One of the newest miniseries of 2021 is It's a Sin on HBO Max, and it already has everyone talking. It's a Sin takes place in 1980s London, during the peak of the AIDS crisis, and it follows the lives of three gay men who move to the city and become quick friends. The show was created by Russell T. Davies, a producer who has historically created thoughtful and realistic depictions of LGBTQ+ characters on TV, with shows like Queer as Folk and Cucumber.
It's a Sin is so addictive, particularly because it is unafraid to explore serious subjects, while also offering funny and joyful celebrations of growing up queer. If you're like us, then you probably binged every episode in one night (and went through a box and a half of tissues) and you're anxious for more. Luckily, we've got seven shows that may not be as devastating, but will pull you in just as easily as It's a Sin.
