Do you feel that in the air? Is that…hope? This week had its up and downs, so to usher you into the weekend, here are five good and gay things that happened.
2. She-Ra is coming back and with a gay showrunner. For the honor of Gayskull! Out artist and writer Noelle Stevenson (of Lumberjanes and Nimona fame) is heading up a new reboot of the classic 80’s cartoon for Netflix. Enjoy a bit of nostalgia with the original opening credits. The new She-Ra will arrive to save us all sometime in 2018. Expect a lot of powerful ladies and sharp, witty dialogue.
3. Ocean’s 8 gets a poster and it’s red hot. This highly anticipated film, filled with some of our favorite ladies, finally got a poster. There’s Carol herself, Cate Blanchett, plus real life bisexual lady Sarah Paulson, and a killer cast. Crossing fingers for a queer lady character too.
5. Marvel Rising will bring lesbian superhero America Chavez to the small screen. America Chavez, aka Miss America, will be a major character in the upcoming animated series, Marvel Rising. She’ll be voiced by actress Cierra Ramirez (The Fosters) and join other beloved characters like Squirrel Girl, Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel and more.
Bonus! File this under fun and funky. Tech company Beam Authentic has created a wearable smart button that can display whatever image you like, from support of LGBTQ rights to a photo of your favorite fictional lesbians. It works via Bluetooth and connects to an app that non-profits and businesses alike can utilize. It also comes with a built in panic button that relays your GPS location and sends a message if you are ever in danger. A portion of each purchase is donated to charities providing clean water, education, and human rights. The buttons come in black or white and might make a cool last minute gift for a tech savvy and fashion forward friend or loved one.
