Monday Logic with UC:
I only have one word. POSE @poseonfx
The new show by @fxnetworks
(from the writers/creators of Glee, Scream Queens, American Horror Show, Eat Pray Love, Nip/Tuck, etc.) premiered this June and it is literally EVERYTHING. Pure, fabulous, excellent magic. POSE is centered about the young LGBTQ community of color and the drag ball culture in 1980s New York. YAAAAASSS, honey!!! What makes POSE like no other show I have ever seen, is the fact that it so beautifully illustrates the profound marginalization, the undeniable sparkle, the fierceness, the beauty, the humanity, and the struggle for a voice and recognition among a whole generation of young LGBTQ people of color.
When I was in grad school, I had the privilege of spending almost two years inside the world of homeless LGBTQ youth in Chicago. This show took me back to that time in my life, which informed so much of what I do today. The resilience and raw beauty in this community is so beyond fly and fresh, and POSE embodies all of it.
Bottom Line: POSE will lift you up, school you, love you, and inspire you. Watch it...immediately, if not sooner.
