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!
Riese and Kayla talk about that Season Two finale, pros/cons re: Discovery in general, our hopes for the future, Tig Notaro in space, Three Hot Mommies and more pressing Star Trek processing.
Stab me, Mommi!
Our continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new lesbian life and new bisexual civilizations, and to boldly go where this franchise often vehemently refused to go before!
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.
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.
