LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Lakers’ new Big Three made his preseason debut in a 111-99 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday. And while Russell Westbrook, LeBron James and Anthony Davis’ first time court result was another loss to lower LA’s record to 0-5 on their exhibition schedule, the postgame message echoed by the stars was one that I asked for patience but that exudes positivity.

“It’s going to take us a minute to become the team that we know we are going to be capable of being,” said James, who scored 17 points, with 6 rebounds, 3 steals and 6 turnovers. “We’re going to have times when we’re not quite right there. We can take steps backwards. But that’s all part of … I think it’s not worth having anything if it’s not worth working for.”

Westbrook, who made his way to the Lakers in the offseason by convincing the Washington Wizards to go for a deal, wore his best in purple and gold so far, which isn’t saying much considering it was combined. to shoot 4 of 19 with 16 turnovers in his first two outings. But his speed on the open court when flanked by so much talent will make all the difference this season.

“We had good runs,” Westbrook said after finishing with 10 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 turnovers. “Obviously, it’s the first game. But there are some good things that we can bring out … It can cheer us up a bit.”

For James, who enters the season seeking a fifth ring that would tie his career total with players like Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson and Tim Duncan, moral victories mean little. However, the 19-year veteran vowed to guide his group through its initial stages.

“As a leader, it is my job to not get frustrated,” he said. “If I’m not frustrated, I think it will leak out to everyone else. I have never been a person who is okay with not being great. But I understand that things take time too. As long as I keep the main thing as the main thing, I hold your ground during everything that is happening with our team, then we will be fine. “

Davis was more than fine against Golden State, leading the Lakers with 20 points on 7 of 12 shots to go with 6 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks. He was encouraged by his first look at Los Angeles’ new lineup with him starting at 5, along with James, Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Kent Bazemore.

“We saw wonderful things with me, Bron and Russ in action,” Davis said. “There are infinite possibilities, the things that we can run and we can do … And although there were good things, many things that we can improve.”

Golden State beat Los Angeles 111-99 thanks to Jordan Poole’s 18 points.

The Lakers close the preseason on Thursday on the road against the Sacramento Kings and have a week until the regular season begins, back at home against the Warriors again.

There is a lot of work to be done before the Lakers move closer to a final product, starting with making all of their players healthy. Trevor Ariza (ankle surgery) is expected to miss at least two months; Talen Horton-Tucker (thumb surgery) would be out for about a month; and Kendrick Nunn (right ankle) and Wayne Ellington (left hamstring) did not play Tuesday, along with Malik Monk (groin), who will be out for another week.

“So if these guys don’t play, how do we bring them in?” Davis said. “So we haven’t had our full kit where we can see all the details, but it looks good so far.”

With an 82-game season about to begin for a group that ultimately only cares about getting 16 wins from April to June, time is on the Lakers’ side.

“It could take the entire year to really be at our best, and ideally, that’s when we are at our best: going into the playoffs,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said. “But we have the mentality to come out really strong with things clicking the best we can … But it’s reasonable to think that there will be some tough nights early in the season, but we had the expectation two years ago and we started quite strong. So. , that’s what we are waiting for. “

Although she has been a discreet background in the industry for decades, the 50th anniversary of actress Cybill Shepherd’s film debut celebrates one of the most fascinating trajectories and personalities of any who have passed through the hills of Los Angels Teen queen of beauty pageants in the southeastern United States, at just 16 she was already a model listed in the country’s beauty and fashion magazines. Precisely one of those covers, the one of the magazine Glamour In 1970, he powerfully caught the attention of a young filmmaker named Peter Bogdanovich who was waiting for his turn at a supermarket checkout. His debut in the celebrated The last movie, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe, shocked the Hollywood industry, which saw in her face the longing for generational change in the mecca of cinema. He also had his first romantic relationship with the director despite the fact that he was married and his wife – the great producer Polly Platt – was working on the same film. A love story that, as she herself recounted in her biography, featured such illustrious names as Elvis Presley, Don Johnson, Jeff Bridges or Charles Grodin.

