While "lesbian" (i.e. girl-girl) films have long been a mainstay of the porn market, authentic lesbian erotica is still relatively rare. There are a number of people working to create their own brand of lesbian and queer porn, reflecting their own experiences and tastes. This page offers a sample of this special brand of porn.
Note: I started this page in 2006 when there weren't very many authentic lesbian films to list. Now there are lots of them. I have expanded this category page and created several new pages based on the work of individual directors. I've also include films that identify as queer and genderqueer, not just lesbian.
I've also separated out the authentic trans films. They're here.

Justify My Jiz (2013)
The blurb: Justify My Jiz is a collaboration between Feminist Porn Award’s Boundary Breaker Jiz Lee (The Crash Pad, Mommy is Coming) and CyberSocket Award-Winning sexual bad boy Wolf Hudson (L.A. Zombie, Shifting Gears).
Inspired by Madonna’s Justify My Love, the video captures the performer’s unconventional sexualities and gender-bending persuasions in a perverse tango that fluidly shifts from soft love to rough, kinky sex just as easily as the performers switch up turns giving and receiving.
Natural lighting, short hair, tight bare torsos, fishnet stockings and high-heels blend with unconventional sexual acts including cocksucking, rimming, pegging, condomed sex, mutual masturbation, nipple-play, “reverse cowboy,” and a rare view of masculine pleasure that couples well with genderqueer sensuality. The icing on the cake ends with Jiz squirting and Wolf coming — on his own chest — in a simultaneous cumshot finale.
Starring: Jiz Lee, Wolf Hudson

Maybe He's Gifted (2011)
Winner - The Golden Beaver, 2011 Feminist Porn Awards
The blurb: Maybe He’s Gifted is a visually-stunning and dream-like short from Feminist Porn Award winner N Max Lander.

Our view comes in and out of focus as if intoxicated by their lust. This is pornography as art, pure and simple.

The blurb: Courtney Trouble brings seven distinct vignettes together to create a game of sexual Roulette.

Ashley and Kisha: Finding The Right Fit (2007)
When they first met, Ashley was a lady-killer and proud of it; Kisha was sexually conservative and straight. But Ashley's doggy ways turned to dogged determination as she watched one after another of her surefire moves fail to get her into Kisha's pants. Finally, after weeks of failed seduction, Ashley's determination paid off: Kisha's ambivalence gave way to curiosity, her curiosity gave way to desire, and ultimately desire blossomed into love.
Ashley and Kisha's love scene is shot entirely on film and presented in 16:9 anamophic format with Dolby sound—ideal for playback on both standard televisions and wide-screen home theater systems.

John featured at the Berlin Porn Film Festival 2008!
The blurb: John is a regular kiwi guy who's tired of one-night stands. Men just want to shoot and leave, when John really wants to just have someone to love. An array of curious characters surround John's life - Rebecca the jealous flatmate, Leigh with his 'bag of tricks', straight workmate Andy and hirsute Bill; bisexual friend Steve and his accomodating fiancée Joanna who lets him have sex with men, and Hunter the stripper with Darius his driver.
John is is perhaps the beginning of a new genre of adult film, a cross-over film that sits between the explicit and the mainstream. A film it's okay to watch with a friend. There are gay, straight and female characters in this film, JOHN - it's a real story, with realistic characters, plots, a generous amount of gay sex scenes, a rocking soundtrack and the acting is good!
