This season (and last night especially) Empire has failed its lesbian and bisexual female characters. Here’s how (and how it can fix it).

Fox TV’s Empire, created by Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, is the hit TV show about a hip hop mogul, his family, and the future of his business. The show stars Terrence Howard as Lucious Lyon, a former drug dealer-turned-rapper-turned-record label CEO, who’s desperately trying to hold it all together after recently being diagnosed with ALS and given three years to live. Now we know that so far it sounds pretty dramatic – and it is! Why else would we devote a good chunk of our website to the show? Love, love, love it.
