From stories about harrowing queer experiences (“The Miseducation of Cameron Post”) to films that are harrowing queer experiences themselves (Hello, “TÁR”), Peacock has a reasonably decent LGBTQ offering amid the annual spring sprint to queer content to be promoted before Pride in June.

Peacock’s selection of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer movies and TV shows isn’t nearly as robust as the other catalogs on competing services Hulu, Netflix, and Prime Video. And it’s another shout out from the plethora of original gay content at HBO — which remains the only competitor in the streaming wars to wield a critically acclaimed comedy about gay pirates.

But at least a handful of the LGBTQ stories currently available on Peacock are good enough to consider checking out the service, even if you’re not usually there perusing NBC’s stash of mediocre sitcoms. On the TV side, “We Are Lady Parts” stands out as a must-watch series about five women and their punk band, endorsed by IndieWire’s Steve Greene.

“Playful with enough flair and distinct twists to shake up his more well-known pieces, ‘We Are Lady Parts’ is an energetic fusion of emerging artists and the fictional framework that presents them,” he wrote in his review. “For Lady Parts, those harmonies aren’t always clean: They’re a punk quartet that will fill any rehearsal room with as much sound as the room can handle.”

Of course, as far as movies go, you could check out Cate Blanchett starring in “TÁR,” a harrowing psychological thriller about a lesbian orchestra conductor that dominated the queer film debate in 2022. Or you could go further off the beaten track and try Porcupine Lake. : a 2017 love and coming-of-age story by filmmaker Ingrid Veninger, screened at TIFF this year.

Here are 8 of the best TV shows and movies to stream on Peacock right now in April 2023, in no particular order.
