“VIDA” Teaser Has Everything: Butch Lesbians, Queer Latinas, Post-Mortem Lesbian Revelations

The first teaser for Starz‘s spring debut VIDA dropped today — and it’s just as queer as we promised it’d be! If make it gamely through all of the days between this day and May 6th, there’ll be a lot in store for us. For example, girls kissing with tongue.

The story concerns two Mexican-American sisters returning to their old neighborhood in East Los Angeles after their mother’s death. One of the sisters dates women (but doesn’t wanna label herself) and non-binary actor Ser Anzoategui plays the butch lesbian their mother was dating when she died, which seems to not be a thing everybody was aware of! It’s energetic and real and dark and we’re so stoked.

  1. I could be wrong, but isn’t the actor’s name Ser Anzoategui? I think “Daysi Cantu” is a character they used to play on another show.
