Payton Hobart, a student from Santa Barbara, has known since age seven that he's going to be President of the United States. But first he'll have to navigate the most treacherous political landscape of all: Saint Sebastian High School.
Pose is set in the world of 1987 and "looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the rise of the luxury universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world."
Sydney is a teenage girl navigating the trials and tribulations of high school while dealing with the complexities of her family, her budding sexuality, and mysterious superpowers just beginning to awaken deep within her.
But quite frankly, was pushed way too hard. Damn near EVERYONE in Hollywood is gay? Hm, no, straight people do still exist. As a bisexual female, I found it to be trying too hard to shove our sexuality down the viewers' throat in hopes of gleaning some controversy or "kudos" from the LGBT community. Honestly, it would've hit a LOT harder if you'd simply told the truth. Reminded people that the world wasn't always as accepting* as it (mostly) is now. It was just way too much, and it did next to nothing for the plot, so it was pointless. :-/
