Wolfe Video is the oldest and largest exclusive distributor of gay and lesbian films in North America.

Founded in 1985 in New Almaden by Kathy Wolfe,[1] the company began as a consumer mail order distribution company for lesbian VHS videos but has evolved over the years to become a full-service distributor of LGBT movies. Wolfe releases LGBT films on DVD in North America as well as doing film festival bookings, foreign sales, US digital delivery and broadcast sales for its library of more than one hundred feature films and dozens of shorts and documentaries.

Notable Wolfe releases over the years include: the popular gay classic Big Eden; the 20th Anniversary DVD release of Desert Hearts; New York Times Critic's Pick Were the World Mine and Thom Fitzgerald’s global AIDS epic 3 Needles. Significant Wolfe DVD releases in recent years include the Sundance Film Festival award-winner Undertow; the acclaimed French drama Tomboy; multiple award-winner Gayby and Swedish lesbian romance Kiss Me (With Every Heartbeat).

In June 2012 the company launched a new worldwide LGBT movie-watching platform, WolfeOnDemand.
