Well, hello and welcome back to another Pop Culture Fix, your bi-weekly round-up of queer pop culture news.
+ Natalie gave you a comprehensive rundown of Los Angeles’ NWSL expansion team yesterday in Also.Also.Also, but I would like to add the important pop culture information that Cameron Esposito and Glennon Doyle have solid team mascot ideas. (Also please enjoy Uzo Aduba, Jennifer Garner, Eva Longoria, Natalie Portman and Jessica Chastain — all members of the new ownership group — at a USWNT game in 2019.)
I tried for that. No go. Gayngels might be best bet.

+ Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (aka The One Where Mae Whitman plays Ramona’s half-ninja lesbian ex-girlfriend) turns ten years old this week and the cast came together to do a full table read of the script.
+ Pose creator Steven Canals is working on a new project for FX: “a limited series exploring the historic effort by a group of medical professionals to change the definition homosexuality from being classified as a mental illness.”
+ Lena Waithe has written the latest version of a script for the musical drama Talent Show, which will star Cynthia Erivo, and which Natalie says allows her to move firmly back onto Team Love Is a Lie.
