Let’s face it, finding LGBTQ+ representation on TV, in general, can be hard. And if you’re looking for family-friendly entertainment with queer representation, that can feel like more of a mission. But, the good news is, there are actually many shows out there (no pun intended!) to stream with your kids and we’ve gathered them all in one place for you!
While many of these shows put queer characters and storylines front and center, others are a little quieter about it. In many cases, LGBTQ+ representation comes as side characters or special guest stars. There’s also more than one instance of characters whose sexuality or gender identity are hinted at, or only revealed towards the very end of a series. But, at least on some level, we're going to call any representation a win (even as we continue to hope and push for more LGBTQ+ main characters). And we’re already pleased to note that since this article was first published, we’ve been able to update with shows that provide even more LGBTQ+ representation. And what better time than Pride month to catch up on some wholesome LGBTQ+ shows?
To get started, allow us to proudly present (get it?) 20 great options to add to your family’s watch list.
