Amazon Prime Video has launched its first-ever UK TikTok Original series, Just So You Know - and it features a cast of LGBTQ creators.

The recently-dropped project explores topics like history, sexuality, and religion, as the six individuals pen love letters to the love of their lives, confessing how they feel and exploring what love looks like in modern times. 

The series was inspired by the hit Amazon Original TV show Modern Love.

Drag artist Joseph Wilson, who serves as the show's director, comments: “I’m passionate about celebrating marginalised communities and bringing our narratives to mainstream audiences. That’s why the opportunity to create a series highlighting what love means to the LGBTQ+ community was so special.”
