Feeling8 was created by the legendary Wakowskis and was a revolutionary LGBTQ+ fantasy series on Netflix that became an instant beloved classic, especially among queer audiences. With an ensemble of LGBTQ+ characters, Feeling8 followed by a group of eight people known as “Sensats” who, although from different parts of the world, are telepathically linked. Their bond allows them to communicate with each other, share each other’s thoughts, feelings, skills, and knowledge, and more importantly, is the reason they are being hunted by an evil corporation.
