It meant a lot.

MOONLIGHT WON BEST PICTURE AT THE OSCARS SAN JUNIPERO WON BEST TV EPISODE AT THE EMMYS STORIES. ABOUT QUEER PEOPLE. CELEBRATING THEIR LOVE.

San Junipero turned Heaven is a Place on Earth into a queer anthem.

SAN JUNIPERO TELLS A QUEER INTERRACIAL LOVE STORY AND ALSO SCIENCE OR SOMETHING AND I AM BEAMING #Emmys

Of course, we can't have everything.

TBH Gugu Mbatha-Raw not even getting nommed for San Junipero is ridiculous.

But maybe there is hope after all.

Now that San Junipero is winning awards will more shows allow queer women to be happy
