“a 90s mariah carey”
” a latina mimi faust from lhhatl”
this is what i was thinking when i started watching “pose” on fx.
those are who the vixens reminded me of.
soooooo from the foxhole,
to my home vixen i call “pose”,
and even joe budden of all straight wolves:
…has been talking/telling me about the show.
i was pretty much finished with all my other programs,
so i said why not?
i will admit that i was hesitant because of the previews.
i’m started watching but…
…i realllllllllllllly like this show.
i’m only on episode 4,
but i’m into it.
the show is deeper than what i saw in the previews.
it has heart and deals with a lot of gay issues head on,
even if most of us are not in the ball/house scene.
that is what i thought the show would be about,
but clearly i was wrong and can admit that.
the show is brought to you by ryan murphy,
who pretty much runs all the good programming on fx.
it centers around the new yawk house and ballroom scene in the late 80s,
but it also has topics about:
how serious the aids epidemic was in the 80s
abandonment by parents for being gay
the ins and outs of being the side piece to a bisexual male
one thing that stands out to me tho is “family”.
for many of us in this life,
we tend to walk alone unlike our straight counterparts.
it can be a very lonely life that only brings companionship during sex.
sex and the occasional partying.
this is a life that doesn’t guarantee a family that accepts us.
if you have that,
you’re extremely lucky.
i love the concept of being taken in by a “motha“.
and even electra,
provide that for those underneath them.
blanca is my favorite character.
she exudes such positive energy and i love seeing her on screen.
you can see the pain and emotion all over her face in her scenes.
aside from angel,
she’s one of the characters that stands out to me the most.
i’m really digging “pose” foxhole.
i know it might not be for some,
but i’ve learned that everyone in these forests has a story to tell.
the trans vixens
the curious and confused
good tv has a way of telling those stories to us.
it shows the true depth of your character when can accept that,
step out of your world,
and embrace something completely different than what you’re use to.
it may turn you off further or you may end up really liking it.
the best part is you’ll learn something new.
“pose” has been renewed for a season 2,
but you can catch up: here
lowkey: it’s interesting the amount of straight wolves watching this show.
secretly or not.
