We’ve all been heavily relying on Netflix during the last year, but particularly during lockdown number three. One thing we can count on Netflix for is a diverse list of people cropping up in their shows and films time and time again. Their smashing it in terms of their diversity, so that had us wondering, who is the top LGBTQI earner on the platform?
OnBuy.com Movies and TV department wanted to ascertain the 20 highest earning LGBTQI actors on Netflix, by looking at the earnings and net worth of top stars, and the results are finally in…
Coming out on top is the star of Twilight and Happiest Season Kristen Stewart, with a mind-blowing 70 million dollar net worth.
She is followed closely by RuPaul at 60 million dollars and Gillian Anderson smashing it with her Sex Education role and a net worth of 40 million dollars.
The findings also revealed that three out of the top five earners are bisexual women, making them the top earners in 2020 with a combined net worth of 152 million dollars. The bi-cons are bringing it! This is compared to gay men whose combined net worth comes to 111 million dollars.
Lesbians came in third place with a combined net worth of 55.5 million dollars, followed by the transgender community at 16.5 million dollars and finally queer at three million dollars.
The show on Netflix with the highest concentration of LGBTQI actors is Pose, with 140 trans actors and crew members and 35 non-trans LGBTQI characters – this is the highest number of any TV show in history!
