LGBTQ movies and series have been getting more recognition in the last few years with streaming sites and companies like Netflix, Universal Pictures, Disney, and Peacock investing more in LGBTQ representation in Hollywood.

Since Orange Is The New Black and Pose came out, transgender representation in film has been the main talking point, this year we saw Hollywood fully explore young trans love with the movie Anything's Possible.

Whether it is trans representation or general LGBTQIA representation, we are looking forward to queer visibility in mainstream media in 2023.

Here are the 5 LGBTQ movies and shows from 2022:
