From stories about harrowing queer experiences (“The Miseducation of Cameron Post”) to films that are harrowing queer experiences themselves (hello, “LIBRARY”), the Peacock has a reasonably decent LGBTQ lineup amid the annual spring sprint to Pride promote weird content before. June.

Peacock’s offering of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer movies and TV shows isn’t nearly as robust as the other catalogs of competing services like Hulu, Netflix, and Prime Video. And it’s another shout-out to the glut of original gay content at HBO — still the only competitor in the streaming wars to air a critically acclaimed comedy about gay pirates.

But at least a handful of the LGBTQ stories currently available on Peacock are good enough to make you consider checking out the service, even if you don’t usually check out NBC’s stock of mediocre sitcoms. On the TV side, We Are Lady Parts stands out as a must-see series about five women and their punk band, recommended by IndieWire’s Steve Greene.

“Playful, with enough flair and idiosyncratic twists to shake up her more familiar pieces, ‘We Are Lady Parts’ is an energetic amalgamation of up-and-coming artists and the fictional framework that represents them,” he wrote in his review. “These harmonies aren’t always neat for Lady Parts: a punk quartet that fills any rehearsal space with as much sound as the room can handle.”

As for movies, of course, you can watch Cate Blanchett starrer “THE LIBRARY,” a harrowing psychological thriller about a lesbian orchestra conductor who dominated the queer movie debate in 2022. Or you can go off the beaten path and try “Pig Lake”. : 2017 romance and coming-of-age story from filmmaker Ingrid Veninger, screened at TIFF that year.

In no particular order, here are 8 of the best TV shows and movies currently available to stream on Peacock in April 2023. For more LGBTQ film recommendations, check out IndieWire’s guide to the best of the 21st century.
