17 Reasons Why We Can't Wait to See a Bunch of Lesbian Movies at Outfest 2014

Outfest, Los Angeles’ premiere LGBT film festival, kicks off its 32nd year this Thursday, and if you’re looking for queer women to be represented on the big screen, Outfest is where you’ll find plenty of high comedy and drama for the girls!

Thursday’s opening gala features the lesbian themed Life Partners for starters, and All-Girl Friday at the Directors Guild of America on July 18, showing four lesbian-themed features and a Girls Shorts program, and serving cocktails on the patio, will be the lesbian cinephile reunion of the year!

Here are the women’s films screening at Outfest this year, and even if you’re not in the LA area these are the queer women’s films to keep an eye on in the coming year at a festival near you.
