Haven't been running across much queer cinema as of late. I've seen everything on the BFI Flare list that is available at my library. Need a lead on the newer films I should be watching out for.
PM me what you're looking for and I'll see if I can help you out. Also, I added this to my Queer Official Checks List; not sure how I didn't notice it before.

bk. The Ernie Game (1967) - 7.4 - not sure whether I would count this as queer or not. There's a scene where the lead character says he's queer and that he's been attracted to men, but then it's never brought up or referenced again until an ambiguous scene toward the end. I'm not sure if it was trying to get around censors or be subtle, or if it was just random.
bl. Montreal Main (1974) - 7.2 - almost like a gay version of Sundays with Cybele in its depiction of the central relationship. No one identifies as gay in the film (and they try to justify why in a scene or two), but many fall somewhere on the spectrum, and most seem to lean more heavily to the 7 than the 1 on the Kinsey scale.
bm. Notes for a Film About Donna and Gail (1966) - 6.8 - supposedly about two women who are in a relationship and not just good friends, but if that's the case then it's very coded and practically invisible. This and Ernie were both directed by Don Owen and feature a young Jackie Burroughs, who I've only ever known as an old(er) lady, so even if I didn't love either film, I enjoyed seeing a different side of her.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) - The main character Champ Kind does have gay suggestions in both movies without any reactions from his friends. There is also a taken gay character in A2, but not part of the plot.
City Lights (1931) - Chaplin acts gay to a boxer he's about to meet in the ring to make him uncomfortable.
Kongen av Bastøy (2010) - Molester
The Last Emperor (1987) - Eastern Jewel rolls down Elizabeth's stockings and proceeds to nibble on her toes. But they are high on opium.
Split (2016) - dual perosnalities, of which at least one is a woman.
Viskningar och rop (1972) - The maid is completely devoted to one of the sisters. But it seems more like motherly compassion than gay.

Hmm, interesting idea for a challenge. I'll look through my recent viewings and try to come up with something of a meaningful starting point for this.

Me again. ^_^

Haven't conjured all that many results yet, just by going through my last 100 ratings on IMDB, and stuff I've re-watched recently. But I'll still happily contribute what I've got so far:

Re-watches
1. Red River (1948) - A plethora of mild but noticeable gay subtext, leaning heavily on innuendos and visual suggestion.
2. Spotlight (2015) - One of the molestation victims is a gay man, and of course many of the priests involved in the scandal are almost certainly homosexual as well.

First time viewings (coincidentally, all newer releases seen in theaters this past month)
1. Wish Upon (2017) - The examples here are twofold, one stereotypical and the other handled much better: the main "mean girl" of the film has a flamboyant "sassy" gay best friend that's used mostly for comic relief, though is also never shamed or made to feel bad about being gay. And later on in the film, the lead character wishes for herself to be the most popular girl in school, one of the effects of which being that other female classmates are shown making friendly but clearly sexual advances towards her. IMO done tastefully and not played up for laughs.
2. Atomic Blonde (2017) - Charlize Theron's leading lady has an explicitly sexual encounter with Sofia Boutella and carries on a seemingly romantic relationship with her for a short period of time afterwards.
3. Annabelle: Creation (2017) - Borderline and hardly explored beyond the surface level elements, but warrants mentioning: the two main characters (Janice & Linda, roughly aged in the 12-15 zone) are inseparably close from their first moments onscreen, and a handful of other moments suggest that things run a little deeper. This is almost dropped entirely by the third act, but adds a bit of depth and context to their characters as things continue to move forward with the plot. And just to make it seem less like I'm a creepy weirdo, I'm not the only one who picked up on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R24lODftT-0 (acknowledgement comes in around the 6:30 mark)

Tally of orientations, thus far
Bi-Sexual: 1
Gay: 3
Lesbian: 2

29. The Celebration (1998) - Powerful, but sad movie.
Spoiler and possible trigger warningShow
I think child rape and most instances of pedophilia are always an LGBT... topic. It touches on power issues, leaving vulnerable populations at extreme risk, which unfortunately covaries with LGBT... groups. This film does a fantastic job at showing that power dynamic and how gender is not the overriding factor.

