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?
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!
This is groundbreaking. Women of color finally being given space to find beauty and strength and comfort in each other for once — well, those are the kind of love stories we can’t wait to hear more of.
Killjoys, Queen Sugar, Claws, Grand Hotel, Ambitions, and Burden of Truth!
And an update on Ackley Bridge!
Plus updates on Burden of Truth, grown-ish, Ackley Bridge, and Tessa Thompson’s version of Eartha Kitt on Drunk History.
Summer TV is here and you know what that means: Queen Sugar! Claws! grown-ish! Burden of Truth! And, weirdly, the end of The Bold Type’s third season.
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.
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.
Last night Queen Sugar concluded its third season. To mark the occasion, we got together to hash out what the hell is going on with Nova Bordelon and the realities of bi/pan erasure for black women characters on television.
Also: Quiet Ann’s heart is shattered on Claws, Ackley Bridge is a little bit sweet and a little bit scary, Remy and Nova finally broke up on Queen Sugar, and updates on your favorite daytime TV!
Plus updates on Queen Sugar, Younger, The Young & the Restless, General Hospital, and Critical Role.
Plus: Mariah and Tessa have a short-lived reunion on Y&R, The Originals gives us a queer wedding, what’s the damn deal with UnREAL, why has Queen Sugar abandoned Nova’s bisexuality, and more!
Plus updates on Queen Sugar, Legion, and Imposters
It’s gonna be cool for the summer with all these TV shows featuring lesbian, bisexual and queer female characters.
We started with 64 couples, now we’re down to 32. Did your picks make the cut? Does your fave have what it takes to make it to the Sweet 16? It’s survive and advance, people! Survive and advance!
Here’s part two of the first round of QUEER KISSING MARCH MADNESS!
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.
Plus some thoughts on this season of Queen Sugar!
