Happy mid-week, friends! I usually have half a cup of coffee every day, but this morning I’ve had two because I have a migraine, and I honestly feel like I am operating at super speed right now. Excited to crash into SUCH a nap later this afternoon! Also excited to share today’s Pop Culture Fix with you!
+ There’s a queer character in the new Showtime series Yellowjackets, which IndieWire says is full of teen girls, dark secrets, and cannibalism. Her name is Taissa Turner and she’s played by real life queer Jasmin Savoy Brown. Valerie and/or Riese and/or Kayla are gonna write about it, so please standby for that!
+ Top Chef All-Stars winner Mel King is gonna be on Sesame Street: “to introduce their first ever Asian American muppet named Ji Young — she’s 7 years old, Korean, and loves tteokbokki! I’ll be in the kitchen cooking with the best sous chef in town: Cookie Monster!”
+ King Richard is an Intimate Look at the Man Behind the Williams Phenoms. (I am definitely not just linking this so I can share this photo of Serena and Olympia which is not gay in any way but I do what I want.)
+ Taylor Swift’s Red (Taylor’s Version) is a sweeping, profound time machine of an album. (Is THIS gay? I would argue yes, and so.)