Thanks. The basic idea was to come up with something while we waited for an LBGT... list to become official, but I'm glad folks have enjoyed it and found it useful. (I just wish I could update the cross reference list but I've already got a list and not sure how it was put together.) If anyone else is interested in updating the combined list, speak up. :)

It's brokenface's list so you can ask him to update it. Since icm is down right now I cannot confirm, but I'm pretty sure he mentions which lists he uses, so it should be possible to recreate it if necessary, or update it with additional lists. I can also create a separate aggregate/cross-reference list with whichever lists we want to use.

Me again, with another month's worth of viewings to comb through.

Re-watches
1. The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) - The character of the mad scientist Dr. Pretorius has long been perceived as a gay man for decades by viewers and film scholars alike; and after my recent re-watch, I certainly can't disagree with those interpretations. It's admittedly all played at the sub-textual level, but there's something there for sure.
2. Laurence Anyways (2012) - Re-watched for the Canadian poll; a sprawling, three-hour long story of a transsexual's physical and emotional journey, both before and after their transition. Very empathetic and sensitive towards the treatment of its subject matter.

First time viewings
1. St. Elmo's Fire (1985) - Directed by the openly gay Joel Schumacher, and also containing a scene where one character accuses another of harboring hidden homosexual feelings. Not a main plot thread, and doesn't impact the overall story of the film much at all, but still warrants mentioning.
2. Exotica (1994) - A female on female kiss occurs during the film. Not necessarily essential to the plot, but to be expected given the night club setting.
2. The Barbarian Invasion (2003) - A a gay couple is shown at one point in the film.

I also saw Annabelle: Creation on the big screen a second time (this time with a friend, and hidden alcoholic beverages) and now feel more confident in my initial queer-friendly suspicions. Maybe it's because I was more aware of it going in that its lesbian inclinations felt more apparent this time, but I'll eat my shorts if it wasn't intentional on at least some level, be it on the part of the director, the actresses, etc.

16. Tongues Untied (1989) - 7.0 - important documentary but I didn't really get much out of it.
bn. Empotre-moi [Set Me Free] (1999) - 7.8 - solid female coming of age drama. Is it a thing to make out with your siblings for practice?
17. The Women (1939) - 7.8 - great film, but the coded references are so coded I'd be hesitant to call them references. That being said, half the film is quotable and with all the cattiness it's no surprise it's been a big hit within the community.
bo. À tout prendre [All Things Considered/Take It All] (1963) - 6.6 - less queer than it might seem given the lead is gay; supposedly autobiographical portrait of director Claude Jutra. Didn't do much for me, but it was interesting and it's an important piece of Canadiana.
bp. Un zoo la nuit [Night Zoo] (1987) - 7.6 - such an odd film, but good. Strange supporting queer characters.
bq. Naked Lunch (1991) - 7.8 - such a strange, strange film, but I liked it in the end; the queerness creeps in but doesn't seem out of place.
br. Le confessionnal [The Confessional] (1995) - 8.0 - another film with queer elements that work well with the story and don't seem to just be token portrayals. This time it's a troubled brother and an older gentleman who provide some depth.
bs. Pulp Fiction (1994) - 8.4 - saw this a few month's back but forgot to include it here. A very notable gay scene that was so out of place but then they just ran with it it ended up working for me.

I was surprised at the prevalence of queer content in the acclaimed Canadian films I saw this month, especially those last three since they all won Best Picture at the Genies in the late 80s/early 90s. It seems like our film industry has been ahead of the curve for a while on this, and I never realized.

I've also decided I want to hit 500 queer films by the end of 2019, which will be the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. I'm about halfway there.

30. Glen or Glenda (1953) - Made with typical Ed Wood quality, this takes a remarkably trans-positive stance for a movie in 1950s America. It comes off more as an educational film with a truly confusing splash of Bella Lugosi in there. Not a good movie by any means, but a positive message for sure.

