7 Gay, Bi, Lesbian, & Queer Movies Coming Out This Spring
There's a lot of LGBTQ+ titles to look forward to at the box office this season!
It used to be that there were only a few queer movies released every year. We had to beg for scraps and hope that one or two of the handful of LGBTQ+ films released in a year were actually good. Now, we've got so much more options.
In the next few months alone, we've got queer horror, lesbian superheroes, a wartime drama, and more! Queer filmmakers are getting more and more opportunities to tell their stories, and queer stories are being told better. Here are seven of the LGBTQ+ movies coming out this spring that we're planning on checking out!

Everything Everywhere All At Once
Michelle Yeoh stars in this trippy film from Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, collectively known as Daniels. Ostensibly, it's about a Chinese-American woman who can't seem to finish her taxes, but it looks like it's so, so much more. The movie looks like it features some wild multiverse shenanigans, a queer main character, and also stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu, Jenny Slate, and Harry Shum, Jr.
In theaters March 17.
You Are Not My Mother
We can't wait to check out this Irish folk horror film from queer woman filmmaker Kate Dolan. Delivering a new take on the changeling myth, You Are Not My Mother follows Char, whose bedridden mother goes missing and then reappears the next day without any explanation. As Halloween approaches, Char must figure out what really happened to her mother.
In theaters and on demand March 25.
Better Nate Than Ever
This heartwarming film comes from Tim Federle, the showrunner of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and is based on his book of the same name.

He and his friend Libby sneak off to New York City so he can audition for a real Broadway play, and along the way, he learns what really matters.

After nearly fifteen years, this upcoming Marvel flick is going to introduce America Chavez, who is going to be the first lesbian superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
