Happy Halloween! If your pet is wearing a costume, you know I want to see it in these Pop Culture Fix comments!


+ Chante Adams and Abbi Jacobson accepted the Visibility Award from the Human Rights Campaign on behalf of A League of Their Own this weekend!

+ Here’s the full speech:

+ GLAAD’s got a really nice list of asexual characters on TV and in video games! I hope it doubles by this time next year!

+ Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are teaming back up for a Grace & Frankie live-read to benefit the Jane Fonda Climate PAC.

+ Girls5Eva is coming back for a third season… on Netflix!

+ Women and people of color receive smaller budgets for TV shows, according to a new study.

+ How Doctor Who failed the unspoken queer relationship between Thirteen and Yaz.

+ Why Sigourney Weaver decided her character would be a lesbian in Call Jane.

+ Queer goths who fire up our dark souls.

+ How Sam Smith, Kim Petras and Steve Lacy Are are dispelling the “queer quota” myth.

+ The new Hulu/Onyx series The Other Black Girl is going to be gay. Our eagle-eyed Natalie spotted it: “[Brittany] Adebumola will take over as Malaika, an old lady at heart who is queer and constantly comparing notes on life goals.”

+ The CW will pull the plug on Nancy Drew after season four.