First-time viewings
1. Predestination (2014) - One of the two main characters here is a transsexual individual (in this case, a man who transitioned from a woman). The film details their childhood and eventual path to the transition in flashbacks, and this detail is a key component which drives the story forward.

2. Other People (2014) - The lead character is struggling actor that's also an out gay man, and whose entire immediate family (save for his father) is accepting of his status as such. A key subplot of the film deals with him trying to earn his father's love and approval whilst still living as an openly gay man.

3. Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) - Fictional lead musician Conner-4-Real has a hit song about equal rights, which is largely played for laughs, but it's innocent enough, and very amusing, not to mention annoyingly catchy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGAAMQLb4ZE

4. It (2017) - Bullies taunt the central group of kids by calling them several derogatory names, one of which is "faggot", though there aren't any homosexual attributes outwardly displayed or expressed by any of the boys, despite some of them behaving rather effeminately. The one female in the group, Beverly, is extremely tomboy-ish in attitude and cuts her hair short at one point, with her father commenting on how she looks like a boy, but homosexual impulses with her are only hinted at, at most.

5. In a Heartbeat (2017) - Very popular animated short details a whirlwind crush one young boy has on another. Sweet and tastefully handled, but given the short-form nature of the story, the attraction and subsequent potential romance feels fairly rushed and under-cooked.

One of the first gay-themed movies I ever saw (at least so far as I was aware) - wondering if anyone else has seen it:

Staircase (UK 1969) - Rex Harrison and Richard Burton as an aging gay couple. As I recall it was quite a grey and sad picture. I saw it in Oslo - the audience was mainly composed of little old ladies who just LOVED Rex Harrison in My fair lady.

bt. Best in Show (2000) - 7.6 - a gay couple and a lesbian coupling; caricature and stereotyping perhaps, but this mockumentary is still good. I haven't found Guest's films to be great yet, but they've all been solid thus far.
bu. Curiosity of Chance (2006) - 5.6 - was looking forward to this for a long time, but was rather disappointed. Decent story/theme with some nice eye candy that just fell flat.
bv. Brilliantovaya ruka [The Diamond Arm] (1969) - 7.4 - maybe I'm reading too much into this, and it's not something one would expect from Soviet cinema, but there's some serious bromancing going on that borders on coding homosexuality. But maybe its just me.
bw. Michael (1924) - 7.4 - an early queer-themed film (however subtle it is), I was somehow led to believe this would be more profound. Still enjoyable, but doesn't quite live up to the hype.

Sleepaway Camp (1983) Angela is actually a boy, but his mother has been raising him as a girl since his sister died. So it's not how much what his identity is but it has been forced upon him
Sauna the Dead: A Fairy Tale (2016) 21 min. - short about homosexuals and zombies in a sauna.
44. The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again (2016) - Same story as the original stage and movie production.

bx. South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut (1999) - 8.2 - never really watched the show, but this was hilarious. Lots of irreverent gay stuff intended to provoke and offend, but it works.
18. Stadt Land Fluss [Harvest] (2011) - 7.6 - not quite what I'd anticipated, but a solid, slow film.
by. Chemi sabnis naketsi [A Fold in My Blanket] (2013) - 7.2 - a pretty film but one that went over my head. Maybe there's some cultural context you need to know to better grasp it. It's in the Queer MoM on KG, but you'd be hard pressed to actually find any queer context aside from a single line of dialog and lots of wishing.
bz. Los del túnel [The Tunnel Gang] (2016) - 8.2 - surprisingly rewarding plane watch about a group of survivors; the story begins where more survivor stories end. A gay couple in the ensemble with significant contributions. Seems it didn't do well in theatres, but I thoroughly enjoyed the dark humour (my colleagues had to ask after the flight what I was watching because I was laughing out loud a lot).
ca. Desde allá [From Afar] (2015) - 7.6 - another highly anticipated film that just didn't hit the mark for me. Still, it was enjoyable even if it wasn't fully satisfying by the end. Interesting look at social dynamics, though.
cb. 10 Year Plan (2014) - 4.8 - mindless romcom. Aside from some hot guys, nothing worth seeing here, and the plot is ridiculous.
cc. Lucky Number Slevin (2006) - 8.4 - This one surprised me with how much I liked it. Gay supporting character crucial to the plot.
cd. La kermesse héroïque [Carnival in Flanders] (1935) - 7.8 - much more enjoyable than I thought it would be. Two scenes that slyly implies two characters are gay, which surprised me for a film from the 30s as it wasn't exactly subtle. An enjoyable farce.

