Happy Pride month from Must TV!

To celebrate, we’re bringing you six of our favourite LGBTQ+ shows, including everyone’s favourite makeover show, a series from the director of Call Me By Your Name, two Russell T Davies treats and a couple of period dramas.

5 Seasons Netflix 42 x 50 mins
Queer Eye should really be called Teary Eyed, because after watching an episode of this, there won’t be a Dry Eye left in the house.
Score: 8.8
1 Season BBC iPlayer 3 x 60 mins
In our minds A Very English Scandal would be someone putting the milk in before the hot water when making a cup of tea, or going over 24 hours without mentioning the weather. But here it’s something much more fun: a plot to murder.
Score: 9.1
1 Season All4 5 x 50 mins
Russell T Davies is taking us back to the 80s, the decade of pop music, parties, huge hair... and the AIDS epidemic. This heart-breaking, joyful series follows a group of LGBT friends throughout the decade, with laughter and love sitting front and centre.
Score: 9.0

2 Seasons BBC iPlayer, Netflix 18 x 50 mins
This series takes us back to 1980s New York City, where large hair and shoulder pads rule above ground, whilst underground it’s all about vogueing, wigs and drag mothers. Grab your coat – we’re going to the ball daaaahling.
Score: 9.0
1 Season BBC iPlayer 8 x 60 mins
Suranne Jones is breaking all sorts in this show – hearts, stereotypes, and the fourth wall. Which is quite something for a period drama.
Score: 8.5
1 Season BBC iPlayer 8 x 60 mins
Director Luca Guadagnino’s 2017 film had millennials crying their eyes out. And Guadagnino is back at it again, this time making Gen Z reach for the tissues
Score: 7.4
