Must-See LGBTQ TV: 'My House' premiere, new seasons of 'The Handmaid's Tale' and 'Into the Badlands'

Grab the remote, set your DVR or queue up your streaming service of choice! GLAAD is bringing you the highlights LGBTQ on TV this week. Check back every Sunday for up-to-date coverage in LGBTQ-inclusive programming on TV.

AMC’s fantasy drama Into the Badlands begins its third season Sunday night. Set it a post-apocalyptic world after the fall of civilization, the show fallows the battles and quests of the remaining civilization in the Badlands. One warrior is a young woman named Tilda, who fights under the Baron known as “The Widow.” Last season saw Tilda begin a romance with the “Doll,” Odessa. Last season ended with Odessa rescuing Tilda and the two running away together, but both are set to appear in the third season. In the premiere, Sunny returns to the Badlands, seeking a cure for his son Henry; The Widow and Chua wage a bloody civil war; a new threat emerges. Into the Badlands: Sunday, 10pm on AMC.

Season two of Emmy Award-winning and GLAAD Media Award-nominated drama series The Handmaid’s Tale premieres on Hulu this Tuesday. The show continues to paint the picture of the Dystopian Gilead, where women are subjugated and treated as sub-human. Among the core characters are out actress Samira Wiley’s Moira, a lesbian who managed to escape Gilead last season; Emily, a handmaid who was ominously escorted away in the first season; and a new introduction of Sylvia (played by out actress Clea DuVall), who will play Emily’s wife in flashbacks. Hopefully these queer women will be placed front and center for this new season. The Handmaid’s Tale: Wednesday on Hulu.

On Wednesday, the new Viceland docuseries My House takes viewers into the New York City ballroom scene, where it follows queer dancers including Tati 007, Alex Mugler, Jelani Mizrahi, Lolita Balenciaga and Relish Milan, with iconic house mother Precious Ebony as the commentator. It shows the lives and talent of queer people of color, and takes the audience into this vibrant and exceptional world. My House: Wednesday, 10:30pm on Viceland.
