The Classic Queer Cinema Collection
Dekkoo isn’t just a source for entertainment. We also offer a deeply engaging crash course in Queer Cinema History!
Starting with 'Queens at Heart', an eye-opening short film offering a look into the lives of four trans women during the pre-Stonewall 1960s, and continuing through to director Ira Sachs electrifying 2012 relationship drama 'Keep the Lights On', this collection exemplifies some of the most important queer cinema of the past five decades.
