+ Earlier this week, I asked my wife if she knew about “this new country music soap Monarch on Fox”? and she was like, “Yes, sweetheart, because you talk about it ALL THE TIME.” And yeah, I guess I do. It’s just. that this show is so nuts! It captivates me even though it’s not very good representation! The best part, of course, is Beth Ditto as GiGi Roman — and I was so happy to see this interview with her in NBC Out about her brilliant performances and LGBTQ rep on TV. About auditioning for the role, she said: “I was like, ‘Well, that’s me. I know this person. I’m actually Southern. I grew up with country music. I grew up going to the honky-tonks surrounded by music. I think all of the parts that I’ve done have been for pretty much Southern women, and I know Southern women — these are my grandparents, my aunts.”
+ Oh man, this is gonna be something.
