Being a queer woman of color, made the cancellation of Brooklyn Nine-Nine all those months ago, hurt even more than I expected. Rosa Diaz, this badass, out of the box, and real representation of what it was to be Latina, had just come out as bisexual. And before we couldRead More →

As if NBC hadn’t, already, surpassed by far our expectations as a television network after it heroically rescued Brooklyn Nine-Nine from cancellation doom at the end of spring, it seems like the network execs keep trying to amaze.
