Queer Beats – July 12, 2019

Queer Beats with Nikki Tantum Header

Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, Nikki takes a break from celebrating the USWNT to focus on the television world’s preparation for SDCC and a new queer con announcement!

Before we jump into Queer Beats, I want to shout out the US Womens National Soccer Team who decided to not only win a World Cup trophy this week but also bless our little queer lives in every other way. Also, a quick shout out to my Twitter followers who have persevered through my soccer spam.

Additionally, a new queer convention was announced this week and it’s on the East Coast! QFX! Of course, I am big fan of FlameCon (the other queer East Coast con, in New York City) but I love an opportunity to be in the sunny weather:

Batwoman

SDCC is getting as hype as I am for some new Batwoman content:

She even got her own TV Guide Comic-Con themed cover this week:

Check out the other covers for more of our favorite badass ladies!

A major announcement in the television world this week revolved around the creation of HBO Max, which will now be the VOD home to many shows, including future episodes of Batwoman. I’m not a fan of my favorite CW shows being split across multiple apps but we will have to deal with it:

Euphoria

If you are enjoying HBO’s Euphoria, then you will probably agree that Hunter Schafer‘s performance opposite Zendaya has been amazing. Here’s an article to reinforce what we all already know:

Grey’s Anatomy

Okay, okay, you got me, this has nothing to do with Grey’s Anatomy. I really wanted to list this under One Tree Hill because it was always my teenage dream for Hilarie Burton‘s Peyton to be queer but I stuck with the show where she actually played a lesbian. Anyway, can the Hallmark Channel please make our dreams come true?

RED

Is it possible for me to see RED cast photos and not share them?

Steven Universe

A new SU poster means we are one step closer to the movie! Hooray!

Also, if you’re going to be at SDCC, please make sure to sing “Stronger Than You” in my honor.

Vida

I think I might have an addiction to any potential Emma/Nico (or Mishel/Roberta) content and I’m not going to apologize for it.

Everyone’s kinda like 😐

And that’s it for Queer Beats this week! Always thorough, always professional, never random. Make sure to keep an eye out for future SDCC updates from Mika!

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.
