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?
Stab me, Mommi!
How about a little Valentine’s Day inspiration from your favorite fictional couples?
Sometimes, on a rare harvest moon when the mermaids sing and the unicorns take flight, we’re treated to really authentic, layered, swoon-worthy portrayals of bisexual women on our favorite shows.
Fan service and character development and sex sex sex, oh my!
Bicycles on TV mean independence, coming of age, letting go, transformation! Motorcycles on TV mean bad bois! So it’s no surprise that lesbian and bisexual TV characters are on bikes all the time.
Lesbian and bisexual gal pals caressing each other’s hair on TV and in movies has gotten a bad rap, probably because that’s what most fictional queer women have historically done instead of kissing on the mouth. But hairplay can also be really sexy!
All it takes is treating two women with scorching on-screen chemistry the same way you’d treat an opposite-sex pairing with that same rare and wondrous spark.
“Just needed a change. Got a new job. Fell in love.”
Person of Interest really, truly is going gay. Orphan Black’s fourth season continues to be spectacular. Brittani Nichols is in a new series on IFC. Raven-Symone returns to Black-ish. And even more queer TV!
No more subtext in Xena, and that’s a promise. Plus: Person of Interest finally gets a season five premiere date, queer fans of The 100 have raised so much money charity, a new Orphan Black trailer exists in the world, and even more news.
“If Karma isn’t gay for Amy, why does she act so gay for Amy?”
Stories include Moms Mabley, Carol, Taraji P. Henson on homophobic Empire backlash, Ellen Page and Allison Janney’s new movie, Ruby Rose’s blazer, an all-female Sherlock parody and more!
Person of Interest is fully going there with Root and Shaw, the first four minutes of Pretty Little Liars’ season 6B have been released, Jessica Jones is queer as hell & more!
We won a few, lost some promising ones, and where the hell is Renee Montoya?
Including a Hogwarts AU in which Shaw comes from Drumstrang to compete in the Triwizard Tournament!
Luisa returns to Jane the Virgin with a new girlfriend, Root gets closer to finding Shaw on Person of Interest, Nyssa gets engaged (and not in a good way) on Arrow, Maggie takes a pregnant woman home on Younger, and more!
The Black Sails finale had two queer characters winning at being pirates, The Good Wife is blowing it with Kalinda, and Tara survived another season of The Walking Dead!
The world’s largest fandom playground never stops giving!
