This is especially true when it comes to the portrayal of the LGBTQIA+ community in the mainstream. In recent years, we've seen a surge of new television shows, documentaries, and movies that help to shape a beautiful narrative of love and understanding for everyone. Here are just a few examples.

We're seeing more and more LGBTQIA+ characters on television shows like "Orange Is the New Black," "Euphoria," "Sex Education," "Heart Stoppers," "Pose," and "Love Victor," to name a few. These shows help to promote awareness of the community and its struggles, as well as its triumphs.

Documentaries like "The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson," "Disclosure," and "The Trans List" help to educate viewers about the lives and experiences of transgender individuals.

And finally, movies like "Moonlight," "North Sea Texas," "Call Me By Your Name," and "God's Own Country" are helping to tell important stories about our community.
