The people who make up the community to the spaces where they congregate, both online and off, are just some of the things that are explored by Mashable in celebration of Pride Month.

There are many forms of LGBTQ TV. Some of our modern favorites are available on streaming. We searched through a number of video providers and found a collection of great titles we will be watching or rewatching this June.

We have a wide range of family comedies, drag queen drama, queer romance, and kid-friendly adventures.

The best LGBTQ TV shows are here.

1. Our Flag Means Death

Taika Waititi is the author of a historical fiction that features him as the pirate Blackbeard.

What do we not like about it? Our Flag Means Death is a bait-and-switch masterpiece that entices the audience in with the comedy of Waititi's anachronistic writing set against the Golden Age of Piracy and the revelation that OFMD is a gay romantic comedy. Our Flag Means Death is a show that treats the near-ubiquitous queer romances of its cast with humor, respect, and often stunning tenderness.

Our Flag Means Death is available on the internet.

2. Legendary

A ballroom in full swing

Credit: HBO Max

A reality competition series about voguing and ballroom culture.

The once-underground world of ballroom is explored in Legendary, with dance icon Dashaun Wesley serving as master of ceremonies. Dance teams come together across two seasons to meet the performance and fashion challenges of judges. It is an essential preservation of LGBTQ culture, but it is also one of the most jaw-droppingly spectacular reality series out there. The talent on display is inspiring and dynamic, so you will probably do some voguing of your own.

There is a streaming service for Legendary.

3. Everything's Gonna Be Okay

A dramedy series that centers on an Australian man raising his American teen stepsisters in the wake of their father's death.

Josh Thomas plays a neurotic but lovable Josh Moss in a fish-out-of-water scenario where culture clashes, generation gaps, and sibling rivalries collide to hilarious effect. In Everything's Gonna Be Okay, Josh's boyfriend, anxious little sister, and music genius are also explored. This brilliantly empathetic comedy explores coming of age, queerness, asexuality, and the true meaning of family.

Everything's Gonna Be Okay is available to watch on Hulu.

4. Schitt's Creek

A rich family is forced to move to a rural town in a sitcom.

Sorry, but just watch Schitt's Creek is what we like about it. Not only is this series one of the most enjoyable viewing experiences in modern memory, but it also offers a moving and nuanced look at LGBTQ love that allows a gay couple to serve as the main romantic storyline. Enjoy every minute of the perfect romance between Dan Levy and Noah Reid.

Schitt's Creek is available on the internet.

5. The Owl House

The show is about a human girl who gets stuck in the demon realm and learns magic from a charismatic witch.

The Owl House is a show that celebrates individuality and is in line with other animated shows such as Steven Universe and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Luz Noceda, the show's main character, is openly queer and in a relationship with her former rival Amity. The Owl House introduced Disney's first-ever nonbinary character: bard Raine Whispers. There is no understating the impact the show has had on audiences. Its devoted fans make it a trend on the social networking site when a new episode comes out. The power of Lumity.

The Owl House is on Disney+.

The L Word was a popular aughts dramedy.

From 2004 to 2009, The L Word enthralled fans with its captivating storyline of a lesbian friend group living in Los Angeles. The L Word: Generation Q is a modern take on the title that has the same caliber of juicy plotlines as the original. The stars return with newcomers Arienne Mandi and Sepideh Moafi. The series continues to increase the visibility of the LGBTQ community through a metropolitan lens.

7. RuPaul's Drag Race

A reality competition show determining who will be America's Next Drag Superstar.

The Drag Race gave a platform to queer artists all across America and the world, and we like it. Since its premiere in 2009, Drag Race has increased the visibility of issues related to the Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual community. There is a persisting sense of support and family throughout the show, even though it is a reality show. You will be in awe of these queens and their talent.

There are two ways to watch: on Paramount+ and on

8. Love, Victor

A dramedy about coming out in high school and watching a movie.

Michael Cimino is the star of the TV spinoff from Love, Simon. He is a star athlete, a model son, a great friend, and he is starting to think he might be gay.

Love, Victor is a perfect high school drama with all the sweeping musical cues and whispered secrets that entails, and its connection to the original movie is incredibly sweet.

Love, Victor is available on the streaming service.