18 films to go for bronze on the list. Might try to reach that before the poll is due. There are still a number of classic queer films I've neglected to see, especially female-centric ones. I simply must rectif that.

Haven't been back here for almost the whole month of October and hoo boy do I have a lot to catch up on. But between the new releases I've seen and stuff I watched for the October challenge, I've simply got too many to go into great detail with them all. Needless to say, I've almost doubled the amount I've watched for this challenge in just one month alone than I had gotten since starting this.

46. The Hot Spot (1990) One of the main characters are bisexual, but it isn't really relevant to the plot other than a flashback to when she had a girfriend who later commited suicide.
47. The Deep End (2001) The son (Beau) in the main family is gay, and it is his relationship that starts the main conflict of the movie.
bonus. Julia (1977) The two women Lillian and Julia are accused in being more than friends. But the movie never explores if it is something to it.
48. Lilyhammer (2013) season 2. Episode 2 and 3 is about them hiring a homosexual chef and someone having dreams about him. Positive plot.
There is also an arch about Frankie's former boss being a closeted homosexua (that started at the end of season 1) l. It's non-consentual and pervy. Negative plot.
49. Storytelling (2001) Scooby's friend is gay.

ce. All That Jazz (1979) - 7.8 - You can't have a film about Broadway and not include the gays. Even though it's autobiographical about a straight male in the theatre, there's still plenty of queerness surrounding him, especially during the airline rehearsal scene. Nothing groundbreaking, but not reliant on tired stereotypes either.
cf. Crocodile Dundee (1986) - 6.2 - The way this film handles transgendered women definitely doesn't hold up to modern ethics. I'm shocked this received a screenplay nod at the Oscars. One of the worst transgressors of dehumanizing someone for the sake of some cheap laughs.
cg. Arrebato [Rapture] - 7.8 - So queer it hurts. It took a while for me to get into this film; it's almost like a trainwreck in that it's horrid but fascinating at the same time and you can't look away. But the film grew on me and by the end I actually liked it.
19. Morocco (1930) - 7.4 - Aside from that one scene, seemingly played more for shock value than anything else, this is demonstrably lacking in queerness. Groundbreaking it may have been, memorable it is not. Still, I can't hold it against Dietrich.
20. Ma vie en rose [My Life in Pink] (1997) - 8.0 REWATCH - slightly better than I had remembered it from almost two decades ago. I showed this to my film group and they all enjoyed it as well. It may seem a bit silly at first but it's very sweet without being sickening, and the social commentary through cinematography alone won me over.
ch. Hei yan quan [I Don't Want to Sleep Alone] (2006) - 7.4 - Tsai's films are rather odd for me, but it was a nice watch, especially since it features the city I live in.
ci. Izlet [A Trip] (2011) - 7.6 - A nice little drama from Slovenia. It slowly builds and you're not really sure what it's doing, where it's going, or why you're supposed to like any of the trio, but once it gets to the crux of the film it explodes open and really does give everyone a much needed dose of personality and explain their behaviour somewhat without relying on tired tropes.
cj. On the Road (2012) - 7.4 - Lots of queerness in this beat generation film. We like to think of ourselves in modern times being so liberated, but the flower power generation and the post-war beatniks seem to have been just as uninhibited, maybe more so.

