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.
These were entire TV episodes that paid off queer storylines that had been building, or approached lesbian and bisexual and trans stuff in ways we’ve never really seen on-screen, or expanded queer storytelling into genres where it’d been lacking, or utilized new TV platforms in queer ways.
Jasika Nicole, Jazz Jennings, Laura Zak, Shadi Petoski, and Tyler Ford open up about the joy of working on Danger & Eggs and what it would have meant to them when they were younger.
Co-creator, Shadi Petosky is a trans woman and the cast is absolutely packed with queer and trans voice actors like Stephanie Beatriz, Jasika Nicole, Angelica Ross, Cameron Esposito, Rhea Butcher, Tyler Ford, Jazz Jennings, Laura Zak and Petosky herself.