Because the intimate aspect of the life of the protagonist of Moonlight it was even more convulsive, fiery and controversial than her celebrated screen career, being narrated with brutal honesty and stripped of complexes by herself. Drugs, for example, were part of the daily life of her relationship with Elvis, one of her first boyfriends, and they also ended because of them. It was 1972 and, according to Shepherd, the ‘King of Rock’ was an indescribable lover who conquered her by his smell – “all the guys wore cheap cologne, except him” – but with an addiction too severe to be able to establish a relationship . “Once when it was time for us to go to bed, he said, ‘Take these pills,’ and he put them in my hand. He told me that he had already taken his, but I flushed them down the toilet. After that I gave him back an emerald and diamond ring. We were done, ”he declared in an interview in 2009.

Cover of the American edition of Glamor magazine in 1970 with Shepherd on the cover.

The interpreter attributes her proud promiscuity to her southern origin – “sex there is a way of socializing that we do not take very seriously” – and to the confrontation with the example of her mother, whom she calls “a lady who is the only thing what he said about sex is that it was something very unpleasant ”. As Shepherd confessed to The Guardian, “I just wanted to have a good time, be free, and feel fulfilled in a way that women of other generations couldn’t. I was very wild, but it turns out that, in hindsight, I had it all. ” On one occasion, she even described herself as a “sex addict” because of her inability to respect the monogamy of her marriages. With Don Johnson, co-star of the mini-series adaptation of The long hot summer, the attraction was too intense. “We lasted a nanosecond on the porch and went to bed quickly. It was like devouring a chocolate bar when you’re hungry: furious and intense and we were done in just five minutes, ”he said.

“The first time I saw her she was wearing a white dress, she looked like an angel from this dirty mess. She is alone. They can’t touch her. ” It was Travis Bickle himself, in one of the most remembered scenes of Taxi Driver, the one that would best define the impression made by that beauty with blond hair and blue eyes who came out of Memphis before the spectators. Even Scorsese himself allowed himself to make a cameo in his masterpiece and be the lucky one to watch Betsy, Bickle’s obsession, walk in slow motion. Shepherd prevailed in the casting of actresses such as Mia Farrow, Meryl Streep, Farrah Fawcett or Glenn Close, but maintained a tumultuous relationship with his co-star as a result of his refusal to be in a relationship with De Niro.

Shepherd’s irreverent rebellion faded in parallel with his professional career. At the beginning of the last decade he began to boast of his inner transformation, supported by his reunion with the Catholic faith and Jesus Christ, with whom he “spoke again.” The movie star maintains that a near-death experience was what led her to embrace her spiritual side again. “I felt my soul ascended to a star. And then I said, ‘You can’t go there, you have three kids. Come back down here, you have to stay alive “, he evoked in the television program Today. His commitment has reached the point of joining the thriving and lucrative industry of the so-called “Christian cinema” with The power of the cross, a choral production about various characters who redeem themselves thanks to their reconciliation with the Catholic faith. A work questioned by the specialized press because of the reactionary conservatism that most of these works give off, but that she defended without complexes: “The first thing to do is work, that’s first of all. And if you get a good movie like this, with a great character to play, are you going to say ‘no’ because it is a Christian production? Do it, keep working ”.

The mother of three children from two different failed marriages (with businessman David Ford and with chiropractor Bruce Oppenheim), Cybill Shepherd had to deal with several of the biggest egos of the patriarchal film industry. She herself collected all her open fronts in the long and brilliant title of her biography: Cybill’s Disobedience: How I Survived Beauty Pageants, Elvis, Sex, Bruce Willis, Lies, Marriage, Motherhood, Hollywood, And The Irrepressible Need To Speak Up. That irrepressible desire to give her opinion marked her throughout her career, also in her greatest professional success: that of the former model who became a private detective in the series Moonlight. An eighties television phenomenon that made both her and Bruce Willis two of the most popular and desired figures in the world thanks to the unresolved sexual tension between their characters. Theirs lasted, as Sabina would say, as long as the scriptwriters’ patience lasted before unleashing the attraction of the protagonists, later losing the audience’s curiosity. Along the way, she and Willis had a love-hate relationship that made life on the set hell. “The characters weren’t too far removed from us. I played a former model, which was, and he was an asshole, which is, “commented on a comedy show Sheperd in front of Willis.

