Portrait of Michael J. Deibert, owner of Queer Film Reviews

Hi, I’m Michael!

I have amassed a massive collection of queer and gay-themed films, shorts, series, and more. I’m here to let you know which ones are worth watching – and which ones aren’t!

This site is about Queer, LGBTQ, and Gay-Themed cinema.

My goal is to work through my massive collection of films, shorts, series and other relevant cinematic media and review them for you. Unlike other Queer or LGBT film review sites that currently exist, my reviews will not just regurgitate each film’s IMDB info. Nor will not find any streaming  or viewing sources on my site. What you will find are honest reviews – if a movie is utter garbage and not worth spending time watching, I will let you know!

My reviews are currently sorted by Genre, by my Rating Score, by Format, and by the LGBTQ Spectrum. Feel free to search for your favourite title or peruse through the everything to find something interesting. And don’t hesitate to suggest a film for review if you don’t see it listed yet!

Lastly, subscribe to my mailing list to be notified when new reviews are posted!

Queer History Films For Pride

June in the United States is a special month for the LGBT & Queer community – it’s Pride Month! It’s a month-long celebration of who we are, letting the world see us as we revel and celebrate the long struggle to get where we are today. It’s also a time

When You Cannot Stream or Buy – Ethical Issues Within Queer Cinema

While supporting queer writers, actors, artists, etc are fundamental to continue creating new queer content – what happens when you cannot actually FIND a queer film? Older films, and most foreign queer films, don’t often have the same distribution as mainstream studio releases. Independent films, TV Movies, or even films

Queer Mystery Films

Murders, detective, and … Bears? Oh my! This month’s list of queer mystery films was rather fun to research sift though, partly because most folks don’t think about mysteries when thinking of LGBTQ and Queer films. While the tides are slowly turning, the Queer film oeuvre is better known for

Queer Sport Films

Ah, Sports. A form of entertainment & exercise that has long had issues with the queer community due to the masculine-driven, homophobic nature of team sports. In fact, that’s something that four of this month’s films specifically address. There’s a delicate balance, almost a juxtaposition, because team sports, the locker

Queer War Films

While last month’s “5 Queer RomCom’s For Valentine’s Day” was focused on the lovey-dovey romances, things get a bit darker this month. War is never a happy subject, often more tragic than not. These “5 Queer War Films” stunningly capture queer stories during wartime. An interesting thing to note –
