Queer Beats – April 24, 2020

Queer Beats with Nikki Header

Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, the Bold Type got a season 4 return date and Motherland: Fort Salem continued to deliver on the content we deserve.

The Bold Type

The Bold Type is coming back to us in June and I’m soooo happy!

Dickinson

The power of blonde/brunette queer couples is strong…

Legends of Tomorrow

To celebrate Legends coming back this week, Jes and Caity went live on Instagram!

Motherland: Fort Salem

Another week, another missed opportunity to watch Motherland: Fort Salem. I say this @ myself who still hasn’t started it, yet fawns over all the gifs and clips on Twitter. Good thing lots of new cast interviews came out this week!

Also, check out this interview with Taylor Hickson:

And in case you still haven’t had enough of Taylor…

Pose

I’m listing this under Pose just because it currently has the most trans actors playing trans characters… but check out GLAAD’s list of shows in the past year that include these actors!

I would also like to point out that this is something pretty easy to see right here on LWTV. For MANY years back! Quick note: not everyone in that linked list identifies the same way as their character, but many of them do!

Supergirl

I don’t know about y’all, but I miss Nicole Maines‘ presence in my weekly life so I was excited to see a new TV Junkies interview with her!

Take My Wife

I gotta say, I have been really enjoying Cameron Esposito‘s social media presence during the quarantine…

Westworld

Westworld has been renewed for a fourth season (and possibly will run for up to six seasons)!

Wynonna Earp

Kat Barrell read a very special message from Melanie Scrofano on her Twitter this week…

Also, please enjoy these pictures of Kat’s audition for Nicole Haught:

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

About NikkiT

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.
