I have had some adventures so I'm probably gay or achillean in some for or another but kinda grey-ace which has always been a weird interaction within me. Didn't post on here much but glad it's here.

What LGBTQ+ media do ya'll consume?

Webtoons/Tapas care my go-to for choice comics, for news maybe Advocate or Pride if there are better ones let me know. Like, queer media does wonders for keeping oneself sane in this world imho. I just follow artists on Twitter as well to support my well-being.

I even remember one cool game by Nicky Case called the The Coming Out Simulator (Trigger Warning: Includes depictions of [highlighted homophobia, physical abuse/domestic violence]) which hit home really hard. It hit home hard but I'm kind of glad it exists, very heavy themes and emotions.

There was one I read 6-ish years ago that I can't remember the name of. I'll have to do a quick search to find the name.


So it was Rain.

Interesting question...

Well, I actually don't think I've been following a whole lot of media about this? I hate to admit it, but I don't actually cross a lot of LGBT media I trust where news outlets are concerned, (not that they're as bad as say, Fox, but I don't find the topics all that useful to report or as believable as most national news outlets?) and the other entertainment content has mostly been subpar quality where I've come across.

I will say that I think Sense8 is a fabulous show, and absolutely recommend that everyone watch that series if they have access to it. One of the main leads is a Transwoman played by an actual Transwoman, and they touch on so many interesting topics both related to actual LGBT issues, while also having an interesting unrelated other plot going on. I also think How to Get Away with Murder is another great show. There were a few scary points here and there (and the ending leaves a minor... bad taste in my mouth about some troubling implications), but the show all in all addressed itself well and also at least casted LGBT actors in LGBT roles, and actually confronted important issues as well.

Other great shows/movies would interest me if I cross them. I will say that I generally dislike a how a lot of shows try to grapple with LGBT topics/roles, when they try to do this in the absolute worst way possible so many times; many productions either do not cast LGBT actors into LGBT roles, or even worse, they use the worst possible tropes, by accident or on purpose, who's to say :roll: (Not that Bi; Bury Your Gays, etc). Shows like Lucifer and Scandal/The 100, respectively, come to mind here.

From a literary point of view, I get it. It can be really hard to do this sort of thing correctly, and still end up with an interesting piece of media. But holy god, is it ever easy to do this sort of thing wrong, and it's something I notice and bothers the hell out of me. I would rather a story that doesn't bring up LGBT topics at all (yet doesn't shun them), than a story that gets ruined by a "bi" character who only has straight relationships and love interests that are explored, or queer characters who just lose absolutely everything while the straight people have great lives. There also are plenty of talented queer actors- seeing straight actors constantly cast as us and then miss a major mark later seems to be more of a pattern rather than a coincidence these days.

TL/DR, I appreciate great high quality media where LGBT characters are allowed to succeed and have happy endings, rather than their identities being used as mere tragic plot devices and excuses to look "inclusive". Shows that nail the first part fly great with me, and shows that attempt to do this, but fall into the second category very quickly irritate me.

By the way, guys, I've perhaps gotten a little lazy while curating this thread, and I'm not really looking all that hard for any previous pings or directives at me for the past while :P

Is there anything I've missed you guys might want me to update in the OP at all? Mind bumping or bringing up something you might feel is outdated/needs adding?

I'm at least pleasantly surprised this thread continues to be a space a lot of us enjoy coming back to. :)
