The London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival was founded by Peter Packer under the name “Gay’s Own Pictures”. It was renamed the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival in 1988. The British Film Institute, Southbank, London, run the festival. The festival is usually followed by a tour of a selection of the films chosen for the main festival.

There were calls for the name of the festival to be changed to also reflect the bisexual, trans and queer communities. The festival is now called BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival.
