Watch these non-fiction films about the LGBTQIA+ community to understand the community better.
This Pride Month is all about celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community and that feeling of belonging, virtually. While we always rush into the arms of fiction for an entertaining escape (David Rose’s Wine analogy), why not take a turn towards knowledgeable entertainment for once with non-fiction films? Since we’re already homebound with nothing to do except what we do every day and a lot of time to kill, why not utilize this time to get a better understanding of the LGBTQIA+ community through real-life stories and an in-depth dive into their history?
In these ever-so-changing times, sometimes we’re so involved with our present that we kind of forget the contribution of the past. These non-fiction documentaries are critically recommended to give you a deeper insight into the LGBTQIA+ community, their history, their struggle, and their journey to reach where they are today. To understand a community we need to gain insight into its roots as well as its present. So here’s a list of non-fiction films that will help you understand the community.
Paris is Burning
A Secret Love
The Celluloid Closet
The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson
