June is Pride Month and that means networks and streaming services are presenting some brand new LGBTQ+ content. Whether exclusively LGBTQ+ stories or simply shows and movies from LGBTQ+ creators and stars, there’s plenty to celebrate. These include returning series and new series launches, specials and broadcasts of real world events.

Be sure to check streaming service LGBTQ+ hubs for access to Pride worthy content previously released. And not just the likes of Netflix, Prime, Hulu, HBO Max, or Paramount+, but Shudder has LGBTQ+ horror content like Boulet Brothers Present Dragula, the documentary Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street, and everybody’s favorite scream queen in Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.

Showtime is offering first seasons of The L Word, The L Word: Generation Q, Work In Progress and more for free in June. Also free, Freevee has movies like But I’m a Cheerleader and series like Project Runway.
