The television landscape is changing rapidly. Where does that leave lesbian, bisexual, and trans women of color on TV? Where have been, and more importantly — where are we going?
Here’s what we loved this year and what we didn’t like very much at all. We’d love to hear your opinions too, obviously!
“They murdered someone together which was sex. I don’t understand what’s confusing here.”
Plus updates on All American, Legacies, Almost Family, Black Lightning, and This Is Us.
Also, Aisha Hinds is going to break your heart on 911. Plus updates on HTGAWM, Legacies, S.W.A.T., and the finale of American Horror Story: 1984.
Plus updates on Nancy Drew and HTGAWM!
Plus updates on: How to Get Away with Murder, Black Lightning, and don’t forget Kristen Stewart’s hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend!
How to Get Away With Murder is showcasing two black queer women — both at the height of their careers — grapple with power and their queerness. It’s rare to see a queer woman of color wrestle with either theme on TV but two… at the same time? Completely unheard of.
Plus updates on: 911, How to Get Away with Murder, American Horror Story, the season finale of Why Women Kill, and new gays to look out for on Nancy Drew!
Plus updates on: American Horror Story, Almost Family, Why Women Kill, and How To Get Away With Murder!
Plus, American Horror Story: 1984 and Why Women Kill!
Queer women’s television has grown significantly in recent years. Still, we’ve watched our best continue to be sidelined by a straight white male majority that won’t pay attention to queer stories, women’s stories, stories about people of color. Well, no more my friends!
Sometimes you just wanna feel the heat with somebody who loves you.

Plus: Margaret Cho on an extra queer episode of High Maintenance, Clea DuVall on Broad City, Mel Vera is back on her bullshit on Charmed, S.W.A.T. gets real gay, a sapphic Mermaid triple spoon on Siren, a peek at Ellen Page in Umbrella Academy, and more!
Plus ladies kissing on How to Get Away With Murder and Siren, and an update on General Hospital!
Plus: All American continues to showcase some of the best queer storytelling on TV, HTGAWM threatens Tegan’s life, Tig Notatro: Space Butch is back on Star Trek, Siren is getting closer to gay mermaids, and Legacies unburies a gay.
How about a little Valentine’s Day inspiration from your favorite fictional couples?
Plus: Gal pals smooching on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, near queer makeouts on Siren, soft butches in space, Chelsea Handler channeling Bette Porter, and a very sad Shondaland elevator.
Days later, I remain astounded by these writing choices and their cruelty.
