Happy Pride Month! This year, we are celebrating with 10 more WEBTOON series that feature LGBTQIA+ characters and stories! These stories span different genres, so there is something for everyone to enjoy! We’ve got fantasy, educational and drama, just to name a few. But the best part about all of these is that they represent the LGBTQIA+ community! If you don’t see your favorite series on this list, we highly suggest checking out last year’s list here! But, without further ado, let’s dive in!
This is by no means a complete list of the LGBTQIA+ WEBTOON series but ones that we are absolutely in love with at this time. We would love to hear your favorites too! Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
We are kicking off our LGBTQIA+ WEBTOON list with Always Human by walkingnorth. This series is about nanobots, genetic engineering and two girls falling in love. Because we all know that no matter how much technology changes us, we will always be human. It balances a love story between two individuals with a story that dives into falling in love with yourself as well. The story is heartwarming, loving, and a perfect read for Pride Month.
Always Human is completed and can be read in full here.
Prince & Knight
Next on our list is Tsuyonpu‘s Prince & Knight series. We love fairy tales here at GGA. And LGBTQIA+ fairy tales are – chef’s kiss. After five long years, the Prince is finally ready to settle into his role and serve as the heir to the throne and Prince of the Kingdom. But, the reason he held off for so long might just not be what you were expecting. The way Tsuyonpu tells the story between the writing and art style makes falling in love with this series a no-brainer.
Prince & Knight updates bi-weekly on Mondays and can be read here.
Life Outside the Circle
Our third series on the LGBTQIA+ WEBTOON list is H-P Lehkonen‘s Life Outside the Circle. Sometimes stories don’t need to be overly complex to pull at all of our heartstrings. And this is one of them. It’s just a heartwarming tale of two men who find love in the Finnish countryside. It will have you laughing one minute and crying happy tears the next. Plus, Maiju is an absolute star, and we can’t help but love her.
Life Outside the Circle is completed and can be read in full here!
Hey, I’m Gay!
Being gay is so cool. It’s fabulous with rainbows, glitter and unicorns forever. And Fulcagay‘s Hey, I’m Gay! is all about the good things about being gay. This includes tons of laughs, hot scenes and educational topics. The chapters are short but absolutely perfect and authentic to many people’s experiences about coming out and being openly gay with the world. Seriously, add this series to your TBR and put it right at the top.
Hey, I’m Gay! updates every Friday and can be read here!
Diamond Dive (GL)
Who doesn’t love girls and witchcraft? In Madamka‘s Diamond Dive (GL) series, we get both of those and even more! How far will one go for love and ambition? Pretty far, it seems. This series follows a newbie witch, an heiress and everything that fate has in store for them. It’s magical in all the best ways possible. It’s one of our favorite WEBTOON Canvas series and a must-read for everyone.
Diamond Dive (GL) updates on the 1st and 15th and can be read here.
We couldn’t talk about LGBTQIA+ WEBTOON series without talking about Wendy Lian Martin‘s Castle Swimmer. This fantasy series dives into what happens when a prophecy rules your entire life. But what happens when two fates collide? One is destined to save the world, while the other is destined to kill the savior? Will both reject their course? And what happens when something neither can deny grows between the two of them? It leads to one wild ride full of adventure and romance!
Castle Swimmer updates every Sunday and can be read here!
In Rue & Sunny Gloom‘s RAINBOW! we learn how overly imaginative teenager Boo Meadows escapes her daily grind. She does what we all do – lives with her head in the clouds. Sometimes this is good, and sometimes it isn’t good. But when she meets the girl of her daydreams, it may finally be time to face reality. What I love most about this series are the little daydreams Boo puts herself in. She takes the magical girl trope to a whole new level.

Serious Trans Vibes
We couldn’t make a list of LGBTQIA+ WEBTOON series without sharing Serious Trans Vibes by SophieLabelle. The series follows Stephie and Ciel, two queer and transgender teens navigating coming out and finding pride and empowerment in their daily lives. Each episode dives into a little piece of the trans community and focuses on the highs while also not ignoring the lows. It’s authentic, charming and worth the read.

When a new heir to the duchy of Beullna comes of age, the Heir’s Game is held. This is a brutal series of duels to determine the heir’s bodyguard. But things will be different this time around.
