Check these top 5 shows to watch this Pride Month!
1. Made In Heaven (Amazon Prime Video)
Made In Heaven, an Amazon Prime Video original film has captivated audiences since its debut, thanks to its multi-layered storyline and outstanding performances.
The presentation offered many storylines of Indian society and its fascination with nuptials against the backdrop of big-fat Indian weddings.
Made In Heaven, starring Sobhita Dhulipala, Arjun Mathur, Jim Sarabh, and Kalki Koechlin, is a series that explores gender fluidity and individual sexuality in a subtle way.
2. Four More Shots Please (Amazon Prime Video)
On Amazon Prime Video, the film Four More Shots Please! follows the friendship of four strong women: Kirti Kulhari, Sayani Gupta, Maanvi Gagroo, and Bani J.
The show covers a variety of issues, including being a single mother, bisexuality, and accepting one’s own body. While Umang (Banji J) acknowledges her sexuality and has people who support her. Moreover, her lover Samara (Lisa Ray) is completely closed off.
3. Never Have I Ever (Netflix)
Never Have I Ever, a Netflix original comedy created by Mindy Kaling, tells the tale of a Tamil-American adolescent Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) who, together with her two friends Fabiola (Lee Rodriguez) and Eleanor (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), wants to be popular in high school (Ramona Young). Fabiola’s sexuality is one of the show’s subplots.
4. Feel Good (Netflix)
Mae Martin’s new film is a jittery, anxious comedy about a UK stand-up comedian (Mae) who falls in love with George (Charlotte Ritchie). Moreover, a well-intentioned but secretive homosexual.
The show covers serious topics like internalised homophobia, mental health, and addiction, but does so in a refreshingly light-hearted manner.
5. The Umbrella Academy (Netflix)
“The Umbrella Academy,” at its best, is indescribable alchemy of family, history, and damaged adult children. Moreover, in other words, a perfect metaphor for growing up queer in America. Additionally, akin to “Brothers & Sisters” with an adoptive set of mutant siblings, or perhaps a crime-of-the-century adventure from the perspective of time-travelling superheroes.
