If you’ve ever been in a really good, healthy romantic relationship, then you know that there is no way to describe your love that doesn’t sound hyperbolic or corny AF.
“She’s the very best.”
“Ze changed my life forever.”
“They’re my person.”
“He makes my heart sing.”
Despite the fact that these comments are indicators of genuine affection, all of the above make me want to barf and I’m guessing they might make you sick, too.
Self-proclaimed “accomplished warlock,” expert exorcist, and generally sarcastic Brit has had a rocky path to coming out—not necessarily within his demon-filled world, but in our world, the world of publishing and TV production and way too many straight people saying, “Maybe later.”
I was 10 years old the first time I saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show. My parents had put the film on and with no context or discussion of sex and sexuality, the campy tale unfolded before my eyes.
I’m sure my parents also watched the film, but I can’t remember anything other than my mom telling me it was one of her favorite movies. After that, there was no mom, no dad, no me. There was only Janet, Brad, Dr. Frank-N-Furter, and a whole lot of my burgeoning sexuality.
The newest addition to the crew of the Waverider, Charlie, is a rowdy shape-shifter stuck in the form of Amaya Jiwe, a superhero displaced from her time.
If that sounds ridiculous, then clearly you haven’t been watching Legends of Tomorrow. It’s a wild ride of a TV show that revolves around a time-traveling team of misfits, led by their bisexual ship captain, Sara Lance.
The Steven Universe special explores what it feels like to be queer when your family doesn't accept you
“The Crystal Gems understand that I’m Steven and they support me and Connie,” Steven Universe tells his family member, Blue Diamond, who keeps calling him Pink. Blue is disgusted at Steven and Connie for fusing into Stevonie, but Steven feels no remorse. He believes in himself and in fusion, as do the Crystal Gems.
Here at FANGRRLS, we’re all about celebrating our thirst. Whether we thirst due to fashion, werewolves, or TV shows like Shadowhunters, we do so with a certain je ne sais quoi that’s about loving, understanding, and deeply, deeply desiring the objects of our thirst. What we’re saying is that we’re thirst-inclusive.
“What kind of messed up place would turn away refugees?” asks the wide-eyed Jason Mendoza, typically known more for his fun-loving ways than for his attention to matters philosophical, proving yet again that we can’t underestimate him.
In The Good Place, Jason and his friends, Eleanor, Chidi, and Tahani, are four humans on the run from condemnation.
In the Season 1 finale of The Magicians, it is revealed that the brilliant, determined, powerful hedge witch Julia Wicker (Stella Maeve) has survived a brutal rape—what defines the character, however, is not the rape itself, but her often-difficult path as a survivor that proceeds from that trauma.
Imagine a world where your favorite childhood stories come to life: Narnia (or Hogwarts or Fantasia—any of them) in full color, moving and breathing and spinning around you. Now imagine that land to be much less adorable and much more deadly than you’d been led to believe. It’s still beautiful, but something dark lies beneath. That is the world of The Magicians, a trilogy of novels written by Lev Grossman and adapted for TV by SYFY.
If your goal is to create a story for young adults that will hold their attention, it’s not a bad idea to make sure there’s a lot of partial nudity built right into the premise — and Shadowhunters doesn’t disappoint.
The Freeform series isn't exactly must-see TV, but it is a show filled with sweaty training sessions, super-powered transformations, and magical spells that all conveniently require gorgeous people to show off their mega-hot bods.
How do you fight the rise of a dominant, homophobic, religious cult while doing battle against a haggard, evil queen? By transforming into magical, super-powered drag queens here to slay, of course. Or, at least, that’s the solution the Super Drags, three drag queens with mystical superpowers, come up with in Netflix’s new animated Brazilian series, Super Drags.
There’s nothing quite like the return of shows you maybe forgot about due to their midseason premieres. It’s one of the saving graces of winter. Yeah, you get short days and cold weather, but you also get new TV. And, this year, what’s really exciting is the appearance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer women on some of the best shows of the year!
There may be nothing we here at love more than a girl gang, seeing how as we fancy ourselves one such community. Girl gangs, which can and do include nonbinary folks, are all about kicking ass and looking out for each other, thwarting the patriarchy just by daring to love one another as we are here and now.
Back in September, Brie Larson set out to break the internet with news of the Captain Marvel film. While some of us foolishly thought that meant the trailer would be appearing (I’m looking at myself, in particular), the first images of Captain Marvel didn’t disappoint.
A change is coming for the MCU’s Avengers and with that change comes opportunity. No, I’m not talking about Thanos whisking half of the universe into non-existence. I’m talking about the end of Phase 3, which coincides with some actors’ contracts ending.
