FX’s “Pose” Season 2 Has A Premiere Date And Fans Are Voguing With Excitement
FX has announced a release date for Season 2 of “Pose” and the fans are screaming “mutha!” The critically acclaimed show features the largest cast of mostly trans, and almost virtually all LGBTQ actors of color.
The first season is set in 1987-88 New York. The show gives us the raw, the real, the queer Latino representation we need. All the while, “Pose” is telling the painful story of the AIDS crisis that decimated the community through the vibrant and enticing ballroom scene.
The men and women of “pose” who we have come to love so dearly will be back on our TV screens on June 9.

Naturally, Twitter erupted with screams and delight. Not only are fans gagging over the news, but so many people are also clambering over each other to shout their excitement the loudest.
Mark your calendars.

Billy, will clearly be ready to welcome all of you back, hunny. Obviously, all eyes are going to be on the upcoming costumes since they were just to die for the last season.
Legit, all of queer Twitter was fist-bumping with sheer excitement and anticipation.

It’s still two months out, but the actors are already getting together for rehearsals for the first time in over a year. It’s almost like they want their fans to get so hyped.
Season 1 gave us all things gaudy and ’80s.

So far, people know that Season 2 is going to jump into the ’90s and they can’t wait to see what creator Ryan Murphy has in store. Hint: It’s going to be a little less pink.

MJ Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Billy Porter, and Indya Moore will obviously be sporting bright colors all season long. Next season will look a little more like this.
The teaser trailer promises a more *electric* flare to Season 2.

The teaser gives us Dominique Jackson, MJ Rodriguez, and Indya Moore striking all the poses in a very Madonna “Vogue”-esque way.
Seems like the cast has been keeping the secret pretty well.

MJ Rodriguez posted, “Cats out of the Bag! Get Ready for Season 2 of @poseonfx#JUNE 9th on #SUNDAYS at 9pm eastern Standard Time so excited!!! #THANKYOU @deadline @fxnetworks”
Here’s what we know about the upcoming season.

Indya Moore confirms what we all are gathering: “New looks. New attitude. New season.”
Murphy says the season will start the day Madonna released ‘Vogue.’

That was in March 1990, which means that the show will be doing a one-year time leap, landing us right into the early ’90s. That also means we’ll start to see people participating in “Act Up” and caring about the AIDS epidemic.
We expect to see writer Janet Mock continue directing some episodes.

Janet Mock is the lead writer for the show, which, unlike “Transparent,” means that the entire show is scripted by an actual person of trans experience. Murphy begged her to direct an episode in Season 1, and since then she’s been recruited to direct an entire Netflix series.
People can’t wait to see the houses battle it out as we transition to a completely new decade of fashion and music.

If you recall, Blanca just won the Mother of the Year trophy and is now an iconic House legend. We’ll continue to see her live with HIV.
It’s important to Mock to show characters who are living with HIV.

She’s tired of seeing an LGBTQ person introduced in an episode to learn that they have AIDS and die by the end of the show. Nope. That’s one part of the reality, but we don’t have many depictions of what it’s like to truly live with the terminal, stigmatized disease.
Hunnies, don’t think we underestimate how important it is we all tune in on June 9.

Did we mention the season airs on June 9th yet? Yes? Okay. Well. There you go.
Then there’s this major conflict of interest:

We’re queer. We care about Broadway. We want to see Lin-Manuel Miranda win all the trophies. Why is this the Sophie’s Choice of the year? :'(
One Twitter user made this bold claim:

Do you agree? It is pretty intense that they would want to try and compete against the Tony Awards.
That means people are going to hype this show like nobody’s business.

People are craving representation. That is what this show is offering to a part of the LGBTQ community that is often ignored by the white, cis LGBTQ community.
Be sure to follow all our favorite Latino actors to get some backstage glimpses at the next season.

So watch out, mi queer familia.

This show is coming for you. It’s stealing rainbow hearts everywhere.
We’re all hoping we get more duets with MJ Rodriguez and Billy Porter.

Because we didn’t cry enough last season. :’)
Mark your calendars, mijas!!
