Another Pride Month is upon us and if you want to celebrate it by watching some new LGBT-themed shows, you’ll have many amazing options to choose from. Instead of going back to the old classics, get ready to discover some new shows that everyone is raving about right now.
Based on the graphic novel by Alice Oseman, Heartstopper became an instant hit since premiering on Netflix this spring. It’s one of the most heartwarming coming-of-age LGBT+ shows in recent memory and it follows a budding romance between a popular rugby player and his shy classmate.
Hacks follows a down-on-her-luck comedy writer, who becomes a head writer for the legendary Las Vegas stand-up comedian. The show received praise for advancing bisexual representation on TV and Season 2 even features a hilarious episode taking place on a lesbian cruise.
Our Flag Means Death
Our Flag Means Death is a quirky comedy taking place during the Golden Age of Piracy with a surprising LGBT+ twist. It received praise for featuring several notable queer relationships, including the one between its two main characters—Stede Bonnet and Blackbeard.
