Let’s talk TV

Today’s Topic du Jour is queer TV. Now, as you have probably noticed, there are not a ton of queer characters on TV and when they do make it to the small screen, they’re frequently very minor characters or characters who die or are otherwise eliminated very quickly. I’m kind of happy and sad to tell you that this is actually an improvement. Happy because things are actually getting better. Sad because it has taken a long time to make even a little progress. But the Notorious RBG said “Time is on the side of change,” and I choose to believe her.

So, while the world is busy changing, here are a few shows that should satisfy your next need for a massive TV binge. All of them feature at least one queer character and most have those characters involved in some pretty important story lines. Token gay characters these are definitely not.

Check out the previews below.

For my younger crew, some animated series that are a lot of fun.

The Legend of Korra

Gravity Falls

Steven Universe

For my tweens, superheroes seem to be the thing now.

Supergirl

The Flash

I am Jazz

And for my teens and young adults, drama is the word of the day.

The Fosters

Pretty Little Liars

The Real O’Neals

As always, let me know what you think in the comments.

Happy Viewing!
