So, as someone who wants to write webseries for a living, I’ve watched my fair share of shows. These are some of my favorites, in alphabetical order. Since webseries actors have a tendency to pop up in other productions, I’ll list notable people as well.
A literary series based off of the three musketeers, A4O follows the story of Dorothy Castlemoore as she attempts to rush the sorority Mu Sigma Theta, and the problems (and hilarity) that ensues. (PLUS, though it is non-canon the fandom has a theory that Inseperables members cookiemonster, canonicallyace and worstdanceever are Laura, Beth and Lizzie, respectively.) I give this show a 5/5 queer rating for gender swapped characters, canonically queer ladies and a bisexual character who says the word bi!
Notable Actors - Alejandra Simmons, Angie Lopez
Couple-ish - Written by Kaitlyn Alexander and Sharon Belle
Couple-ish follows Dee and Rachel, as they attempt to trick the Canadian government into thinking they’re dating so Rachel can stay in the country. I give this show a 5/5 queer rating for sheer awesomeness.
Ava is an awkward high schooler who gets some extra-ordinary help from Charlie, who is possibly the world’s WORST guardian angel. I give this show a 4/5 queer rating for canon bisexuality, and so many lady kisses.
In a world with good and evil witches, Sloane and Taylor are two soulmates with questionable pasts that must find each other in each life they live. I give this show a 3/5 queer rating for lady kisses.
Emmy award wining and one of the first major literary series, LBD is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice where Lizzie is a grad student vlogging as part of her thesis. There are several companion series throughout so make sure to try and watch them all. I give this show a 0/5 queer rating, for straightness, but it’s still good.
A literary series based off of Little Women, MFL is about the March sisters as they send video letters to their mother. I give this show a 4/5 queer rating for a canonically ace character (Beth), and lady kisses.
Alex would be a typical college student, if her dad wasn’t the devil. Follow her as she gains new powers, and tries to save the world. I give this show a 3/5 queer rating for lady kisses and bi characters.
In a world where singing grants you power, the Blackhearts are a faction of people who must wear a magical tattoo called a muzzle to keep them from singing. Malfalia, the daughter of the leader of the Blackhearts, just wants to sing. This star studded cast is really remarkable. I give this show a 0/5 queer rating, but again, it’s still very good.
Notable Actors - Ashley Clements, Mary-Kate Wiles, Maxwell Glick, Lauren Lopez (of Starkid), Joey Richter (of Starkid), Jeff Lewis (of The Guild), Ashly Burch (Voice actress most known for Chloe Price), Juliet Landau (Buffy’s Drusilla) and the series was created in part by Matthew Mercer (Voice actor most known for Chrom in Fire Emblem or McCree in Overwatch, DM for Critical Role)
Each season follows a different lady-loving-lady couple as they are somehow stuck in a lease. I give this show a 4/5 queer rating for all-around queerness.
Notable Actors - Season 2, Angie Lopez, Winnie Clark (of Almost Adults)
This list is by no means the end-all-be-all of web-series, and the rating system is literally just my own opinion. but, like I said, these are some of my favorites. Stop by my inbox if you have suggestions for me to add or if any of the links are broken. Happy watching!
“I have great pleasure in thinking you will be so happily settled. I have not a doubt of your doing very well together. Your tempers are by no means unlike. You are each of you so complying, that nothing will ever be resolved on; so easy, that every servant will cheat you; and so generous, that you will always exceed your income.” - Mr. Bennet (Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen)
