We wanted to highlight a few of the TV programs that celebrate LGBTQ+-identified people though believable character development and intriguing storylines. Watch these, and find even more fabulous content all month long with DIRECTV On Demand channel 1000 (Subscription required).

Pose is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York’s underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980’s. Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles.

‘Gentleman Jack’

If you like a queer period drama, this one’s for you. Set in 1832 Yorkshire, England, this show tells the story of Anne Lister (Suranne Jones) and is inspired by the real-life landowner and industrialist and her life as a butch-presenting gay woman when it was nowhere near acceptable to be either.

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’

It’s not enough that RuPaul herself is a sickening host, but the parade of goddesses that work their way through RuPaul’s Drag Race each season, keep us all simply dying for more fashion, looks and, of course, drama.

‘The Equalizer’

Speaking of queens, The Equalizer, starring Queen Latifah gives us the vigilante guardian angel the world needs right now. The former CIA operative and single mother displays a believable balance of empathy and strength, and Latifah is absolutely perfect for the role. And watching a black, lesbian woman simply dominate as the show’s star makes it all the more worthwhile.

‘Steven Universe’

For a charmingly whimsical animated show about half-human, half-gem superheroes, Steven Universe breaks down many antiquated walls. First, the children’s series doesn’t conform as simply a “boy” or “girl” show, showcasing strong and inspirational characters across the spectrum. It also covers real issues that affect children all over the country (and world), including consent, trauma, relationships and so much more.
