Someone Asked For Anya Taylor-Joy And Zendaya To Portray A Lesbian Couple And Twitter Said Yes
Anya Taylor-Joy is definitely having a moment after the incredible success of “The Queen’s Gambit.” The Argentinian actress is on everyone’s mind after seeing her as a chess playing genius. Now, people want to see her and Zendaya as a lesbian couple in a period piece.
One tweet has sparked a fantastical conversation.
Author Tiffany Summer tweeted a fantasy project she would love to see: Zendaya and Anya Taylor Joy as lovers in a period piece. The photos that she uses are of the two at the 2018 Met Gala. That year’s theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” created some of the most iconic looks. The two women happened to come in outfits that could be from the same time period.
Some people are already trying to write this story to get it made.
The world seems to be ready for this story to become a thing. Queer representation is so needed right now. While there have been more queer stories told, people clearly want and need more lesbian stories out there. It is also something we have all seen from these two ladies.
Zendaya plays Rue in “Euphoria” and has even won an Emmy for her role in the HBO show. Rue is a queer teen and we have seen her relationship with Jules in the popular show.
Anya Taylor-Joy is fresh off of the success of Netflix’s “The Queen’s Gambit.” While her character, Beth Harmon, isn’t explicitly queer, there was a moment in the show. Beth spent a night with a French woman that she found attractive while in Paris for a tournament.
Basically, we have already seen these women play queer women and we want more.
There is a lot of interest in Taylor-Joy and Zendaya on their own. The two actresses are big names and their fan bases continue to grow. A mash-up of these two women would likely be a success.
Some people tweeted their discontent for the pairing of two more thin, femme lesbians in another period piece. The complaints include criticism that the tweet highlights non queer women to play queer roles.
Meanwhile, some people pointed out that this pairing could be the perfect way to do a live-action version of “Utena.”
“Revolutionary Girl Utena” is an anime show that aired in 1997. Utena is a tomboyish girl who demonstrates many masculine qualities, including impressive sword-wielding abilities. The entire time she is participating in a series of duels to win the hand of Anthy Himemiya, a.k.a. Rose Bride. Seems like a real fit, tbh.
