Five Queer Films To Stream In May

Spring is here, which means outdoor seating at your favorite bottomless brunch venues, dusting off your favorite short shorts, and assembling an itinerary of all the perfectly Instagramable springtime activities. Or it means taking advantage of the central air conditioning in your apartment. Let’s be honest:the unnecessary heat of global warming is just another reason to stay indoors.

Luckily there are plenty of queer titles streaming on Netflix and Hulu to keep us occupied. From celebrity biopics to killer dark comedies, here are a few you must catch up on this month.

You’re Killing Me

This rare horror romantic comedy stars Jeffery Self as George. When George meets Joe (Matthew McKelligon), they quickly hit it off. But George doesn’t know Joe is killing off all his friends. You’re Killing Me is now streaming on Hulu.

Below Her Mouth
