This Sunday is the day Kat Sandoval swaggers onto your teevee!
What self-respecting lesbian turns down a chance to sit in the same room as Rachel Maddow or Lana Winters?
We go back in time with Alex and Kara to see what life was like for them ten years ago.
Plus: Grey’s Anatomy’s 300th episode, keeping up with Annalise and her new potential gal pal, Jessica Szhor plays a lesbian again, there’s some queer women on The Girlfriend Experience, and American Horror Story: Cult marches grimly toward its final episode.
Happy Birthday, Grey’s Anatomy. (And before you ask, yes, I managed to fit in Callie and Arizona’s brief shower sex scene from season six. )
Watching this show, I was transported to so many conversations with so many men, times when for any number of reasons I knew I couldn’t say “I don’t want to talk about this” and instead had to rely on a combination of playing dumb and playing up ladylike sensibilities, because I knew those would be taken more seriously than my agency as a person.
Maggie Sawyer says one final goodbye to Alex, and everyone cries. Also Lena Luthor wears a sweatshirt.
Get that lesbian vampire space opera out of your head and onto the interwebs!
Does Annaliese Keating have a new gal pal? Maybe! Arizona Robbins, however, has none. None gal pals. Tara’s still alive on The Walking Dead, the Shannara gays are still gayin’, and Sarah Paulson gets her revenge on American Horror Story: Cult.
The conversation of multi-dimensional black thought, and questions of isolation or not feeling “black enough”, is one that a lot black people are familiar with. It’s smart and nuanced. It’s also a conversation that fundamentally could not be filtered through a white lens. It could not exist on a television show that wasn’t like this.
You laugh and cry and swoon and be bewildered that you can watch this show for free on social media.
Kara is being worshipped by a cult, Sam is invited to Girls’ Night, Alex has a breakdown; it’s a lot, honestly.
Also this is your big chance to see Brittani Nichols in a cop uniform.
“Almost all of the characters are terrible people and the main values I share with them are workaholism and excellent hair. But sometimes when things fall apart, it can be nice to see things fall apart somewhere entirely different, again and again and again.”
We’re also checking in on Queen Sugar, How to Get Away With Murder, and Grey’s Anatomy!
In honor of the second season coming out tomorrow, I give you the coolest Stranger Things…er…things I’ve found on the internet.
She’s joining the cast of Madam Secretary as a series regular. We don’t know much about her character from this picture but also we kind of know everything.
It’s time for Alex and Maggie’s bridal shower, and Maggie decides to try to reconnect with her homophobic father.
Despite taking place 250 years ago, Hulu’s Harlots manages to depict indoor-market sex work more authentically than any show or movie I’ve seen (and I’ve seen a lot!) — queer stuff very much included.
Plus, American Horror Story is covered in S.C.U.M., The Shannara Chronicles has bedazzled eyebrows, and more queer lady TV updates!
