Mashable is celebrating Pride Month by exploring the modern LGBTQ world, from the people who make up the community to the spaces where they congregate, both online and off.
LGBTQ TV comes in a sensational variety of forms. This Pride Month, we're toasting some of our modern favorites, all available on streaming. Searching through Netflix, Hulu, Max, Showtime, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, and beyond, we've curated a collection of great titles we'll be watching — or rewatching — this June.
Whether you're searching for chosen family comedies, drag queen drama, queer romance, or kid-friendly adventures, we've got you covered.
Here are the best LGBTQ TV shows to stream right now.
1. The Last of Us
What it is: A post-apocalyptic drama series about a man (Pedro Pascal) and a young girl (Bella Ramsey) surviving in a post-apocalyptic world.
Why we like it: The Last of Us doesn’t merely hold the honor of being the best new series of the year, but also one that’s brazenly queer. HBO’s adaptation of the hit video game takes place in an alternate 2023 where, following the global outbreak of a brainwashing fungus, society has collapsed. Those who remain struggle to avoid infection — or death by the zombie-like Infected.
A better-than-ever Pascal plays rugged, violent Joel, who reluctantly sets out on a mission to smuggle Ellie (Ramsey) to a destination across the country (if you don’t know more about the plot yet, keep it that way). Beyond phenomenal performances, stunning production design, and a delicate balance of human storytelling and terrifying action, The Last of Us gives us a complex queer lead in Ellie, who gets a touching romance flashback episode. Plus, there's a standout episode about a gay couple that will bring you to the messiest of tears. — Oliver Whitney, Contributing Writer
Where to watch: The Last of Us is streaming on Max.
What it is: This Spanish biographical series is based on the life of trans icon and late-night TV personality La Veneno.
Why we like it: Few series about historical figures are charged with as much verve, style, and extravagance as Veneno, one of the best LGBTQ+ shows in recent memory.
Javier Ambrossi and Javier Calvo’s Veneno is as loud, colorful, and in your face as its unfettered subject, Cristina Ortiz Rodríguez, aka La Veneno (“The Poison”), a trans woman who rose to fame in mid-90s Spain after a late-night talk show featured her in a segment about sex work. Veneno traces the woman’s remarkable life story alongside that of real-life trans journalist Valeria Vegas (Lola Rodríguez), who wrote a book on the icon the series is based on.
Most notably, the show tells Cristina’s story through three different trans actresses — Jedet, Daniela Santiago, and Isabel Torres — portraying her at various stages of her life and transition. A series that finds depths of beauty and glamorous joy in the life of a woman who met with immense struggle, Veneno is an underseen gift that should be far more celebrated than it has been. — O.W.
Where to watch: Veneno is streaming on Max.
What it is: A psychological horror-thriller about an all-girls soccer team that crash-lands in the middle of the wilderness and must survive, maybe by eating each other.
Why we like it: An all-female Lord of the Flies that’s hauntingly spooky, violent, queer, full of twisty mysteries, has whip-smart plotting, and is partially set in the '90s? If that’s not enough to get you obsessed with Yellowjackets, then know it has an absolutely stellar cast including Melanie Lynskey, Juliette Lewis, Christina Ricci (the series MVP), Jasmin Savoy Brown, Liv Hewson, and many more.
Without giving too much away, the series jumps from the wilderness-strewn high schoolers to their present-day adult selves as we try to piece together what actually went down in those woods. There’s a lot of Big Gay Energy in Yellowjackets that's both energetic and stylistic, from music cues to costumes. But beyond that, there’s a sweet queer romance between two standout characters who will quickly become your faves. — O.W.
Where to watch: Yellowjackets is streaming on Showtime.
What it is: A dramedy about two Mexican-American sisters who return home to their gentrifying Los Angeles neighborhood after a family tragedy.
