A+ Members Get 20% Off Autostraddle Merch — Including All New Designs!

From those conversations we were inspired to turn the phrase "GAY CHAOS" from Surabhi into a pair of amazing socks and a gorgeous sticker. We also created The Lazy Femmes tee — which came out of a conversation about how queer merch kinda feels like band tees sometimes. And finally Snails, who tie-dyed their own Who All's Gay Here tee, which inspired our very own tie-dyed version. Here are some of the conversations we had with you below:
