Netflix’s GLAMOROUS may be the queerest new TV series this Summer


Please do not say a word to Ron DeSantis but Netflix has just announced a new TV series that they promise to be super gay. Glamorous is the story of aimless twenty-something Marco Meija,  (Miss Benny) a gender non-conforming makeup artist who gets the opportunity of a lifetime when model-turned-mogul Madolyn Addison (Kim Cattrall) taps them for an important role in their makeup empire

The series from creator Jordan Nardino (Star Trek: DiscoverySmash), will feature a ‘Fire Island’ reunion, drag queens, &  so much more. It also represents the first leading television role for Miss Benny, who first broke through on YouTube as a teen, and has since built an impressive career for themself as an actor and musician.

Also in the ensemble are Jade Peyton (iZombie) as Madolyn’s assistant Venetia, Michael Hsu Rosen (Looking) and Ayesha Harris (Daisy Jones & The Six) as two graphic designers at the makeup company, and Graham Parkhurst (Supergirl) as an acquaintance of Marco’s named Parker, who is said to symbolize “unobtainable gay cis-male perfection.”

Actually, Glamorous doubles as a bit of a Fire Island reunion, with Zane Phillips’ and his old co-stars Joel Kim Booster and Matt Rogers who are both slated to guest star in an episode together. Per an early press image, it seems those two are still dressed for a weekend at the Pines.

And if that’s not gay enough for you, then, first of all, don’t get greedy. But how about a whole bunch of drag royalty? Also among the guest star list are Drag Race All Stars All Winners runner-up Monét X Change, the first-ever winner of Canada’s Drag Race—what’s her name?—Priyanka, and Brooklyn drag legends Charlene Incarnate, Chiquitita, and Serena Tea.

In short, it sounds like Netflix’s Glamorous is going to be the queer series to watch this summer and June 22 can’t come soon enough.
