LGBTQ Community Is Streaming In 2022

By Charlotte Robinson, January 02, 2022

With the COVID variances continuing to wreak havoc on the entertainment industry we find ourselves in 2022 once again staying home & trying to find something watch on TV. Now that the holiday season has passed & the barrage of XMAS themed movies & productions have ended whether vaccinated or not attending an indoor venue for a meal, concert or movie is a challenging choice. So let’s explore what viewing alternatives our LGBTQ community has these days. First of all many mainstream broadcast networks have added a character to their programs that is lesbian, gay, bi, transgender, queer or non-binary to fulfill their diversity clauses. It’s no surprise that some are more successful than others. Longtime advocates of LGBTQ issues are producers Michael Patrick King & Darren Star delivering a new spin to their HBO "Sex and the City" franchise with “And Just Like That…” by adding more diversity. The new series moves beyond the all-white cast by adding two Black women Nicole Ari Parker & Karen Pittman who play Lisa Todd Wexley & Dr. Nya Wallace as well as Indian actor Sarita Choudhury who plays Seema Patel. Additionally the series added its first nonbinary character in Che Diaz played by nonbinary actor Sara Ramirez who develops a relationship with Cynthia Nixon. Where it goes we’ll just have to tune in & watch. Kristin Davis’ character Charlotte is also faced with a timely issue when her daughter changing her name from Rose to Rock insisting to be referred to as them. So though we seem to be once again in a semi-lock down this winter at least the entertainment industry is beginning to offer programming that reflects our changing world.
