Hello and good day good and perfect people. Are you enjoying this Midsummer's Eve? Or Noche de San Juan? Or whatever you call it? I'm celebrating by going bowling and eating cookies. This week, we travelled back through more herstory with Carolyn's interview with Ann Bannon, Queer symbols, Vanessa's visit to the Lesbian Herstory Archives and the very lesbian life of Miss Ann Lister. In Pride news, we had 50 photos of gay ladies getting married, a list of gay movies you want to see this week and Lizz's picks for pride fashion. Carolyn stayed cool while getting baked with summer rolls and Gabby and her friend Mari made the very first televisionary get baked ever with empanadas. We got a New Orleans city guide, had the weekly music fix from Ericka, checked out the sneaker feature b sides with Gabby and learned how to live the broke life with Carmen. If you're looking to join our team, we're looking for you, so send us your stuff!
The I Think That's Called Being An Overzealous Child Award to Liz: "I gave my barbies alternative lifestyle haircuts long before alternative lifestyle haircuts were a thing. Look at that fucking (5-year-old) hipster."
The Yours Too? Award to Tarzan: "My barbies were pretty much just naked and having sex all the time, honestly."
The Who's Adam Carolla Award to birobot: "Wait, dudes are jacking the comment to defend Adam Carolla like he’s still relevant or something? Quick, tell me what year it is? Is it 1999? Did I just time travel? Do I need a pay phone to try and call home?"
The Science. Award to Heather: "'There seem to be mixed accounts of whether the tampon was used as a feminine product before or after its use on the battlefield.' oh that tampon survival guide is genius."
The Tale As Old As Time Award to Carolyne: "All I can think of is Belle walking into the library the Beast gave her only this is way better."
The This Is The Way That We Live Award to L: "Your girlfriend leaves you to marry a dude and then you get an STD from him? Damn. Based on this and the Vita Sackville-West article it seems like The Real L Word is filming in the wrong century."
The Loves Award to Abbey: "I was out of my mind.
She was in.
We married as soon as we could."
