Queer Beats – January 3, 2020

Queer Beats with Nikki Header

Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, Brigette Lundy-Paine was added to the QFX lineup, an old friend visited The L Word set, and Indya Moore entered Steven Universe.

Almost Family

Another week, another cute Amandie photo post from Victoria Cartagena!

Atypical

QFX announced that Brigette Lundy-Paine will be joining their convention in May. This is particularly exciting because it will be their convention debut!

Carmilla

Tello films, known for making queer films and tv series, has added Natasha Negovanlis to the cast of their upcoming movie, I Hate New Year’s.

The L Word: Generation Q

Autostraddle released this super interesting interview with Marja Lewis Ryan, the showrunner for the new L Word reboot. Of note: she discusses why fan-favorite Carmen will not be returning to the show!

In the sweetest news of the week, Erin Daniels visited the L Word set and I could barely keep back the tears. And at Dana’s, no less!

Runaways

As usual, I have found a way to include a post that isn’t necessarily “news” but is news to me just because someone queer that I like posted something queer that I like:

Happy new Queers

Passage: The Series

Mandahla Rose shared her personal story with Bite the Bullet. She has always advocated for mental health and I have loads of respect for her and how open she has been about her life. It’s definitely saving lives!

Pose

Have I mentioned how much I love when my fandom worlds conveniently collide? This week, Indya Moore joined the cast of Steven Universe Future as a nonbinary character and it just makes me SO HAPPY!

Twenties

Lena Waithe’s newest project has a premiere date! Mark your calendars for March 4th!

Wynonna Earp

Wynonna Earp has finally started filming again which means we are all waiting with baited breath for new details. Emily Andras spoke with TVInsider and dropped some hints about the WayHaught wedding.

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.
