The L Word: Gen Q may have been cancelled, but at least we can still see our fave crush being super queer onscreen


It will be no surprise to frequent readers of DIVA that Sepideh Maofi is one of my biggest celebrity crushes. I fell in love with Sepideh’s character, Gigi, on The L Word: Generation Q, and I have been a firm shipper of Gini (Gigi and Dani). And once news broke earlier this year that Gen Q had been cancelled, I resigned myself to being deprived of getting to marvel at Sepideh playing queer and staring seductively at the people she wants to pursue. 

So you can imagine my delight when I started seeing reviews flocking in from queers across the pond who were swooning over Sepideh in FX’s Class Of ‘09, where she and Kate Mara play FBI agents, Hour and Poet respectively, who flirt with each other across the three decades that the show’s plot follows. 

There’s so much to look forward to, and Sepideh’s performance is as captivating as always.

Class Of ‘09 is streaming on Hulu, UK viewers need to use ExpressVPN as the show is only available in Hulu’s US region.
