Pose, which is currently airing on FX in the US, is set in 1980s New York, and portrays life in the city’s iconic queer ballroom culture – as most famously portrayed in the film Paris is Burning. It features the biggest transgender cast in the modern TV history and many crew members are also trans. Its first season has won acclaim from critics and viewers alike for its rich portrayal of the rainbow community and involving trans people in every part of creative work. It was announced this week that the show would be returning for a second season, the first one is still on air. Creator Ryan Murphy tweeted: “The category is: SECOND SEASON. Congrats to the cast and crew of Pose who worked so hard to make history. And a special thank you to John Landgraf at FX and Dana Walden at Fox for believing in this special project and this community so much.” Murphy, who has a string of other behemoth TV shows on air – anthology shows American Horror Story, American Crime Story and Feud and procedural 9-1-1 – has previously promised to donate all the profits from Pose to LGBT charities.
