Queer Beats – August 30, 2019

Queer Beats with Nikki Header

Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, we got a glimpse of Alice in the upcoming Batwoman, Maisie Richardson-Sellers and CLAY released a queer music video, and Stumptown will most definitely be queer!


CW’s new show, Batwoman, premieres on October 6 (that’s 36 days away, for anyone who is counting). This week, we finally got some new art and a preview of Alice (played by Rachel Skarsten).


Carmilla and CLAIREvoyant fans will be happy to hear that Natasha Negovanlis will be returning to Love Fan Fest again next year!


AppleTV is releasing a new series about Emily Dickinson that looks pretty rad. Given the vague hints of queerness in the trailer, and Emily’s real life queer relationship, I hope the show fully explores a wlw relationship.

Legends of Tomorrow

Content from the new season of LOT is coming out (way too slowly for my personal preference) but, this week, some pictures and video were released of a (spoiler-free) scene involving Zari and Ava:

This jump into a fountain is pretty entertaining:

I know Zari isn’t queer but, like, wouldn’t it just be super fun if she was? *looks at LOT writers*

Speaking of characters who should be canonly queer, Clexacon announced this week that Maisie will be returning next year!

Maisie’s partner, the musician CLAY, released a new video that was directed and edited by Maisie herself! It is full of queerness and may or may not have made me tear up a little.


ABC confirmed that Colbie Smulders’ character in the upcoming series Stumptown will be bisexual, as she was in the comics. Hooray!

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