Joe and I have been trying for a while now to settle on a good show to watch. I watch a lot of TV, I can deal with a higher level of violence, and a lower level of quality than they can, so I end up watching a bunch more than them. But I really enjoy watching and discussing shows with Joe, and it’s always great when we can find a show we both enjoy that has some queer content in it.
But it’s SOOO Hard to find any show that’s good quality that has a queer storyline without a bunch of violence or trauma about being queer. So many of the stories out there have a ‘it sucks to be queer narrative’ and y’know, there’s a level of reality to that. But… gosh it’d be so nice to have some escapist entertainment that has some excellent queer representation that doesn’t focus on being bullied, misgendered, or beaten.
So, yeh, TV makers – make me a show that’s all about the awesomeness of being queer and trans and I’ll watch the shit out of it.
OH AND DUNEDINERS! I’ll be in your city this week! Come and here me talk 30th July, 5.30pm in the Evison Lounge (1st floor), OUSA Recreation Centre.
