Looking for feel good explicitly queer short stories and movies recomendations, boosts encouraged 

Does anybody have any recommendations for explicitly queer (i.e. not queerbatey or like we have to read into it) feel good short stories or movies?

Especially in the urban fantasy or sci-fi (especially space) genres would be good if possible :)

@photonicfae Right, I know I've read a few recently at Translunar Travelers Lounge, though I am blanking on which exactly. The vast majority of the work there is positive/feel-good or has a happy ending, and much of it is queer! translunartravelerslounge.com/

@rhiannonrevolts Thank you!

@photonicfae No problem. The 'tasting notes' let you know what you're in for--if things are a little on the dark side/spicy, they say.

Anya Ow's work is great fun, though it's in more of a medieval SEAsian fantasy setting:

I also enjoyed 'Copies without Originals' by Morgan Swim: translunartravelerslounge.com/

@photonicfae Bogi Takács' work often ends happily also--thinking of Three Partitions or eir Eren universe work. giganotosaurus.org/2014/04/01/

@photonicfae A few films which come to mind:

Girltrash: All Night Long
Carol
Saving Face
But I'm a Cheerleader
Circumstance
D.E.B.S.

And Autostraddle has a very good "Best 200" list that's packed with interesting films you may not have even heard of; the only flaw is some of them are difficult to find, officially or otherwise.

@photonicfae these aren't in your preferred genres, but The Half Of It and Big Eden are really sweet gay romantic comedies.

also, have you seen The Old Guard? it's somewhat grim/violent, but it is sci fi, very gay and very good.

oh and Pride also comes to mind, but you've probably already seen that!

@twistylittlepassages Thank you, I appreciate it, whether it's in my prefered genres or not :)

re: Looking for feel good explicitly queer short stories and movies recomendations, boosts encouraged 

@twistylittlepassages Oh and no I haven't seen The Old Guard, nor Pride (at least not all the way through)