Why we like it: Vida is one of the most refreshing new series in recent years, as well as one that got canceled too soon. In its brief three seasons, Vida follows Mishel Prada as Emma, a high-strung, ambitious corporate exec, and Melissa Barrera as her easy-going, free-spirited younger sister Lyn. After their mother dies, the sisters move back to their home in Boyle Heights, a gentrified Latinx neighborhood, and the queer Emma soon begins to reckon with shame around her sexuality and complicated discoveries about her mother. Tanya Saracho’s series is a joyous love letter to the queer Latinx community, and one that isn’t afraid to explore grief and shame alongside lust and passion. — O.W.
Where to watch: Vida is streaming on Starz.
5. We’ve Been Around
What it is: A documentary web series exploring icons of trans history.
Why we like it: Trans history has either gone undocumented or been violently erased (look up the Nazi burning of Magnus Hirschfeld’s trans clinic to learn more). But thanks to trans historians, journalists, and filmmakers, more and more history of trans life and resilience has been shared in digital media, and Rhys Ernst’ We’ve Been Around is one of the best of those gifts. The short docu-web series, which comes from a large swatch of trans creatives including Susan Stryker and Monica Roberts, consists of five episodes, roughly five minutes each, that creatively delve into the lives of various trans icons. There are episodes on pioneering gay trans man and AIDS activist Lou Sullivan; S.T.A.R., the radical organization founded by Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera; Camp Trans, the iconic 1990s protest against TERFS led by Les Feinberg and Riki Wilchins; and more. It’s vital Pride Month viewing. — O.W.
Where to watch: We’ve Been Around is streaming on YouTube.
6. Interview with the Vampire
What it is: Be gay, do crime — as a gothic romance between vampires.
Why we like it: Vampires have long been a metaphor for queerness, and Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire — both her 1976 novel and the 1994 film adaptation — were also so obviously gay. But that subtext becomes the literal text in Rolin Jones’s AMC series, an adaptation that finally lets the vampires be their big gay selves. We don’t just get more bloodsucking-as-queer-desire allusions, but actual queer sex scenes full of bites, blood, and beautiful levitating naked men.
The series follows Louis de Pointe du Lac (Jacob Anderson, Grey Worm from Game of Thrones) as he recounts the wild tales of his life as a wealthy gay Black vampire in 1900s New Orleans and the lover companion of Lestat (Sam Reid). What makes this new iteration of Interview so compelling, though (apart from being super gay, of course), is how it updates Rice’s original material to offer sharp social commentary on race, class, and sexuality. — O.W.
Where to watch: Interview with a Vampire is now on AMC+.
What it is: A narrative web series about a group of trans men living in Brooklyn.
Why we like it: There might be a bit more trans representation onscreen today compared to when Brothers first debuted in 2014, but at least one glaring lack remains: stories about transmasculine people, told by transmasculine people — and not just in supporting roles, but as leads. In Emmett Jack Lundberg’s short-form series Brothers, we follow the intimate daily lives of four young trans men across Brooklyn. It’s a show searing with authenticity that touches on things that I, a transmasc person, had never seen explored on screen before — the difficulties of dating as a trans man, the anxiety of using the men’s restroom, navigating healthcare, sex, planning for surgery, and discussions on the physical changes of HRT. Brothers is a special series that feels like an intimate hang with your closest trans friends, and for allies, it offers an insightful look into stories often left untold. — O.W.
8. The Lady and the Dale
What it is: A biographical docuseries about a trans trailblazer con artist who peddled the invention of a three-wheeled car in the 1970s.
Why we like it: The Lady and the Dale has practically all the excitement and WTF-ery you could want from a wild true crime tale — a protagonist on the run from the feds, secret ties to the mob, a flashy scam, and a history of unethical behavior. The four-part docuseries from directors Nick Cammilleri and Zackary Drucker details the complicated life of Elizabeth Carmichael, an entrepreneur/con artist who swindled the idea of the Dale, a three-wheeled vehicle that would allegedly alleviate the oil crisis of the 1970s, and who was grossly mistreated in the media (largely by Tucker Carlson’s father, Dick Carlson) when outed as a trans woman. The Lady and the Dale is a fascinating roller coaster ride that both holds Carmichael accountable for the harm she caused and lies she wove, while also finding compassion for the way she was victimized as a trans woman. — O.W.
Where to watch: The Lady and the Dale is streaming on Max.
