The Complex Queerness of Nola Darling in Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It

It has been refreshing seeing the show tackle issue like street harassment, gentrification and explore alternative sexual/romantic relationships. Insecure tackled it this season with Molly and her childhood friend turned bae, Dro. Yet, when I watched the trailer for the series the aspect of Nola's character I was most interested in was the part where she calls herself a "polyamorous pansexual." How would this series tackle Nola as a queer black woman? Well, let's discuss.

Petition for Warner Bros. to Acknowledge Wonder Woman’s Bisexuality Nails Why It’s So Important

The idea of Wonder Woman not being heterosexual is not new, especially in recent years, with writer Greg Rucka confirming 100% that the Amazons of Themyscira have same sex relationships in the comics, but it's also not something Warner Bros. allowed her theatrical debut to really get into.

Did Heather Matarazzo’s Below Her Mouth Twitter Thread Discount the Experiences of Bisexual Women?

Below Her Mouth is a Canadian film making its U.S. debut this weekend. It's a story about queer women told by a queer, female director that boasts an all-female crew and creative team. Sounds pretty cool, right? Well, having all these elements in place doesn't necessarily guarantee quality representation, or even representation that's creative. For actress Heather Matarazzo, the film's entire premise is severely lacking, as are the imaginations of many queer filmmakers.
