Jess from LGBTFDB (@jerseyfjord) is joined by host Kristen of the ABC podcast series (@ABCs_of_TheLoo) as well as former LGBTFDB volunteer Chandler (@Chandyy08) to chat about the state of representation and the major highs and lows of queer TV this past year, including results of our informal volunteer survey on the shows and storylines that meant the most to all of you, including Supergirl, Orphan Black, Wynonna Earp, Sense8 and One Day At A Time.
*In the weeks since this podcast was recorded, the series Doctor Who buried (and then subsequently unburied) their queer female lead. This “presumed dead” trend for queer female characters will be the subject of an upcoming roundtable from the LGBTFDB team.
All data was compiled by the LGBTFDB research staff, using streaming services, personal knowledge, articles, online fansites, and other various tools to collect and record data. Staff members compiled this data in good faith, and we attest to its accuracy to the best of our ability. Because of the sheer number of television shows and characters, data collected and compiled might be subject to slight variations due to human error. Any such variations would be minimal, and would not materially affect the results and findings of the data in any significant way.