9. Her Story
What it is: A drama web series about the dating and professional lives of two trans women in Los Angeles.
Why we like it: Her Story is a short and sweet web series that captures the nuances of dating as a trans woman unlike any show you’ve seen before. And that’s because it features trans and queer creators behind and in front of the camera. From Jen Richards and Laura Zak, the series follows Violet (Richards), a trans woman working as a bartender in L.A., and her close friend Paige (Angelica Ross of Pose fame), a lawyer who represents queer clients for Lambda Legal. Over the course of six nine-minute episodes, Her Story charts each woman’s experience in a new relationship: Violet, who previously identified as straight, begins dating a queer woman (Zak) for the first time, while Paige navigates how to come out to the cis man she’s seeing. It’s a treat to watch Richards and Ross on screen together, and more than anything, Her Story is an example of the type of authentic storytelling that’s possible when trans stories come from trans perspectives. — O.W.
Where to watch: Her Story is streaming on YouTube.
What it is: A dramedy about a messy Los Angeles Jewish family whose matriarch comes out as a trans woman.
Why we like it: It must be said upfront that there are many problems with Transparent, from trans performers' on-set allegations of harassment to the fact that the lead trans character Maura Pfefferman is played by a cis man (Jeffrey Tambor, the one accused of said harassment). Even so, Transparent undoubtedly played a groundbreaking role in trans representation when it debuted in 2014, and the lasting impact of the series is largely (if not wholly) due to the trans producers, writers, and actors involved in it. So I’ll focus on their contributions. It’s Alexandra Billings’ scene-stealing work as Davina, Trace Lysette’s performance as Shea, and Hari Nef as Gittel in a series of flashbacks that bring the story of Magnus Hirschfeld and the world’s first trans clinic to the screen. Their performances, along with the work of writer and producers Our Lady J, Zackary Drucker, and Rhys Ernst, made Transparent a cultural shift that, for the first time in TV history, spoke to something true about trans experiences. — O.W.
Where to watch: Transparent is streaming on Prime Video.
11. Our Flag Means Death
What is it: A humorous historical fiction starring Taika Waititi as Blackbeard and frequent Waititi collaborator Rhys Darby as Stede Bonnet, the Gentleman Pirate.
Why we like it: What don't we like about it? Our Flag Means Death is a bait-and-switch masterpiece that lures the audience in with the hilarity of Waititi's anachronistic writing set against the Golden Age of Piracy and traps 'em with the reveal that OFMD is a gay romantic comedy. Our Flag Means Death treats the near-ubiquitous queer romances of its cast with humor, respect, and often stunning tenderness, culminating in one of TV's most satisfying slow-burn relationships. — Alexis Nedd, Senior Entertainment Reporter
12. XO, Kitty
What is it: A spin-off series from the To All the Boys I've Loved Before movies that follows Kitty Song-Covey (Anna Cathcart) on her own quest for love.
Why we like it: While everything about XO, Kitty, from its trailer to its marketing, set up a straight relationship, the show turns its own premise on its head with a surprise, queer twist. The result is an incredibly endearing sapphic relationship brimming with all the yearning and near-kiss moments that make romance great. Plus, there are a lot of other equally cute queer relationships (with their own amount of drama) sprinkled throughout the show that will have you hooked and begging for a Season 2. — Yasmeen Hamadeh, Contributing Writer
Where to watch: XO, Kitty is streaming on Netflix.
13. Everything's Gonna Be Okay
What it is: A dramedy series that centers on an Australian man (creator Josh Thomas) raising his American teen stepsisters in the wake of their father's death.
Why we like it: Starring as neurotic but lovable Josh Moss, writer/actor Josh Thomas playfully pitches himself in a fish-out-of-water scenario, where culture clashes, generation gaps, and sibling rivalries collide to comedic and heart-hitting effect. Far from a one-man show, Everything's Gonna Be Okay also explores the inner life of Josh's boyfriend (Adam Faison), anxious little sister Genevieve (Maeve Press), and music prodigy Matilda (Kayla Cromer), who is on the autism spectrum. Through their journeys, this brilliantly empathetic comedy explores coming of age, queerness, asexuality, and the true meaning of family. — Kristy Puchko, Film Editor
14. Schitt's Creek
What it is: A sitcom about a rich family forced to move to a rural town.
