From stories about harrowing queer experiences (“The Miseducation of Cameron Post”) to films that are themselves harrowing queer experiences (hello, “TÁR”), Peacock has a reasonably decent LGBTQ offering amid the annual spring sprint to promote queer content before Pride in June.

Peacock’s selection of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer-inclusive movies and TV shows is not nearly as robust as the other catalogues on competing services, Hulu, Netflix, and Prime Video. And it’s an even further cry from the plethora of original gay content at HBO — which is still the only competitor in the streaming wars brandishing a critically acclaimed comedy about gay pirates.

But at least a handful of the LGBTQ stories currently available on Peacock are good enough to consider visiting the service, even if you’re not usually there perusing its stockpile of middling NBC sitcoms. On the TV side, “We Are Lady Parts” stands out as a must-watch series about five women and their punk band, recommended by IndieWire’s Steve Greene.

“Playful with enough flair and distinct twists to shake up its more familiar pieces, ‘We Are Lady Parts’ is an energetic merging of aspiring artists and the fictional frame that presents them,” he wrote in his review. “For Lady Parts, those harmonies aren’t always tidy: they’re a punk quartet filling up any kind of rehearsal space with as much sound as the room can handle.”

As for films, you could of course check out the Cate Blanchett starring “TÁR”: a harrowing psychological thriller about a lesbian orchestra conductor that dominated queer film discussion in 2022. Or you could go further off the beaten path and try “Porcupine Lake”: a 2017 romance and coming-of-age story from filmmaker Ingrid Veninger that screened at TIFF that year.

Listed in no particular order, here are 8 of the best TV shows and movies currently available for you to stream on Peacock in April 2023. For more LGBTQ film recommendations, check out IndieWire’s guide to the best of the 21st century.
