The Top 10 Most Popular LGBTQ+ Shows On Netflix According To The Numbers May Surprise You

The streaming giant finally released the number of viewers each show got this year and the results are not what we expected!

One of Hollywood’s complaints amid the Writers Guild and SAG-AFTRA strikes was that the streaming services refused to publicize their viewership numbers. Now, Netflix has announced that they will begin releasing this data twice a year, starting with details of their most-watched content from January to June of 2023, and the data is surprising!

We weren’t shocked to see shows like Wednesday, The Outer Banks, and You at the top of the list, but we were pleasantly surprised to see some LGBTQ+ representation there, too. Both Ginny & Georgia and Queen Charlotte made it into the top 10, and series like XO Kitty and Shadow and Bone did well too, but we were equally surprised to see that some beloved queer shows didn’t even break the top 500. The Spanish teen soap opera Elite and the action-packed Warrior Nun were below 600 on the list.

With so many more queer shows raking in viewers than would have ever been possible even a decade ago, let’s hope Hollywood studios having access to these numbers encourages to invest more in series with LGBTQ+ representation. If they could stop cancelling our favorite queer shows that would be great, too.

Check out the top 10 queer TV shows on Netflix, according to the data!"
