Steven Universe

This show overfloweth with amazing queer characters and lessons about accepting and embracing others. For you non-binary folks, the “Alone Together” episode is a magical, validating tear jerker. 

Adventure Time

Princess Bubblegum and Marceline’s romance, the genderless/genderfluid sentient game console and best friend BMO are just three of the overtly queer characters.

Sailor Moon Crystal

Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune were the first lesbian couple I witnessed on screen.

Gravity Falls

In addition to this show being an absolute hoot with a great story, its small-town officers (Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durland) are an item, and it’s not even a big deal. It just is

Powerpuff Girls

HIM is the most deliciously queer villain, and Buttercup is a small butch baby.
