I’m tired. I have one more piece to edit tonight and one more to write, so keep some good thoughts for me!
Queer as in F*ck You
Pride Has Always Been A Glorious Mess. Say that again!
It’s not every day that Autostraddle gets a link back in the New York Times, but when it happens you sure can bet I’m gonna include it in this round up — The Lesbian Avengers Will Not Be Commodified (At Least, Not by the Gap), which of course references the piece of reporting I’m most proud of us publishing this month: What Really Happened With The Gap Lesbian Avengers Pride T-Shirt by our Community Editor Vanessa Friedman
Oh you want some more Lesbian Avengers this Pride because of course the fuck you do, how about An Oral History of the Lesbian Avengers over at The Cut, which includes this very real gem of a line “I also think the internal fucking fucked the Lesbian Avengers.” Highly relatable content for anyone who has their own dyke drama.
Also(also.also): Pride Merch Won’t Save Trans Youth
There’s a new queer Astrology/Tarot podcast “Sitting With The Stars” that quite a few members on our team are excited about, hosted by Rachel Relman and Aunty Chan
