The TV gods have given black lesbians a gift of total black girl magic in the form of a new TV show on CW called, Black Lightning. The show follows a family of black superheroes. It centers around Jefferson Pierce, a retired superhero and school principal and his two daughters, Anissa and Jessica.
Our black lesbian superhero is Anissa aka Thunder. She is a medical student who volunteers at her dad’s school. In the very second episode we meet the black woman that Anissa has been seeing for a year.
The Relationship Talk
Chenoa says although she loves the sex, she wants more! She wants Anissa to meet her parents and her friends and become more involved in her life like a real couple.
As if there is not enough for black lesbians to be excited about, in this episode we are gifted with a sexy scene between the two on primetime NETWORK TV. As if this is the most natural thing in the world–and it IS.
Black women loving and making love to other black women is normal and natural and happens in millions of households around the world. Seeing and hearing these two melanin queens caress and kiss and moan on television is groundbreaking! Talk about representation!
Those of us who have spent time between the sheets with another black woman can already tell you about the magic of our lovemaking. We already know that our women are superheroes. Check out the scene that made this black lesbian swoon.
An Accepting Family
The show’s creator’s have made it clear that there will not be some overwrought, angst-ridden coming out episode because Anissa’s family already knows and accepts who she is. They will be focusing on telling a layered story where her sexuality is not portrayed as some oddity.
This story line is an amazing advancement considering that for many years, black superheroes were very rarely portrayed on screen and black lesbian superheroes even less.
