Hi there, sunbeams! We made it through the week!!
This week for The Drop, Shelli Nicole and Dani Janae talked about Jenna Wortham and Kimberly Drew’s Black Futures.
Have you been catching Drew’s fantastic Sundance 2021 coverage? She watched 4 Feet High, went to a panel with Rose Troche and Cheryl Dunye, watched Patti Harrison shine in Together Together, wrote about the Casey Affleck-shaped problem with The World To Come, and more! Also, Carmen wrote about My Name is Pauli Murray, a film that could have shone as brightly as Pauli themselves, if the film hadn’t, for instance, misgendered them throughout.
For this week’s retro review, Heather watched The Truth About Jane, my very favorite Lifetime movie about The Terrible Secret Burden Of Being A Teenage Lesbian.
Nic’s Batwoman reviews have been going strong, and this week Ryan put on her new batsuit!
In No Filter, Sara Ramirez continues to steal my heart.
Queer! Tiktok! Babes! (This is so much better than when I tried to do Tiktok and it just showed me people making weird crockpot “keto-friendly” recipes that involved actual bricks of cream cheese and so, so many chicken breasts.)
And then there were your comments!
