Bitch: A Feminist Response to Pop Culture - - TRAVEL -

1 Vida (May 6) In a new of­fer­ing from Starz, Vida fol­lows the lives of two sis­ters who are strug­gling with iden­tity, fam­ily, and gen­tri­fi­ca­tion in an East L.A. Lat­inx com­mu­nity. We’re ex­cited to see what showrun­ner Tanya Sara­cho has in store for us!

2 Ocean’s 8 (June 8) San­dra Bul­lock is re­viv­ing the Ocean’s fran­chise as Deb­bie Ocean (sis­ter of Danny), and she’s gath­er­ing a crew of women criminals to pull off a heist at New York City’s an­nual Met Gala. Ocean’s 8 also stars Mindy Kal­ing, He­lena Bon­ham Carter, Sarah Paul­son, Cate Blanchett, Awk­wa­fina, and Ri­hanna, so we are bit­ing our nails al­ready.

3 Sick (June 5) In Sick, writer Porochista Khakpour tracks her jour­ney to a di­ag­no­sis of late-stage Lyme dis­ease by cen­ter­ing on the places where the events that changed her life oc­curred: New York, Los An­ge­les, New Mex­ico, and Ger­many. (Read her con­ver­sa­tion with writer Alexan­der Chee on page 40.)

4 Dietland (June 4) Based on Sarai Walker’s 2015 novel of the same name, AMC’S new se­ries Dietland fol­lows fash­ion writer Plum Ket­tle, who’s re­cruited by a fem­i­nist vig­i­lante art col­lec­tive known as Cal­liope House. Walker says she wrote Dietland to be a Fight Club for women, and that sounds like some­thing worth watch­ing.

5 Fahren­heit 451 (June 4) HBO is bring­ing the 1953 Ray Brad­bury dystopian clas­sic to the small screen, star­ring Michael B. Jor­dan as Guy Mon­tag, a fire­man whose job is burn­ing books that have been out­lawed.

6 The Evolve En­ter­tain­ment Fund The Evolve En­ter­tain­ment Fund—in part­ner­ship with the City of Los An­ge­les, stu­dios, net­works, and non­prof­its—is cre­at­ing ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties for peo­ple of color, women, and low-in­come res­i­dents of L.A. The fund has al­ready estab­lished 150 paid sum­mer in­tern­ships that will be­gin this year, and plans are in place to ex­pand that num­ber to 250 by the end of 2018 and to 500 by 2020.

10 Sum­mer Bod­ies Now that it’s sum­mer, all the cor­po­rate body-shamers will be out in full force telling you to get your sum­mer body ready. Ig­nore them: Your body is al­ready your sum­mer body. Get out and en­joy that sun­shine!

11 Bad Politi­cians The 2018 midterms might com­pletely change our po­lit­i­cal land­scape. We still have a while un­til Novem­ber, but pri­mary sea­son is al­ready kick­ing off in lots of states—with the po­ten­tial to un­seat lots of bad Gop-ers. Make sure you vote!

12 Judge Per­sky Santa Clara County Su­pe­rior Court Judge Aaron Per­sky (who sen­tenced Brock Turner to only six months in jail) could be re­called, pend­ing a June 5 vote. Bye-bye, Per­sky!
