Great LGBTQIA+ Show

Young Royals is very real and raw from how the actors have acne to how their emotions are portrayed. The series also presses many questions like if monarchy is beneficial for society. On the other hand there is a lot of substance abuse (getting drunk on moonshine and high on various drugs) and sex ( anal sex, handjobs and making out is shown). Doing drugs and dealing drugs however is not overly glorified in this show the same way as others. Sex and drugs aside this show is about two teens(18 year olds) who fall in love.