bonus. The Girls of Surrender Cinema (1997) Well, it is lesbian softcore, but as ususal just for the male gaze
51. Órói (2010) Two teens realise that they 'like' each other when they are on a school trip abroad. When they get back to Iceland they have to get to terms with their friends and see if it's actually true. The movie miss it's focus in a few other subplots so not too interesting.
52. Attenberg (2010) A girl isn't certain about anything. Is she asexual, lesbian, straight? So she keep discovering herself. I'm adding this basically as it is about figuring where you are on the spectrum.
bonus. What's Up, Fatlip? (2003) Fatlip did buy a prostitue once that turned out to be a crossdressing. He tells the whole story. It went a bit far, but he seem ok with it.
53. Sappho (2008) A film that tries to put the lesbian in Lesbos. (I'm not saying that, that is the actual main plot). A Ménage à trois with two women, a man and one terrible plot.
54. Camp Beaverton: Meet the Beavers (2013) Queer Camp at Burning Man

Borderline content:

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) - The main character Champ Kind does have gay suggestions in both movies without any reactions from his friends. There is also a taken gay character in A2, but not part of the plot.
City Lights (1931) - Chaplin acts gay to a boxer he's about to meet in the ring to make him uncomfortable.
Kongen av Bastøy (2010) - Molester
The Last Emperor (1987) - Eastern Jewel rolls down Elizabeth's stockings and proceeds to nibble on her toes. But they are high on opium.
Sleepaway Camp (1983) - spoiler
Split (2016) - dual perosnalities, of which at least one is a woman.
Viskningar och rop (1972) - The maid is completely devoted to one of the sisters. But it seems more like motherly compassion than gay.

Pegase (Morocco 2010) is a very odd film about a Berber (?) girl raised as a boy because her father has no son. Not trans, but worth a look.
:run: STILL the Gaffer!

ck. Yo soy la felicidad de este mundo (2014) - 4.2 - a queer Mexican film we saw on my friend's Netflix. Only worth it for the softcore porn that's positioned as a "arthouse film" for the middle act, otherwise avoid it.
cl. El lugar sin limites [Place Without Limits] (1978) - 7.8 - a much better queer Mexican film. Surprised that this was so well-received in the '70s, but I'm very glad it exists, even if it has a tragic ending.
21. Bound (1996) - 7.6 - The film focuses much less on the lesbian relationship than I had expected. Tilly was irritating at the start, but because increasingly more interesting. Gershon was just a stereotype. But still, it was pretty good.

neg. bonus - Meet the Spartans (2008) - A joke about the Spartans being very homoerotic
bonus - It's Pat: The Movie (1994) - Some would say Pat and the fiancee is gender queer, but they only play it out as they are androgynus, not as a part of a spectrum
55. Gigli (2003) Ben Affleck didn't get enogh with Chasing Amy, so they did it again with Gigli, but without any of the charm
bonus - The Disaster Artist (2017) - Tommy seem jelous of Greg, but not clear if it is a bromance or romance
bonus - Battle of the Colossal Women (2003) - Gigantess and lesbian fetishes
56. Battle of the Sexes (2017) - Billie Jean is a well known LGBTQ activist
57. Lady Bird (2017) - As it is rather new, I wont spoil it

Just a heads up - official Lola check The People vs. Fritz Bauer (2015) has a strong LBGTQ b storyline. I don't believe it's shown up on any of the queer lists on iCM yet.

Listen, Daddy. Teacher says, 'every time a car alarm bleeps, into heaven a demon sneaks.'

dishonourable mention: Crocodile Dundee 2 & 3 had more distasteful gay jokes thrown in, but at least they weren't as bad as the 1st in that department.
cm. Dad and Dave Come to Town (1938) - 6.6 - one of the characters in the dress shop is a stereotypical coded gay man, largely played for laughs, but still not entirely offensive, which is something for a film from the '30s.
22. Heavenly Creatures (1994) - 7.8 - Apparently one of the real women this film is based on stated that they weren't lesbians, but the movie plays up this possibility quite readily. It's a great film, with or without the queer spin on the tale.

