As one of the most liberal and progressive nations in the world when it comes to human rights, freedom of expression, and LGBTQ+ recognition, it goes without saying that France is a "haven" for queer films and cinematic productions. With a plethora of genres and countless artistic talents working towards the fruition and creation of never-ending stories that champion the queer narrative, it is clear that France, the country of eternal love, passion, and romance, is where the true magic happens. So, in the festive spirit of the month of Pride, LalaTai brings to you a curated list of 12 French lesbian titles available over at GagaOOlala. France, je t'aime!

The critically-raved performance of Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux in the film also allowed the committee at Cannes to unprecedentedly present the Palme d’Or Award to both, director Abdellatif Kechiche and two actresses in 2013.
