This year, Hulu’s going to be presenting the Happiest Season. Starring Kristen Stewart and McKenzie Davis, Hulu calls it,
“A holiday romantic comedy that captures the range of emotions tied to wanting your family’s acceptance, being true to yourself, and trying not to ruin Christmas.”

Lifetime LGBTQ Holiday Movie Lineup
The Christmas Setup is Lifetime’s very first LGBTQ holiday films, and it looks positively delightful! They are preparing one of the cutest gay love stories the media has ever seen. Everything starts when a big New York City lawyer visits his parents in his hometown. However, he’s not alone. In order for him to run into his childhood crush, his mother sets everything up, in the name of love! Here’s the description:

Netflix Holiday Movies with LGBTQ Storylines
Netflix released its LGBT Christmas movie not long ago, and it features Nia Fairweather and Otaja Abit.
As her Christmas Eve wedding draws near, Jennifer is visited by an angel and shown what could have been if she hadn’t denied her true feelings for her childhood best friend.
A New York’s Christmas Wedding starts with Jennifer’s pre-wedding struggles, and her mother in law trying to change it into a huge Christmas wedding. However, something changes when Jennifer is visited by an angel, and she remembers her best childhood friend and first love.
LGBTQ Christmas Movies on Other Networks
Paramount’s Dashing in December is soon coming to the screens, and we get to see Juan Pablo Di Pace from Dancing with the Stars and Peter Porte from Baby Daddy play Wyatt and Heath. The story begins when Wyatt visits his mom on holidays and tries to convince her to sell the ranch. However, his plans change when he meets Heath, who absolutely loves living on a farm. Now, we just need to see what’s going to happen next.
The last on our list is Tello Film’s I Hate New Year’s which is a fabulous lesbian movie. Layne Payne, played by Dia Frampton, is a songwriter, but she experiences writer’s block. At that point, her manager sends her to see a fortune-teller named Zelena. One thing leads to another, and Layne ends up visiting her Nashville home and reconnecting with an old girlfriend. From there, we just need to see what happens.
We’re gonna have one of the best years in terms of LGBT Christmas movies. It’s wonderful to finally see same-sex couples featured as main characters instead of just supporting roles. I know it’s still a very short list, and the community deserves much, MUCH better. Still, it’s a step in the right direction. Hopefully, they’ll keep marching forward and next year this list will be a lot longer!
