Queer fandom provides an outlet and a true voice in the conversation about LGBTQ+ representation in television, from well-known shows like The L Word and Pose to Xenia, Wynona Earp and Carmilla. Queering The Script examines the rising power of the fans and audiences shaping representation on TV, the relationship between fandom and activism, and what lies ahead for visibility and inclusiveness. Whether you consider yourself part of the fandom community or simply an outsider looking into this awesome world, you are sure to be touched by the film in the way that the TV shows touch all the subjects of the film.
