LGBT Previews For March 2017 Part 1

Getting this done before the country officially goes to hell in 48 hours or so before the country officially starts going to hell seemed compelling for some reason.  Sorry, optimism is not a word that seems realistic now. You’ll find part 2 over here.

People’s names listed in bold are either LGBT+ or supportive. Thanks where thanks is due – Andy Mangels because this was his idea and to Mike McDermott and Steven Leitman for their suggestions and input about several series that have been added to the list!
