Welcome to our guide to the most anticipated lesbian and sapphic films of 2022!
The representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people in the media has improved greatly in recent years, but there is still much to be done.
While we have seen great representation on television in recent years, with shows like "The L Word: Generation Q" and "Gentleman Jack" offering nuanced and realistic representations of female relationships, representation in film has been slower to progress.
Moreover, the film industry is just beginning to pick up steam again after a difficult year. The pandemic has forced numerous studios to delay the release of their movies. Fortunately, the industry is slowly returning to normal and 2022 looks promising for sapphic representation on the big screen, with several highly anticipated movies featuring lesbian or WLW (women-loving-women) characters slated for release.
This article provides a complete guide to the most anticipated sapphic and lesbian movies of 2022. It will give you a preview of the plot and share with you the trailer for each movie so you can stay up-to-date with the latest releases. We hope this guide helps you find the right movie to watch this year!