His career as a television star came to an end in early 1998, during a supposedly professional dinner with Les Moonves, the all-powerful director of the then-broadcast CBS network, Cybill, the successful sitcom with which he took over from Moonlight and that it earned him his third Golden Globe. “We went to the date and he began to tell me how his wife no longer turned him on, and that he didn’t put any of his lovers on him either. I saw him drink alcohol and suddenly he asked me, Why don’t you let me take you home? “No, I already have someone to take me. My car is parked downstairs with a good friend who is an off-duty LAPD. ” Only a few days later, the team of the series began to receive complaints from the top of the chain, restricting the creative freedom they had enjoyed until then. An example: no talking about menstruation in her episodes. A few months later, the fiction that according to its protagonist “could have been broadcast for five more years”, was abruptly canceled. He did not even have time to record an episode that closed the plots and the final credits that they read ‘To Be Continued… (Continuará…)’ They were left in a broken promise due to the refusal of their star to be harassed. 20 years passed until the activist wave of the #MeToo movement managed to do justice to the tycoon, who was forced to resign from the entertainment conglomerate after a dozen women accused him of sexual harassment in the pages of the magazine The New Yorker.

The American showed her activist commitment when few actresses of her fame dared to raise their voices. “I never wanted to be Jane, I always preferred to be Tarzan. I didn’t want to stay vacuuming in the tree house, I liked swinging around the branches better, “he once declared. She has defended legal abortion, the feminist cause – even rejecting the role of the nanny who destroys a family in The devil that rocks the cradle due to its macho connotation– and the rights of homosexuals: both on the screen (with his role in the series The L Word) as well as outside of it, being deserving in 2019 of the Trevor Project award for its support to the LGTB collective. Her sister Gladys, who died at the age of 63 in 2009, was a lesbian and the actress supported her unconditionally, as well as her own daughter, Clementine Ford, also a performer.

His career as a television star came to an end in early 1998, during a supposedly professional dinner with Les Moonves, the all-powerful director of the then-broadcast CBS network, Cybill, the successful sitcom with which he took over from Moonlight and that it earned him his third Golden Globe. “We went to the date and he began to tell me how his wife no longer turned him on, and that he didn’t put any of his lovers on him either. I saw him drink alcohol and suddenly he asked me, Why don’t you let me take you home? “No, I already have someone to take me. My car is parked downstairs with a good friend who is an off-duty LAPD. ” Only a few days later, the team of the series began to receive complaints from the top of the chain, restricting the creative freedom they had enjoyed until then. An example: no talking about menstruation in her episodes. A few months later, the fiction that according to its protagonist “could have been broadcast for five more years”, was abruptly canceled. He did not even have time to record an episode that closed the plots and the final credits that they read ‘To Be Continued… (Continuará…)’ They were left in a broken promise due to the refusal of their star to be harassed. 20 years passed until the activist wave of the #MeToo movement managed to do justice to the tycoon, who was forced to resign from the entertainment conglomerate after a dozen women accused him of sexual harassment in the pages of the magazine The New Yorker.

The American showed her activist commitment when few actresses of her fame dared to raise their voices. “I never wanted to be Jane, I always preferred to be Tarzan. I didn’t want to stay vacuuming in the tree house, I liked swinging around the branches better, “he once declared. She has defended legal abortion, the feminist cause – even rejecting the role of the nanny who destroys a family in The devil that rocks the cradle due to its macho connotation– and the rights of homosexuals: both on the screen (with his role in the series The L Word) as well as outside of it, being deserving in 2019 of the Trevor Project award for its support to the LGTB collective. Her sister Gladys, who died at the age of 63 in 2009, was a lesbian and the actress supported her unconditionally, as well as her own daughter, Clementine Ford, also a performer.

