The queer comedy series “These Thems” — whose co-writer and star, Gretchen Wylder, is a St. Louis native — ​dives headfirst into the NYC lesbian/GNC scene by following four main characters: Gretchen, a newly out, high-energy lesbian looking to make up for lost time; Vero, a nonbinary dog walker turned queer educator; Asher, a shy and private trans man who passes as cisgender and likes it that way; and Kevin, Gretchen’s gay best friend, who is simply looking for love. With its snappy dialogue and engaging performances, this eight-episode web series — by turns charming, empowering, and hilarious — features lots of mixed signals, some steamy and often amusingly awkward sexual encounters, a few secret crushes, and even a handful of musical numbers. Tracy E. Gilchrist, feminism editor of ​The Advocate, writes: “Playful, sexy, informative, and crucial, ‘These Thems’ shines a light on a panoply of underrepresented queer identities and changes the game for nonbinary visibility.”
