Marathoning Queer TV

In celebration of gay pride, Showtime is bringing back two series — Queer as Folk and The L World — for the entire month of June. Every Monday through Friday at 8 pm EST, fans can re-watch back-to-back episodes of both shows starting on June 2. (Showtime, June 2)

 

Finding Fault In Our Stars

There’s no escaping the juggernaut of the rabid fan base surrounding the film adaptation of John Green’s critically-acclaimed YA novel, The Fault in Our Stars. Grab the tissues before going, the film — starring Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff (above) — promises to be a tearjerker. (Nationwide, June 6)

 

Keeping It Real With Fake Girls

MTV’s sleeper hit, Faking It, is wrapping up a strong first season, which saw two girls navigate love, sexuality, and friendship. The show moved beyond being a show about fake lesbians and blossomed into a series about the realities of high school. (MTV, June 10)
