It teases. It taunts. And a new trailer for the upcoming Netflix series The Get Down definitely aims to pique our interest.

In a new clip from Baz Lurhmann’s belabored series, Jaden Smith plays Marcus Kipling, a young man taking his first tenuous steps in a gay bar.

As always happens the first time anyone walks nervously into a gay bar, the ideal ’70s jock — Thor, played by Noah Le Gros — shyly comes up to Jaden, peering seductively through touseled tresses before mustering up the courage to lock tremulous lips with the young man.

The music swells, and, as almost always happens in situations such as these, it’s Christina Aguilera — a new track called “Telepathy.”

Times have changed at lightning speed: Jaden has managed to one-up his father Will Smith, who confessed to Entertainment Weekly that he had to use a stunt double in order to shoot a fleeting kiss with Anthony Michael Hall in 1993’s Six Degrees of Separation:

It was very immature on my part. I was thinking, ‘How are my friends in Philly going to think about this?’ I wasn’t emotionally stable enough to artistically commit to that aspect of the film. In a movie with actors and a director and writer of this caliber, for me to be the one bringing something cheesy to it…. This was a valuable lesson for me. Either you do it or you don’t.”

This sort of thing was supposed to have ended when marriage equality was legalized, but apparently it’s a reality that queer couples must still face: when a partner dies, evil family members swooping in to seize the couple’s possessions with no regard for their decades-long relationship. It used to be far more common. Without legal marriage equality, most LGBT couples had [...]
