05. Anne Bonny (Season One)

Welcome to Hoist the Colours, a Black Sails podcast with an LGBTQ lens. This episode focuses on Anne Bonny and her season one character arc.

Laura leads the discussion with a few questions: How is the audience meant to define the relationship between Jack and Anne: are they family, lovers, partners? How is the viewer meant to read Anne's sexuality/identity? Talking points include: the Jack/Anne relationship, Black Sails' representation of queer feminine desire versus the male gaze, Anne's internalized misogyny, and her role in Max's season one plot.
