It’s supposedly Wednesday! Here’s you Pop Culture Fix!
+ Netflix has dropped the trailer for Homemade, a collection of short films made in isolation, including one from Kristen Stewart.
+ Terry Crews says Brooklyn Nine-Nine has scrapped all the season eight episodes that have been written so far in light of this revolutionary moment in history. Vulture did some great work around cop TV recently. Check out: Kathryn VanArendonk’s Cops Are Always the Main Characters, Matt Zoller Seitz’s Good Riddance to Cops, and Kathryn VanArendonk’s 21 TV Procedurals to Watch That Aren’t About Police.
+ Variety’s Virtual TV Fest Pose panel was super emotional, especially when the stars talked about Candy’s death. (Related: Zendaya talks to MJ Rodriguez about Euphoria, Pose, and learning her own worth.)

+ Queer chef Melissa King won Top Chef last week — if you want to read how awesome it was, Natalie’s got you covered — and this Insta video of Melissa telling Padma to leave her lipstick on her cheek is the cutest dang thing.
+ Melissa also came out as gender-fluid on Instagram today: “Some days I feel like a grandma 👵🏼, and other days I embrace my inner grandpa🧓🏼🕺🏻. I use the pronouns she/her, but am also comfortable with they/them. I cringe a little when I’m sir’ed or ma’amed but understand it’s often said out of politeness. I am highly uncomfortable when I walk into a women’s public restroom and get mistaken for as a man (cannot tell you how many times this happens) and appreciate a gender neutral bathroom. I never shop in the women’s section and find it difficult in the men’s. I blush when my 4 year old nieces call me “handsome” or respond with “a prince!” when asked what I should be for Halloween. I am a King and not just because it’s my last name, but somedays there’s a Queen in me that just wants to wear her damn crown 👸🏻.”
+ Laverne Cox, Janet Mock, Chaka Khan, Miss Major, and Hannah Gasby will headline Netflix’s first ever Pride Special, benefitting OutRight, The Marsha P Johnson Institute, and the Trans Justice Funding Project.
+ A new Scream??
+ The Handmaid’s Tale season four trailer is here, if you can handle any more trauma right now.
