Totally, irrefutably, in-your-face queer: It’s what makes the eighth season of MTV’s reality series “Are You the One?” groundbreaking — and utterly fabulous.

 The ladies of Litchfield are back.

The seventh and final season of Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” was released July 26; as with previous seasons, there are 13 episodes.

The 2019 nominations for the 71st Annual Emmy Awards have been announced, and they are the queerest ever. Tony Award-winner Billy Porter made history as the first openly gay Black man ever nominated for an Emmy.

Based on his sharp memoir-manifesto “I’m Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves,” out comedian Ryan O’Connell has fashioned a new Netflix series based on his life as a gay man with cerebral palsy.

In “Special,” O’Connell stars as Ryan Keyes, a shy and withdrawn man who has a codependent relationship with his mother. Deft and poignant, the series depicts cerebral palsy truthfully and without exploitation.

O’Connell, along with That’s Wonderful Productions, has created a show worth crowing about. With eight 15-minute episodes, “Special” is relatable to nearly any viewer as, above all, it tackles the characters’ challenges as they seek emotional and physical independence.
