Queer Stream: Lost Girl leaves Netflix April 1

Since we’re all inside and stressed out, we’ve launched Queer Stream, a series of short essays highlighting great queer TV and film you can stream right now. Today we’re talking about the iconic fantasy series Lost Girl, which aired 2010-2015. And, since the series is leaving Netflix on April 1, we wanted to make sure you got a chance to dig in before it is only to be found on Prime and other pay-per-view services.

Lost Girl follows Bo Dennis as she learns she’s part of an ancient, mystical species called the Fae. And what’s more, she finds out she’s a succubus, which does explain the trail of bodies she’s left in her wake. Bo has only ever wanted to be free and be herself, but she finds that even the Fae have rules for their members. When she’s forced to align with either the Light or Dark Fae, Bo makes sure we’re all clear on what exactly this succubus is willing to do—and it’s not join up. In the pilot, viewers meet our merry cast of characters including Kenzie (Bo’s bff), Dyson (Bo’s love interest), and Lauren (Bo’s love interest too).

There is so much to love about this queer AF series. Bo has a string of lovers of multiple genders and rocks her BFE (Big Femme Energy) the entire series, while also being a (mostly) pretty solid partner. And when she and a human get serious, they become polyamorous. Bo is a powerful and inspiring character in her own right, but it is the chosen family she builds around her that will really melt your heart.

    Ahh lost girl ! Watching this show was a validation of being a queer woman, Bo, Lauren and Tamsin were strong women who were intelligent and three dimensional and with a female lead which was hardly ever seen on a television series. Anna Silk kicked ass along with Rachel Skarsden, and i could not leave out Zoie Palmer as Dr. Lauren Lewis. Michelle Lovretta created one of the best sci-fi shows ever and then handed the reins over to another “best” Emily Andras who became head writer for lost girl and now in my opinion the absolute best Sci-fi show “Wynonna Earp “ which also has LGBTQIA representation and without the trope “kill off the gays”, so it’s a must see just as LostGirl was!
