Come with my on a journey into the best of what HBO Max has to offer fans of lesbian, bisexual and queer television.
April’s gonna be great everybody! Season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale, a new girls-on-the-run Japanese lesbian film, Kate Winslet as a detective with a gay daughter, Season 2 of The Circle, Season 2 of The Black Lady Sketch Show, a new misanthropic queer show from Australia and so much more!
If Euphoria is a teen show for teens, then HBO Max’s Genera+ion feels like a teen show for middle schoolers. And I think that’s great.
We’ve got Josie Totah in a movie about ‘zines vs. misogyny, Anna Camp as a terminally ill lesbian, HBO’s buzzy “high schoolers explore their sexuality” series “Genera+ion”, a dystopian dating app drama, the bad lesbian dinosaur movie and so much more!
It’s as entertaining as any heist movie, as addictive as the best true crime, and authentic in a way few pieces of mainstream trans media have been before.
What’s new with LGBTQ characters on HBO Max, Amazon, Hulu and Netflix this month? Let’s find out together!
All I’ve wanted since Euphoria began was for Sam Levinson to write with people who actually have the characters’ perspectives — this episode shows why.
What’s new and queer this month on streaming networks? We’ve got a new season of Dickinson, a Fran Lebowitz special, Anna Pacquin as a hot bisexual mess in Flack, Root and Shaw, a movie called “So My Grandma’s a Lesbian!” and so much more!
For me, what makes the show so unique are the moments Valeria spends with Cristina and Paca and all the other trans women around them. It’s watching this cross-generational support among trans women that’s so important for us but so rarely portrayed on screen.
I ship Zendaya’s Rue and Hunter Schafer’s Jules like some people shipped Brittana.
December on HBO Max, Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime has everything: Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, a Euphoria special, troubled girls stranded on a desert island and so much more.
HBO Max has queer women all over its impressive slate of films, including biopics like Bessie and Gia; documentaries about DADT and Billie Jean King; and lesbian classics like Desert Hearts.
Are they dating, are they in love, are they having sex, are they best friends? It’s one of We Are Who We Are ‘s queerest pleasures that it’s not about definition.
November 2020 is a big month for homoerotic ’90s movies on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon and HBO Max as well as the much-anticipated lesbian rom-com “Happiest Season” starring Kristen Stewart on Hulu!
In HBO Max’s LGBTQ documentary “Equal”; Samira Wiley, Jamie Clayton, Isis King, Shannon Purser, Heather Matarazzo, Theo Germaine and more embody key historical figures in the pre-Stonewall fight for LGBTQ rights and visibility.
Everything streaming with queer women and trans characters in October, including hot women in space and a docuseries starring all your favorites.
I guess what I’m learning about myself is that I’m not quite cut out for these slow-moving, period piece crime dramas. I like my crime shows to be procedural — if there are eight episodes, I want eight crimes. And I like my women front and center, thank you very much.
By pairing a visceral portrayal with thorough descriptions of OCD, “Pure” becomes a teaching tool as well as a delightful dramedy. It’s also just a really good and gay story about a 20-something trying to figure out how to be a good person.
What’s new to stream in September 2020 on Netflix, Amazon, HBO Max and Hulu that also has lesbian, bisexual or queer women characters or is otherwise relevant to your interests?
Samira Wiley, Jamie Clayton, Theo Germaine, Heather Matarazzo and so many more are coming together to tell the stories of the early days of the LGBTQ civil rights movement in the U.S.
So often, when you’re single, especially if you’ve been single for a long time, people will give you the same empty platitudes. You just haven’t met the right person yet, you’ll find love when you’re not looking for it, you have to love yourself before anyone else can love you, etc. But this show takes those sentiments and clicks a new lens into place over them.
