A post shared by John DiLeo (@john.dileo.12) Any book about Hollywood is automatically filled with the work of LGBTQ artists both on-screen and behind the camera.

In my new book, There Are No Small Parts: 100 Outstanding Film Performances with Screen Time of 10 Minutes or Less—which covers 1935 to the present—you’ll find classics with gay-coded characters, such as Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Rebecca (1940), Laura (1944), All About Eve (1950), and Strangers on a Train (1951).

From more recent times, I’ve included films with explicitly queer characters, such as The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), Spotlight (2015), and Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018).Here are four performances featured in the book, each one delivered by an LGBTQ performer.
