Howdy folks, I'm new to you guys.. I am 20 years old and live in Turkey. I came to you today with LGBT films, and I hope you like them all.. perhaps many of you have already watched it. I have a fascination with Scandinavia, and you can see it in the movies. I'd also like to point out that I'm alone, and if anyone wants to chat, I'll be around! goodbye.

1.North sea texas
2. Hearstone
3.Beatiful Thing
4. Departure

I've seen Heartstone and Beautiful Thing. Added Departure to my watchlist since I'm always looking for good LGBT films to watch. (I'm a bit of a film buff.)

May I suggest two for you? I really, really liked Weekend (2011) UK by Andrew Haigh and more recently found Dating Amber (2020) IE by David Freyne, enjoyed it even if not the greatest.

You don't by any chance have a copy of Hababam Sinifi (1975) or Selvi Boylum Al Yazmalim (1977) lying around by any chance, do you? I've been having a lot of difficulty tracking down Turkish titles from a list of best films compiled by Hürriyet. The only thing I've seen recently is Karpuz Kabugundan Gemiler Yapmak (2004) but none of these are LGBT films. I think I've only seen one Turkish/German coproduction that was gay - Hamam (1997).

I just discovered streaming a few months back. I had an IT background, but living in a rural area, I didn't think it was possible as my DSL download speed is only 3 mbps! Just this June I found lots of gay content through streaming.

I was very pissed at Amazon prime as most things required signing up for a pay streaming provider through Amazon. I was also pissed that after June for some reason LGBT+ movies stopped being a category itself. that you could find just as easily as other categories such as black based films Do they think gays only exist during pride month??? The films were still there, but not organized in a category to themselves to make it easier to find... Granted LGBT+ isn't a racial category, but regardless, we don't exist only for pride month. Also it is crap to make most of it requiring a fee after some 7 day trial to another streaming provider. Is Amazon partially controlled by the religious right??? :( :(


Anyway, one streamer that had a lot of gay content was Tubi. It has LOTS of LGBT+ content.

Note, I don't have access to know about Hulu.

My partner signed us up for Netflix a few months back. I'm also finding LBGT+ content there, but you have to use the search function. Search for gay, then gay themed movies show up in the search. Two films that I watched last night on Netflix were:

1) The Dance of the Forty-One
There was a real historical event in Mexico City where the police raided a private home and arrested about 41 men -- some dressed in drag. Rumor has it that a 42nd man might have been arrested but was not counted was the son of the Mexican President at the time. Anyway, because many of the men were prominent men, the names were never released. Anyway, this movie imagines a storyline were the son-in-law was definitely involved.

2) Almost Love
This movie has several couples and isn't limited to LGBT+ couples. Anyway, the gay couple that is in it has a very interesting twist. The one man is taking care of his comatose ex-lover who is in the hospital. However, he doesn't tell his partner. Very unique story line.

I should add that one thing I learned is that how easy it is to add stream providers somewhat depends on the TV you have. It is my Samsung smart TV that makes it so easy to add streamers. I wonder if in part it is because you can get to Google Apps.

I bought a smaller Philips TV for my partner in the living room. I've been very disappointed. It doesn't have a way to get to google apps store, at least not one that I have found. It comes with the VUDU app store which is a piece of crap compared to the google apps store. I cannot even add Amazon prime. You can do it by purchasing some add on device. Likewise if it has a HDMI port you can connect your laptop to it. In summary, I wish I had never bought a Smart TV that comes only with a piss poor android app store. VUDU app store is crap compared to google app store.

Do you have a library card? Many public and college libraries offer free streaming services like Kanopy and Hoopla. Kanopy has a pretty decent selection of LGBTQ+ content. Libraries do limit the monthly number of titles that can be streamed, but one also has the ability to sign in through multiple libraries (I have cards with two different library systems).
