Romeos is a German movie about a male transgender character named Lukas (Rick Okon). Lukas is still transitioning, so he’s self-conscious about his body, and he is trying to hide that he’s transgender. He finds himself attracted to Fabio (Maximilian Befort). At first Lukas’s attraction is based on the fact that Fabio represents what he wants to be in terms of manliness, but their relationship grows deeper.
Sabine Bernardi offers another really compelling transgender story, and though Romeos kind of toes the line between comedy and drama. Fabio and Lukas’s longing glances alone make Romeos worth renting.

Also consider these films: Booksmart, Wild Nights with Emily, Appropriate Behavior, and In and Out. For this list, I tried to include as many movies that represent different parts of the LGBTQ+ community (gay, bisexual, questioning, transgender, lesbian, pansexual, etc.) as I could find. However, the world of gay romantic comedies and LGBTQ+ movies is constantly growing, so if I missed some of your favorites, feel free to share them in the comment section.
