It’s Vida’s season finale, but already I want more. We need more of this thoughtful, gut wrenching, unapologetic, queer, brown show in our lives.
“Emma’s grief; her inherited, internalized homophobia; and her sexual frustrations — they are all tangled together. And that’s real, because in life how can you tell? Where does one pain stop and another begin? There’s no easy box to check or line to draw.”
Emma confesses that the scars of internalized homophobia can span generations. She also finally sleeps with Cruz. Lyn learns that you can’t turn your back on your own forever.
It isn’t just about the hot sex — though the sex is very hot — it’s about creating spaces where Latinx queer bodies can feel ownership. It’s tearing down shame. It’s about saying that our love, our sex, our sticky sweat is valid. It’s about fighting tooth and nail for pleasure in a world that would rather us be criminalized for waking up in the morning.
Do you know who’s a perfect human? Eddy is a perfect human! This is my hill and I’m willing to die on it.
We have six full weeks to dive deep into this queer Latinx prestige drama about family, sex, love, and grief. Let’s get this… funeral party?… started!