Why we like it: Apologies for being the thousandth person to tell you to watch Schitt's Creek ... but like, just watch Schitt's Creek? Not only is this series one of the most all-around delightful viewing experiences in modern memory, but it also offers a moving and nuanced look at LGBTQ love that actually lets a gay couple serve as the main romantic storyline. Dan Levy and Noah Reid will charm the absolute socks off of you, so enjoy every minute of their characters' perfect romance. — Adam Rosenberg, Weekend Editor
Where to watch: Schitt's Creek is streaming on Hulu.
15. The Owl House
What it is: An animated show about a human girl who gets stuck in the demon realm, where she learns magic under the tutelage of a charismatic witch.
Why we love it: Zany and epic in equal measures, The Owl House is a celebration of individuality that joins other animated shows such as Steven Universe and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power in breaking new ground in LGBTQ representation. The show's main character, Luz Noceda, is unapologetically queer and in a blossoming romance with her former rival, Amity. The Owl House also makes history by introducing Disney's first-ever nonbinary character: bard Raine Whispers. While the show's end is nearing, there's no understating the impact it's had on audiences. Seriously, its devoted fanbase makes it trend on Twitter any time a new episode comes out. That's the power of Lumity. — Belen Edwards, Entertainment Reporter
16. The L Word: Generation Q
What it is: A reboot of the popular aughts dramedy The L Word.
Why we like it: From 2004 to 2009, The L Word dazzled fans with its captivating — and, for the times, groundbreaking — drama of a lesbian friend group living in Los Angeles. In 2019, Showtime brought the beloved title back with The L Word: Generation Q, which features a more modern set of characters but shares the same caliber of juicy plotlines as the original. Stars Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moennig, and Leisha Hailey return, alongside newcomers Arienne Mandi, Sepideh Moafi, Leo Sheng, Jacqueline Toboni, and Rosanny Zayas. It's a ridiculously fun watch that continues the series' legacy of increasing LGBTQ visibility through a metropolitan lens. — A.R.
17. RuPaul's Drag Race
What it is: A reality competition show determining who will be “America’s Next Drag Superstar.”
Why we like it: RuPaul's Drag Race brought the art form of drag to the mainstream, providing a platform to queer artists all across America and the world. Ever since its 2009 premiere, Drag Race has increased the visibility of LGBTQ stories and issues: Contestants on the show candidly discuss everything from fighting for marriage equality to being HIV positive. Drama may occur (this is a reality show, after all), but there’s a persisting sense of support and cherishing found family throughout. Plus, you'll be in awe of these queens' talent and the sheer versatility of drag. — Belen Edwards, Entertainment Reporter
18. Love, Victor
What it is: A dramedy about coming out in high school spinning off the popular film Love, Simon.
Why we like it: This TV spin-off from 2018's queer romantic comedy Love, Simon stars Michael Cimino as Victor, a new student at Simon's high school. He's a star athlete, a model son, a great friend ... and he's beginning to think he might be gay.
Love, Victor is pitch-perfect high school drama with all the sweeping musical cues and whispered secrets that entails, and its connection to the original movie is incredibly sweet — Victor reaches out to Simon (now graduated) on Instagram for advice, and the franchise's OG romantic hero periodically offers him advice on how to deal with life at Creekwood High.* — A.N.
19. Dead End: Paranormal Park
What it is: An animated series that follows a trans boy and his friends who work at a haunted theme park full of demons, goofy to diabolical. (Imagine Dollywood meets hell!)
Why we like it: Based on Hamish Steele's fantastic graphic novel DeadEndia, Dead End: Paranormal Park blends comedy and horror with what it means to come of age trans. Having left behind a family who doesn't support him, Barney (voiced by Zack Barack) finds a rich community among his new friend Norma (Kody Kavitha), his crush (Kenny Tran), a mischievous demon (Emily Osment), and his loyal pet pug (Alex Brightman), who has acquired the ability to talk and do magic! — K.P.