For his part, LaBeouf responded to the allegations as follows: “I am not in a position to tell anyone how my behavior made them feel. I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations. I have been abusive to myself and to everyone around me for years. I have a history of hurting the people closest to me. I am ashamed of that story and sorry for those I hurt. There is nothing else I can really say. “

Fall festival season started on September 1 with Venice and flies full force to a close this week when London and Busan wrap, taking in everything from Toronto, Telluride, San Sebastian and the New York film festival in between.

This fully physical 2021 fall festival drop has left plenty to feast on, from titles that are clearly grooming themselves to enter the awards corridor, to some arthouse treasures which may have escaped immediate attention but won’t stay silent for long.

Will Poulter will play the classic Marvel character Adam Warlock in the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie, and the internet has had its say on the casting choice.

Poulter will join Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Pom Klementieff in the next movie in the franchise, which is titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. It’s currently scheduled for release on May 5, 2023. Before that there will be a Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special on Disney+ in December 2022.

James Gunn, writer and director of the Guardians movies, announced the casting on his social media channels, and instantly his comment sections were full of people reacting to the news.

The verdict on Will Poulter cast as Adam Warlock

Gunn wrote on Twitter, before sharing the same on Instagram: “Welcome to the Guardians family, Will Poulter. He’s an amazing actor and wonderful guy. See you in a couple weeks. #AdamWarlock #GotGVol3.”

Responding to comments, Gunn went on to say that “he [Poulter] really is something incredible.”

Poulter replied to his new director’s announcement, saying: “Thank you, James. It’s a genuine honor to play this role and to work with you. I’m very excited to get to work.”

Thank you, James. It’s a genuine honour to play this role and to work with you. I’m very excited to get to work.

— Will Poulter (@PoulterWill) October 12, 2021

MCU mainstay Clark Gregg was one of the first to excitedly reply, writing “FINALLY!!!! (squeeeeee)” on Twitter. @Jack Howard put two and two together and wrote, “Saw him recently and was like “whoa he got HENCH” and now I know why. Very exciting.”

On Instagram @Mikala wrote “Great actor how exciting!” while many others in the comment section made references to Poulter’s previous work.

Many referred to a famous line from We’re the Millers where Poulter played the socially awkward teenager Kenny Rossmore. Many of the comments riffed on his classic line: “Wait, you guys are getting paid?”

Will Poulter has been cast as Adam Warlock in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.” On the left he’s pictured in October 2021 at the premiere of the HBO Max miniseries “Dopesick.”

Journalist Brandon Davis tweeted his approval, writing: “Will Poulter can play silly & fun and can also play an arrogant dick, and everything in between from what I’ve seen. This is great casting.”

What else has Will Poulter been in?

Known across the internet at one point as “the eyebrows kid,” British actor Poulter has starred in a number of high-profile movies and TV shows.

He’s worked with Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant, Jennifer Aniston in We’re The Millers, Brad Pitt in War Machine, John Boyega in Detroit and Florence Pugh in Midsummer, to name just a few.

He also appeared in The Maze Runner films and had a starring role as an 80s game developer in the Netflix interactive special Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.

Poulter’s next role will be in the HBO miniseries Dopesick alongside Michael Keaton, Rosario Dawson and Peter Sarsgaard.

His character in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Adam Warlock, had his arrival in the MCU teased in a post credits scene of the last movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Within the MCU, Adam Warlock seems to have been created by the golden High Priestess (Elizabeth Debicki), the leader of the sovereign people.

Will Poulter will play the classic Marvel character Adam Warlock in the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie, and the internet has had its say on the casting choice.

Poulter will join Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Pom Klementieff in the next movie in the franchise, which is titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. It’s currently scheduled for release on May 5, 2023. Before that there will be a Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special on Disney+ in December 2022.

James Gunn, writer and director of the Guardians movies, announced the casting on his social media channels, and instantly his comment sections were full of people reacting to the news.

