Welcome to your weekly pop culture fix, a journey into the deep secrets and struggles of our souls.
+ Queer Eye has dropped the trailer for Season Three, which returns March 15th, and they will be giving the Fab Five treatment to a black lesbian who says, while wearing cargo shorts, that she has given up on kind genuine people. I watched the trailer twice and cried both times, how is your morning going?
+ Wow, yet another Netflix trailer with lesbian representation! Netflix has released the trailer for “Something Great,” a romantic comedy from the creator of Sweet/Vicious! She wanted to make a film in which the protagonist, played by Gina Rodriguez, “chooses herself.” Most importantly though is that one of her two best friends, played by DeWanda Wise, has a girlfriend!!! Also, LIZZO!
+ Will The L Word reboot fill the need for lesbian representation on our TV screens? “Tell it to the bees” comes out on May 3rd, and tells the story of two women discovering their love for each other in 1950s small town Britain.
+ Some Theater for you: In Alan Cumming’s ‘Daddy’ and ‘The Cake,’ LGBT Couples Get Real—And Unreal
+ Finally: Riverdale has halted production in the wake of Luke Perry’s unexpected death from a stroke. I’ve done a LOT of red carpet interviews in my life and Perry stands out in my mind as one of the most genuine, open, kind people I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking with in that bizarre context, and his death is very sad.
