LGBTQ Feature Films

Did you know that Carnegie Library has a sizable LGBTQ film collection? The largest collection in one place can be found at our Main (Oakland) location.

Don’t feel like searching for a parking spot? You can browse our catalog, using a variety of keywords (LGBT Video, gay men DVD, lesbians DVD) and have the titles you choose sent to the library of your choice for pickup.

You can also check out what’s available to stream or download on hoopla. Like our other services, borrowing movies and TV shows (as well as eBooks and eAudio) on hoopla is absolutely free.

So, consider borrowing one of the titles below or search for something completely different. You’ll have to provide the popcorn, but otherwise the show’s on us.

You can sign up for a free library card here. If you are new to our eResources, check out these tutorial videos on how to get started.

Looking for a good book, album, movie or TV show? We’re happy to recommend them to you! Use this Personalized Recommendations form to send us some information about what you like and we’ll curate a list just for you.

If you have any additional questions, you can contact a librarian through FacebookInstagram or Twitter. You can also call us at 412.622.3114 or email us at