cn. Call Me By Your Name (2017) - 7.8 - I had high expectations for this, but I came out of it just really liking it but not loving it. It was a screener from my friend (who's seen it 3 or 4 times now) but I've acquired a proper copy since then, so I'll give it some time before I revisit it. I really identified with the Elio character from when I was younger, though.
co-i. Blonde Cobra (1963 short) - 4.4 - forgettable, some interesting moments, but most just rambling and shakycam.
co-ii. Blow Job (1963 short) - 3.2 - bland, and only queer based on rumours, but still kind of audacious in execution and intention.
cp. Precious (2009) - 8.4 - a black lesbian who is a positive role model, shown on screen with her partner (I forget if they kissed or not), and is not there simply for the male gaze! She's a supporting character, and her sexuality isn't revealed until about two-thirds in (so I won't tell you which one it was), but I was pleasantly surprised by the character's inclusion (having not read the book).

Been slipping here. Allow me to catch this board up with all of my 2018 queer friendly views up to this point:

Bi-sexual
Call Me By Your Name (2017) - Self-explanatory. The entire premise of the film surrounds a summer love affair between two young adult males, both of whom also partake in relationships with women during or after the events of this film; the lead's father also confesses that he had a similar encounter when he was younger, but does not specify whether or not it was with another man.
Person to Person (2017) - One of the many ensemble cast members expresses what they feel to be their own bisexual tendencies.
*Skyfall (2012) - Daniel Craig's James Bond is bi-sexual (which is pretty clearly addressed in this film), and I will die on this hill! Same goes for Javier Bardem's villain here as well.

Gay
BPM: Beats Per Minute (2017) - Primary subject matter of the film is during the AIDS crisis in France, and a gay romance develops in the second half of the film.
*The Shape of Water (2017) - Neighbor and close friend to the lead character is a closeted gay man who makes an unsuccessful advance towards a younger man.

Lesbian
Annihilation (2018) - One of the five principle characters is an out lesbian. This is just a minor character detail, and doesn't impact much of the overall film.
Thoroughbreds (2017) - Nothing explicit or literally acknowledged on the surface level, but there's blatantly a lot of unspoken sexual tension between the two female leads, who used to be very close friends long before the events of the film, but have since grown apart for unexplained reasons. A deeply personal connection between the two once again develops over the course of this film, the nature of which is never verbally addressed, though it does border on the sensual a number of times.
To the Bone (2017) - The film centers on a young woman dealing with an eating disorder whose mother is a lesbian and is shown to be in a partnership with another woman.

Trans
A Fantastic Woman (2017) - Main subject of the film is a transsexual woman and the film deals with how she attempts to cope with the loss of her partner, as well as constantly interacting with his family after his death.

* for re-watches.

23. Desert Hearts (1985) - 7.8 - the central lesbian relationship isn't entirely believable, but then again I wasn't around in those times, so maybe it's plausible in that era. Nicely shot and quietly acted. I wonder how it was received when it was released.
cq. She's Gotta Have It (1986) - 6.8 - the main character's best friend is a lesbian/bisexual, and tries to seduce her once or twice.
cr. Arthur Christmas (2011) - 6.8 - I wanted to love this, but the central message is that if someone fucks up, there are no real consequences (I'm reading Radical Candor for work right now, and the first 10 minutes of the film scream in the face of everything the book is trying to say). Plus, the token coded gay character is an obsessive creepy elf with a thing for silver fox hunk Steve.
cs. Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) - 6.6 - more of the same, except the part where it goes batshit crazy about Fat Amy's father. As always, though, the songs, especially the riff off, are the highlight. Great rendition of Toxic, too. The lesbians are more toned down now, but I did love the are they/aren't they duo of Ashley & Jessica; they're clearly just filler roles but I love how the script plays with that in this outing, and the two actresses are total champs for keeping the joke running. But three is enough.
ct. Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts (2017) - 7.6 - This screened in the LGBT section of Cannes, but Im not sure what the LGBT connection is. I strongly suspect it was edited out, since this is Malaysia after all, and there were at least two noticeable cuts (for violence), so more might have been censored. The trailer out there is fucking amazing, but the film didn't live up to the vibe. Great use of Western (film) music as a motif, and the lead character is badass yet vulnerable. I'll rewatch this when I can get an uncensored copy.
24. Go Fish (1994) - 6.6 - lesbian romantic comedy that looks and feels like it's improvised half the time. Not great, but not terrible.
cu. Une si jolie petite plage [Such a Pretty Little Beach] (1949) - 7.6 - The older gentleman who arrives in town after the main character gives off very strong gay vibes (definitely seemed like he was trying to get the young orphan to become a prostitute to supplement his income), but it was so coded and shrouded in mystery like the rest of the film that I'm unsure what the truth was.
25. The Watermelon Woman (1996) - 7.0 - Amazing concept, less amazing in the execution. Black filmmaker looks for a famed black actress from the 30s but is unable to find much, so she keeps digging. Relationship and friendship and work troubles complicate the search, but it's fairly engaging the whole way through.