What it is: A sci-fi drama about a powerful and diverse group of people with a special connection.
Why we like it: Science fiction has the power to break storytelling boundaries whenever and however its creators see fit. Sense8 did that in all the ways that matter. This diverse, LGBTQ-inclusive story of "sensates" (people emotionally and psychologically linked to one another) reimagined the boundaries of human connection and made countless viewers feel seen. With just two seasons, fans could never get enough of Sense8, but at least Netflix made good on that finale — delivering a lasting legacy to streaming-kind.* — Alison Foreman, Entertainment Reporter
21. Steven Universe
What it is: An animated series about a half-gem, half-human boy being raised by the Crystal Gems, the last remnants of an alien rebellion that saved the world hundreds of years ago.
Why we like it: Steven Universe is a seamlessly progressive and wholesome show that uses its characters and framing to casually interrogate gender and sexuality while telling a story about love, family, and growing up. From the all-female Crystal Gems' queerplatonic and romantic relationships to Steven's comfort with exploring his own gender expression, Steven Universe makes highlighting the vast and beautiful spectrum of queer love look easy. — A.N.
22. Orange Is the New Black
What it is: A dramedy about women incarcerated at the fictitious Litchfield Penitentiary.
Why we like it: Created by Jenji Kohan, Orange Is the New Black did as much for diversity behind the camera as it did for diversity in front of it. This award-winning series, partially based on the memoir of the same name, began as a character study of a privileged bisexual woman serving a short sentence in a minimum-security prison. But the series soon fanned out to include important meditations on Black Lives Matter, immigration, trans rights, and more. That these stories were told with authentic voices in the director’s chair and writers' room makes them all the more special. — A.F.
What it is: A drama about teenagers growing up in modern California.
Why we like it: Not for the faint of heart, Sam Levinson's Euphoria takes the teen drama to terrifying new heights. Starring Zendaya as a young addict and Hunter Schafer as her just-as-troubled love interest, this neon-soaked series profiles the increasingly strange world in which children grow up. Equal parts glitter and grit, this sprawling narrative encompasses numerous LGBTQ plotlines, as well as more personal stories of sexual self-discovery. Supporting performances by Maude Apatow, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Sydney Sweeney, Angus Cloud, and more make it a must-watch. — A.F.
24. Harley Quinn
What it is: An animated Batman spin-off series that follows Gotham City's Harley Quinn as she re-evaluates her life following a cataclysmic break-up with Joker.
Why we like it: Harley Quinn is a show with hidden delights. Kaley Cuoco anchors the whole thing as Harley herself, but her main crew — Poison Ivy (Lake Bell), Clayface (Alan Tudyk), Doctor Psycho (Tony Hale), King Shark (Ron Funches), Sy Borgman (Jason Alexander), and Frank the Plant (J.B. Smoove) — is where we find the show's heart. Constantly surprising viewers with complex, nuanced considerations of life and love while also delivering gigantic laughs, Harley Quinn's combo of wild plot twists, tender handling of queer relationships, and riotously hilarious send-ups of the classic Batman rogue's gallery easily make it one of the best things you can watch on Max right now. — A.R.
25. We're Here
What it is: A reality makeover show where members of a small town's queer community are transformed into drag performers.
Why we like it: We're Here showcases the often untold stories of queer people living in rural towns across America, using drag to amplify their voices and proudly assert their presence in places where they aren't always accepted. It's a heartfelt celebration of self-expression and community, and it makes it clear that drag is for everyone, no matter your gender. To top it all off, hosts Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O'Hara, and Shangela Laquifa Wadley put on a phenomenal drag show at the end of every episode. What's not to love? — B.E.
26. Grace & Frankie
What it is: A sitcom about two gay men, their ex-wives, and their children.
