Y’all I have purchased the weirdest thing for myself and I know it sounds unhinged, but it’s amazing. It’s this space-age looking goggle-mask you put on your head, and it heats up and also does pressure and even vibration of you want. Kind of like an eyeball massager? My neurologist recommended it for my migraines, and I was like, “If I’m going to spend 60 dollars on something I don’t need, it’s going to be a new video game.” But then I got it anyway because I’m a sucker but it is actually so cool. Anyway I’m wearing it on my head right now and typing. I wonder how many words I typed correctly? Here’s your Pop Culture Fix!
+ Director Emma Seligman, of Shiva Baby fame, is making a new movie called Bottoms about “two teenage girls who start a fight club at school for the purpose of winning over cheerleaders.” And! It will be queer! Like Bring It On! But: “fun, more raunchy depictions of queer women”
+ The inside story of provocative lesbian nun thriller Benedetta.
+ As a bisexual woman, Derry Girls gave me the LGBTQ+ representation I never had.
+ We need the queerness of Sailor Moon now more than ever (also this article teaser made me laugh out loud for real: “In the name of the moon, I punish anyone who won’t say gay!”)
+ Tomb Raider needs to hurry up and give Lara Croft a girlfriend already.
+ Lilly Singh on coming out as bisexual in her 30s, mental health and defining success. (Warning: auto-play video here in 2022 somehow.)
+ Nicola Coughlan is going to miss playing Derry Girls wee lesbian as much as we’re going to miss watching her. (Supposedly. I have my doubts. Derry Girls is consistently the funniest thing I’ve ever seen besides maybe Golden Girls. I am very sad it’s ending!)
+ Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert took a hard stand on Joy’s sexuality in Everything Everywhere All At Once.
There was one aspect of the movie’s impact that Daniels did want to guide along, and it involved the plot point surrounding the sexuality of the teen character, who is gay. While Everything Everywhere All at Once had yet to secure a distributor in China, the pair were adamant that it could only do so with censors allowed her sexuality to remain a part of the story. “It’s not up to us if the movie is released in China, but all we said was that you can’t cut the gay storyline,” Scheinert said… “The movie doesn’t work without it.”
+ The Ultimatum star Rae Williams comes out as bisexual during emotional show reunion.
+ Every theory about who will be Valkyerie’s queen in Thor: Love and Thunder. (Carmen will be happy to see Carol Danvers on that list, even though she’s so supportive of my Carol/Maria shipping that she sent me their pair of Funkos!)
+ Awesome list! 11 queer animated shows to stream right now. ‘
+ Netflix has saved another queer thing, this time it’s CW’s Glamorous. Still will never forgive them for cancelling One Day at a Time, though. :)
+ Suranne Jones and Sophie Rundle on Gentleman Jack’s radical queerness in season two.
Ooh a show about a queer lady fight club? Count me in!
Plus plus plus! ND Stevenson’s Nimona movie was rescued by Netflix and is going to be finished & put out by Annapurna!!!!!!
the hype is real
Thank you for the pop culture update! But we need more information about these magic goggles! No lie, screen staring killing my eyeballs and anything that helps me see these ladies a bit more is much appreciated…
I second this!! I already have a weird space-age sailor-moon-esque headpiece for my migraines, but I want the eyeball massage please
this was a fabulous round up
Have y’all seen the trailer for Crush with Rowan Blanchard and Auliʻi Cravalho? It looks so cute!
It looks amazing, we need more of those films.
The picture on the article reminded me that I have never seen Bring It On. I tried to find it online (streaming) and could not find it. I couldn’t even find the DVD on Amazon. Thank god for libraries. They have it! I put it on hold and look forward to watching it. I am worried by the fact that a lot of newer TV shows are not being sold as DVDs.
I second that ,i miss out on a lot of shows, even if u would have netflix germany , i still cant see every netflix USA shows and hulu ans hbo , showtime etc doesnt gave a german distributor.
Our berlin libraries are quite good as well.