Both Desert Hearts and The Watermelon Women are nominated for the DTC this year, if anyone wants to check them out.

A good month for queer films, largely due to the female director challenge (all but She's Gotta Have It & Such a Pretty Little Beach are by women)

cv. Temporada de patos [Duck Season] (2004) - 8.2 - great coming out film. I wish I'd had the courage to express myself the same way; though it was only 8 years earlier than when this film came out it seems like a entirely different generation from me. Quirky empathetic characters on a lazy Sunday. Another example of why 2004 is one of my favourite years.
26. Mädchen in Uniform [Girls in Uniform] (1931) - 7.2 - Decent film, given the subject matter for it's time. I don't really understand why the girls fall in love with their teacher, though, and it's never fully explained/explored. Interesting look into an underrepresented (for me) time and place, from a perspective that is all too often sidelined.
cw. Gouttes d'eau sur pierre brûlantes [Water Drops on Burning Rocks] (2000) - 7.8 - weird film based on a Fassbinder play, which feels like a Fassbinder play. Minimalist setting, odd characters, strange motivations, the perfect blend of Fassbinder and Ozon. If you're not a fan of either director you can probably skip this one, but the fluid sexuality of the characters (mainly the men) is explored in a way that it's never made to seem wrong or shameful. Still, it's bizarre.
cx. Ausente [Absent] (2011) - 7.2 - Slightly disappointing, as I was expecting more from this. The central 'relationship' doesn't necessarily exist, and the power struggle/internal turmoil played out on screen is rather fascinating, but never fully engaging. The plot shifts directions with 30 minutes left, and you're taken on a different path and asked to reexamine the first hour in a different light. Overall okay, but I still want to see more by Berger.
cy. La niña santa [The Holy Girl] (2004) - 6.6 - Just because two girls kiss (for no apparent reason, as their attraction to each other is NEVER addressed outside of that scene in the film, before or after) doesn't make this a queer film. How this got on the BFI Flare list baffles me. Interesting subject matter, not so interesting film.
cz. How to Win at Checkers (Every Time) (2015) - 7.6 - I'm not sure if it's cinematic fantasy or an accurate reflection of real life (though based on my own trip to Bangkok, I'm suspecting the latter), but it's really refreshing to see trans characters (and gay ones) treating so nonchalantly that they're almost boring, especially in a non-Western culture film. Thailand may not be the most welcoming place, but it seems to be doing some things right. It's a gay coming of age story, where the gay and the coming of age are two separate components (and experience by separate characters), and it doesn't shy away from the brutal side of life.
da. Le clair de terre [Earth Light] (1970) - 6.6 - lead character of ambiguous sexuality. Pretty sure that scene in the beginning is going to a bar where he picks up clients (of both genders), but then the rest of the film that aspect is dropped.
db. Le clan (Three Dancing Slaves) (2004) - 7.8 - long on my watchlist, this was enjoyable. I think I can appreciate the same aesthetic as Morel. Almost everything is presented through a queer lens, or at least for the queer viewer, even though most of the story is not about the queer characters. Some gratuitous nudity that is sometimes oddly placed, but also refreshing in how the (straight) characters seem so comfortable with themselves. The scene with the transsexual whore is strangely comforting to me. Plus, some beautiful scenery and an appropriate soundtrack

