+ How two High School Musical actors brought Disney’s first gay love song to life.
Excited for the rise of lesbian reality tv shows but, they couldn’t find one black femme or stud in Tampa, FL?? Kinda hard to believe lol. At this point I think black LGBTQ+ representation in reality tv might come by 2050….
Florida and lesbians?! Im in! I am soooo excited for this and happy to see they DO have beautiful diverse women on the cast. I have been thinking about how a show like this needs to happen FOREVER.
I am here for it 👏
Saddened that you didn’t call out the clear lack of diversity amongst the cast of Tampa Baes.. How many shows are there featuring [L]GBT women with NO dark-skinned cast. There is 1 ambiguous person here but even then it’s such clear colorism. Ugh.
Yeah, they need to get their shît together and include a handicapped lesbian as well or I am quitting this show for season 2