The verdict on Will Poulter cast as Adam Warlock

Gunn wrote on Twitter, before sharing the same on Instagram: “Welcome to the Guardians family, Will Poulter. He’s an amazing actor and wonderful guy. See you in a couple weeks. #AdamWarlock #GotGVol3.”

Responding to comments, Gunn went on to say that “he [Poulter] really is something incredible.”

Poulter replied to his new director’s announcement, saying: “Thank you, James. It’s a genuine honor to play this role and to work with you. I’m very excited to get to work.”

Thank you, James. It’s a genuine honour to play this role and to work with you. I’m very excited to get to work.

MCU mainstay Clark Gregg was one of the first to excitedly reply, writing “FINALLY!!!! (squeeeeee)” on Twitter. @Jack Howard put two and two together and wrote, “Saw him recently and was like “whoa he got HENCH” and now I know why. Very exciting.”

On Instagram @Mikala wrote “Great actor how exciting!” while many others in the comment section made references to Poulter’s previous work.

Many referred to a famous line from We’re the Millers where Poulter played the socially awkward teenager Kenny Rossmore. Many of the comments riffed on his classic line: “Wait, you guys are getting paid?”

Journalist Brandon Davis tweeted his approval, writing: “Will Poulter can play silly & fun and can also play an arrogant dick, and everything in between from what I’ve seen. This is great casting.”

What else has Will Poulter been in?

Known across the internet at one point as “the eyebrows kid,” British actor Poulter has starred in a number of high-profile movies and TV shows.

He’s worked with Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant, Jennifer Aniston in We’re The Millers, Brad Pitt in War Machine, John Boyega in Detroit and Florence Pugh in Midsummer, to name just a few.

He also appeared in The Maze Runner films and had a starring role as an 80s game developer in the Netflix interactive special Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.

Poulter’s next role will be in the HBO miniseries Dopesick alongside Michael Keaton, Rosario Dawson and Peter Sarsgaard.

His character in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Adam Warlock, had his arrival in the MCU teased in a post credits scene of the last movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Within the MCU, Adam Warlock seems to have been created by the golden High Priestess (Elizabeth Debicki), the leader of the sovereign people.

Though Twilight turned out to be highly-successful, the first film was never slated to be a blockbuster hit. In fact, when the movie was first being shopped around to production and distribution companies, it was turned down again and again. In a 2018 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Catherine Hardwicke, who directed the first movie, revealed that many studios rejected the film before Summit Entertainment finally decided to take a chance on it.

Hollywood has had its eyes on Tampa Bay as of late. In 2019, St. Petersburg was the filming location for the third season of MTV’s “Floribama Shore”; then this year, St. Pete and Clearwater were the backdrops for dramedy seriesLife’s Rewards,” which hit Amazon Prime in May. The biggest production as of late was A24’s action-packed film Zola, which created tons of buzz over the summer. Amazon Prime has set its sights here yet again for its latest show, ”Tampa Baes,” a reality TV series that follows a group of lesbian friends. It’s set to premiere sometime this fall.

This show is one of the first of its kind and while some members of the LGBTQ+ community celebrated its arrival, others couldn’t help but notice that the majority of the cast appears to be white or light-skinned and mostly femmes—sparking controversy.

The cast was unveiled on July 19 and Twitter wasn’t too pleased. People were quick to point out that it seemed as if the casting directors had used the “paper bag test” to determine who could be on the show.

This is false to an extent; the women on camera in “Tampa Baes” were a pre-existing friend group, but the fact that this specific friend group was selected instead of a more diverse one still rubbed people the wrong way. Those especially familiar with the demographics of Tampa felt that the cast was overall not representative of the city’s queer community.

