Pop Culture Fix: Girls5eva Will Get 3gether for A Second Season

Y’all I went to the MOVIES this weekend. First time in a year in a half! I saw In the Heights and enjoyed it very much; those big group numbers looked great on the big screen. Anyway, enough of your Random Valerie Fact Fix and on to the Pop Culture Fix.

+ Girls5eva was renewed for Season 2! I can’t wait 5 new episodes!

+ Dee Rees chatted with Vanity Fair about Pariah and more

+ I guess this Gossip Girl reboot is really happening.

+ Something I personally am very excited about, Robin from Stranger Things (aka Hawkins’ resident lesbian) is getting a prequel podcast.

+ Never Have I Ever Season 2 gets a premiere date

+ The Hollywood Reporter interviewed ‘Paris Is Burning’ Emcee Junior LaBeija about Pose, RuPaul, and more

+ Tiger King cast an actual non-binary person for a non-binary role, truly wild, pun intended

+ Atypical dropped its Season 4 trailer

+ Backstage did a highlight on Lena Waithe

+ Gina Yashere, one of the co-creators of Bob Hearts Abishola, talks about coming out and her new memoir.

+ Looks like Jen Richards finally achieved her dream of playing gay on TV so that her partner would vote for her in the Autostraddle Gay Emmys

+ Younger‘s Molly Bernard joins the long list of people who grew a deeper understanding of their own queerness as a direct result of playing queer

+ I almost missed this nugget of info but my friend Bridget from The TV Junkies is always looking out: It seems like Humberly González might be playing queer YET AGAIN because she loves us so, this time on the show Nurses
