Happy Friyay everyone! Here’s some good and gay news to make the day go by quickly.
1. The Colette trailer doesn’t shy away from the title character’s sexuality. Keira Knightly (who we were all robbed of playing gay in Bend it Like Beckham) stars in this upcoming period piece that delves into the life of novelist Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette aka Colette, including her bisexuality and multiple affairs with women. The film hits theatres this fall.
2. We get a peek at the first images of Noelle Stevenson’s She-Ra. The out cartoonist and producer is behind the Netflix reboot of She-Ra and this week we got to see a glimpse of the Princess of Power herself. While She-Ra herself may not be queer (although who knows what sort of representation we may get out of the reboot) she is a cult favorite character among the LGBTQ community for her strength, character, and camp.
3. Evan Rachel Wood in Frozen 2? Out bisexual actress and singer Wood is supposedly in talks to join the cast of Frozen 2. Crossing fingers that whoever she plays will have something special to do with Elsa.
4. The Bold Type explores polyamory, keeps pushing the TV envelope. The Freeform series continues to boldly push the TV boundaries, exploring a storyline involving Kat exploring her sexuality with other women, with girlfriend Adena’s blessing. In this week’s episode, Adena suggests that Kat entertain having relations with other women as long as it’s safe and emotionally healthy. Kat finds herself in bed with a submissive woman who encourages Kat to bring out her more dominant side. The Bold Type is really doing things that no other show is.

5. Sneak peek at Ellen Page in The Umbrella Academy: Out lesbian actress Page will be joining the sci-fi Netflix series as The White Violin/Vanya, the only member of the academy without any supernatural powers…or does she? We’ll have to wait until 2019 to find out.
