Best LGBT+ Media to Watch/ Read This Pride Month

It’s June, which means that it’s LGBT+ pride month. In honor of that, I thought it would be cool to discuss some of the queer and trans themed movies, books, Youtube channels, and TV shows to read and watch this pride month. Keep in mind that each graphic novel can be found at the following free online comic reader: http://readcomiconline.to/

But before we get into that, it’s important to keep in mind that not every member of the queer and trans community is having a great time right now. Here are helpful links that some gender and sexuality minorities might benefit from:
