25 LGBTQ TV Couples That Are Amazing, But Not A Lot Of People Talk About Them

"Forbidden, gay, everlasting...what more could you want in a romance?"

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which LGBTQ couples on TV they love but not enough people talk about. Here are some of their responses:

Spoilers ahead!

1. Cyrus and TJ from Andi Mack

Disney

"They're so perfect for each other. They're always there to support one another and all of their moments are so heartfelt."

2. Elena and Syd from One Day at a Time

Netflix

"Syd is non-binary and the two of them are just the sweetest little baby gays finding love and acceptance with each other."

3. Nomi and Amanita from Sense8

Netflix

"Not only are they an F/F couple, but they're interracial and Nomi is trans. From day one, they are an incredibly healthy crime-solving couple."

4. Ruby and Sapphire from Steven Universe

Cartoon Network

"Their love for each other fused them into the badass being that is Garnet. For them to have such a long-standing fusion means they have to trust and respect each other."

5. Captain Holt and Kevin from Brooklyn Nine-Nine

NBC

"They’re beautifully domestic. They have a house and a dog and do things they enjoy together. Their relationship isn’t built off of trauma or something dramatic."

6. Catherine and Marjorie from VEEP

HBO

"They adored each other, understood each other, and actually stayed together until they were old."

7. David and Patrick from Schitt's Creek

CBC

"There is no such thing as 'enough' talk about them."

8. Magnus and Alec from Shadowhunters

Freeform

"It was great to see a bisexual POC character and a gay man who isn’t just a stereotype or comic relief."

9. Spencer and Ashley from South of Nowhere

The N

"Ashley helped Spencer discover who she was and how to deal with a mother who didn't want a gay daughter, while Spencer taught Ashley how to see the good in everybody."

10. Catra and Adora from She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

Netflix

"Their love literally saved the universe. I also love their romance because it's so rare for the two main female characters of a children's TV show to fall in love and share a passionate kiss. I wish more people talked about them!"

11. Mickey and Ian from Shameless

SHOWTIME

"They blur the lines so completely with heterosexual norms, and even with stereotypes in a gay relationship. Mickey is the 'bottom' in the relationship, but he's also the toughest, roughest guy on the show. Ian wears the pants in the relationship, but his character is soft, sensitive, and pretty. I think the juxtaposition between their roles outside the relationship vs. inside the relationship is beautiful."

12. Imogen and Fiona from Degrassi: The Next Generation

TeenNick

"They were one of the longest-running couples and were so good to each other. They also started off as best friends and their relationship grew organically!"

13. Zoe and Rasha from Degrassi: Next Class

Netflix

They were genuinely one of the most healthy, supportive pairings on the show. Not only was their relationship great lesbian representation, but Rasha was also Muslim and a Syrian refugee. Rasha helped Zoe accept herself and see that her homophobic mom was wrong, and Zoe helped Rasha get out of her shell. They even won prom queens!

14. Willow and Tara from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The WB

"I just watched this show for the first time and wasn’t expecting such good representation and well-rounded LGBTQ characters from a show that debuted in the '90s. They were a really good representation of a young gay couple and both characters also had storylines outside of their relationship. My only issue was Tara falling victim to the trope of killing off LGBTQ characters."

15. Alex and Charlie from 13 Reasons Why

Netflix

"They were super cute together, and I love how Charlie didn't give up even when Alex pushed him away."

16. Tony and Caleb from 13 Reasons Why

Netflix

"The show may have become hot garbage, but I love Tony and Caleb's relationship."

17. Emily and Naomi from Skins

E4

These two were messy at times, but their relationship was so raw and real. Naomi really had to break down all her walls to admit that she was falling for Emily, accept her sexuality, and open her heart to a relationship. They went through lots of ups and downs, but they always loved each other.

18. Grizz and Sam from The Society

Netflix

"They had such a wholesome relationship. You could tell Grizz really cared about him when he put in the effort to learn sign language. It was especially cute when Grizz asked Sam how to sign 'I love you.'"

19. Maya and Emily from Pretty Little Liars

ABC

"They were so good together. Maya not only made Emily feel okay about her sexuality, but she also truly made her happy."

20. Titus and Mikey from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Netflix

"They aren’t really talked about much, but I love how different their personalities are. Titus went from being afraid of commitment to fully being in love."

21. Hope and Josie from Legacies

The CW

I'll say it over and over again: These two are soulmates and they NEED to just officially date already. Their chemistry speaks for itself, they're incredibly supportive of each other, and they have the potential to be the next big ship of the Vampire Diaries franchise. I'd rather watch these two over Hope and Landon any day.

22. Dasha and Tatiana from Spinning Out

Netflix

"Forbidden, gay, everlasting...what more could you want in a romance, really?"

23. Lena and Stef from The Fosters

Freeform

"They have an absolutely beautiful relationship. Not only do they have amazing chemistry, but they are kickass parents. I honestly aspire to have a relationship like theirs."

24. David and Keith from Six Feet Under

HBO

"They went through so much, but always found their way back to each other."

25. And finally, Omar and Ander from Elite

Netflix

"They are literally soulmates. No matter what happens, they always come back to each other."
