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?
Gina Torres arrives to fix everyone’s lives.
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!
Extreme highs and lows come with the first-love territory, and the softer moment that Toni and Cheryl spend on the couch is quite sweet. I’m often questioning why these two are together, and I think the real answer is less romantic and more troubling. Toni is a caretaker to Cheryl, and Cheryl is desperate to be loved by just about anyone.
Yes, Cheryl Blossom is the most interesting character right now AND NOT JUST BECAUSE SHE’S GAY (but that helps).
Last night’s Cheryl and Toni-less episode, while not all bad, was a bit blah and had very little of the content that I know you all come here to read about (gay stuff). So instead, let’s play a game of Top, Bottom, or Switch, shall we?
It’s Halloween in Riverdale — let’s have a freakin seance!!!! With a cursed puppet!!!!
The show has all the subtlety of a freak show. It’s horror-camp. It’s musical theater. And I absolutely mean all of those things as compliments.
The failures of family, the joys of friendship, and a nonsensical but incredible musical number—just another day in Riverdale!
The show’s season four premiere serves as a Luke Perry tribute and a reminder of the compelling themes pulsating beneath Riverdale’s chaos.
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!
Don’t you hate when you’re a teen and your teen friend’s murderous mother traps you in a dining room underneath her maple farmhouse to tell you all about her diabolical plan to destroy your hometown and accuses you of terrible sins that you must pay penance for in the form of an overnight game of life-or-death challenges in the woods?
Distinctly queer camp is increasingly part of Riverdale’s DNA. The gothic-glam horror keeps on outdoing itself.
Plus, Cheryl and Toni slow dance!
Oh great, now Toni’s in the farm, too.
Like Riverdale, Sabrina is paradoxically at its most enjoyable at its most off-the-rails and also in its more intimate, grounded character moments, and both shows have difficulty entwining the two.
Plus updates on: The Good Fight, Grey’s Anatomy, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Will & Grace, Jane the Virgin, Legacies, Roswell, Riverdale and Now Apocalypse!
The Baby Gays have been revealed! You have 48 hours to vote for your favorites!
All lesbian breakups on TV should be told in song and dance in my opinion.
Cheryl Blossom really encapsulates that “Game Of Thrones But Make It Teen Drama” essence that represents Riverdale at its finest.
