive-fingered fiend a child molester, but California was experiencing its own mass panic over the issue when a slew of false sex abuse claims rocked the state in the early 80s.

With Blue Is The Warmest Colour out this week, we run down the best girls-only love films 14November Text Josie Thaddeus-Johns It's a constant gripe of girls who like girls that there is so little culture that explores, engages and takes seriously their sexuality. While much of Hollywood is off pretending that women only want to bang each other for the benefit of slavering men, the other prevalent lesbian storyline tends to involve one woman presenting the option of queer love to another who had never considered it before. Women are assumed to be straight until proven otherwise; proof which comes much to the surprise of the society around them, and often, the women themselves. Expect "no one understands me" angst and suburban 90s tracksuits aplenty. Another true story, the violent ending is a culmination of the underlying tension between the girls, a dizzying, hysterical friendship that lashes out against anything that threatens it.
