Stacy and I bought a pecan pie “for Thanksgiving” over the weekend, and have now eaten half of it. Alas! I hope you enjoy this Pop Culture Fix as much as I enjoyed eating pie for breakfast!
+ I gotta be real with you: This movie is the thing I am most excited about this holigay season. I love Lifetime Christmas movies and I love gays on TV and I love fan fiction and this looks like the best of them all. Here’s the official description:
Marketing whiz Alma Beltran (Elise Bauman) and Christmas tree whisperer Charlie Freemont (Tattiawna Jones) cross paths when Charlie finds the perfect tree for the Maine Governor’s Holiday Celebration – right in Alma’s back yard. While they initially spar, romantic sparks soon begin to fly between the two women as the enchanting tree and some Christmas fairy dust from the town’s pâtissière extraordinaire (Ricki Lake) bring out the best in them and spark each other to take leaps of faith and fight for love and Christmas magic.
And here’s the trailer!
+ But wait, there’s more! Ali Liebert’s in a LESBIAN HALLMARK CHRISTMAS MOVIE!
+ Holy night! There’s another one! Tello’s Christmas at the Ranch!
+ Okay fine, I’m equally excited about Mary becoming Poison Ivy on Batwoman. A lot of my own personal interests are being addressed on TV right now!
+ Well! Whomost is she, Shonda? Is she G A Y?

+ Y’all, what a roundtable! Tessa Thompson, Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Hudson, and more: “sharing and swapping advice on industry anxieties (COVID or otherwise), the moment when success seemed furthest away, and the head of state they all admire.”
+ HBO Max’s 12 Dates of Christmas features a handful of LGBTQs this year.
