You’re welcome: Here are the very best lesbian movies on Netflix
Looking for lesbian content on Netflix that aren’t horribly offensive, sickeningly cheesy, or just plain bad? It’s a struggle. Netflix isn’t the worst offender when it comes to lousy queer movies, but there certainly are a few duds in their library.
It’s tough to find a lesbian movie that accurately portrays a romance and doesn’t wander into the straight-guy-lesbian-fetish-zone also.

Here are the very best lesbian movies on Netflix.
