In The Last of Us’s zombie hellscape, same-sex love is no big deal – now for the real world | Owen Jones

Of all the places to find a heartening queer love story: the apocalypse. This TV series is a major cultural milestone

Love finds many expressions, but its sole certainty is that it always ends. This inescapable reality underpins much of human culture: what is most art, music, theatre, cinema and television other than an attempt to grapple with the emotional turmoil that results?
