For lovers who want to cuddle up and get romantic this Valentine’s Day, there are hundreds of watch options. While there are classic LGBT romances ranging from heartbreaking (“Brokeback Mountain”) to hopeful (“Desert Hearts”) to delightful (“Go Fish”), here are a dozen newish romantic films, now available on DVD or streaming services, to watch this week.

With a number of queer classics being screened this month at The Lightbox Film Center, there are at least two that definitely are worthy of your time.

Jean Vigo’s 1933 masterful “Zero for Conduct,” about “little devils at school,” will be screened Feb. 2 at 2 p.m. at the center on 3701 Chestnut St.

 

The art gallery in the William Way LGBT Community Center has been temporarily transformed into a time machine of sorts, thanks to its current exhibition.

“Black Trans Futuristic” features the work of six artists: Jamie Grace Alexander, Wriply M. Bennet, Shanel Edwards, Devyn Farries, Myx Omiya Isa and Essa Terick, aka Tahnee. The contributors are people of color from throughout the African diaspora, as well as being trans, queer, nonbinary or gender-nonconforming.
