Love doesn’t come easy, especially for queer characters of color. Either we have stories that consists of “coming-of-age” or “coming-out” — both of which are completely fine and beautiful — but there never is a unapologetically queer movie about finding love through the chaos of one hot summer. That is where Andrew Ahn’s Fire Island comes in.Continue reading “‘Fire Island’ is a Queer Rom-Com Take on ‘Pride & Prejudice’”

The strength of a hero is not just defined by their powers. Who they are, outside of those uncomfortable looking tights, is just as important. A hero with a strong sense of character has the ability to do what’s right, and turn their long and difficult journey into a message of hope for everyone who sees them. With that being the case, Nicole Maines is just as much a superhero offscreen as she is on.Continue reading “A Talk With Real Life Hero Nicole Maines, aka Dreamer on ‘Supergirl’”
