Hi guess what! I’m sitting at Riese’s dining room table SURROUNDED BY QUEER WOMEN. They’re everywhere, all four of them, and they’re all wearing Autostraddle merch. GAY.
It’s our yearly Senior Editor Retreat and we’re just sitting around talking about you and what you mean to us. (It’s a lot.) Yesterday, on the flight from Phoenix to Detroit, I watched Logan and listen, that was a gruesome yet spiritually uplifting film. That’s mostly unrelated to this retreat but I wanted to make sure I shared my feelings about Laura and her slashing skills, of which I had several, all positive.
We’re having a curry for dinner and I wish you were here!
Queer as in F*ck You
If white lesbians searching for affirmation had Melissa Etheridge openly singing for another woman to “come to her window,” K.D Lang in a suit getting a shave from bikini clad Cindy Crawford on the cover of Vanity Fair or maybe 4 Non Blondes running around the bay area in plaid and top hats, we had no one.
Or, no one who wanted to claim us, anyway.

+ The Stranger‘s Queer Issue 2017 is good and cool and you will not regret it.
