All of your precious ships

It used to be that you could only see one type of relationship on television. Straight, white love was the norm and everything else was fringe. Now, we get to see all types of relationships, including gay, bi, trans, and interracial love. Which LGBTQ+ love stories have defined popular culture? We can name a few.

Connor and Oliver from How To Get Away With Murder 

What started out as sex based manipulation quickly turned into one of How To Get Away With Murder's most most loved storylines.

I think, besides the couples on Will and Grace, Tara and Willow were one of the first same sex couples I remember on television. Back then, gay characters were often peripheral. So, seeing Willow and Tara star on one of television's highest rated dramas was huge.

Well, besides Amanita and Nomi, of course.