dc. The Dresser (1983) - 8.0 - British melodrama with two great performances. Long monologues that generally don't get tiresome, and some campy elements. The storm scene is probably my most favourite. I wonder if any of this was an allusion to Welles. Stop that train!
27. Johnny Guitar (1954) - 7.8 - super campy western that isn't queer in the least but Crawford's look must have been copied by a million drag queens by now. The plot is odd and doesn't really explain much about the history of the feud. Mercedes is sure bitter in this film; perhaps the most sympathetic character Crawford has ever played.
dd. Ang Napakaigsing Buhay Ng Alipato [Alipato: The Very Brief Life of an Ember] (2016) - 5.8 - a very very weird film. Transgender/ladyboy character is included.
de. Nadie nos mira [Nobody's Watching] (2017) - 7.4 - slow-paced film about a gay Argentinian soap actor who moves to NY for a big break in a film that starts to fall through. Weird and not fully explained relationship with a man he left behind who may or may not be his (noticeably older) cousin. Also, his main roommate is a lesbian. Interesting, especially around the subject of being undocumented and a minority in a culture that fetishizes and oppresses both groups, but not phenomenal.
df. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) - 7.8 - perhaps the most surprising film legitimately on this list so far, I actually liked this more than the original. A lot of humour focuses on Jack Black's character being in a body of the opposite gender, but there's actually no gay panic that you normally see when major films portray a similar situation. I didn't know I wanted a sequel to Jumanji, but I'm glad they gave me one.

We had a couple polls in the old forum and polls didn't transfer. Unless people really want them returned to the thread, it doesn't make much sense as we'd have to start voting from zero. However, here are the results of the polls from the old forum at Zetaboards.

Do you like working from an (un)official poll list?
Yes - Lists are a great place to get started 13 (76.5%)
No - I'm doing my own thing 4 (23.5%)
My answer isn't reflected in this binary choice so I'll post it below. 0 (0%)
Total Votes: 17

It's a long list - what organization would be most useful?
Alphabetize the URLs 6 (35.3%)
Replace the URLs with the List Title 7 (41.2%)
Use Fergenaprido's grouping system (Post #72) 1 (5.9%)
Group by source (eg: Advocate, After Ellen, Time Out, etc) 0 (0%)
Group by sub-community (lesbian, gay, multi) 3 (17.6%)
I've got another idea - I'll post it below 0 (0%)
Total Votes: 17

Se diu ying hung ji dung sing sai jau / The eagle shooting heroes (HK 93)
nonsensical kung fu parody with quite a bit of lgbt horseplay thrown in.

Hi all!


Now that I can host multiple lists, I've been playing around with iCM Enhanced and believe I've figured out how to do a cross reference list (so that we can get an updated list). So I have some questions:

1) Does anyone know of any new LGBTQ... lists that need to be included in our original post?

2) How about list updates in our original post? Do any of the listed lists need an update on iCM?

3) Should we move any of the lists under "Also of note:" in our original post to the top section?

4) My plan is publish two updated Cross Reference lists - one that will serve as a 'master list' and include all titles on any of our un/official lists - those before "Also of note:" in our original post AND a Cross Reference list with a minimum number of inclusions. In the past a film had to appear on at least 3 lists to be included in the Cross Reference list: does this number still work for folks?

Listen, Daddy. Teacher says, 'every time a car alarm bleeps, into heaven a demon sneaks.'

I can probably contribute more lists that I've found in the past few months. Not until mid-August, though, when I'm finally finished travelling and back in KL.