“Tampa is a city where there are many Black people, many immigrants, Caribbean people; so when I saw the casting, I didn’t see any dark-skinned people, anyone below the paper bag test,” EuroTrill, a 25-year-old Black artist from Tampa tells Creative Loafing Tampa Bay. “Black people are integral to Tampa—that’s just the bottom line. And as the city grows and becomes more popular it would be sad to see that part of Tampa forgotten or treated as invisible. The beauty of Tampa is the diversity and the cast doesn’t show the diversity which is kind of what bothered me.”

According to the Census Bureau, statistics from 2019 show that 26.4% of Tampa’s population is Hispanic and 23.6% is Black. There isn’t any concrete data on the demographics of Tampa’s queer community but many of those that live there or have lived there agree that BIPOC are a huge part of it.

The “Tampa Baes” cast isn’t entirely white as some have suggested though. Some deep diving through the friends’ Instagram accounts reveal that Nelly Ramirez is Hispanic, Jordan Whitley and Mack McKenzie are biracial, and Shiva Pishdad is Iranian. The rest have scattered backgrounds from France to New Zealand, Greece, and others.

Jade McCartney is a 29-year-old Black lesbian who lives in Orlando but lived in Tampa for five years. She tells CL that the casting choice was disappointing but having watched reality shows in the past, she wasn’t shocked by it either.

“I feel like they easily could’ve found another set of friends, but I also wasn’t surprised because when I was a kid I would watch shows like ‘The Real L Word’ and I saw what their casting looked like, so I knew that [the women in ‘Tampa Baes’] either already knew each other or all dated within the same circle, so it’s going to create drama,” McCartney says.

“The Real L Word” cast was made up of women who were mostly strangers before landing on the reality series, but McCartney was right about the “Tampa Baes” cast being pre-existing friends.

By taking a look at some of the women’s Instagram accounts, it appears that they have been friends since at least 2019. Of the 12 women in the promo photo for “Tampa Baes,” half of them are dating each other, according to their Instagram pages.

There is no doubt that these entanglements will cause the necessary drama for a reality show. And it will most likely make for great television, just as “The Real L Word” did. According to the LA Times, “The Real L Word” averaged “more than a million viewers in its first two seasons” and was Showtime’s “top-performing unscripted show in prime time.”

Still, despite its popularity, “The Real L Word” wasn’t without its own controversies. Similar to “Tampa Baes,” it was criticized for its lack of diversity in both skin tone and gender expression.

The aforementioned EuroTrill, who now lives in Brooklyn, New York, identifies as nonbinary. She says the lack of studs in the show’s cast was another red flag for her.

“Studs are a huge part of Tampa culture,” EuroTrill says. “There are so many studs that live freely in their expression and people are inspired by that—and [to not include them], it’s just not an accurate depiction of Tampa at all.”

In general, queer representation in the media has gotten better throughout the years. According to a 2020 report by Nielsen, LGBTQ+ people make up 4.5% of the population and have a 6.7% share of screen rate. Nielsen defines share of screen rate as the identity group (in this case LGBTQ+) being represented among the top 10 recurring cast members. For reference, this is a much more impressive number than other groups that were assessed, such as people of color (all BIPOC, not just queer), which had a 26.7% share of screen rate compared to a 39.5% share of the population.

Despite the advancement, queer people of color have historically not seen the same representation as their white counterparts. So much so that New York Times’ Jamal Jordan sought to create more imagery of Black queer couples’ romance back in 2018. He photographed these couples in New York City, stating in the article that he couldn’t “think of a single high-profile example of a loving relationship between two queer black people.”

“I’ve been wondering, when is it gonna be time for more Black representation when it comes to mainstream lesbian and LGBT media? I feel like Black women are at the bottom of the hierarchy [when it comes to media]. White lesbians, white gay men, Black gay men—it’s like everybody’s above us because we’re not really on TV being represented or being represented correctly. And if we are, we often have smaller side roles,” EuroTrill says.

Eric Deggans is a TV critic for NPR and the author of “Race-Baiter: How the Media Wields Dangerous Words to Divide a Nation”. He couldn’t provide any commentary on “Tampa Baes “specifically and highly suggests that everyone should give shows a watch first before critiquing them. However, having reviewed the media for over 15 years, Deggans has certainly witnessed this lack of diversity on screen when it comes to the queer community.

