The New 'L Word' Trailer Promises Lots of Gay Sex

Alice, Shane and Bette in The L Word

The Chart is getting bigger and bigger as we get to know the new characters a little bit better in the latest trailer for Showtime’s reboot The L Word: Generation Q. And this trailer has a little bit of everything! Lesbians running for mayor, sexy pool swimming, queers experiencing love for the first time, crying in church, and lots, and lots of gay sex.

The trailer starts off showing us what the original L Word lesbians and bisexuals are up to, with Shane stepping off a private jet, Bette running to be the “first lesbian mayor of Los Angeles,” and Alice looks like she’s trying on motherhood for the first time with newcomer Stephanie Allynne’s kid from a previous relationship.

Then we get a look at the new characters joining the show. Dani (Arienne Mandi), a Latina PR executive, talks about being inspired by Bette and proposing to her girlfriend. A new crew of queers moves into Bette and Tina’s old house and just about everyone makes out with someone.

Sarah Finley, played by new cast member Jacqueline Toboni (best known for playing rebellious crimefighter Trubel on NBC’s Grimm) really steals the show in this one. She asks strangers if they’re gay, goes by her last name, makes out with multiple people, and wears a caribener with her keys on her belt loop . It looks like Finley might be the new Shane.

The trailer also shows Leo Sheng’s character Micah getting flustered looking at a shirtless hunk who just moved in next door. Then later he’s making out with the same hot neighbor on a couch, so it looks like things are going well for him.

Unfortunately, the clip doesn’t show any glimpses of either of the trans women in the cast, Jamie Clayton or Sophie Giannamore. Generation Q has been criticized for its lack of trans lesbians on the show. Sheng adds some great  — and much needed — trans masc representation as the series has a history of treating trans characters pretty badly (Max’s overnight facial hair and mood swings are just one example).

We’ll find out soon enough how Generation Q treats all of its characters, as the first season of The L Word: Generation Q premieres on Showtime Sunday, December 8.
