5 sapphic webseries anyone can watch on YouTube!

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Casper Libero chapter.

While the big streamings still suffer with the lack of productions with sapphic protagonism, YouTube has plenty of webseries that portrait love between women. Available for free, the productions are a great alternative for those who wish to follow more complex and well developed stories with lesbians and bissexual caracthers.

With the shortage of representation on traditional mainstream channels, independent producers, such as the brazilian Ponto Ação, have been seeking to produce and distribute LGBTQIA+ content exclusively for the internet. To cover the costs, they organize crowdfunding campaigns and offer rewards to fans, like Meet and Greets – in which they are able to have a closer contact with the cast.

Besides the lean budget, the webseries bring well-built stories about sapphic love, while escaping stereotypes and sexualizations. In the narratives, the lesbian and bissexual characters are really the protagonists, with conflicts, dramas and experiences putted in the spotlight.

Thinking about that, here are 5 webseries with sapphic protagonists that are available on YouTube for everyone to stream with no fee. There are options for every taste, ideal for whom is done with the mainstream channels’ censorship and cancellations.

Magenta (2018, Brazil)

After six years of relationship, Nina (Giul Abreu) and Manuela (Priscila Buiar) are surprised by a third woman in their lives: Raphaela (Rebeca Figueiredo). Chats, jokes and intimate moments shared only by the two of them are now shared with this new person, what confuses the feelings of all the parts involved in this plot.

Among poetic memories of the main characters, two storylines get mixed up in the webseries: past, when Nina and Manu were still a couple, and future, when the both of them hurt for being apart. Over time, letters and drawings are presented on-screen, offering clues to understand how the relationship between Nina and Manu was shaken.

Magenta, produced by the brazilian “Linha Produções”, has two seasons uploaded to YouTube, with ten episodes each.

One day, a famous businesswoman makes a visit to the nightclub where Karla works and gets completely fascinated by the erotic dancer. In the morning, Camila arrives for her daylight work and is introduced to the new president of the company: Lauren (Priscilla Pugliese), the same woman who was enchanted by her the night before. With help from her friends, the stripper will face many situations to hide from the new boss her real identity, while the lust toward one another just increases.

She wakes up someday with no memory and finds out she is now married to Valentina (Priscila Buiar), a woman she used to hate in college and, not only, they have a son together. With all the challenges, Luiza tries to understand what led her to get amnesia, while Valentina tries to win back her wife’s heart.

Gap: The Series is the first Girls Love (GL) — an asian genre that addresses romance between women — from Thailand, reaching fans not only in the country, but in different places around the world. There are twelve episodes available on the YouTube channel “Idol Factory” with Portuguese and English subtitles.

The plot accompanies Mon (Becky Armstrong), a young recently graduated woman who receives an opportunity to work on the company owned by a lady who she admires since childhood: Lady Sam (Freen Sarocha). What she didn’t expect was that Sam turned out pretty different from her past self. 

Strict and demanding with her employees, the businesswoman, at first, doesn’t give Mon much opening.

To the fans of a good and old cliche, this webseries is a must-watch, with several scenes of affection and care between the protagonists.
