The Best LGBTQ Series on HBO Max, from ‘Veneno’ to ‘It’s a Sin’

We've come a long way since "Sex and the City," but these shows prove HBO is always a leader in queer entertainment.




The network formerly just known as HBO may have taken a lover’s last name, but there’s no hiding that fact that HBO Max still has some of the best TV shows around. In the ever-shifting streamer landscape, it can be exhausting to navigate a different user experience each time you want to watch something. And surprisingly, for the network that brought us “Six Feet Under” and “Sex and the City,” HBO Max does not have an LGBTQ tag to filter its offerings. In the absence of a dedicated category, let this list serve as a guide for the queer TV-phile — quality control included.

But HBO has never forgotten queer audiences, as its more recent offerings prove. Between “Euphoria,” “Veneno” and “It’s a Sin,” all of which we highlight here, HBO has produced some of the best queer TV shows of the last few years. Here’s a list of some of the hits, eminently binge-able and delightfully queer.
