Eric and Adam - Sex Education Season 3 - Netflix Shows

sex education

So what I really enjoy sex education is that it features multiple LGBTQ+ characters and relationships. It’s just one of the weirdest teen shows ever and I love it! In the teen series, an openly gay character was involved in a love triangle with two boys, something we haven’t seen much on TV. The love triangle trope is usually reserved for straight couples, so it was exciting to see it being used for queer characters. There is also a queer couple consisting of a pansexual woman and a bisexual woman that is rarely shown on television. In Season 3, viewers are introduced to a non-binary character and we get to see her story. There is a lack of representation for the non-binary community in the media, so it was exciting to see that representation sex education.


elite is another Netflix show that features multiple LGBTQ+ characters and relationships. The teen series follows the lives of students at a prestigious secondary school in Spain. There’s romance, drama, murder and more drama. It’s arguably one of the best teen series on Netflix. One of the most important couples that many people fell in love with was Rebe and Mencia. There was just so much chemistry between them that you couldn’t help but love that they were together. There is also the relationship between Omar and Ander. They experience many ups and downs in their relationship but you know they are soul mates. And we can’t forget Patrick, the openly gay teenager who has no problem causing trouble for other characters. You should definitely stop by elite this Pride Month if you haven’t already.

Orange is the new black

You cannot have and not include a list of the best LGBTQ+ Netflix shows Orange is the new black. When the comedy-drama series premiered on Netflix in 2013, it was an instant hit. People fell in love with Piper and Alex’s relationship. Although there was plenty of betrayal and drama between the two, you knew that Piper and Alex genuinely loved each other. Another cute queer couple on the show were Poussey and Soso. It was exciting to watch their love story unfold. Then there were other amazing LGBTQ+ characters like openly lesbian Nicky Nichols and transgender woman Sophia Burset. In case you’ve already watched orange is the new black Chances are it’s been a while since you’ve seen it. So what better time to revisit the series than now?

Teenage bounty hunters

The cancellation of Teenage bounty hunters hurts me to this day. This show had so much potential, but unfortunately Netflix didn’t see it. From enemies to lovers, we all love a good story, and Teenage bounty hunters exactly assuming. The show follows two teenage twin sisters, Sterling and Blair, who secretly become bounty hunters to pay for their truck repairs.

Sterling’s sexuality is never really defined because viewers are introduced to her when she has a boyfriend. However, she begins to develop feelings for her ex-girlfriend and enemy April. It later turns out that April also harbored feelings for Sterling. As with any enemy-to-lover story, there were some bumps along the way for the young couple. Although the show only had one season, we still recommend watching it as there are many sweet moments between Sterling and April throughout the season.
