+ Saying Goodbye to AfterEllen, and a Generation of Queer Women’s Media.

AfterEllen has a whole vertical dedicated specifically to Kristen Stewart. A whole vertical.

Autostraddle noticed that there was a lesbian (one, single lesbian) in the Jon Benet Ramsey documentary. Who else noticed that? Why would non-queer people care?

Heather Dockray gets it.
