100% lesbian and bisexual stories. Lesflicks promotes films that show women loving women on screen; have a central lesbian or bisexual storyline; or which have a strong lesbian or bisexual presence which shows these women in a positive light.
Lesflicks was born with the vision of bringing together all lesbian and bisexual content on one single platform. A number of LBQ content is scattered across different streaming or rental services, but many of these projects are hard to find, whereas others have been forgotten.
Directly supporting filmmakers to get paid for their work and help make more films, Lesflicks aims to provide a platform to build a diverse community of LBQ fans and content creators from around the world by promoting films that show women loving women on screen; have a central lesbian or bisexual storyline; or which have a strong lesbian or bisexual presence which shows these women in a positive light.
