Staff Picks: LGBTQ movies to watch in your underwear

I am the queen of binge watching. Why yes Netflix, I AM still watching and yes I do realize that you’re asking because the TV has been on longer than an average active viewer would watch. Easily my most proud binge-worthy moment was making a list of 100 must see 80’s movies. I successfully watched 51 in one year. Technically an F, but hey, you try watching that much Molly Ringwald at once. If you wish to do the same, feel free to email and I’ll share the excel spreadsheet I used to track my progress:

With that, I am onto a new journey of binge watching and asked the TomboyX team to share their favorite LGBTQ movies of all time. So feel free to put on a pair of your favorite TomboyX underwear or pajamas, get out the popcorn and binge from this list of staff favorites.


Priscilla Queen of the Desert

Both riotously hilarious and heartbreaking at times, Priscilla for me is the perfect depiction of a queer's closest family being the queers around them. It touches on the nuances of identity and discrimination within and without the community, and shines a bright light on personal and public struggles that queer people have always gone through, all between the witty quips and touching moments expected in a comedy classic. A+ Movie.

But I’m a Cheerleader

Omg so funny and I love anything with Natasha Lyonne. I’m a sucker for funny lesbian movies and this one takes the cake.

-Naomi, COO & Co-founder



I’ve Heard The Mermaids Singing 

Loved the raw emotion and flaws of the characters. Imaginative and creative.

-Fran, CEO & Co-founder



High Art

Not for those that love a happy ending, this is one of my favorites because it's so well-crafted and acted, and beautifully lit and shot.

-Shena, Art Director



The L Word

Not a movie... 

highly recommend binge-watching The L Word. You’ll laugh; you'll cry — sometimes at the same time. If you haven’t seen it, stop reading and turn it on immediately. If you have seen it, Showtime recently announced they are rebooting the beloved show. Now is the perfect time to revisit the characters you love and the ones you love to hate (looking at you, Jenny).

-Brenna, Community Marketing Manager



The Birdcage

Robin Williams and Nathan Lane’s chemistry make for undeniable hysteria. They make you wish they were your two fathers growing up.  

-Carol Ann, Director of Marketing
