It is a hard time to be a gay person who both supports the current Writer’s Guild strike, but also wants to watch something new this summer instead of more Drag Race reruns. Thankfully, these new lesbo-centric must-sees were made long before the strike!

Jagged Mind is a psychological thriller, starring queer actors Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Shannon Woodward, is about a woman stuck in a string of time loops. And her girlfriend may be to blame. It premiers at the American Black Film Festival in Miami June 14, and on Hulu June 15.

The sexiest “remake” of 2023 goes to Amazon Prime’s Dead Ringers, which follows the experiments performed by two ethically challenged but highly attractive lesbian gynecologists, both played with gusto by Rachel Weisz. It’s not really a remake; it’s an entirely new vision, an excellent series that takes it’s queues from the source book Twins. The final episode could be one of the best hours on TV you’ll get this year.

She’s the lesbian comedian we came to love through SNL (Kate McKinnon) are now dying to see on the big screen and she’s in the highly anticipated, sarcasm-laden Barbie Movie. In it, Margot Robbie’s Barbie promptly ruins a perfectly choreographed dance party by asking the others dancing Barbies: “Do you guys ever think about dying?” Barbie is alarmed by strange recent occurrences in Barbie Land (her once arched feet are now flat; she fell off her roof instead of floating). She is therefore prompted to pierce the veil of perfection by another Sharpie Barbie (McKinnon) who gives Margot’s Barbie the choice between a stiletto, representing the Barbie world, and a Birkenstock, representing the real world. It’s a metaphor for queerness, clearly. At first, Margot’s Barbie is like, f*ck the Birkenstock I’ll take the heel, but Kate’s Barbie challenges her to try again. And so Barbie (and tag-along Ken, looking gayer than possible) embark on a journey to the real world while listening to ‘Closer To Fine’ by The Indigo Girls. There’s a lot of fun castmates (Will Ferrell, America Ferrera) and LGBTQ+ actors as well (trans actor Hari Nef as Doctor Barbie, queer actor Alexandra Shipp), some super gay subtext for Ken, too, and the whole thing directed by uber-ally, Greta Gerwig. It hits theaters July 21 and so do we.
