Kehlani joins The L Word: Generation Q and fans can’t handle it: ‘Boss level gay’

Kehlani is adding actor to their resume as they join season three of The L Word: Generation Q.

TV network Showtime revived the ground-breaking series The L Word in 2019, with sequel series Generation Q taking place 10 years after the original finale.

The reboot follows characters played by Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moennig, and Leisha Hailey as they navigate love, life and their careers – and now, the talented cast has a new addition.

Kehlani shared the exciting news in a post on their Instagram on Wednesday (27 July).

“From binging [The L Word] to guest starring… See you for Season 3!” Kehlani gushed.

Fans took to Kehlani’s comment to congratulate them.

“New LWORD character ? unlocked” one fan said.

Musician Syd joined in, adding: “UGHHHH HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE LIVING MY DREAM???”

“I believe you’ve now reached boss level gay. This is very AWESOME! good for you. I can’t wait to watch it.”
Kehlani famously shared a video of themselves watching The L Word for the first time in 2021, documenting their new-found obsessed.
The star quickly declared their interest in being a part of the series, writing: “I would just like to say…I would like to be a part of [The L Word] in some way shape or form,” adding: “C’mon, call me zaddy.”


Kehlani came out as a lesbian in April 2021, having previously described themself as queer.

“I’m just going to f**king say it, because everyone keeps bringing it up today… Well, it’s f**king true. I am gay, g-gay, gay, gay,” they announced in a TikTok video.

The singer describes themself as being “on the non-binary scale”, and uses they/she pronouns.

“I don’t mind when people say ‘she’ at all, but something feels really affirming when people say ‘they.’ It feels like… you really see me,” Kehlani said in December 2021.

The L Word: Generation Q Season 3 is expected to premiere late 2022.
