While real life in the US may be a complete shit show, 2017 TV is bringing a strange, unfamiliar feeling: optimism. I find myself relaxing, letting go of perpetual worry and enjoying shows.
After listening to Ali Liebert interviewed on Dana Piccoli’s new podcast, I am convinced Ali Liebert is the future of positive change for LGBT characters on TV.
We have to stop putting up with crumbs. We deserve to have queer characters who are happy, 3-dimensional and have romantic and sexual relationships equal to their straight counterparts.
A sweet, sweet day for Alex and Maggie.
In 25 years, very little has changed. Being queer is still played for ratings.
Another month brings us more characters and shows, and finally we hit 500 shows!
We add our 500th show, and it’s one of the seminal subversive lesbian classics. A show that almost made it on UPN.
“… we don’t know what’s coming down the road … reach beyond [your] own bubbles and borders and hold [yourselves] together … Be fearless and get ready for a long, ugly fight.”
Coming out one day at a time.
The best Canadians kid show you may not be watching.
We’d say ‘Happy 2016’ but frankly not a one of us really feels that way.
Seasons Greetings and a Happy Queer Year.
