Queer Beats – August 23, 2019

Queer Beats with Nikki Tantum Header

Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, The L Word: Generation Q dropped a trailer and queer fandom lost their minds.

Gentleman Jack

Ever since Gentleman Jack aired, Shibden Hall in England has seen a huge increase in visitors. Local fans will be happy to hear that the estate will now be allowing fans into the Lightcliffe cemetery tower which holds a plaque honoring Ann Walker!

The L Word: Generation Q

The trailer to end all trailers was released this week:

Legit question: how come Jennifer Beals does not age?

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel also released a trailer this week, complete with lots of Susie content.

Orphan Black

I’m being very patient during this very long wait for new Orphan Black content but this week we were awarded with another clip!

Heli Kennedy spoke with Serial Box about what to expect from The Next Chapter:

Passage the Series

LezRepresent Podcast interviewed Hillary Esquina this week about her upcoming Tello series, Passage the Series:

LWTV also released an interview with Mandahla Rose, who is part of the Passage cast!

Pose

The second of season of Pose ended this week (sad), but we got this fun behind-the-scenes tidbit:

Supergirl

I honestly live for new Alex Danvers content. This is a plea for Azie to continue posting cute couple-y videos to keep us all alive until the new season.

Wynonna Earp

Dom attended Montreal Pride this week and looked as cute as ever:

Also, we received news that Emily Andras is developing a new show with Syfy. Knowing her track record (and the plot of this new show), I would say there is a 110% chance there will be queer characters.

And that’s it for Queer Beats this week! Always thorough, always professional, never random.

About Nikki Tantum

Nikki has always known two contradictory things to be true: queer TV can save lives and queer female cop/agent characters will be the death of all of us (looking at you Officer Haught, Director Danvers, Detective Sawyer, and Sameen Shaw). Her first dive into fan content was when she ran a secret Xanga blog dedicated to pictures of Lorelai Gilmore in the 7th grade. She has never looked back.
