Perfect for marathoning: ‘Pose’ (HBO)

MJ Rodriguez makes history thanks to ‘Pose’.

What is it about

New York, 80s. The LGTB + community lives their lives in the shadows while the world ignores that an unknown virus that only seems to affect homosexuals is about to put the planet in check. While society ignores them for being different, the LGBT + community, made up mainly of African Americans and Latinos, meets regularly to celebrate dances, compete for trophies and support each other. The so-called Houses are for many of them their only hope of having a family after their own have kicked them for being different.

Why you should see it

The nine Emmy nominations that has received the final season of Pose (including best series, direction, script and leading actors in the drama categories) is a perfect opportunity to claim one of the most vindicable series in the hyperactive career Ryan Murphy. After making the LGTB + community visible for years, the scriptwriter and producer decided to pay tribute to the group’s most historically ignored lyrics, on and off television. For the first time in the history of television, a series with a mostly trans cast premiered.

The groundbreaking drama echoed some of its creator’s usual tics (uneven tone, underlined ambitions, inconsistent emotional journey of its characters), but it functioned as an exciting, empathetic, and often spectacular. love letter to an underrepresented community in popular culture. Throughout its irregular, but powerful three seasons, the affection for its characters and the desperate cry in search of dignity and love tipped the balance in favor of a fiction that in Spain we have seen through HBO.

The brand new Emmy nomination for M.J. Rodriguez (Blanca Evangelista, the heart of the series) is the first for a trans interpreter in the history of the awards. After a third season more schizophrenic than usual, Pose closed its story last June with a great final episode.
