Pop Culture Fix: Lesbian Jewel Thief Alert! On Peacock’s “Leopard Skin!”

It’s Monday and here’s your first Pop Culture Fix of the week!

+ Natalie has, once again, spotted sapphics in only ten quick frames in the trailer for Peacock’s new series, Leopard Skin. Her BiVision™️ remains unmatched! The official description of the series is: “Fleeing a botched diamond heist, a criminal gang takes hostages captive in a remote Mexican paradise; secrets, betrayals, and desires surface.” Totally relatable. Nothing reveals my own personal hidden desires like the adrenaline of a failed jewel robbery. I’m like Catwoman in that way. We have no info about the gays yet, but I am working on it!
