Last week, I finished watching the premiere season of Pose, the new FX series that explores the lives of queer and trans people of color participating in the New York City ballroom scene in the 1980s. I’ll try to keep this post free of major spoilers, as it’s more introspection than a review, but I can’t promise I won’t reveal any important details to those who haven’t watched the show.
