Between Autostraddle’s GLAAD nomination, Jodie Foster finally coming out and the premiere of Tegan and Sara’s new song, it’s been a big week in lesboland, hasn’t it? This also marks the week I started watching Pretty Little Liars and decided my future may involve living in a pillow fort + furiously writing Emily-centric fanfiction… but I digress.
We made Magnolia’s famously delicious banana pudding, added Madison to our queer travel list and talked about flogging. Fonseca spoke about the slower pace of the south, Julia talked to queer theater staple Maggie Keenen-Bolger and Morgan interviewed Kings, a queerific Brooklyn band.
Now onto the main event…
