Celebrate The Pride Month With These LGBTQ-Themed Movies On Netflix

Homosexuality has always been a burning issue across the world. The LGBTQ community has been trying hard to normalize the love between two people of the same gender, and equal rights for all. The pride month itself is one of the initiatives, to help people address the blind spot. 

We have almost reached the end of the pride month. Although this year by far had been a lot different from the past years, the global pandemic in the first quarter and black lives matter movement in the second has changed our psychological state but the pride month brought positive vibes and sheer happiness. We are celebrating this month of queer people with love & pride.

There are tons of movies and stan-up comedy on Netflix that center LGBTQ+ characters, and we’ve rounded up a few for you to enjoy them this pride month.
