On these pages, we have a fairly comprehensive list of LGBT Asian movies and dramas. Well, all the ones that we could find as, let me tell you, it’s not an easy task! But we’ve had the question many a time, so I’ve striven to find all the ones I can. Below are links to pages of LGBT content lists separated into countries, where you’ll find the name of the movie/drama, the release date, synopsis, and when possible, a little key as to what you can expect. For example, it will list whether it is a drama or movie (or movie short), whether it can be listed as gay, lesbian, or trans, whether the plotline in question is the main point of the movie (be it romantic or just issues based) or if it’s just a side character, and finally, for those of you out there looking of these types of titles, there are soooo many of them which end horribly (we’re not just talking heartbreak here), so when possible we’ve put in a little hint.
Disclaimer: A title showing up in this list is, in no way, an endorsement. Most of these I’ve found by research and have not actually seen myself. (Many of them being not available online, or translated online.) So if a title ends up being of poor quality, don’t blame the messenger, this page is just a resource. When possible, if I have seen the title, I will put in a little line or two reviews to give you a further heads up.
Anyway, I hope you like it! And when you come across ones I’ve missed (because we know there will be), please give me the information in a comment, and we’ll add it in!

Question for you! I manage to also plow my way through a fair amount of LGBT Books. There are so many out there, good, bad and wink bad. Any interest in seeing a list of my favorites? Let me know in the comments below!
