I don't think Skyfall (2012) is qualify in this list. Raoul Silva was using "gay card" when he was interrogating Bond in the scene and the writer confirm it that Raoul Silva is not a gay character.

LGBTQ+ Films mean that at least the movie have character/plot/story of LGBTQ+ or recurring subplot/supporting character, which in this case Skyfall (2012) won't be qualify.

FYC:
- Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
- Easy A (2010)
Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)
Little Miss Sunshine (2006)
RocknRolla (2008)
J. Edgar (2011)
Happy Death Day (2017)

IMDb considers 'Skyfall (2012)' an LGBTQ+ movie.

I've added 6/7 of your suggestions. Thank you!

Yay, Happy Pride Month! 'Very good list but I'm wondering about The Talented Mr. Ripley: 'Good film and, granted I haven't seen it in a while, but the only LGBT character that I remember is Philip Seymour Hoffman's character and he had a rather small part -- am I forgetting something? Other than that question, the list looks good. : )

Oh, can you add a "Q" to LGBT? The Q encompasses everything so it's more complete that way. 

If you want a 35th film, you can mine my Pride polls from previous years. They're all on this list:

I was searching for LGBTQ+ related films online where I came to realize that "LGBT" is more common. But okay, I've reverted the changes.

I found 'The Talented Mr. Ripley' in one of those articles. I also found keywords related to LGBT on it's IMDb page. So I added it to my list.

I found Jack Nicholson's 'As Good as It Gets (1997) in one of your polls. I'll add that to my list. I hope it's eligible.

Thanks!

 I believe that The Talented Mr. Ripley is considered an LGBTQIA2+ movie because of the last scene where Tom and Peter are dating on a cruise.

As Good as It Gets (1997) is qualify. The Supporting Role is gay and he got Oscar nomination for that role.

Despite having an LGBTQ+ character, not every movie in your list deals with LGBTQ themes.

Maybe Popular films with a LGBTQ+ Character would be more accurate?

I'd like to keep it this way because all the films on the list are LGBT-related films.

I've created the list using many online articles and previous IMDb polls. Also a few featured LGBTQ+ lists on the IMDb homepage

For example, a user above doubted whether 'Skyfall' is an LGBTQ+ film or not, I confirmed it by replying yes since IMDb included it on their Scenes From Our Favorite LGBTQ+ Movies list. A few more movies were added with the help of IMDb (official) lists created recently or last year or years before that.

I hope my explanation is enough to let me keep the title as it is. Thank you.

By those question marks, if you mean, why is 'Brokeback Mountain' on this list; that is because it is an LGBTQ+ film.

 

It was also in another poll created by a Champion.

My favourite LGBTQ film is Robin William's The Birdcage. Though rather dated, it has a wonderful story combining both drama and comedy.
