Share This Post

Peacock has announced the release date and released the first trailer for Queer Planet, a new nature documentary exploring the rich diversity of animal sexuality. Queer Planet traverses the world to uncover nature’s hidden LGBTQ+ community, witnessing extraordinary creatures and never-before-seen behaviors that shed new light on unconventional sexualities and genders in the natural world. Plus, scientists weigh in with the facts on what comes naturally in the animal world as it relates to sex and gender.

This first-of-its-kind nature documentary is narrated by actor Andrew Rannells (Gutenberg! The Musical!, Girls5eva) and premieres exclusively on Peacock June 6, just in time for Pride month. 

The scientists featured in the documentary include Bradley Trevor Greive (Author & Naturalist), Dr. Martin Stervander (Ornithologist), Dr. Christine Wilkinson (Biologist), Dr. Ross Brooks (Science Historian), Dr. Amy Parish (Primatologist), Antonia Forster (Biologist), Florence Schechter (Director, The Vagina Museum), Dr. Tim Cockerill (Entomologist), Dr. Patricia Kaishian (mycologist), Dr. Christopher Goatley (marine biologist) and Dr. Dan Edwards (Evolutionary Biologist).

“We’ve all heard of gay penguins, but this film really opened my eyes to the full spectrum of LGBTQ+ behaviors across the natural world, said narrator Rannells, “And what could be more natural than being who you are? I’m excited to be part of Queer Planet, especially during Pride Month, and on Peacock, surely the most colorful and glamorous of all the streaming services.”
