Kareema (No Tomorrow): pansexual Indian woman, currently engaged to a latina. She’s a main character, and her story with Sofía begins at s01e06.
No Tomorrow is available on Netflix.

Pippy Rosewood (Rosewood): a black lesbian, from the beginning of the show she’s engaged to her bisexual girlfriend Tara. She’s the lead’s sister, a main character, and gets a good third of the show’s screentime.
Rosewood is on Fox and is in its second season, which means 1) it might survive and 2) you can get eps on the Fox website and Hulu, but only the current season.

Nova Bordelon (Queen Sugar): a black bisexual, dates a straight white dude (RIP) and a black lesbian through the course of season 1. One of the three leads of the show. Her story with Chantal begins in s01e06.
Queen Sugar is on OWN and you can watch it on the official app.
Warnings for the show: talks of rape and police brutality.

Max (Black Sails): a black lesbian, from the very first episode we know she’s involved with another main lady. She’s a main character (out of six mains, three are sapphic women and at least one of the men is gay), and her arc and her romances get around a third of the screentime.
Black Sails is on STARZ, and the first three seasons are on Netflix. You can go to their website or STARZ on Demand. I don’t have cable, but sometimes Amazon will have a workaround.
Warnings for the show: rape (timestamps here), general violence.

Lady Ella and Pamela (Saints and Sinners): Ella is a black bisexual and Pamela a black lesbian. Both are leading characters, and the center of the story is Ella’s family; and they have an ongoing relationship through the show.
You can watch Saints and Sinners on the official Bounce TV website.
Warnings: It’s rated tv14 so there isn’t anything explicit.

Lena Adams (The Fosters): Lena is a black lesbian and one of the two leads of the show. The story is about her, her wife Stef and their adopted children.
You can watch it on the Freeform website or on Netflix.
Warnings: Addiction, rape, alcoholism.
