Because we desperately need something to look forward to right now.
Queeries is a weekly column by CBC Arts producer Peter Knegt that queries LGBTQ art, culture and/or identity through a personal lens.
It seems fair to assume that the vast majority of us are pretty desperate for something to look forward to right now. The holidays (or whatever those were) are over, winter is in full force and Omicron is in even fuller force, leaving many of us clinging to our sanity for dear life. So I decided to kick off a new year of this column by relaying something providing me with a tiny bit of positive anticipation right now: some very promising queer film and TV coming our way in 2022. And although this is not the article you truly want to read right now (that one would be entitled “Pandemic slows to a crawl as governments turn unprecedented focus to climate change and societal inequalities”), hopefully it at least provides a few minutes of amusement!