A sci-fi drama about a powerful and diverse group of people.

Science fiction has the power to break boundaries whenever and however it's creators see fit.

An animated series about a half-gem, half-human boy being raised by the Crystal Gems, the last remnants of an alien rebellion that saved the world hundreds of years ago.

Steven Universe is a wholesome show that uses its characters and framing to casually question gender and sexuality while telling a story about love, family, and growing up. Steven Universe makes highlighting the vast and beautiful spectrum of queer love look easy.

Steven Universe is available on multiple streaming services.

The dramedy is about women in prison.

Orange Is the New Black did more for diversity behind the camera than it did for diversity in front of it. This award-winning series began as a character study of a privileged bisexual woman in a minimum-security prison. Black Lives Matter, immigration, trans rights, and more were included in the series. These stories were told with authentic voices in the director's chair and writers room, which makes them all the more special.

Orange Is the New Black is available on the internet.

A drama about teenagers growing up in California.

It is not for the faint of heart, but Sam Levinson's Euphoria takes the teen drama to terrifying new heights. This neon-soaked series profiles the increasingly strange world in which children grow up, starring Zendaya as a young addiction and Hunter Schafer as her just-as-troubled love interest. The narrative is full of personal stories of sexual self-discovery, as well as numerous LGBTQ plotlines. It's a must-watch because of the performances by Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, and more.

The Joker threatens Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn.

What it is: An animated Batman spinoff series that follows Harley Quinn as she re-evaluates her life after her break-up with the Batman.

The show is a show with hidden delights. Kaley Cuoco plays Harley, but her main crew is Poison Ivy, Clayface, Doctor Psycho, King Shark, and Frank the Plant. Constantly surprising viewers with complex, nuanced considerations of life and love while also delivering gigantic laughs, Harley Quinn's combo of wild plot twists, tender handling of queer relationships, and riotously hilarious send-ups of the classic Batman rogue's gallery easily make it one of the funniest films of

A reality show where members of a small town's queer community are transformed into drag performers.

We're Here shows the stories of queer people living in rural towns across America, using drag to amplify their voices and proudly assert their presence in places where they aren't always accepted. It makes it clear that drag is for everyone, no matter their gender. To top it all off, the hosts put on a drag show at the end of every episode. What is not to love?

A sitcom about two gay men, their ex- wives, and their children.

The world is a better place because of Grace. In the spring of 2015, this beloved sitcom came into our lives and has provided us with a great deal of comfort viewing ever since. Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen are in a movie about a couple who decide to come out after years of hiding. The series is anchored by the journey of self-acceptance and friendship of the burned ex- wives of the pair. Grace and Frankie has spurred important conversations across generations, imbuing what could have been a boring story with progressive ideology and genuine love.

17. Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts

Children on a landscape of post-apocalypse.

Credit: Netflix

An animated series about an optimistic young girl braving the dangers of a post- apocalyptic Earth overrun with animals.

It's not often that an animated show will have a character say "I'm gay" in front of a younger audience. In the show's first season, one of the series' leads comes out to another person. The show embraces queerness and his later romance with another human survivor is equally lovely. This series has gorgeous animation, a killer soundtrack, and frog who wear snazzy suits. Belen Edwards, Entertainment Reporter, asked why you weren't watching already.

There is a movie called "Kilo and the Age of Wonderbeasts" on the streaming service.

18. Pose

The drama is set in New York City's ballroom scene of the 1980s.

Because Pose focuses on the Black and Latino LGBTQ community in the middle of the HIV/AIDS crisis, every single character has reason to believe that their world is ending.

The world does end for some of them. In the midst of their crisis, the men and women of Pose find time to form families, experience joy, dress up, sing songs, and generate unyielding beauty amongst themselves and the people they care about.

The Pose Seasons are available to watch on the internet.

The She-Ra: Princess of Power cartoon was a hit in the 1980's.

Who knew a remake of an animated show from 1985 would end up being so queer? She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is the winner of the GLAAD Award for outstanding kids programming. The Horde is an evil army of which Adora's best friend Catra is a part. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is a show that many people wish they had seen as a child.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power can be watched on the internet.

20. She's Gotta Have It

Our favorite LGBTQ series to watch during Pride Credit: David Lee / Netflix

Spike Lee is making a dramedy series about an ambitious New York City artist.