Why we like it: The world is a better place because of Grace & Frankie. This beloved Netflix sitcom came into our lives in spring 2015 and has provided a sparkling well of comfort viewing ever since. Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen star as a closeted couple in their '70s who, after years of hiding, decide to come out. Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda play the pair's burned ex-wives, whose journey of self-acceptance and friendship anchors the rest of the series. Unceasingly heartwarming, Grace & Frankie has spurred important conversations across generations, imbuing what could have been a stale story with progressive ideology and genuine love. — A.F.
27. Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts
What it is: An animated series about an optimistic young girl braving the dangers of a post-apocalyptic Earth overrun with mutated animals.
Why we love it: It's not often that you hear a character say "I'm gay" in an animated show aimed at younger audiences, but that's exactly what happens in Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts. Early in the show's first season, Benson, one of the series' leads, comes out to Kipo in a remarkably sweet scene. His later romance with another human survivor is equally lovely, as is the show's embrace of queerness. Plus, this series has gorgeous animation, a killer soundtrack, and frogs who wear snazzy suits. Why aren't you watching, already? — B.E.
What it is: A drama set in New York City's ballroom scene of the 1980s.
Why we like it: Because Pose focuses on the Black and Latino LGBTQ community in the middle of the HIV/AIDS crisis, every single character has reason to believe that their world is ending.
For some of them, the world does end. But in the middle of their crisis, which was exacerbated by a lack of government response and social rejection by the medical establishment, the men and women of Pose find time to form families, experience joy, dress up, sing songs, and generate unyielding beauty among themselves and the people they care about. Pose is hopeful because its characters are hopeful, and their example is always a shining one.* — A.N.
29. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power
What it is: A reboot of the popular '80s cartoon She-Ra: Princess of Power.
Why we like it: Who knew a reboot of an animated show from 1985 would end up so unabashedly queer? Winner of the 2021 GLAAD Award for outstanding kids programming, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power reintroduces audiences to Adora (Aimee Carrero), a powerful teenage warrior capable of saving life on planet Etheria. Across five seasons, viewers watch as Adora takes on the Horde, an evil army of which her best friend Catra (AJ Michalka) is a part. An action-packed adventure with gender fluidity applied across the board, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is the kind of show so many LGBTQ adults wish they'd had growing up. —A.F.
30. She's Gotta Have It
What it is: A dramedy series from Spike Lee about an ambitious New York City artist.
Why we like it: Based on Lee's 1986 movie of the same name, She's Gotta Have It lives up to its ferocious title. DeWanda Wise stars as Nola Darling, a Black queer woman living her life with effervescence and tenacity. It's not perfect, but it is very fun — and contributes substantively and positively to the onscreen representation of women in non-monogamous relationships.* — A.F.
What is it: John Cena's oxymoronic villain from 2021's The Suicide Squad gets a spin-off series wherein peace is rarely the answer.
Why we like it: Superhero movies aren't known for nuanced critiques of hypermasculinity, which isn't always a bad thing. (Sometimes you just want to watch a dumb hunk fight a bunch of baddies). Peacemaker's protagonist, however, is a villain to his peers. The cognitive dissonance between Christopher Smith's unhinged savior complex and his insisting that his racist, abusive, and traumatizing upbringing forged him into a great American hero is a fascinating example of using television to extend onscreen universes. Throw in John Cena's delicate performance as an out bisexual supervillain trying to make good; Freddie Stroma performing acutely romantic worship as Peacemaker's sidekick, Vigilante; and Danielle Brooks leading as the queer daughter of a big-time DC movie character (to say who is a spoiler) — you've got a show that every superhero fan needs to see. As long as they're over 18 and don't mind heads exploding all over the place. — A.N.
32. Feel Good
What it is: A British dramedy about a lesbian romance.
Why we like it: At the heart of Feel Good is the painfully intimate relationship of Mae and George, played by Mae Martin and Charlotte Ritchie. The two-season series started in the UK on Channel 4, but was later picked up by Netflix, bringing these characters' charming romance to the global stage. You'll fall in love with their warmth as well as their imperfections, relating to universal themes of shame, acceptance, and fear against a backdrop of whip-smart dialogue and beautiful acting. — A.F.
33. Dear White People
What it is: A dramedy chronicling the lives of Black students at an elite college.
