10 Queer TV Shows To Catch Up On In 2024

To celebrate the release of DEAD BOY DETECTIVES, we thought we'd take a look at some of the best queer TV shows from the past couple of years. From gay reality tv dating shows, to hilariously dark sitcoms and queer highschool dramas that everyone should be watching - here are 10 more queer and LGBT+ inclusive TV shows available to watch in the UK right now.

(All shows available in the UK at time of publishing.)


1. DEAD BOY DETECTIVES (2024)

Based on the comics by Neil Gaiman, DEAD BOY DETECTIVES follows a group of mystery-solving teens - two of whom are dead - as they help their ghostly clients find closure and move on to the afterlife... all while trying to escape death, witches and demons. It's queer and funny, spooky and dark, and everything you want from a supernatural mystery. Perfect for fans of Buffy and Scooby-Doo (just with a few more violent deaths).


Where to watch it: Netflix

2. I KISSED A BOY/I KISSED A GIRL (2023 - present)

I KISSED A BOY is a British dating game show where ten single gay men are paired up at an Italian villa and spend several weeks getting to know each other after meeting for the first time with a kiss. It's full of drama, romance and Dannii Minogue - along with some really lovely conversations about queerness and dating. BBC3 also released the cast for the spinoff series I KISSED A GIRL this week - think the same show, but with lesbian couples - set to be released on the 5th of May.
