Welcome to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, ClexaCon continued to drop big guest announcements, Deanoru celebrated the holidays, and we finally got a One Day At A Time sneak peek!
I hope everyone has enjoyed a week of bliss with 12 new episodes of Runaways to binge. Additionally, we’ve continued to get great Deanoru media coverage as well! We’ve got Christmas-themed Deanoru:
Princess-themed Deanoru from the official Runaways account that clearly ships them as much as we do:
She also spoke with TVLine (full article here) about why Deanoru is so important to Nico:
I feel like after her sister passed, all Nico has known was darkness. She was alone, she was isolated, she didn’t have anybody to lean on, and when she reconnected with Karolina, she finally saw the light again. That is what Karolina is to Nico — she’s the light of Nico’s life, and as well as for Karolina, Nico guides her through the darkness. I think that’s why they make such a powerful dynamic. To Nico, Karolina is her only light now, especially with everything that’s been happening, so she really wants to make things work with her.
On a non-Deanoru topic (shocking, I know), Ariela Barer continues to be the best. I already love Gert but Ariela, who identifies as queer, continues to push that Gert may not identify as straight.
I’m also very much here for the Janet/Tina ship. Looks like Brittany Ishibashi is too!
IMPORTANT REMINDER: One Day At A Time returns February 18. This week, we got our first picture from the new season and it includes much-anticipated guest appearances from Gloria Estefan, Melissa Fumero, and Stephanie Beatriz:
Merry Kat-mas! Enjoy these really cute pictures of Kat being cute just because she can:
And finally, Clexacon has continued to drop their guest announcements with the addition of Kat, Dom, and Emily Andras.
That’s it for Queer Beats this week! Always thorough, always professional, never random.
