Had a bit of a problem with knowing if I had the right Spanish-Language TV links, so I left those out. Sorry. Tried to find all the rest, though.

And of course the title of the post should read 2020 and not 202. Grrr.

Speaking of LGBTQ media, whatever happened to Trick 2?

There was a lot of hype back in 2018 about a kickstarter to do the sequel to the 1999 film Trick. But I haven’t heard anything about it lately, and quick Google searches don’t provide updates more recent than that. Anyone know if it’s defunct?

The GLAAD award for games has been long known to skip over games that fully tackle LGBT issues in interesting and positive ways in favour of the highest-profile game that can be shoehorned in. I'm a little suspicious of the other categories for that reason. Did She-Ra win in previous years? All my queer friends were nuts for it.

She-Ra was nominated but didn't win, alas.

That interview between Rachel Maddow and Pete Buttigieg was truly extraordinary. It was the kind of deep, nuanced conversation about identity and coming out that could only happen between two queer people, and it was amazing to watch it happen on national TV.

Rafiki was so so good.