“There was a show in the early 2000s called ‘Queer as Folk ‘ on Showtime that was about gay men in Pittsburgh and they were almost all white. That’s something that critics like me used to talk about a lot at that time, that the vision of gayness on television was often male, white, and middle class,” Deggans tells CL.

“But we’ve come a long way since then on television,” he adds. “We’re in a better space now than we were 10 or 15 years ago. In recent years there have been a lot of shows that are not white or middle class because there have been objections raised again and again that TV shows need to feature a wider palate and do a better job of showing different kinds of characters.”

Eric DeggansEric Deggans headshot

Following the pandemic, this lack of diversity in queer shows has seemed to improve, as Deggans said. GLAAD, an LGBTQ+ media advocacy group, released its annual “Where We Are on TV” report back in January of this year. The organization has been tracking LGBTQ+ representation in the media for 25 years, and found that now is the first time that more queer people of color have been more prominent on-screen than their white counterparts. Queer people of color made up 53% of LGBTQ+ regular and recurring characters on broadcast series, 52% on cable shows, and 47% on streaming platform originals, according to GLAAD’s report.

This is great progress for the BIPOC queer community but there is still much more work to be done until there is adequate, accurate representation—and perhaps that should start with those behind the camera and in the writers’ rooms.

“In the end, mostly white people run TV, film, and the media, and so it’s constantly a struggle to get the people who control the industry to be more inclusive in their vision or be more inclusive in how they’re depicting different kinds of people,” Deggans says.

Indeed, all five of the executive producers of “Tampa Baes,” mentioned in the Amazon Studios press release, appear to be white. Melissa Bidwell, who is described as the showrunner in the same release, couldn’t be reached for comment on the show’s controversy. PR for Amazon Studios told CL that Bidwell wouldn’t be available for interviews at this time. Presented with a list of questions regarding criticisms of the “Tampa Baes” pre-existing cast and how decision makers landed on them for the show, PR also declined to comment on the record.

According to a 2017 “Race in the Writers’ Room” study by Darnell Hunt, Dean of Social Sciences at UCLA, nearly two-thirds (65.4%) of all shows had no Black writers in the writers’ rooms. More shocking: more than 90% of shows were led by white showrunners. When these types of stark disparities are not challenged, it becomes difficult for Black stories to be told properly or to be told at all.

Diversity and inclusion in the writers’ rooms as well as the cast is important because representation is important. There have been many studies done on the positive psychological effects of accurate representation across all races, sexualities, and gender expressions.

“I feel that seeing someone that is like you, that presents in the way that you present or presents in the way that you in your mind see yourself, means so much,” says 19-year-old Uniekue (whose legal name is Daniel Akomolafe) of Atlanta, Georgia. They are Black and identify as genderfluid. Uniekue recounts a “life-changing” moment when they saw a picture of Billy Porter wearing an androgynous outfit.

“He was wearing a beautiful suit that was then cut into a mermaid-style gown and I saw that and I was like, ‘I feel so deeply connected to whatever is going on here.’ And that was part of how I realized I was genderfluid. Seeing that for the first time was revolutionary for me. The more and more we have Black queer people present in the media, the more we can bring a sense of normalcy to it and show that these people exist,” Uniekue says.

Uniekue made a Tik Tok about the “Tampa Baes” controversy when the cast photo was first released, expressing their opinion on it. It went viral, receiving over 190K views and 62K likes—but not everyone was agreeing with them.

“When I made the video and it started doing numbers on queer Tik Tok, the way in which I was attacked by white queer people…I was like, ‘Oh, y’all was not happy to hear me say that!’” Uniekue says. “When you have a presence online you open yourself up to criticism…but I was berated in the comment section. I’ve dealt with a lot of white fragility in my life so it wasn’t that serious but I was like, ‘Okay so I was definitely right.’”

