I was watching Six Feet Under while my dad was in the hospital last month (watching TV with three cranky chihuahuas calms them down). For an older show from the early 2000's it actually has pretty great gay representation with David, one of the main characters who struggles with coming out to his family in the first season, matters of religion, and generally enjoying himself without being a total wreck. My dad's promised not to spoil any plot so maybe it'll suck when I watch more. :P

Sailor Moon, the 90's anime (And I'm not talking about the disastrous dubbing.)
I was 13 o 14 when I watched the series for the first time with the latin american dubbing, I loved it because of magic, reincarnation and girl superheroes. I remember that there was a lesbian couple (Haruka and Michiru) but being a straight girl under 15 the LGBTQIA+ representation wasn't in the front of my mind.
A couple of years ago I was in a nostalgic mood and I watched it in the original language with subtitles. My mind was blown away. Obviously the anime had a lot of silly moments of typical teen shows but the LGBTQIA+ representation? That's a WOW for a 90's show.
Seeing it in its original language I discovered several things:
Zoisite and Kunzite, a cute gay couple despite their evilness. The dubbing turned one of these characters into a woman, talk about censorship. :mutter:
Haruka and Michura were in a stable relationship but when I saw the show with adult eyes I was impressed how well characterization those girls had and how good their love was portrayed. Today they're my favorite couple from the show.
The protagonist, Sailor Moon/Usagi/Serena. She's portrayed as a straight girl but I concluded that she's pansexual. I don't know if this is a producer decision or not of if other peoples see this, but that's my impression. She blushed and go starry eyed when meeting beautiful people despite their gender; she had a little crush on Haruka that doesn't go away when she realizes that Haruka is a woman and not a man. And lot of other things.
I don't know if it's the best representation or anything, but for a cartoon aimed at teen girls in the early nineties...

To add on to your post Yani, in the Sailor Stars anime a.k.a. Season 5, the Sailor Starlights were able to change genders from male to female when they transformed. Seiya (Sailor Star Fighter), had a huge crush on Usagi and she had a huge crush on her, but resisted because of Mamoru. The Starlights being able to change genders was something TV Tokyo added and at the time the creator Naoko Takuichi didn't like the idea, she wanted them to be strictly female. Although looking at it 25 years later, she may have changed her tune about it. Not sure if they left that in when it came out later in North America, the dubbers refused to do that season because of the trans nature of the Starlights. You can find them subbed though.

Thank you Ani-Mei, when I was writing the post I knew that I was forgetting something big. The Starlights! I saw that season, in Latin America luckily all the seasons were broadcast and dubbed. In fact, from season 3 onwards the dubb was very well done but the errors from the first two persisted.
