May 2017 Roundup

May 2017 Roundup

More shows with queers were canceled than queer females died this year, so that’s a win, of a sort.

Before we get into this month, let’s have our quick stats for May:

  • 4 characters died (out of 14)
  • 101 characters were added to the site
  • 25 shows were added to the site

What’s New?

The news that Maggie Sawyer wouldn’t be a regular in the next season of Supergirl went over like a kryptonite balloon. Sense8 season 2 was released, and we’re all slowly, slowly binge watching it.

Mika got to see One Day at a Time at the Paley Center (and you should read the recap if you haven’t had a chance), and next month she’ll go see a taping. Meanwhile Tracy is going to see a pre-release of the primere of the series finale for Orphan Black, and everyone’s excited to see season 2 of Wynonna Earp next month!

Alexa Flash Briefing

Do you have an Amazon Echo? You can now add LezWatch TV to your Flash Briefing! There will be more soon, like a real skill, but that’s still being certified. Apparently that was a little harder than expected.

New Feature: Sorting

We’re slowly rolling out new features, as fast we’re able to code them. The latest is the ability to re-order the results from the character or show archive page. If you wanted to see all the shows with dead queers, ordered by most to least deaths, you can! Apparently the most dangerous place for a queer female to be is a german prison, followed by New York city, as Hinter Gittern and Law & Order top the list of most deaths.

What Would You Like To See?

As always the call is out to you! What features would you like to see on the site? If you have an idea for an Amazon Skill (or any kind of app), let us know! Better ways of sorting? Bring it on!

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.
