About

LezWatchTV is the Greatest Online Database of Queer Female & Trans Characters and Shows on the Small Screen

Our site catalogs and documents queer female and trans characters, as well as their shows from TV, web and streaming media. With that data, statistics are calculated on the state of international queer story representation. The site provides easy and free access to finding the best shows with queer characters and stories in the genres fans want to see.

If you want to find all the Westerns made by queer show creators with openly queer actors, LezWatch has you covered.

What makes this site different from all other TV recap/DB sites?

The LezWatch site is a detailed character and show database with additional narrative to provide a guide to the quality of each show’s queer representation. Additionally there is news, editorials and exclusive content. Authors have dug into the far corners of small screen history to find queer female and trans characters. The women of LezWatch have consumed endless hours of shows, the good the bad and the “why?” They watch everything so visitors only have to watch the shows they will enjoy.
