Happy Friday! What has this week brought us?
1. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power debuts in all it’s inclusive glory. If you are a child of the 80s who grew up loving She-Ra, you’ll want to check this out. You’ll also want to check it out if you’re not. Why? Because this new She-Ra reboot is created by out lesbian writer and cartoonist Noelle Stevenson. It includes characters of all backgrounds and sizes and even has a lesbian couple (Netossa and Spinnerella). The love/hate relationship between Catra and Adora is still there and is open to fan interpretation. The series explores a lot of heavy subjects, too, which makes it universally interesting and something that can be appreciated by all. Also, Scorpia’s got a great lesbian-haircut.
2. Thank You Come Again is now on Youtube and it’s a NSFW hoot. Friend of the blog, Chelsea Steiner‘s sex and LGBTQ positive webseries, Thank You Come Again, is finally available on Youtube. The series, which follows a quirky group of employees at the Pleasure Chest in LA, took home the Best Web Series Award at ClexaCon and has been traveling the festival circuit this year.

3. Tello Films is having a contest to create a queer holiday film. If you love those Hallmark and Lifetime holiday movies but hate the fact that LGBTQ characters don’t seem to exist in these stories, then check this out. Tello Films is having a pitch to production competition to find and produce a queer holiday film. You can start submitting your ideas next week.
4. Sally4Ever is now available on HBO in the US. This British comedy is about a woman named Sally who stuck in an unsatisfying (and really awkward) relationship with her boyfriend and embarks on an intense relationship with a lesbian she met on the tube. The show is cringeworthy in the best possible way and will have you rooting for Sally to find her bliss. Sally4Ever is available now with new episodes on Sundays at 10:30PM.
5. The Out 100 list is the most exciting and diverse one yet. Each year Out Magazine releases their Out 100 list and in the past, it has criticized for tending to skew white, cis and male. Out listened. This year, however, the magazine has unveiled it’s most inclusive list yet, which features out figures like Emma Gonzalez, Wanda Sykes, Hayley Kiyoko, Daniele Vega, Natalie Morales and many more.