The 1986 movie of the same name, She's gotta Have It, lives up to its ferocious title. Nola Darling is a Black queer woman living her life with effervescence and tenacity. It is fun and contributes to the representation of women in non-monogamous relationships.

You can watch She's gotta Have It on the internet.

21. Peacemaker

John Cena is the Peacemaker.

Credit: Katie Yu / HBO Max

The spinoff series is about the oxymoronic villain from The Suicide Squad, who was played by John Cena.

Superhero movies aren't known for nuanced critiques of hypermasculinity, which isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes you want to watch a dumb guy fight some bad guys. The main character in Peacemaker is a villain to his peers. There is a fascinating example of using television to extend on-screen universes when you consider the cognitive dissonance between Christopher Smith and his insistence that his racist, abusive, and traumatizing upbringing forged him into a great American hero. Throw in the delicate performance by John Cena as a bisexual supervillain trying to make good, Freddie Stroma as Peacemaker's sidekick, and Danielle Brooks as the queer daughter of a big-time DC movie character. As long as they are over 18 and don't mind heads exploding all over the place.

Peacemaker is available on the internet.

22. Feel Good

The dramedy is about a lesbian romance.

Mae and George are played by Mae Martin and Charlotte Ritchie in Feel Good. The two-season series started in the UK on Channel 4, but was picked up by the streaming service. You will fall in love with their warmth as well as their flaws, relating to them about universal themes of shame, acceptance, and fear.

Feel Good is available on the internet.

23. Dear White People

Two men kiss in "Dear White People"

A dramedy about the lives of Black students at an elite college.

The film Dear White People explores issues of social justice through the lives of Black students at the university. It is a well-to-do undergraduate school that is the perfect backdrop for the series, which takes aim at everything from racial inequality to sexual assault. Dear White People broke barriers by including multiple Black LGBTQ characters in its main cast and following up with authentic storylines that are just as praise-worthy.

You can watch Dear White People on the internet.

24. Generation

Three young piece hang out

Credit: HBO Max

A teen drama about identity and sexuality in 2021.

The new series Generation is not perfect, but we like it. There is no denying the show has dazzling elements. The lead performance of Justice Smith as an out-and-proud gay jock named Chester is ridiculously watchable. The lesbian romance between characters played by Haley Sanchez and Chase Sui Wonders is straight-up sexy. We don't know about a Season 2 yet, so please enjoy this one for what it does well.

Generation is available on HBO Max.

25. Sex Education

The students of Moordale Secondary School are the focus of a dramedy.

Sex Education provides critical representation across the board when it comes to onscreen sex and relationships. Laurie Nunn's coming-of-age dramedy centers on students at a UK secondary school struggling to understand their emerging identities. The show depicts asexuality with care and grace, as well as homosexual and heterosexual relationships. Stars Asa Butterfield, Ncuti Gatwa, and Emma Mackey are instantly likable, with their magnetic performances backed by a diverse cast of uniquely relatable characters.

Sex Education is available on the internet.

26. Elite

The students of Las Encinas are being followed by a Spanish-language thriller.

If you're an English speaker, it's possible you haven't watched the Spanish series yet. This is Pride Month and you should correct that. Full of relationships you will want to root for, Elite is sex positive and inclusive. Stay for the ludicrous drama you will binge from start to finish for the promise of solid LGBTQ and polyamorous representation.

The show is on the streaming service.

27. Queer Eye

The show is a remake of the popular show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.

Since the show's premiere, Tan France, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness, and Antoni Porowski have become international experts on lifestyle improvement. The new Fab Five offers modern viewers their expertise in areas ranging from cooking to grooming, along with their insight into what sometimes holds us back from living our best lives. We will always come back to Queer Eye because of its positive vibes and feel-good vibes.

You can watch Queer Eye on the internet.

A person looks put out

Best LGBTQ TV Shows Credit: Showtime

A comedy about a queer woman.

In her comedy, she plays herself at her lowest point. She is convinced that she is responsible for the death of her therapist and begins a painful journey of self- reflection. An uproariously funny and uplifting chain of events occurs when a handsome trans man enters her life. You will love the honest advice this series gives.

Work In Progress is available to watch on Showtime.
