OMG THIS IS THE MOST ADORABLE EPISODE EVER.
This show can be heavy-handed sometimes and it can be clunky, but I just do not care.
I am here for Hernando beautifully slaying a homophobe in his art class before his boyfriend comes down to see him. I am here for their friend who loves them dearly giving them a safe space to live as their home becomes hostile.
I am here for a transwoman and her girlfriend arguing furiously for other people to love seeing their gay friends make love to each other. I am here for solidarity. I am here for queer folks loving one another. I will fight everyone right now I swear.
I am here for a show where a recently married woman asserts to her husband that she has a right to control of her own body, and no one, not even her mother, has a right to tell her who she should spread for.
I am here for a show that dismisses all sense of shame and fear about consensual, loving sex and asserts that it is beautiful and good before giving us world tour of an orgy.
I am here for a show that shows people being thankful for the love others have provided for them and coming to help them when the vehicle of their success literally explodes, followed by a determination to do more good for the community afterwards (even if it'll be a conflicted plotline in the rest of the season).
I am here for people calling home to their parents, that we know they love dearly, when everything has gone to shit and you can feel the pain of loss between them.
I am here for a mom delivering the monologue to end all monologues as she disavows anyone who turned on her and her son when he showed the highest of bravery to stand for the man and woman in his life that he loves.
I am here boyfriends helping their lovers during a trying time of year as they complete a ritual to honor their deceased parents.
I am here for a gay man who's scared in his coming out experience turning to an out transwoman for help.
I am here for every other member of their cluster rallying to the point when they sense that one of them is experiencing trauma.
I am here for love being infinite. I am here for people learning more about themselves and each other and that adding to the love they have for the people in their lives previously.
I love this show. I love all of you. I am ready to fight people.
