Gonna expand the thread and talk about shows I'm enjoying with LGBT characters, movies, and books.
In terms of current television I'm now watching:
The Fosters: Freeform, Mondays at 8 EST. It's a show about an interracial couple of lesbians raising their multi-ethnic, mixed brood of children. Lot of cultural diversity and the actresses with the best chemistry I have ever watched on television. Super dramatic and sometimes frustrating, but I'm here for Stef and Lena every week. Also, PROTECT JUDE AT ALL COSTS. Also, if I can be half the partner Lena is someday I think I will be okay.
Rosewood: Fox, Wednesdays at 7 EST. Crime procedural set in Miami. Morris Chestnut is incredibly charming, and the relationship between his sister and her fiance is another one of my favorite lesbian couples on TV. Show is just beautiful and fun.
The 100: The CW, Thursdays at 9 EST. Science fiction show. We have a thread about it. Lot of nuanced storytelling in this show set in a post-apocaplyptic future. Currently the source of a lot of conversation about the Kill Your Gays trope. Sticking with the show, but I'm bitter.
Brooklyn-99: Fox, Tuesdays at 8:30 EST. Workplace sitcom set in a police precinct. Captain is a gay black man who graces my avatar. Jake, the primary character, is not my favorite, but I love everyone else on this show. Andre Braugher as Captain Raymond Holt is my idol.
The Real O'Neals: ABC, Tuesdays at 8:30 EST. Just started watching this. Show about an Irish-Catholic family in Chicago. Son comes out and parents are getting a divorce. So funny.
How To Get Away With Murder: ABC, Thursdays at 10 EST. Drama from Shondaland. Intense show. Lots of mystery. Always off the rails, but Viola Davis is everything I love.
I'll post about books and movies another time.
