We may have a bit more freedom now, but you’re sure to be glued to your sofa when there’s this much queer content you could be streaming this July. 🌈 

The Half Of It

You may have already caught The Half Of It when it hit Netflix back in May, but it’s definitely worth mentioning in case you missed it. 

“When smart but cash-strapped teen Ellie Chu agrees to write a love letter for a jock, she doesn’t expect to become his friend — or fall for his crush.”

“The Umbrella Academy revolves around the escapades of a dysfunctional family of adopted siblings who all just so happen to have superpowers. Made to don matching uniforms and fight the forces of evil by their father/benefactor, the children become known across the world as the titular Umbrella Academy.

Little Fires Everywhere

With not one, but two queer storylines, you’re seriously missing out if you don’t binge watch this incredible eight-part drama series. 

“Based on Celeste Ng’s 2017 bestseller, Little Fires Everywhere follows the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. The story explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger in believing that following the rules can avert disaster.”

Killing Eve – Season Three

Okay, unless you’ve been living under a rock, we’re pretty sure you will have already watched season three of Killing Eve, but we’re just making sure. 

“Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.”

I May Destroy You

I May Destroy You is a British comedy-drama television series created, written, co-directed, and executive produced by the powerhouse that is Michaela Coel. It has already amassed rave reviews from critics and we think everyone should be watching it.

“If you can’t remember it, how could you consent? Resisting the label of sexual assault victim, Arabella takes on the painful, freeing climb to who she could be.”

Season two of the psychological thriller Homecoming, starring Janelle Monáe and with a queer storyline? Yes please! 

“The critically-acclaimed series Homecoming returns for its second season with a fresh new mystery and an exciting new star, Janelle Monáe. Her character wakes in a rowboat adrift a lake with no memory of how she got there – or even who she is.”

Disclosure: Trans Lives On Screen

Coming at a time where we need positive trans representation more than ever, Disclosure is the perfect watch to make you feel exhilarated by the social movement within Hollywood. 

“Disclosure is an unprecedented, eye-opening look at transgender depictions in film and television, revealing how Hollywood simultaneously reflects and manufactures our deepest anxieties about gender. Leading trans thinkers and creatives, including Laverne Cox, Lilly Wachowski, Yance Ford, Mj Rodriguez, Jamie Clayton, and Chaz Bono, share their reactions and resistance to some of Hollywood’s most beloved moments.”

Dating Amber

“Dating Amber is a poignant yet hilarious look at the highs and lows of teenage life where the only way to fit in is to not be yourself. Set in Ireland during the mid-90s, two closeted teenagers, Eddie and Amber, decide to stage a relationship in order to stop everyone speculating about their sexuality. However, their arrangement begins to fall apart, forcing Eddie deeper into denial as Amber realises that a perilous future awaits her best friend unless she intervenes.”

We can only apologise for how long it has taken for us to appreciate the beauty that is Shrill. This hilarious comedy starring Aidy Bryant and Lolly Adefope is seriously underrated and now is the perfect time to get obsessed since season three has just been confirmed! 

“Annie’s done being a wallflower. No longer playing down to expectations of fat women, she vows to love herself, whether or not her hook-ups, colleagues and family feel the same.”

One for the cool kids. 

“Betty, the six-episode series from writer-director Crystal Moselle, follows a group of young, female skaters around New York. It’s a continuation of 2018’s Skate Kitchen, a pseudo-documentary that followed the real Skate Kitchen, a collective of six or so women skateboarders, who all played fictionalised versions of themselves. The show follows the group as they try to find their own place in the male-dominated world of skateboarding.”
