The 18 Best Queer Movie And TV Couples

In the triumphant wake of today's historic Supreme Court decisions, we present to you the best queer TV and movie couples that shattered prejudices, countered sexuality assumptions, and changed the way we view queer relationships. (And, in some cases, also made our hearts swell with belief in romance.) Their stories are as influential as they are honest. Their trials are as real and as normal as any other couple's, and their depth of passion is just as relatable, touching, honest, and nuanced as, say, Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler (or any other "traditional" couples). Some of these couples introduced a new "normal," without flinching at controversy. These films and television shows helped prove that love knows no gender (#LoveIsLove)...and that's definitely something worth celebrating.
