Plus updates on Coronation Street, Emmerdale, General Hospital, and The Young and the Restless!
The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences — like Hollywood itself, and mainstream TV criticism — continues to be dominated by a voting block of mostly straight white men. So, for the first time ever, we’ve decided to host our own Autostraddle TV awards to coincide with the Emmys.
Wynonna Earp is already renewed, Supergirl adds the first trans superhero to TV, Steven Universe is getting a movie, AvaLance lives, American Horror Story: Apocalypse (for real), Nafessa Williams always knows what to say, Tig Notaro on Star Trek: Discovery, queer Charmed, and big hopes for Rosa’s bi storylines on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
We’ve got 50+ Lesbian, Bisexual and Queer-ish Netflix TV shows streaming right now on the very internet you’re reading!
2017 was the best of times and the worst of times. LOL JK it was the absolute worst of times. But the queer TV was pretty good.
What self-respecting lesbian turns down a chance to sit in the same room as Rachel Maddow or Lana Winters?
Plus: Grey’s Anatomy’s 300th episode, keeping up with Annalise and her new potential gal pal, Jessica Szhor plays a lesbian again, there’s some queer women on The Girlfriend Experience, and American Horror Story: Cult marches grimly toward its final episode.
Does Annaliese Keating have a new gal pal? Maybe! Arizona Robbins, however, has none. None gal pals. Tara’s still alive on The Walking Dead, the Shannara gays are still gayin’, and Sarah Paulson gets her revenge on American Horror Story: Cult.
Plus, American Horror Story is covered in S.C.U.M., The Shannara Chronicles has bedazzled eyebrows, and more queer lady TV updates!
Fall TV is back in full swing and we’ve got updates on Broad City, American Horror Story, Grey’s Anatomy, The Shannara Chronicles, How to Get Away with Murder, and Ten Days in the Valley.
Also: Annalise Keating in a suit! And: American Horror Story, what in the world?
Also AHS: Cult keeps being terrifying for all the wrong reasons.
Mariah and Tessa smooched on The Young and the Restless, Maggie found love in an Irish place on Younger, and Ryan Murphy is still Ryan Murphy.
Thus, much like actual life, Trump’s presence in the show casts a dark shadow over an otherwise viable existence AND ALSO OVER LESBIANS.
Sarah Paulson will play Ally, one-half of a lesbian couple (her partner, Ivy, is played Alison Pill), who loses her shit when Donald Trump wins the presidential election.
7. The Ghost of Hope for the Future of America
The government should already be buying me my tampons, but they’re not, and so Mike Pence will.
“We wrote more obituaries for murdered trans women in 2015 than TV recaps for any single show we cover.”
The good, the bad, the ugly, and the revolutionarily boring queer TV storylines of the year.
Empire and American Horror Story get it wrong, Grey’s gets it right, and Carmilla and Laura still aren’t smooching enough!
