Speaking as a total TV and movie nerd, one of my favorite things to do is get lost in a good story and distract myself for a while. And as a member of the LGBTQ community, I totally geek out whenever I see a queer character on screen — especially if Hollywood portrays them in an accurate light.
But sometimes, Hollywood totally misses the mark and either writes them under a stereotypical umbrella or doesn't even acknowledge their queerness.
That made me want to ask you, dear reader: Which LGBTQ characters were done right in movies/TV shows, and which ones were done dirty?
Maybe you loved how Brooklyn Nine-Nine handled Rosa's storyline of coming out as bisexual because they didn't rely on tragedy, but humor instead.
Or perhaps you were frustrated when Paul from Breakfast at Tiffany's was portrayed as Holly's love interest, when in the book, he was her queer best friend and neighbor.
Or maybe you admired how David and Patrick's relationship was showcased on Schitt's Creek because they didn't fall back on stereotypes to illustrate what a meaningful queer relationship looks like.
Whoever the characters are, we want to know! Tell us which LGBTQ movie/TV characters were portrayed well on screen and which ones weren't (and why you think so) in the comments below.
