My son and I share a huge passion for television and movies. Before the health crisis, we often went to our local theater once a week, taking turns picking out what we would see. We love sharing TV shows together, and the parameters I’ve set for what he is and isn’t allowed to watch could be described as liberal by some. I think the media we consume with our kids can definitely impact how our kids see the world, and that’s one reason I often look for family-friendly shows that celebrate LGBTQ stories, characters, and real-life people.
My kid is 11 now, and there’s almost nothing that I wouldn’t let him watch as long as I’m there with him. We just finished watching the entirety of Schitt’s Creek (which we both loved; our greatest aspiration is to grow to be Moira and David), and we also happily watch Queer-Eye when we get a chance.
While I think both of those shows are definitely family-friendly, not every family is necessarily ready for them. That’s okay! Here are 10 family-friendly shows that celebrate and uplift LGBTQ stories, people, and characters, along with the age group the show is most appropriate for. The target age recommendations have all been sourced from Common Sense Media, but I always encourage parents to make decisions that most accurately apply to their own children.
