Piper Chapman is a public relations executive with a career and a fiance when her past suddenly catches up to her. In her mid-30s she is sentenced to spend time in a minimum-security women's prison in Connecticut for her association with a drug runner 10 years earlier. Forced to trade power suits for prison orange, Chapman makes her way through the corrections system and adjusts to life behind bars, making friends with the many eccentric, unusual and unexpected people she meets.
From cult classic “Queer as Folk,” through the iconic, female-fronted “The L Word,” to “Orange Is the New Black” and its stellar and incredibly diverse cast, these are some of the shows that dared to challenge heteronormativity in the mainstream media and paved the way to the LGBTQ+ representation that is thankfully becoming the norm today. With their original portrayal of characters all along the LGBTQ+ spectrum, these shows helped so many people finally feel seen.
