List of LGBT-related films directed by women

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender-related films that were directed by women. LGBT-themed films directed by women – especially, but not exclusively, lesbian-themed movies – are an important and distinct subset of that genre.[1] Academics have studied the issue of how women as directors contribute to the way lesbian stories, in particular, have been told;[2][3][4] while LGBT media, and to some extent the mainstream, have examined the difference a "female gaze" brings to a film.[5][6][7][8]

Telefilms and documentaries are included in the list. Films co-directed with men are not included.