People like Uniekue will continue to be loud about diverse representation in the media because it’s still a prevalent issue today. And when the positive effects of representation done right are so great, it’s something worth speaking up about. It allows young queer people to have a role model to look up to or to have a reference point when it comes to their journey toward self-discovery and identity. But perhaps overall, it allows them to look positively toward the future.

“One of the things I always say is that TV and film teach us how to dream,” Deggans says. “It often teaches people what might be possible for them when the situation that they’re in is limited. You can turn on the TV and see someone who might be a little bit like you doing something you could never imagine being possible because of where you’re personally at or what’s physically around you.”

They are Black and identify as genderfluid. Uniekue recounts a “life-changing” moment when they saw a picture of Billy Porter wearing an androgynous outfit.

“He was wearing a beautiful suit that was then cut into a mermaid-style gown and I saw that and I was like, ‘I feel so deeply connected to whatever is going on here.’ And that was part of how I realized I was genderfluid. Seeing that for the first time was revolutionary for me. The more and more we have Black queer people present in the media, the more we can bring a sense of normalcy to it and show that these people exist,” Uniekue says.

Uniekue made a Tik Tok about the “Tampa Baes” controversy when the cast photo was first released, expressing their opinion on it. It went viral, receiving over 190K views and 62K likes—but not everyone was agreeing with them.

“When I made the video and it started doing numbers on queer Tik Tok, the way in which I was attacked by white queer people…I was like, ‘Oh, y’all was not happy to hear me say that!’” Uniekue says. “When you have a presence online you open yourself up to criticism…but I was berated in the comment section. I’ve dealt with a lot of white fragility in my life so it wasn’t that serious but I was like, ‘Okay so I was definitely right.’”

People like Uniekue will continue to be loud about diverse representation in the media because it’s still a prevalent issue today. And when the positive effects of representation done right are so great, it’s something worth speaking up about. It allows young queer people to have a role model to look up to or to have a reference point when it comes to their journey toward self-discovery and identity. But perhaps overall, it allows them to look positively toward the future.

“One of the things I always say is that TV and film teach us how to dream,” Deggans says. “It often teaches people what might be possible for them when the situation that they’re in is limited. You can turn on the TV and see someone who might be a little bit like you doing something you could never imagine being possible because of where you’re personally at or what’s physically around you.”

After Tom Cruise’s discussion with the production over healthcare during filming, ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ has returned to the film sets and apparently the entire spy gang is back.

Mission: Impossible 7 has had a somewhat chaotic shoot. Obviously, the pandemic is the first thing that has prevented them from filming with the ease that is needed particularly in films like these, in which there are many locations, a considerable amount of extras and, of course, the large production team. However, the American filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible – Secret Nation) has partnered with Tom Cruise for the fourth time and they have had the courage and the utmost care to make the filming take place.

Let us remember that a media scandal derived from They leaked it from audios in which Cruise yelled at him and scold part of the production team because they were not following the sanitary measures to the letter, which resulted in the resignation of five people from Mission: Impossible 7, This without leaving aside the fact that filming was stopped last August due to a serious accident on set, so they had a tough time finishing production on the film.

A few days ago, Simon Pegg, better known in the saga as Benji Dunn, began to give clues that the shoot was taking shape again. He first uploaded a photo to his social media of when he, Cruise and Ving Rhames were filming Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol in the United Arab Emirates. The sequel was made a decade ago and in the image he wrote a message that attracted attention: “Back for just over 10 years for number 7 still without a title”, which indicated that they had started to shoot again.

Apparently Pegg has no restrictions from Paramount, as he has uploaded several stories on his Instagram account. In one he saw how he was tested for COVID-19 and in another on the plane that will take him to the United Arab Emirates to film. For his part, Tom Cruise has not commented on the matter or issued any statement, but the protagonist of Jack Reacher and Top Gun: Maverick has been very conscious since the pandemic began. Mission: Impossible 7 It has a tentative date for November 19, 2021, although we know that this may change depending on how the world situation regarding the health emergency unfolds and if more cinemas around the world can already open.
