Pose – FX – Available on BBC iPlayer - Rated: G
Pose is a ground-breaking US series exploring the underground worls of 1980s ball culture, set at the height of the AIDs epidemic.
Our thoughts – “If you’re a fan of famous Drag Race catch phrases, POSE will give you a history lesson on where they came from. Whilst some of the script has been made meme worthy on social media, the overarching story line for these characters brings a voice to those who went unheard.
Inspired by the 1990 documentary ‘Paris is Burning’, Pose offers a deeper look into the lives of the Black and Latino Trans and Gay stories that made up the New York Ball scene in 1987.
The show is celebrated for having the largest trans cast in scripted television history and we love to see the representation and authentic portrayals of the hard-hitting storylines. This series will definitely leave its mark, having you laugh one minute, and in tears by the next.”
Please note this series contains strong language, nudity and scenes of a sexual nature, some offensive language, and scenes some may find distressing.
