GENX'S LGBTQ TEEN FILMS
Being a teenager means that you are filled with embarrassing questions, sexual curiosity, romantic crushes, and raging hormones.
This is a time in your life when you are starting to look for relationship ideals that are independent of your parents and their experiences.
This is also a time when you might be trying to figure out where on earth you fit in.
Being a LGBTQ teen means that finding answers and outlets for all of these new changes can be a bit of a challenge. On top of this, you
have a bunch of additional issues to deal with: coming out, learning how to express yourself sexually, finding romantic relationships, and
dealing with the specifics of sexual health.
You may not realize it, but there are tons of movies out there that cater to teenagers facing such challenges!
