LGBTQ TV Recommendation: Netflix's 'Anne With an E' Season 2 Streaming Now


Anne With an E is an excellent Canadian drama television series based on the 1908 novel Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, and adapted by Emmy Award-winning writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett. It airs on CBC in Canada, and elsewhere in the world it is available for streaming on Netflix. The first season consists of seven episodes. 
Season 2 premiered on Netflix on July 6, 2018, and will premiere on CBC on September 23, 2018.

The story takes place in the late 19th century, when brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert decide to take on an orphan boy to help out around their ancestral farm of Green Gables, on the outskirts of the town of Avonlea, on Prince Edward Island. When Matthew goes to pick the child up at the railway station, he finds not a boy, but a high-spirited and talkative girl, Anne Shirley. At first, the Cuthberts are inclined to send her back, particularly after Marilla's brooch goes missing, and Anne, in despair, runs away. Reconciled and settled in her new home and school, Anne once again displays boundless enthusiasm which is nevertheless easily turned into despair when things go wrong, which they often do. Slowly, her ebullient nature wins over those around her.

This version of Anne is much grittier and more dramatic than previous incarnations of the story. Also, in this version, especially in Season 2, there are gay people! In fact, episode seven is all about a Queer SoirĂ©e. The series shows what life for LGBTQ people might have been like for several of the characters in 19th century Canada. Clichere for a great article about the gay aspect of the series from Indie Wire. Watch the scene below featuring Amybeth McNulty as Anne and Cory Gruter-Andrew as Cole discussing the pain of being "different." The entire series is well worth watching.

I watched some of the first season and it certainly has a different spin from the usual portrayal. What do you mean early gay people, I thought homosexuality was invented in the sixties?

How can I explain this Miracle in my life

to my Mother from Romania,suffering from Mucinous Adino Carcinoma Stage 4 Cancer. She was in very critical stage unable to take any food and sustaining the life with dripping.She also suffering from heavy vomiting and fluid build up on both legs. Health condition is very bad and always need the help of some one.
We tried so many ways and and could not apply any solid food or medicine to her cure.

I had to search if I could get my mother cure from the Mucinous Adino Carcinoma Stage 4 Cancer, then I saw comments of testimonies of patients getting cured with Herbal medicines
I wish to immediately I saw a lady from Italy who got cure with HIV/AIDS from the herbalist i was referred to at the initial time for my mother cure.
I felt I should blame myself not to have confident enough to trust my friend, knowing fully well she had been confirmed HSV negative.
I thought It was late,and invited my friend to come help me discuss with him if I'm to take my mother for the cure in his home.
The risk of stressing my mother travelling down there, I showed him all the test results and how she feels about it.
He told me to follow up the instructions and apply the medicine to her accordingly.
To my greatest surprise I received the medicine and apply as instructed and before she could finish her first bottle of the liquid form, I was very excited telling the doctor she is recovering, her cure was confirmed after 48 days of applying the medicine and now strong and healthy, love you mum and special regards to Dr.Odey Abang for your cures to my friend and Mum
