Pop Culture Fix: According to Paris Jackson and Willow Smith, Everyone In Gen Z is Queer, We’ve Talked About This

Happy Wednesday aka Membership Drive Day aka Carmen Is The Official Proper-No-Longer-Interim Editor-in-Chief Day! Oh also it’s Pop Culture Fix Day!

+ Paris Jackson and Willow Smith had a one-on-one chat about their sexuality, dads, music and more on an episode of Red Table Talk that is, to quote our own Shelli Nicole, “low key iconic”

+ Cruel Summer‘s Harley Quinn Smith is bisexual, the kids are alright (Warning: Potential Cruel Summer finale spoilers in there. Tread carefully.)

+ Billie Eilish loves girls and I love Billie Eilish

+ Unbound Gravel saw its first non-binary/genderqueer category finisher in Abi Robins

+ Manifest was cancelled which I’d be more sad about if they hadn’t completely ignored Saanvi’s queerness this season

+ Being Thunder is a documentary about a two-spirit, genderqueer teen

+ Laganja Estranja from RuPaul’s Drag Race came out as trans, you love to see it

+ Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy will “Eat, Bang, Kill” their way into your hearts. Truly living the dream.

+ Writer/Producer/Showrunner Regina Hicks wrote for Chyler Leigh’s website about coming out and gosh I love that sentence

+ Feel Good‘s Mae Martin signed a first-look deal with their production collaborator Objective Fiction. PS. If you haven’t read their interview with Drew on this very website, I highly recommend you do so.

+ CW is already listing their fall premiere dates like they think time has meaning and any of us are planning that far in advance IN THIS ECONOMY

+ Okay this MIGHT be a stretch but I’m counting it as queer news because it involves Aimee Carrero who voices queer animated icon She-Ra but I’m very excited for her and Aabria Iyengar to join Ashley Johnson (another queer-playing fave) and other Critical Role regulars for mini campaign this summer!
