The 20 Best LGBTQ+ Movies on Amazon Prime Right Now

In celebration of Pride month, we’ve compiled a list of the best Fresh LGBTQ+ movies you can find on Amazon Prime Video right now. You’ll find breakout hit comedies (Rocketman) alongside acclaimed documentaries like Tab Hunter Confidential and God Loves Uganda. 

The titles below are sorted from the best LGBTQ+ films on Amazon Prime Video – those included with a subscription, not those you have to buy or rent for an additional cost – and ranked by adjusted Tomatometer score (which takes into account the number of reviewers weighing in, and the number of reviews per film for movies released in a given year). To be included, films had to have a Fresh Tomatometer score (60% or above).
