When I was still in college, my friends and I somehow ended up at a lesbian mixer that we clearly didn't belong at, celebrating the brand new, yet unreleased, The L Word. It was so exciting! So exciting that these women in their forties didn't even seem to mind that we, borderline teenagers in silly outfits, had crashed their event. We were all in it together.
That show was so bad. So, so bad. But I still watched it more than once. Didn't we all? It was a reference point for lesbian community.
Now it is coming back as a reboot. Will it be terrible? Probably! Will I be annoyed that I wasted my time on it? At some point, I'm sure I will. But right now I'm excited. So excited that I could almost leave my home and celebrate with other queer women, regardless of our differences.
Almost. My baby is taking a nap so I am not actually going anywhere until he wakes up.
