Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, we get to connect with all our fandom faves and friends, thanks to HomeCon.
I’m going to start this post with the HomeCon announcement because it’s important and keeping us all sane this weekend. I am a little late to this because it started earlier today but it’s not too late to join in!
Rachel Skarsten and Paul Amos generously decided to start this virtual convention to honor all the conventions that have been cancelled due to COVID-19. Starting today and lasting until tomorrow, there will be lots of panels from our favorite shows.
In addition to the Wynonna Earp panel with Dom and Kat (pictured above), there will be panels from Lost Girl, Vagrant Queen, Riverdale, Shadowhunters, Supergirl, The Expanse, Batwoman, Arrow, Lucifer, and many more! Be sure to tune in!
All Rise is going to be producing a virtual episode to keep things going during this break:
Unfortunately, I cannot find a full recording of this, but this week Meagan has been posting many Batwoman-themed instagram stories, including a live stream including Ruby Rose! Meanwhile, Ruby comments of some of Meagan’s other videos…
Suranne Jones posted this deleted scene from Gentleman Jack and I don’t think I’ve missed a show more in my life.
A lot of celebrities have taken to Cameo to raise some money, including Briana Venskus!
With the cancellation of schools, student films are no longer being produced. To help, stars from our favorite Latinx shows (Vida, ODAAT, and Gentefied) are going to be reading their scripts on live stream!
Kat gave a little tour of her office space this week:
Xena: Warrior Princess will be getting a full-series marathon on SyFy!
And that’s it for Queer Beats this week! Always thorough, always professional, never random.
