Looking to have a few more LGBT filmmakers offering up their 140 characters or less takes on anything from their own process to what they thought of last night's "Girls" or "True Detective"? Look no further! Below is /bent's not entirely comprehensive (but we think a damn good attempt at it) list at all the  LGBT filmmakers you should follow on Twitter.

Feel free to add your favorite LGBT filmmakers on Twitter in the comments below, we'll consider adding them to updated editions of this article (which will also be updated to provide more extensive information on each filmmaker).

    Follow comments by the director of @BreakingThruMov - groundbreaking doc in which openly LGBT politicians share their deeply personal, surprisingly vulnerable stories of overcoming multiple barriers to live authentically.

    Me! @LaloCisneros :-) An LGBT, Hispanic two-fer.

    Your list is of LGBT filmmakers, leaving out the I for intersex, and not LGBTI filmmakers but here is a name that should be included here if you are prepared to extend it to include all of the LGBTI community:

    Phoebe Hart @hartflicker

    I do hope that you will become intersex inclusive from now onwards.
