It’s almost the weekend, so let’s get to celebrating.
1. Killing Eve‘s EW photo shoot slays. The BBC America show, starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer became a smash hit during its first season, and fans can’t get enough of the cat and mouse, will they or won’t they relationship between the two leads. This EW feature captures the show’s essence and our hearts. (Feature photo from EW)
2. Amber Benson is coming to ClexaCon! This year’s ClexaCon is about to get extra flamey with the addition of Amber Benson, who played the beloved Tara Maclay on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
3. The L Word‘s new showrunner shares her thoughts on the upcoming sequel. Ilene Chaiken has handed over the reins of The L Word to Marja-Lewis Ryan, who many fans will recognize from her film, The Four-Faced Liar. In this Hollywood Reporter interview, Ryan seems committed to bringing a more diverse and expansive world to The L Word, while also confirming that previous stars Jennifer Beals, Leisha Hailey, and Kate Moennig will have substantial parts in the series.
4. It’s not all doom and gloom for lesbian bars in the US. Although it has seemed at times like the lesbian bar was going the way of the Dodo, there has been some good news as of late. Writer Marcie Bianco (who also happens to be a friend) wrote a great piece for OUT about a few lesbian and queer women’s bars that are bucking the trend and thriving.
They made clear that they love the show, love how it serves underrepresented audiences, love its heart & humor, but…we need more viewers. They’ll decide soon.
I wish I felt more confident

5. Wynonna Earp and One Day at a Time need your help. So this isn’t exactly good news, but it is important. If you’ve been on social media in the past few days, you may have seen that One Day at a Time‘s showrunner, Gloria Calderón Kellett pleaded with fans to help keep ODAAT afloat. Later that day, word came that Wynonna Earp wasn’t filming as they were supposed to be, and cast and crew expressed concern to fans. A few hours later, Wynonna Earp was the #2 trending topic on Twitter. It’s important that Netflix, Syfy and IDW know how vital these shows are to the LGBTQ community, so if you can, share your thoughts with them and join the fight to save two beloved shows.
