Pose (the series) presented by Irene (@all_about_english_with_irene)

It's time strike a pose!

Well, perhaps not, but let's just continue on this.

This episode is really not about posing for a photo, but it could be.

Irene from @all_about_english_with_irene from Costa Rica talks to us about a TV series called Pose. It gives us a lot of insight into transgender people, which is very stigmatised

Pose is based in the late 80s and early 90s in New York City, the 'Big Apple'. The series focuses on the LGBTQIA+ and people of Afro-American heritage and other heritages at that time.

In her home country of Costa Rica, this series was welcomed very much by all communities. Nevertheless, unfortunately, there are certain things that still need to be changed.

The Spotify playlist for this series goes through the who's who of the late 80s and 90s music scene.

In terms of English learning, you should be of a B1+ level, due to the language which is being used from the late 80s and early 90s. Words such as 'house' – is used to talk about a chosen family.

So how about striking a pose and make sure you come and listen to this episode, as well as watching this episode.
