Queer Women Are Losing Their Shit Over The Perfection Of "San Junipero"

The "Black Mirror" episode that will break you like no other.

Posted on

WARNING: Big, beautiful, queer spoilers ahead for Season 3, Episode 4 of Black Mirror, aka "San Junipero," aka an hour of television that will break you.

After what has been a bleak year for queer women on television (RIP Lexa and Poussey ❤️), "San Junipero" is the breath of fresh air queer women deserve. And we are here for it.

Let's start with Kelly, who is a bi woman of color and a QUEEN.

Her bisexuality isn't downplayed one bit. Her previous marriage to a man is treated with the importance it deserves. Because bisexuality is real, y'all:

“Forty-nine years. I was with him for forty-nine years. You can’t begin to imagine. You can’t know. The bond, the commitment, the boredom, the yearning, the laughter, the love of it. The fucking love. You just cannot know.”

😭 😭 😭

Then there's Yorkie, who is basically gay Barb.

And together, their chemistry is queer ✨magic✨.

KELLY AND YORKIE ARE SO PRECIOUS AND PURE AND BEAUTIFUL

People think they are shining rays of light in a dark world.

I CAN'T BELIEVE KELLY AND YORKIE SAVED 2016 THEY SAVED THE GAYS THEY ENDED HOMOPHOBIA

And unlike every other goddamn show, they get to have an honest to goodness happy ending.

They get to be the most beautiful and perfect wives literally forever.

Oh my god I need to go to sleep but Kelly and yorkie are literally going to live forever for sapphic infinity I can't process it

It's like a giant middle finger to the "bury your gays" bullshit.

And the tears. Oh my god, the tears.

San Junipero will tear your heart apart and put it back together all at once.

If you weren't a blubbering mess by the end, please visit your family doctor and ensure you have a heart.

I just watched Black Mirror's San Junipero. I legit did an Oprah ugly cry twice during that hour.

More queer lady feels were felt than ever before.

And from bloody BLACK MIRROR of all shows.

san junipero aka "the grimmest dystopian show on earth went soft solely to give its queer couple a happy ending and i am in TEARS"

We are shook. We are saved.

BLACK MIRROR: SAN JUNIPERO GOT ALL THE WLW LIKE

We may never get over this.

me waiting for death so i can go to san junipero

Also shout out to Greg, for showing us the purest queer allyship.

And now "Heaven Is A Place On Earth" is officially a queer lady anthem.

Attention heteros: "Heaven is a Place on Earth" is now a gay song. You don't own it anymore. #BlackMirror #SanJunipero

On behalf of queer ladies, thank you Black Mirror for this most beautiful gift.
