Streaming Queer: March 2024

Andrea Marks Joseph READ TIME: 15 MIN.

We've got a lot going on in the streaming world this month! From an Italian series inspired by the most famous pornstar in the world, to an action-packed Florida Keys roadhouse where Jake Gyllenhaal teaches Lukas Gage to throw punches, to a not-quite high society Kristen Wiig and Ricky Martin clash poolside.

March also brings an end to the royal scandal between "Young Royals" teens Wille and Simon, "Grey's Anatomy" is back and gayer than ever, and we can't wait to laugh with the diverse comedy special featuring trans comedians. Happy Streaming!

"All Of Us Strangers"

We can now watch this haunting queer movie in the comfort of home, where we can cry in private. Part quiet romance, part bittersweet fantasy, always filled with yearning, "All Of Us Strangers" is written and directed by out filmmaker Andrew Haigh. The movie follows Adam (out actor Andrew Scott), a man overcome by grief and loss, who has a chance encounter with a mysterious, magnetic neighbor Harry (Paul Mescal) that "punctures the rhythm of his everyday life..."

As a relationship develops between them, the film becomes more nostalgic, taking Adam back to the town where he grew up, and to his childhood home. When writing about this beautiful film, EDGE wrote in its review: "Not quite a ghost story, and not quite a time-travel narrative, the unconventional film sprinkles genre elements and themes to culminate in an achingly moving cinematic experience."

"All Of Us Strangers" is now streaming on Hulu.

"The Color Purple"

Though it's been criticized for being "sanitized" in its representation as a story of love between Black lesbians, this "bold new take on a beloved classic" is a landmark remake on a grand scale. "The Color Purple" is a cinematic adaptation of the Broadway musical following the sisterhood of three women who share an unbreakable bond. Produced by Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Scott Sanders and Quincy Jones, with a cast of both performing legends and icons-to-be – out actor Colman Domingo, Taraji P. Henson, Danielle Brooks, Halle Bailey, and Fantasia Barrino among them – "The Color Purple" is a must-see. A poignant reminder from when EDGE's Kilian Melloy reviewed this film: "Novels like the one this movie is based on are being banned by school boards and purged from libraries in red states, but storytelling this visceral and vital is impossible to erase."

"The Color Purple" is now streaming on Max.


Could the "ugly, untalented gays" please report to Prime Video – where we can now watch this absolute thrill and delight of a film everyday if we wanted to. Written by Rachel Sennott and out filmmaker Emma Seligman (who directed it), "Bottoms" follows two queer high schoolers (Sennott alongside It Girl of the moment and pride of Ireland, Ayo Edebiri) who form a girls' fight club as part of their plan to convince the two hottest cheerleaders at their school (Kaia Gerber and pansexual actor Havana Rose Liu) to hook up with them. This raunchy, raucous teen movie took comedy lovers and queer fans by storm. "Red, White & Royal Blue" prince Nicholas Galitzine plays Liu's campy, cheating, himbo-jock boyfriend, Jeff, whose delivery of his incredible, highly quotable lines are all over our social feeds.

"Bottoms" is now streaming on Prime Video.

"The Regime" Season 1

"The Regime" sees Kate Winslet starring as Chancellor Elena Vernham, a paranoid and increasingly unhinged ruler of a modern authoritarian regime that's just beginning to unravel. The trailer is giving "Succession" meets "Veep" meets whatever you imagine to be the most dangerous and daring political ruler in office right now – filmed with a gritty seriousness that is sure to drive us as insane as the Chancellor makes her colleagues, enemies, and staff (Andrea Riseborough, Martha Plimpton, and Hugh Grant among them) feel on a day-to-day basis.

"The Regime" streams March 3 on Max.

"Hannah Gadsby's Gender Agenda"

"Last time Netflix brought this many trans people together it was for a protest... So, progress." "Hannah Gadsby's Gender Agenda" is an extraordinary global comedy special bringing together a lineup of diverse genderqueer comedians from around the world. Curated by groundbreaking queer comedian Hannah Gadsby, and recorded at the iconic Alexandra Palace Theatre in London, the Netflix special features ALOK, Chloe Petts, DeAnne Smith, Asha Ward, Jes Tom, Mx. Dahlia Belle, and Krishna Istha.

"Hannah Gadsby's Gender Agenda" premieres March 5 on Netflix.

"Supersex" Season 1

Italian star Alessandro Borghi plays Rocco Siffredi in "Supersex," a series loosely inspired by the life of the most famous pornstar in the world. Rocco Siffredi has over 1400 hardcore films to his name, and has won 150 porn industry prizes. If you're unfamiliar with his work, we'll just drop this casual fact from his Wikipedia page for you: "Siffredi is known for his rough style of pornography, often involving anal sex, spitting, slapping and choking." Written and created by Francesca Manieri (who co-wrote Luca Guadagnino's queer coming-of-age series "We Are Who We Are"), "Supersex" has 40 to 50 'boundary-pushing' sex scenes." We're assuming there will be some fun for queer audiences in here, and we're willing to do the work of watching this show filled with hot naked men to find out.

"Supersex" Season 1 premieres March 6 on Netflix.

"Young Royals" Season 3

The final season of the Swedish teen love story has so much scandalous plot to wrap up, and they're keeping us on hold til the very end with this one – the series finale drops a week after the other episodes. Will fan-favorite ship "Wilmon" be endgame? We can only keep hoping the writers lean into the swoonworthy, years-long yearning, global-record-setting romance of it all. At the end of last season, Wilhelm (Edvin Ryding) proudly admitted publicly that it was him in bed with Simon (Omar Rudberg) in the leaked video, going against his mother and the castle's plan by showing solidarity with Simon, who finally confessed that he wants to be with Wille however he can. All evidence in the trailer points to fallout at school, but there's a lot of sweetness and an air of shared relief between Simon and Wille that has us hopeful for a happy ending. As an added bonus, alongside Season 3, Netflix is releasing a documentary about making the final season of the show.

"Young Royals" Season 3 premieres March 11 on Netflix. The final episode and "Young Royals: Forever" drop on March 18.
