Queer Beats – February 15, 2019

Queer Beats with Nikki Header

Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, our favorite ships got some Valentine’s Day attention and Killing Eve released a season 2 trailer!

Black Lightning

I’m starting to think Nafessa Williams must be a very busy woman because we are always getting new interviews with her! It’s amazing! If you love pretty pictures and hearing Nafessa speak more about how proud she is to play Anissa, this article is for you:

No matter if/how you celebrated Valentine’s Day this year, the holiday is definitely good at delivering cute social media content about our favorite ships. Black Lightning delivered with this cute ThunderGrace graphic:

The Bold Type

In case anyone was wondering, I miss Adena. And I almost missed this picture on my news feed until I saw Adena’s name. But this post from Blair Imani is pretty cool! I know Adena is not a real life human but I’m proud of her anyway!

Grey’s Anatomy

I really thought including Amy Acker in my last Queer Beats was a one-time deal but here we are again! Amy will be on an episode of Grey’s Anatomy as Derek’s fourth sister. Most signs point to her not being queer but I am always happy with new opportunities to see this face:

Killing Eve

Woo, it has been a great off season for Killing Eve! Sandra has won many awards, we were blessed with a plethora of Sandra/Jodie pictures, and now look at these:

We also got the best collective Valentine’s Day present ever of Killing Eve’s season 2 trailer. It’s so intimate and sensual!

Legends of Tomorrow

As my hard fought Give-Maisie-A-Queer-Role-So-She-Can-Be-On-LezWatchTV campaign continues, I would like to bring everyone’s attention to Maisie’s newest project: her short film titled Sunday’s Child.

It actually looks like the IndieGoGo page has already been fully funded, which is amazing. But keep looking out for other ways to support this awesome project!

One Day At A Time

The best Valentine’s Day post goes to ODAAT, which gave us this card:

This was truly one of my favorite moments of the new season. If you haven’t checked it out yet, go watch on Netflix!


TV Guide has been running a “Ship Bracket” (which is playing with fire, if you ask me) to find out everyone’s favorite ship. They included many queer couples and Deanoru was doing very well, beating out Barry and Iris of The Flash, but eventually fell to Oliver and Felicity from Arrow. However, the Runaways twitter was a good sport about it:

Sadly, a queer couple did not win the final bracket (but Jake and Amy from Brooklyn Nine-Nine did, which is arguably second best).


I know the cast of Vida recently had a TCA event but instead of reporting on that I just want to say LOOK AT ROBERTA AND MISHEL!

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