Why Kadena is the best queer representation of women I've ever seen.
There has been a lot of talk among fandom spaces lately about representation and what Kadena does and doesn’t mean for folks and this is just my personal take on why Kadena is the best representation I’ve ever had. Get some tea y’all and be ready for a lot of fucking words because this is a feelings explosion. This is basically a love letter to Kadena and The Bold Type.
I’m not trying to be dramatic when I say representation saves lives. I’m not just talking literally here (although a very REAL concern among LGBTQ folks in general), it saves lives because it shows you a visual reality on what it means to live as authentically and truthfully as possible. I can honestly say if it wasn’t for the media I don’t know if I would have ever found a world where I felt comfortable enough to be queer.
