The L Word: Generation Q featured 12 new queer characters of color in its first season, but media conversations about the show have largely remained driven by white points of view. So, we set out to change that.
It’s the season finale and we’ve got Roxane Gay, emotionally complicated sex, Bette Porter in hiking attire, Dani wanting to get married ASAP and honestly a lot of things that I can’t put in the excerpt because I don’t want to reveal any spoilers for people who haven’t seen it yet! Wheeee!
Gen Q has come the closest to featuring the kind of trans women representation I crave. All that needs to change is for the show to make the characters trans.
Bette would like some more wine!
“Generation Q” and “Work in Progress” are renewed and yes I literally screamed when I heard the news! I love it when we win!
This week on Generation Q, we get a special surprise blast from the past, young queer love, thruple MAYHEM and a very sloppy bro night as the town recovers from Bette Porter’s latest brush with scandal.
Behold! Our seasonal list of every single TV show — new and returning — featuring a queer or trans woman character!
Can something be both sad and hot? Time and again The L Word proves the answer is yes!

Riese joins Drew for this episode of “To L and Back: Generation Q” in which we discuss an episode that TRULY has it all — lots of fights, lots of sex, lots of surprises and a little bit of Robin Roemer!

“You can’t ask me that. Well, you can ask me. But I can’t tell you.”
We’re talking AGAIN about how threesomes would SERIOUSLY improve all of these love triangles! It’s not 2009 anymore, people! Everyone is getting messy in gay LA, but are they messy enough??
Who buys a bar and who gets punched in the face and who wears double-denim and who goes to church and who sat on a doll and who wants to reserve the Crystal Ballroom? There’s only one way to find out: reading this recap.
You all looked GREAT!
“Do we discuss issues of representation around trans lesbians, trans sex, and Latinx families? Yes. Do we discuss high-waisted pants and threesomes? Also yes.”
This episode has everything: pool sex, Olivia Thirlby, fun poppy lesbians, Jamie Clayton, the flu, Jillian Mercado, divorce papers, a gift card, an engagement party and a traditional lesbian building furniture with her bare hands!
“Being a woman, having a disability, being Dominican, and finally I can add to that magical layer being queer.” — Welcome to the Magic Club, Jillian!
