“It’s not just sex, it’s love. It’s two people connecting, with four other people, and aliens.”
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.
Fan service and character development and sex sex sex, oh my!
Everyone is acting stupid in Paris! Even OLIVER!
But seriously, when are we getting a musical episode?
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.
Kat says she’s queer out loud twice! Jacqueline and Jane are in love! (Just kidding!) ((Am I?))
Can someone please let Kat speak for herself? Thanks.
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.
The future of Kadena is uncertain (but not doomed).
Please sign my petition demanding a musical episode of “The Bold Type.”
I like to power up my spirit by swooning at the TV. Maybe you do too?
Everyone’s trying to be more emotionally honest with themselves and others in the strongest episode of the season.
Season two has figured out what to do with Jane, but it would be cool if it could also figure out what to do with Adena.
It’s not perfect, and last week’s episode on Kat’s identity really missed the mark, but there’s a lot to love about this queer, feminist show.
“Rose Colored Glasses” bites off way more than it can chew.
Emotional honesty is sexy.
It’s gonna be cool for the summer with all these TV shows featuring lesbian, bisexual and queer female characters.
How will you ever choose?!
