Life is defined by colours, a great spectrum of them. Neither is anyone’s personality and character black and white, nor their sexuality. The need to place yourself in the rigid boundary of a certain sexual preference is something that the society is breaking out of. The movement started by the LGBT+ community is gaining momentum, and hopefully, sooner rather than later, all the orthodoxy and bigotry will be cleaned out of this world. Cinema, due to its access to and influence on people across the globe, has the responsibility of giving non-straight characters a chance to share their lives with the world. With that said, here’s the list of really good LGBT movies on Hulu that are available to stream right now:
17. Bare (2015)
‘Bare’ follows the story of a small-town girl who embarks on a life-changing journey with a drifter. Sarah worked as a cashier before she was fired due to the complaints lodged against her by a co-worker. Her boyfriend offers her a job where he is currently employed and asks her to stay with him. In normal circumstances, Sarah would have accepted his offer. However, before that, she got to meet Pepper, and that is what influenced the decisions made by her for the rest of the time. With Pepper, Sarah explores the world that lies beyond her hometown and gets a new perspective on her own self.
16. The Closet (2001)
How far will you go to secure your job? While contemplating your horizons, watch the story of François Pignon. He is not an easy man to be with. His behaviour hasn’t earned him any friends in the office, and the blandness of his life doesn’t attract anyone towards him. The worst day of his life comes when he discovers that he is about to be fired. Accepting that there is nothing meaningful left in his life now, he decides to kill himself. However, he is stopped by a psychologist who offers him a trick to keep his job. Spread the rumour that you are a homosexual and the company will have to keep you if they don’t want any blames for bigotry.
