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.
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.
Take a break from this hellscape of a week and swoon with some queer women who get their happily ever afters.
CBS already canceled Doubt, but the full first season is airing this summer and it’s breaking major ground for trans representation.
It’s also time to catch up with the women of Claws!
Also: Jen Richards and Angelica Ross join Laverne Cox on Doubt, Queen Sugar keeps getting it right, and Josh sleeps with Maggie’s straight girl on Younger.
It’s a dark world, but there’s hope in stories, including lesbians on shows like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “The Good Fight,” and “Imposters,” an epic miniseries about the LGBT rights movement and a non-binary character on “Billions.”
