This is a list of about being LGBT and/or containing LGBT characters and/or made by LGBT people that other LGBT people might like to distract them from the horror of the universe. At present I’ve seen or read all of these. That’s why it’s a short list. Please note some of these stories have ensemble casts and lots of parts or episodes; they don’t all have 100% queer people 100% of the time. They are still excellent stories and I’ve included them for a reason. Please consume responsibly and keeps those creators in a job.
