Gays are excited about upcoming 2019 TV shows, including gay cartoons

Steven Universe: The Movie will appear on the Cartoon Network on Sept. 2. The cartoon will include TV's first same-sex wedding on children's programming.

Below are the 34 television shows that are exciting the homosexual community this fall season, four of them animations.

Taylor Henderson of PRIDE expressed his joy in a recent online article. “A new fall TV season is upon us. And with it comes so many amazing shows with so many amazing LGBTQ+ characters and storylines!” he writes.

Leading the gay-themed parade is Netflix, with 18 shows. HBO comes in at a distant second with four shows.

Most surprising, the list is void of any network broadcasting shows. One of most blatant gay television series on network TV last season was Instinct, starring Alan Cumming. But it was canceled a week ago after only two seasons, averaging just 3.4 million weekly viewers.

PRIDE describes the LGBTQ shows with vibrant and excited language.  Years and Years (HBO) is defined as an “epic gay love story for the ages.”  The animated series She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (Netflix) is not only described as “family-friendly,” but praised for featuring some of “the most loveable queer characters on television right now.”

Another animated series, Steven Universe: The Movie, which will appear on the Cartoon Network Sept. 2, is described as having “groundbreaking LGBTQ television moments.”  It includes TV’s first homosexual wedding on children programming.

Transsexuals get some story time as well with When They See Us (Netflix); while sexual fluidity finds time on MTV’s Are You The One?

The list below is not all-inclusive of gay characters on television and is missing some better-known shows featuring LGBTQ characters, such as Billions on Showtime and Schitt’s Creek on POP TV. Then again, it’s hard to find a cable or streaming service that doesn’t feature gay characters.
