+ You thought Pride was over? Think again! Every queer nerd’s favorite nerd, Ashly Burch, confirmed her sexuality on Friday. Maybe you know her as Rachel from Mythic Quest, or her guest appearances on Critical Role, or Mel from The Last of Us, or Parvati from The Outer Worlds, or Chloe from Life Is Strange, or Aloy from Horizon: Zero Dawn/Forbidden West. However you know her, it’s probably queer, and now she openly is too!
Hi! So, I'm queer. One of those old fashioned pansexuals you may have heard of. Probably not a shocker — like half the characters I play are members of the rainbow fam. 🧵:

+ British Vogue’s August 2022 cover is a celebration of Pride, featuring 12 LGBTQ+ celebs, including Cynthia Erivo! That’s a big deal! Carmen says it’s not that far from the interview Erivo gave The Evening Standard a few years back — so it’s not NEW news, but it’s still GOOD news!
+ Brandi Carlile is back at it, and by “it,” I mean “making queer videos about her queer music that’ll make you cry!”
