TV series shows Muslim lesbian and black woman's love story, Internet swipes right

The Bold Type boasts a beautiful love story between Kat Edison, a queer black woman exploring her sexuality, and Adena El-Amin, a Muslim lesbian.

A new American drama television series called The Bold Type is the internet’s new favourite thing. While the Hindi television cannot seem to move past ichadhaari naagins and women marrying little children, The Bold Type features an unconventional love story (one that is acceptable). The show boasts a beautiful love story between Kat Edison, a queer black woman exploring her sexuality, and Adena El-Amin, a Muslim lesbian.

The Bold Type outlines the lives of three women, Jane, Kat and Sutton, working a women’s magazine in New York City. The lead character of Kat (Aisha Dee) gradually realises that she is not straight as she once believed. She learns of her sexuality through a photographer named Adena (Nikohl Boosheri). Adena is a proud Muslim who dons a hijab and is in tune with her sexual orientation.

What is truly remarkable about this lesbian pairing, that fans have adorably dubbed Kadena, is that they have done away with the blatant sensationalisation of same-sex female couples.

Even though the subject of LGBTQ is not unheard of, representation of such characters is infrequent in pop-culture. Additionally, most of the non-heterosexual characters on-screen are mostly not ideal or even at least bearable.

People are very much in love with this new Freeform TV series and have nothing but praises to sing for The Bold Type:
