It’s Sunday! A fun day! I hope you’re all getting a little bit of rest and drinking plenty of water — on Friday, my doctor told me I needed to be drinking FOUR LITERS OF WATER — and that you’re watching season three of One Day at a Time, if you haven’t watched it yet. It will make you happy and give you so many chances for cathartic cries, and that is a promise!
How about some good gay news to close out your weekend?
+ ICYMI, the new trailer for Killing Eve is here and oh so queer.
+ We’ve known for a minute that the CW is is doing a Nancy Drew show. Friday they announced that they’d cast the co-lead, Leah Lewis, and please just take a look at how gay the description of her character is. Her name is George. George.
Lewis plays George, a tough, tattooed girl from the wrong side of the tracks who felt personally wronged by Nancy in high school. George now finds herself a suspect in the killing along with her former nemesis, forcing her to team up with Nancy to track the culprit and clear their names… and it just may be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
+ Asia’s first LGBT+ video streaming platform that bills itself as the continent’s “gay Netflix” plans to expand this year into India.
+ The Independent chatted with Ellen Page about The Umbrella Academy, but also about Mike Pence and gay and trans rights.
+ People tweeted the funniest photo manips at Stephanie Beatriz after Thursday night’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine. This one is my favorite.

+ Travelodge and Survey Monkey have stopped advertising with The Daily Mail after their unapologetic posting of transphobic articles.
+ I never get tired of seeing the Dictionary destroy bigots.
