As we wrap up Pride month, we here at The TV Junkies wanted to take a look at our favorite LGBTQ characters, old and new. From the ones who were there at the very beginning, to the ones that are still keeping us on the edge of our seats today, we have come a long way since Ellen bravely said, “I’m gay” to an entire airport. Now we have characters all over, from network to streaming to cable. While we do have some growing to do when it comes to representation, we’ve come such a long way in the past two decades. To celebrate, here are our favorite LGBTQ characters that changed the game for representation on TV.
Of course there are so many LGBTQ characters that we couldn’t include them all. Have a favorite that wasn’t mentioned? Sound off in the comments below!
