Queer cinema has existed almost as long as cinema itself. The art form has proven an ideal forum for the LGBTQIA+ community to tell its stories, and to expose wider audiences to the realities of being queer throughout history. There have been literally hundreds of queer films made over the decades, some obscure, some achieving mainstream success. Now, just in time for Pride 2023, the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast wants to determine the Best Queer Film of all time!

Join host Eric Rezsnyak and panelists Jonny Minogue, Karissa Kloss, and Kevin Dillon as they discuss and debate the best films featuring lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered themes.

The Round 2 match-ups are:

Match 1: “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” (1) vs. “Heavenly Creatures” (5)

Match 2: “Milk” (3) vs. “Love, Simon” (2)

Match 3: “Brokeback Mountain” (1) vs. “The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert” (4)
