Below is the synopsis of "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power," per Rotten Tomatoes:

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is the story of an orphan named Adora (Carrero), who leaves behind her former life in the evil Horde when she discovers a magic sword that transforms her into the mythical warrior princess She-Ra. Along the way, she finds a new family in the Rebellion as she unites a group of magical princesses in the ultimate fight against evil.

"She-Ra and the Princesses of Power" received positive reviews, holding a fresh rating of 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The show is also garnering praise for being LGBTQ-progressive. CBR.com's Renaldo Matadeen wrote: 

Rest assured, while She-Ra doesn't make it a big deal, it definitely lives up to its promise of progressive storytelling on the LGBTQ front, resulting in a series perfect for modern teenage audiences.
While we didn't get to see Bow's two fathers in Season 1 there are plenty of queer and queer-potential relationships. What's impressive is how everything feels very much like the world we live in, presenting things as natural as they are in real life. Executive producer Noelle Stevenson and Co. wanted to craft a cosmopolitan world reflecting our current society, and they accomplish just that in a warm, lighthearted manner.

Below is the synopsis of "Voltron: Legendary Destroyer," per Rotten Tomatoes.

Five teens from Earth pilot robotic lions in an intergalactic battle against evil.

While "Voltron: Legendary Destroyer" does not have a fresh rating posted, the audience score is 82 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The series has been around since 2016, and it already has seven seasons under its belt. 

Screenrant reported the seventh season had lots of "action and humor." But that's not the only highlight of season seven; Vulture's Brian Moylan reported the show had a gay character all along.

For those who grew up on the classic ’80s cartoon Voltron, Netflix’s remake, Voltron: Legendary Defender, will seem quite different. Yes, five mechanical lions still combine to form a giant robot that kicks ass in space, but the show has been modernized in ways large and small. Not only is the storytelling more serialized, with the five paladins of Voltron fighting to stop the domination of the evil Galra Empire, but in the seventh-season premiere, Legendary Defender reveals that the group’s leader, Takashi “Shiro” Shirogane, is gay.
Because Shiro was a teacher at the pilot academy where the paladins train, the audience can assume that the other characters knew that he was gay all along and no one really cared that much about it. It surely is a brave new future that Voltron: Legendary Defender has mapped out for us. Vulture spoke with the show’s executive producers, Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, about their decision to reveal Shiro’s sexuality (and the fact that he was gay all along), plus what it means for the rampant Shiro and Keith shipping that goes on in the Voltron fan community.

But the show did receive some backlash for killing off another gay character. Critics accused the show of queerbaiting. The showrunner apologized. According to Pride.com:

Although fans were excited about the show having a queer lead character on it, they were rightfully upset to learn that his love interest (who was literally introduced to them this current season) was killed off after only being seen for a total of two scenes, according to The Mary Sue.
"There is no way for me to take away the hurt some of you have felt with the loss of Adam and from a bigger perspective how we fumbled a potentially larger positive social message," Dos Santos wrote in his apology.
