Good Food News - Pose

In a fantastic review of the FX TV show Pose, Eater writer Bani Amore discusses the role of the food shared by the queer and trans people of color who are the characters in "houses" on the show. In the ballroom and drag worlds, “houses” represent alternative family models for those who have been ostracized from the nuclear norm and/or kicked out of their biological family.

Simply offering someone a seat at your table can be so much more powerful than a fancy meal barely touched by blood relatives who can’t tolerate each other. For the characters in Pose, it’s a reclamation of dignity that society has denied them. Food connects us, all of us, and there is always room at the table.
