Pop Culture Fix: Kat Barrell and Kyana Teresa Bring Great Tidings of Lesbianism in Hallmark’s First Gay Kiss

Here is your first Pop Culture Fix of the week, queerdos! (That’s queer + weirdos, obviously.)

+  Wynonna Earp‘s Kat Barrell and Shadowhunters‘ Kyana Teresa, who play Joy and Zoey on Hallmark’s The Good Witch, shared a kiss on last night’s season finale, a first for the Wholesome Christmas Network. (The fans of this show are called GOODIES!)

+ Savannah Smith confirms her Gossip Girl reboot character is a lesbian.

+ David Harbour, Anthony Mackie, and Tig Notaro to star in the Netflix ghost movie We Have a Ghost.

+ V. hype about this new Hulu movie, Love In Color:

“It’s exciting to be making a movie that’s full of queer characters where the story isn’t about coming out,” Cohen says of the project. “I love a coming out story, I have one myself. But this is a new kind of comedy and a fresh take on how we tell stories about queer kids in high school.”

+ Fear Street’s lesbian love story was always central to the Netflix trilogy.

+ The Owl House just keeps doing it!

+ On the Good One Podcast #HotTig (Notaro) reflects on her legendary 2012 Largo set and her new animated HBO special.

+ Atypical’s Brigette Lundy-Paine is ready to grow up and get weird.

+ Loki almost included lots of bi, alien sex.

+ And, finally, a new music video from Brandi Carlilie. Carmen shared this in Also.Also.Also on Thursday but I didn’t want you to miss it!

  1. You confused me for a minute there with the Happy Death Day thing! The Netflix movie is called We Have A Ghost and it’s being directed by Happy Death Day’s Christopher Landon.
