Get Your First Look at ‘Pose’ Season 2 With Fierce New Key Art (PHOTOS)
FX has released the first key art for the second season of Pose, and the looks are 💯🔥! The four images show Angel, Blanca, Elektra and Pray Tell dressed up and looking fierce.
Pose, co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, shines a spotlight on New York’s underground ball culture in the late 1980s. The series features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar and Angelica Ross. The series also stars Billy Porter, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Angel Bismark Curiel, Dyllón Burnside, Sandra Bernhard and Charlayne Woodard.
The groundbreaking first season of Pose took viewers within the vibrant and complex ballroom scene shortly after Blanca Rodriguez (Mj Rodriguez) received an HIV diagnosis. Faced with her own mortality, she dedicates herself to leaving a legacy and starts her very own “house,” which provides support to LGBTQ youth rejected by their birth families. Blanca’s newly formed House of Evangelista becomes a haven for anyone searching for a home, and a force in the ballroom, culminating with Blanca receiving her community’s ultimate honor when she is crowned “Mother of the Year.”
Season 2 rejoins the world three years later, in the year 1990. Madonna’s Music video for “Vogue” is all over the airwaves, and the ball scene is being exposed to the mainstream for the first time, forcing the House of Evangelista to reevaluate its goals. Meanwhile, the AIDS crisis continues to ravage the community and the reaction from a group of activists reaches a fever pitch.