Why we like it: Based on the 2014 film of the same name, Dear White People explores issues of social justice through the lives of Black students at Winchester University. It's a well-to-do undergraduate school that doubles as the perfect backdrop for the series' biting satire, which takes aim at everything from racial inequality to sexual assault. As a matter of queer representation, Dear White People broke barriers by including multiple Black LGBTQ characters in its main cast and following up with authentic storylines that are just as praise-worthy. — A.F.
34. Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story
What is it: A Bridgerton prequel looking into the life of a young Queen Charlotte (India Amarteifio).
Why we like it: Apart from its tear-jerking main love story (arguably Bridgerton's best so far), Queen Charlotte shines with an equally abundant queer relationship that honestly steals the show. A first for Bridgerton, Queen Charlotte features the gay relationship between two side characters, Reynolds (Freddie Dennis) and the one and only Brimsley (Sam Clemmett). They're adorable. They're absolutely hilarious. And they're partners in mischief with indisputable chemistry and a swoon-worthy relationship that's equal parts laughs and yes, tears. — Y.H.
Where to watch: Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story is streaming on Netflix.
35. Sex Education
What it is: A YA dramedy about the students of Moordale Secondary School.
Why we like it: When it comes to onscreen sex and relationships, Sex Education provides critical representation across the board. Created by Laurie Nunn, this coming-of-age Netflix dramedy centers on students at a UK secondary school struggling to understand their emerging identities. This show depicts not just homosexual and heterosexual relationships well, but also considers asexuality with care and grace. Stars Asa Butterfield, Ncuti Gatwa, and Emma Mackey are instantly likable, with their magnetic performances backed by a diverse cast of uniquely relatable characters. — A.F.
What it is: A Spanish-language thriller following the students of Las Encinas.
Why we like it: Elite has a massive fanbase scattered across the globe, but if you're an English speaker, it's possible you haven’t watched the Spanish series yet. You should absolutely right that wrong this Pride Month. Full of LGBTQ relationships you'll want to root for, Elite is as inclusive and sex-positive as it is soapy and ridiculous. Come for the promise of solid LGBTQ and polyamorous representation, stay for the ludicrous drama you will binge from start to finish. — A.F.
37. Queer Eye
What it is: A reality makeover series rebooting the popular series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.
Why we like it: Since premiering their show in 2018, Tan France, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness, and Antoni Porowski have become internationally recognized gurus of lifestyle improvement. Rebooting a concept first done by Bravo in the early aughts, this new Fab Five offers modern viewers their expertise in areas ranging from cooking to grooming, along with their insight into what sometimes holds us back from living our best lives. Queer Eye isn't a perfect show by any means, but its feel-good vibes and positive fanbase make it one we'll always come back to. — A.F.
38. Work in Progress
What it is: A comedy about a queer woman struggling with mental health.
Why we like it: In her semi-autobiographical comedy, Abby McEnany plays herself at her lowest point. Convinced she's responsible for killing her therapist, Abby begins a painful journey of self-reflection that leads her to conclude her life isn't worth living. But when a handsome trans man (played by Theo Germaine) enters her life, an uproariously funny and uplifting chain of events occurs. You'll love the honest advice this series gives about finding reasons to get up everyday. — A.F.
39. The Other Two
What it is: A scorching satire about Hollywood, fame, and hangers-on.
Why we like it: When a teen dream becomes a pop sensation, what is that like for his way less successful older siblings? Created by Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider, The Other Two focuses on aspiring actor Cary Dubek (Drew Tarver) and failed dancer Brooke Dubek (Heléne Yorke), who spiral hard as their kid bother Chase Dream (Case Walker) skyrockets.
Every episode is packed with outrageous humor targeting show business, work/life balance, and the gay dating scene. And things only get wilder as the series goes on, getting more surreal, turning journalists into vampires, forgotten forces into ghosts, and more. Plus, the ensemble boasts the incredible comedic talents of Molly Shannon, Wanda Sykes, Brandon Scott Jones, Ken Marino, and She-Hulk hunk Josh Segarra. — K.P.
Where to watch: The Other Two Season is now streaming on Max.
