It used to be that you could only see one type of relationship on television. Straight, white love was the norm and everything else was fringe. Now, we get to see all types of relationships, including gay, bi, trans, and interracial love. Which LGBTQ+ love stories have defined popular culture? We can name a few.
Emison from Pretty Little Liars
If She Stans Pretty Little Liars she knows Emison is true love and endgame.— If She Stans (@IfSheStans) September 1, 2016
Connor and Oliver from How To Get Away With Murder
What started out as sex based manipulation quickly turned into one of How To Get Away With Murder's most most loved storylines.
Willow and Tara from Buffy The Vampire Slayer
I think, besides the couples on Will and Grace, Tara and Willow were one of the first same sex couples I remember on television. Back then, gay characters were often peripheral. So, seeing Willow and Tara star on one of television's highest rated dramas was huge.
