21 Escapist Shows to Binge on Netflix for LGBTQ+ Viewers
In Hollywood, Ryan Murphy creates an aspirational version of a bygone Tinseltown that flips the script on the straight white male studio stronghold that was considered its Golden Age and instead delivers a queer, intersectional world with women in power.The seven-episode limited series, for which Janet Mock is a writer, producer, and director, stars Broadway actor Jeremy Pope as an aspiring writer with a fresh story to tell, Darren Criss as an up-and-coming director, David Corenswet (The Politician) as the new hunk in town, Laura Harrier as a rising star of an actress, and Patti LuPone as a studio bigwig who’s about to change the landscape.
At the center of the story that pays homage to Rock Hudson (Jake Picking), Anna May Wong (Michelle Krusiec), and Hattie McDaniel (Queen Latifah) is the gas station run by Dylan McDermott’s Ernie, where queer people and outsiders come to fill their tanks (as it were).
