Amazon Prime Exclusive has a released a new Spanish Teen horror drama mystery show that features gay, lesbian, and bi characters. However, no gay content, a brief bi encounter on screen, and - of course - lesbian romance between two young girls. The gays have some non-gay related screen time.

However, the show has so many hot guys, a lot of shirtless scenes, a few brief ass shots and the overall drama, horror and mystery is pretty great.

Netflix's The Irregulars has a gay character twist.

The show can be described as a teen version of Penny Dreadful with a bit of Doctor Who in it. Maybe even some Bidgerton if you consider its diverse cast.

Lesbians are a dime a dozen these days. Easier to list shows that DON'T have some lesbian character somewhere in there.

I was surprised that the animated "The Great North" show on FOX Sundays had a matter-of-fact, no-big-deal gay teen storyline, where this girl has a crush on this new guy, and asks him to the equivalent to the Sadie Hawkins dance, but he only has eyes for her brother, and when she goes to the bathroom at the dance, the new guy and the brother hook up and make out on the dance floor. Nobody says a thing about it other than the girl being upset her "date" likes someone else.

I was kind of impressed by that. Of course, since then, they haven't really touched on that character's sexuality and the 'new guy' hasn't really been seen much since. But still.

R3, I just binged the whole 8 episode first season this weekend. It's a nice enough mystery show but is pretty slim on the gay and lesbian front. I mean there's little there but people shouldn't expect much. I enjoyed the show for the mystery and for the hot guys, and actually probably the hottest and the nastiest man in the show is gay, although he has zero gay scenes. Still, it gave his character depth.

I assume the leads were meant to be teenagers but at least some, like Manuel and Paul, are played by people in their mid 20s, and that's just fine by me. BTW, the show is classified for 16+ here so it's not exactly a teen show.

A special mention for the many VPL's of Joel Bosqued who plays a music teacher. It's so rare to see proper trouser snakes on TV shows these days that I had to take a second look when he showed it the first time.

Amazon's animated series Invincible has a gay character. He is pretty much a gay version of Stiles from MTV's Teen Wolf, the non-super human BFF sidekick of the lead (a frustrated teen who has a superhero as dad).

It's a pretty funny show.

Netflix's Shadow & Bone

SPOILER: The gunslinger Jesper, Kit Young, makes out with a stable boy in episode 5.

Watching Who Killed Sara reminded me of another tv show from Mexico with a gay storyline. El Juego De Las Llaves is an Amazon prime show from Mexico. Valentin is the hot gay character. It ended with him getting fucked on a pool table and his wife walking in on them.

I knew it had been renewed for season 2 but hadn't heard anything else, so I googled it. Apparently season 2 doesn't have a premiere date, just that it will be sometime in 2021. The article also talked about a season 3, so I assume it's been renewed for at least two more seasons. PS: it also features Maite Perroni, famous from RBD. She's a queen. Love her.

Here is the trailer for season 1.

Hap and Leonard, on Netflix.

One of the main characters is gay, with a boyfriend. And yes, they fuck.

This summer should be good. A couple of weeks until the second season of Love Victor, then there's the Gossip Girl reboot in July.

One of the minor characters in Panic is gay and making out with a guy in episode four. The show has some hot male eye candy with Mike Faist, Ray Nicholson, Bryce Cass (13 Reasons Why), Jordan Elsass (from Superman and Lois) and hot daddy Enrique Murciano.

Don't know if it counts, but Netflix's campy soap The House of Flowers is back as a movie special.
