The past year has been huge when it comes to LGBTQ+ representation in TV and film, from reality shows like I Kissed a Girl and comedy like Big Boys season 2 to films like Love Lies Bleeding.


But sometimes queer TV and film goes under the radar and needs a little bit more of a shoutout. Enter's Pride Month Guest Editor T'Nia Miller!

Miller, star of hits like The Haunting of Bly Manor, The Fall of the House of Usher and Years and Years, has shared some of her favourite queer TV and film of the past few years.

Check out the full list below.

Blue Jean (2022)

Pariah (2011)

Teenager Alike (Adepero Oduye) lives in Brooklyn's Fort Greene neighbourhood with her parents (Charles Parnell, Kim Wayans) and younger sister (Sahra Mellesse). A lesbian, Alike quietly embraces her identity and is looking for her first lover, but she wonders how much she can truly confide in her family, especially with her parents' marriage already strained.

T'Nia says: "As heartbreaking as it is important with phenomenal performances. I imagine it will join the movie greats of our time such as Boys Don't Cry and Moonlight which if you haven't seen you need to!"

Elliott and Jess are both grieving the disappearance of Peter, Jess's twin brother and the love of Elliott's life.

T'Nia says: "Brilliant performances! Whilst it's a stylised piece, the performances remain relatable. It scored 10s across the board. The cinematography is stunning, as is the set design. The costumes are vibrant with each character carefully crated through texture and pattern.

"It's fresh, new and will leave you snot-faced through tears of laughter and sorrow. But it's the actors who really shine here – it's incredibly well cast!"

For Love (2021)

A couple battle for a future where they can find a home and freedom that is not determined by where they're from.
