“It is time we remind the world who we are,” the contraction-agnostic Elektra told her underlings, a small tribe of catwalkers embedded in New York’s queer ball scene in 1987. But in “Pose,” reminding the world of your true self comes with as much risk as it does reward. As it turns out, “Pose” is a show about desire ― the desire to find comfort and a voice, to look and to be seen. There’s nothing subtle about the ball scene, so maybe it makes sense that nothing else is subtle either. Both Elektra and Stan are rejected by their lovers, but only Elektra can really pick herself up.
