All-time highest grossing LGBTQ movies in North America 2019

The statistic shows box office revenues of the highest grossing LGBTQ movies of all time in North America as of March 2019. Ranked first is "Bohemian Rhapsody" starring Rami Malek as world-famous Queen front man Freddie Mercury. As of early 2019, the film made almost 213.5 million U.S. dollars at the North American box office, surpassing "The Birdcage" which generated over 124 million in domestic box office revenue.

Also among the top 20 highest-grossing LGBTQ films in North America were "The Hours" and "The Talented Mr. Ripley", both based on successful books. "The Hours", directed by Stephen Daldry and based on the book by Michael Cunningham, made over 41.6 million U.S. dollars at the North American box office between the time of its release and early March 2019. The film explores the lives of three women across different generations and their links to or relationship with each other as well as the novel 'Mrs Dalloway' by Virginia Woolf (who is also a character in the book, and played by Nicole Kidman in the film). "The Talented Mr. Ripley", based on Patricia Highsmith's 1955 novel, made over 81 million U.S. dollars in domestic box office revenue, and Matt Damon received several award nominations for his performances in the film.
