Top 10 Coming Out Scenes in Movies

The most notable scenes in film where LGBTQA characters come out to other characters either directly by telling them with words or indirectly through actions, such as a character affirming their sexuality with a passionately unexpected kiss to their crush. Instances in movies where other characters ''out'' queer individuals in question do not quali
-fy and scenes where heterosexual characters discover and speculate queer characters' sexuality alone also don't count. These scenes are all about the queer film characters individually coming out themselves to others with courage and trust, regardless if the outcome was positive or negative.

    1Simon Comes Out To His Parents - Love, Simon (2018)
    I had a very similar coming out experience with parents, with both struggling to grasp what was being said as well as being overwhelmingly loving and supporting. It was also a very cathartic moment when I watched this scene with my mom years later.

  • 2Mitch Comes Out To Courtney After Asking Him Out On a Date - ParaNorman (2012)
    I like how Courtney just assumed that whole time that he was straight, and Mitch was just so casual bringing up his boyfriend. Something to be said about assuming!

  • 3Brandon Comes Out To Olive - Easy A (2010)

  • 5Simon Comes Out To His Good Friend Abby While They Were Both Alone In a Vehicle - Love, Simon (2018)
    the "coming out to someone in a car" is a common step in the process of coming out. I think many LGBTQ people, including myself, can say they came out to someone in a parked car.

  • 6Bram Reveals Himself To Be Blue At The Carnival - Love, Simon (2018)

  • 7Simon Comes Out Online To The Creekwood High School Community - Love, Simon (2018)
    Does this even count? Wasn't he outed by someone pretending to be him? I say that as if I haven't seen this movie 100 times and don't know that yes, he is in fact outed by Martin

  • 8Colonel Frank Fitts Indirectly Comes Out To His Neighbor Lester Burnham With a Shocking Kiss - American Beauty (1999)

  • 9Theodora Comes Out As Lesbian - The Haunting (1963)
    The film came out in 1963 back when being part of the LGBTQ community was looed down upon and people in the LGBTQ community were also harassed at this time among other things. Very brave of of screenwriter(s) to include this

  • 36Isak Comes Out to His Best Friend Jonas - SKAM (2016) suggested byAmber Corbett
    the scene was handled very realistically, it follows the journey Isak takes with a lot of issues around his own internalised homophobia and navigating liking a boy for the first time. the coming out scene was written based on a real coming out experience and thus is handled delicately and with the sole interest of raising empathy and realistic repr
