Les Flicks for LBQ fans

Lesflicks exists to increase the knowledge of, and access to, lesbian and bisexual films. 100% lesbian own and run by the community, an independent business supporting you to see the stories you want and the representation you need that you won’t find in cinemas or on mainstream streaming sites.

Representation on streaming services exists, but only to an extent. We are able to see that through the number of titles, and the storylines within those titles. When it comes to stories about queer women, the stories are usually one of two things - a brilliant, award winning historical or biographical film that ultimately ends in heartbreak or disaster, or a heavily sexualised, plot-light movie that has blatantly been crafted for the male gaze. We want more than this. We deserve more than this. And it is precisely why Lesflicks was founded.

There are a wide range of titles including well known lesbian classics such as I Can’t Think Straight and The World Unseen, and more famous indie titles such as the lesbian trilogy of Butch Jamie, Heterosexual Jill and S&M Sally. More recently they added the brand new film from well-known lesbian director, Nicole Conn.

As well as a core and growing bank of features; there are many short films. Shorts are great for putting across amazing stories and experiences. Short films are often filmmakers first films and offer entertainment in short form which is ideal for busy days to break up the day. From 5 minutes to 20 minutes; and if a short isn’t for you; it isn’t too long before you can move onto the next one!

Take a look and see what interests you. Lesflicks launched the platform in September 2019 and add new titles every month so keep checking back too!
