Plus: Petra woos JR some more, a season wrap-up on Madam Secretary, a witchy revelation on Charmed, Hen saves the day on 9-1-1, and a polyamorous bisexual surprise (in a good way!) on S.W.A.T.!
There’s nothing like a good old, grown up coming out story! You have 48 hours to vote for your favorites!
Plus the first updates of 2019 on grown-ish, S.W.A.T., Coronation Street, The Young and the Restless, General Hospital and Critical Role!
I considered titling this “Latinx Butches 2018: Welcome To The Thirst Trap,” but that didn’t seem very professional, you know?
Plus: Hen gets sucked into 9-1-1’s parade of sadness, Tegan loves Annalise (pass it on), Yaz is surely bisexual on Doctor Who, Sara Ramirez makes her glorious return to Madam Secretary, and more!

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.
I don’t know if you’ve felt it yet, but we certainly have. This is the year where lesbian, bisexual, queer, and trans women of color are taking over your television screens.
I have never seen Sara Ramirez more comfortable in her body. She looks like she’s at home in herself.
Grey’s Anatomy, grown-ish, Fresh Off the Boat, The Fosters, and Sara Ramirez in that tux!
2017 somehow turned out to be the best year ever for lesbian and bisexual women on television — but we’ve still got a ways to go.
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.
The pocket chain was just the beginning.
This Sunday is the day Kat Sandoval swaggers onto your teevee!
She’s joining the cast of Madam Secretary as a series regular. We don’t know much about her character from this picture but also we kind of know everything.
