These were entire TV episodes that paid off queer storylines that had been building, or approached lesbian and bisexual and trans stuff in ways we’ve never really seen on-screen, or expanded queer storytelling into genres where it’d been lacking, or utilized new TV platforms in queer ways.
There were songs and bike races and hot air balloon rides and promises of forever and allusions to some of the most romantic tropes and movies of all times.
2017 was the best of times and the worst of times. LOL JK it was the absolute worst of times. But the queer TV was pretty good.
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.
Has anyone heard of that show The Bold Type?
Well and that was a damn near perfect season of television.
Waverly and Nicole have to work together to try to save Wynonna…the only problem is, they don’t remember her.
There are now four queer women on this show and none of them are dead!
Bet ya didn’t see that coming!
It’s time for a little Earp family history lesson, kids.
Oh hey, how about that season three renewal?
You didn’t expect to have your heart broken and healed and broken and healed, over and over and over again, when you started watching a sci-fi western for the kissing girls, now did ya?
The goo can’t make up its mind so Wynonna and Waverly decide for it.
Waverly, what in the bleeding heck is going on with you?!
Spiders and scissoring. Just another day in Purgatory.
Now with 100% more Tamsin!
We’ve got around 30 lesbian, bisexual and queer female characters in this Summer 2017 TV Preview that’ll keep you cool for the summer, even though it’d be even cooler if there were more than 30 and they all had bigger parts!
