    28 TV Shows That Actually Reflect What It's Like To Be Queer Today

    When Cary Dubek ran into the Instagays on The Other Two, I felt that.

    Look out world! One of my favorite queer characters has returned to your television screens.

    Yes, I am talking about Cary Dubek from The Other Two, played expertly by Drew Tarver. He's just a washed-up gay actor trying to claw his way out of his brother's shadow. He's got an overbearing mother. He just wants a nice boyfriend (because who doesn't?).

    The Other Two Season 2 is currently airing on HBO Max, and with it comes a whole new slew of very relatable queer moments (like the whole episode about shirtless gay influencers).

    But that got me thinking about all the great queer shows out there atm serving up relatable queer moments. So of course I had to compile them into this little queer list for you all!
