This Creator Is Proving Why Non-Binary Representation Matters
Web series are leading the way in moving beyond the gender binary.
By Lauren Strapagiel

A new wave of creators aren’t waiting for mainstream entertainment to catch up to the realities of gender identity, they’re just making it happen. And Kaitlyn Alexander is at the forefront.

Alexander is the mastermind behind Couple-ish, a web series they both created and star in. It centres on Dee, a non-binary, bisexual artist who enters into a sham marriage to keep their new roommate in the country. It’s instantly endearing, with LGBT inside jokes and characters that are too awkward not to love.

“I just saw this gap in media. I was not seeing people like me represented so it’s like, why don’t I just start doing it. Somebody has to start it,” Alexander told BuzzFeed Canada. “I just wanted to create a series where somebody who’s non-binary can be a romantic lead or at the forefront, and not a joke.” Often, says Alexander, characters without a fixed gender are non-human entities like aliens, and often a punchline. 

“Representation is important because it gives people opportunities to see themselves in media, which is validating. It can make you feel like you’re not alone, and that’s super important,” they said. They’ve even received messages from non-binary people saying Alexander’s work helped them explain their identities to their parents.

(WE NEED MORE BI BOYS IN MEDIA SPREAD THE WORD)

Webseries Recommendations!

Looking for something new to watch? Here I’ve compiled my top favorite webseries with a little info + links. Feel free to let me know what you thought, or send me your recs! 

1) Barbelle

The series starts with Alice and Veronica announcing their breakup as a couple to their record label, with Alice suggesting that their band -the super-successful pop duo Barbelle - break up as well. Only small problem - their contract requires another album and a tour. And - oh yeah - they have to still fake their relationship in the public eye. This is hands down my favorite webseries and I honestly rewatch it probably once a month because I love it so much. 
Why I Love It: Gwenlyn Cumyn (my top lady crush), crazy colorful outfits, angst, Veronica’s sarcasm, ladies making music

Watch here: Season 1 (Season two is in the works!)

2) All For One

(Oh hey look it’s Gwenlyn again!)
Dorothy Castlemore is determined to get into the Mu Sigma Theta sorority and follow in her grandmother’s footsteps. It might be her only reason for going to college, honestly. When she doesn’t get a bid to join MST, she is heartbroken - until she finds out the real reason why she  - and her roomie/crush Connie - didn’t get accepted. With the help of her friends - both at school and online - she plans to get justice. ALSO WORTH NOTING: hilariously bad impressions, importance of online friendships, bisexual representation, use of the insult “douchecanoe”, and also probably the cutest first kiss ever in the last episode.
Watch here: Season 1 (season 2 is in the works!)

3) Lauren

Lauren Weil (played by Troian Bellisario), a soldier in the US Army, is raped and decides to file a report. She is informed by her superiors that little to no action will be taken against her attackers. Lauren deals with how rape and the sexual harassment of women in the military is often treated lightly, and how she decides to fight back against it. Troian Bellisario is my favorite actress, and her performance here sticks with you.
**Trigger warning for graphic depiction of rape, including repeated discussion of the incident and harassment of the victim, and for gaslighting/trivializing/victim blaming regarding the attack
Watch Here: Seasons 1 and 2

4) Carmilla

Probably everybody on the wlw side of Tumblr has seen Carmilla, but if you haven’t yet, go watch it, because it is the gayest, campiest, best thing ever. There are several seasons, a Christmas Special, and oh yeah, a movie, so no shortage of these two. 
Laura falls for brooding vampire Carmilla; over the course of three seasons they and their friends deal with an anglerfish god, an evil dean, a sentient library, and the actual gates of hell being opened up. You got your epic, angsty, beautiful f/f love story, your good vs. evil fight, and plenty of laughs along the way. 
Watch here: Season 1 || Season 2 || Season 3 

5) V Morgan Is Dead

V awakens in an elevator at a mysterious all-white office building called the Sixth Floor. Shortly thereafter she learns she has died, and is given a choice - get her life back but work for the Sixth Floor to fix missed connections between people, or remain dead. The first rule of the Sixth Floor: Never talk about the Sixth Floor. Or you might just get erased.
Watch here: Season 1 

6.) Couple-ish

Dee and their sister Amy decide to look online to help find a Dee a new roommate. Enter Rachel, a girl from London currently studying abroad. One day Dee stumbles upon an email on Rachel’s phone that says Rachel has applied for her visa by claiming to be in a common-law-relationship. With Dee. Who is having none of it. And now they have to fake their relationship and fool the government - by maintaining a couples channel. 
Also super important: a nonbinary lead character! 
Watch here : Season 1 || Season 2

Kaitlyn Alexander

“The representation is out there, and there’s more of it than ever, but I think in achieving that we also have to remember to include queer people of colour, and the butch and not-feminine sides of the community as well.We’ve still got ways to go. So that’s future projects, that’s my main goal, to include everyone. It’s a community, it needs to be a community.“
