All I’ve wanted since Euphoria began was for Sam Levinson to write with people who actually have the characters’ perspectives — this episode shows why.
In the first three episodes of the new season, Emily is still a chaotic, emotional, silly, passionate poet who is deeply in love with her sister-in-law and not afraid to show it.
Caught up in the inconsistencies in its own mythologies, the Netflix fantasy-thriller-teen drama-musical struggles to come to a compelling or coherent close.
Fun and frustrating, derivative and surprising, Netflix’s new ballet show Tiny Pretty Things is undone by its paradoxes.
The Wilds is sometimes cheesy, sometimes saccharine, all times dramatic as hell.
For me, what makes the show so unique are the moments Valeria spends with Cristina and Paca and all the other trans women around them. It’s watching this cross-generational support among trans women that’s so important for us but so rarely portrayed on screen.
“Does this place ever stop being weird?!?”
Are they dating, are they in love, are they having sex, are they best friends? It’s one of We Are Who We Are ‘s queerest pleasures that it’s not about definition.
Elena pushes back on all this, saying she doesn’t want to change how she dresses and that actually Maeve is bisexual, but they say that the term lesbian is “an easier sell” because it’s “more cut and dry.”
If you’re expecting the gay episode of Hulu’s horror anthology to be like the gay episode of Black Mirror, I must assure you: We ain’t in San Junipero anymore.
I guess what I’m learning about myself is that I’m not quite cut out for these slow-moving, period piece crime dramas. I like my crime shows to be procedural — if there are eight episodes, I want eight crimes. And I like my women front and center, thank you very much.
Ratched stabs, cuts, bludgeons, and mutilates what was past. The show is brutal, but provides relief for its queer women. Unfortunately, its characters of color and disabled characters are not granted the same care.
By pairing a visceral portrayal with thorough descriptions of OCD, “Pure” becomes a teaching tool as well as a delightful dramedy. It’s also just a really good and gay story about a 20-something trying to figure out how to be a good person.
The first half of Lucifer’s fifth season is heaven and hell for the gays.
Between the female friendships and sweet queer romance, Trinkets Season 2 didn’t have to steal my heart because I gave it freely.
It’s all so well done, and between the intense female friendship conversation and a few other things I can’t mention without giving too much away, I felt like I was seeing aspects of my queer life I don’t usually get to see on screen.
With a total of five lesbian, bisexual, queer and trans Black women characters in the main cast, Lena Waithe’s “The Chi” certainly made history this summer. But did making “The Chi” gayer turn it into a better show?
You can scroll through my top ten shows and know exactly who I am and who I’ve been — a consistently queer, formerly goth, recovering musical theater nerd with a penchant for dry humor and scary women. Sharing this list is like showing you my diary if all my love poems were about Sandra Oh.
A prime selection of Mean Moms and Women Who Could Beat Me Up.
If this were completely honest, it would just be Buffy the Vampire Slayer listed ten times.
Is it a coincidence that this list of “women I loved who deserved better” is comprised of women of color — and almost exclusively queer women of color? Given the intertwined histories of sexism, racism, and homophobia in this country, I think not.
