Happy Pride Month! In 2022, there is far more to choose from when finding television series and films that explore LGBTQ+ stories. We want to share a list of insightful, entertaining and noteworthy shows and movies for you to watch during Pride Month.

Historically, LGBTQ+ stories were not shown in media. Storytelling has since evolved into a variety of impactful series and films that represent the underrepresented. It may seem like we have made great strides in entertainment, but there is still a long way to go.

More streaming companies are doing their due diligence to support LGBTQ+ stories, especially throughout the month of June, which is Pride Month. Companies like Netflix, Peacock and Amazon Prime have sections on their platforms specifically dedicated to the stories surrounding the LGBTQ+ community.

Our hope is that one day these stories involving LGBTQ+ characters will be like any other love story. One day the LGBTQ+ focused stories that are seemingly unusual to heterosexuals will feel inclusive to everyone. The reality is that people in this community don’t feel any different than their heterosexual counterparts. It’s society that makes them feel excluded.

We continue to change the narrative by celebrating the variety of content across platforms, which magnify LGBTQ+ stories.
