Top 10 Lesbian Themed Movies of 2012

Lesbian characters in mainstream movies were few and far between in 2012, but thankfully it was an excellent year for thoughtful, provocative, witty and sexy lesbian-themed films on the LGBT festival circuit. With the help of luminaries and up and coming directors we’ve compiled our list of the ten best. Although, our list is actually comprised of nine lesbian-themed films and one trans film that was so moving we had to include it. From the nascent love in Mosquita y Mari toYoung and Wild’s kinetic sexual energy to the crowd-pleasing romance Kyss Mig, it was an excellent year in cinema. A few of the films screened in their native countries in 2011 but did take off at US festivals until this year.

Kyss Mig: 

An absolute crowd pleaser, director Alexandra-Therese Keining's film tells the story of uptight Mia and free spirit Frida, who fall in love at their parents wedding. The facts that Mia has a fiancé and that their parents are marrying each other poses some pretty big obstacles but true love will not be stopped in this film that was realeased in its native Sweden in 2011 but made its big splash at festivals this year.
