One more month till the next season of ‘The L Word’ starts

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

Check out this teaser clip promoting the next season of Showtime’s The L Word, starting again on January 7th. I can’t wait! (Hat tip to Best Lesbian-ish Day Ever.)

I’m a huge fan of this show. Unlike Grey’s Anatomy and Heroes, it doesn’t play the “color-blind” card. Instead, it actually addresses racial issues, particularly having to do with Bette’s mixed race identity, her interracial relationship with ex Tina, her worries about Tina bringing up their biracial daughter in an all-white family with her new white boyfriend and his son, etc.

Check out some old Racialicious posts about The L Word:
