August ’16 Roundup

August ’16 Roundup

Another month zipped by!

  • 18 new shows
  • 74 new characters

The new TV season in the US starts soon, so we should be adding more and more ‘new’ queers! Can’t wait. Except for the part where they’ll probably kill more lesbians…

New Features

Search! It’s better, it’s faster, it has no more Google Ads! Thanks to some fancy coding and a tool called ElasticSearch, searches for data now actually finds the right data. Like actor names and show names are now working properly. That was a little tricky but I’m glad we got it right.

Shows also include airdates now, so you can know if it’s all over or not. Naturally this made it to the stats and we can tell you thatĀ 34.2% of shows on this site are still on the air.

Speaking of shows, the thumbs up/down/meh on the show listing pages are now clickable. So are the stars. We’re making it easier for you to fall into the rabbit hole.

Finally … the whole site is HTTPS thanks to Let’s Encrypt. The NSA can’t spy on you looking up things here now.

About Mika A. Epstein

Mika has been deep in fandom since she could say 'Trekkie.' With decades experience in running fansites, developing software, and organizing communities, she's taken on the challenge of delving into the recesses of television for queers long forgotten. Making this site with Tracy is nothing short of serendipity. Mika lives with her wife and their cats in Southern California. Of course she has a hybrid, but she'd rather ride her bicycle.
