The last time we updated this list, we wrote how LGBTQ community-gathering spaces were largely put on pause by the pandemic — which meant that those once-in-person spaces became our streaming platforms and technical devices at home. But with Pride month 2022 in full swing, and the pandemic seemingly in some kind of rearview, it feels like queer storytelling and community are back and more galvanized than ever.

We’ve put together a list including Netflix original series and films as well as movies the streamer is hosting for the time being. There’s a range here of popular titles — really just the tip of the iceberg — and lesser-known gems, which can be overwhelming to navigate amid Netflix’s mysterious algorithm.

Here are 30 of the best LGBTQ movies and TV shows on Netflix available for Pride Month 2022.

Samantha Bergeson, Kate Erbland, Proma Khosla, and Christian Zilko contributed to this story.
