If You Can Identify 50% Of These Recent LGBTQ+ TV Shows From One Image, You Must Have a Really Comfortable Couch

It’s that time again — match game trivia time! This month I challenge you to identify a plethora of shows with LGBTQ+ characters that have aired within the last five years — this includes shows that concluded their runs within the last five years even if they began at some earlier year. There are some great shows in here and also some mediocre shows in here but either way we get to play a game and that is always a win!

  1. 30 in 3 minutes. Definitely spend too much time on tumblr because I’ve only seen maybe 5 of these shows and the rest I’ve ‘watched’ through osmosis on my dashboard

  2. Whew! Thought maybe my 30 meant I’m a weirdo who watches way too much tv, but read through these comments and realized I’m a weirdo who should probably watch a little more

  3. 23/33 Not too bad considering I haven’t watched most of these shows. More than half of the ones I got right I identify because of references from the internet.
    I have to say though, I need to watch more shows with wlw.
