How to watch Pose in the UK
Seasons one and two are available on BBC iPlayer and Netflix to watch now.
Season three will be released on Sunday, 8th August, on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer, where it will air weekly.
What is Pose about?
Pose gives viewers a perspective into the underground NYC LGBTQ+ ballroom scene during the late 80s and early 90s.
Season one covers the rollout of a brand-new ballroom “house”, House of Evangelista, one member breaking away from the original House of Abundance to kickstart it all. On top of this, a life-changing medical diagnosis, family disowning, body dysmorphia, clashes, and Pose delivers an abundance of drama.
Season two begins with the cast’s life following the release of Madonna’s hit single, “Vogue”. Two lovers of the same House are pit against each other to clinch a spot on the star’s concert tour, revenge is served on a nemesis, and secrets rock the foundation of the breakaway House of Evangelista. Leading us perfectly to season three…
Mj Rodriguez (The Carrie Diaries) plays House head, Blanca Evangelista, who creates the eponymous, House of Evangelista. For Blanca to establish her own legacy, she had to depart from Dominique Jackson (Strut), the veteran ballroom identity Elektra. Indya Moore (Saturday Church) acts as emotionally wrought model and former escort Angel Evangelista. Angel Bismark Curiel (American Adrift) stars as Esteban Evangelista (AKA Lil Papi), the fictionally portrayed Angel’s unswerving fiancée.
Ryan Jamaal Swain (his first screen role) stars as espoused son Damon Evangelista with Dyllón Burnside (Peter Pan Live!), playing his lover, Ricky Evangelista.
Billy Porter (Law and Order) plays emcee of ballrooms Pray Tell with Hailie Sahar (Mr Robot) also starring as rival House dancer Lulu Ferocity to round out the main cast.
And season three will only see one new member in the supporting cast in the form of Jeremy Pope (Hollywood) playing Christopher.
