Pop Style Opinionfest: HEARTSTOPPER, RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE and the Question of Queer Representation

Posted on August 11, 2023


For this week’s episode we opted to kick things off by batting around a feeling we’ve both been having about queer-themed media of late. With Heartstopper season 2 and Red, White & Royal Blue hitting screens this week, we decided to unpack why we don’t really feel like these shows have anything to do with us and how it makes us feel to see queer stories that aren’t necessarily being consumed by queer people.
After that, it’s a deep dive into the shallow pool of the latest And Just Like That…


Bitchy intro aside, we actually think this is the best episode of the series so far. We even think it could stand alongside any good episode of Sex and the City. No, really. Listen in and we’ll tell you why.
