Queer as in F*ck You
Ok so down with corporate Pride. You don’t have to convince me, but ok. Just ok. Hear me out —
Speaking of corporate Pride! We got this message from the folks at GoFundMe and Vanessa wanted to make sure you didn’t miss out:
“GoFundMe is supporting and celebrating Pride by making it easy to donate directly to the LGBTQ+ community and people working to create a more inclusive world. Verified fundraisers that support everything from gender-affirming care to local organizations focused on LGBTQ+ youth can be found at www.gofundme.com/lgbtq“
I don’t always include press release info like this, but I appreciate GoFundMe knowing that queer and trans people are often, well, sharing GoFundMe’s as a means of survival. Talk about knowing your market.

A reporter at the Uvalde Leader-News lost her daughter in the shooting at Robb Elementary School. She asked the publisher if she could write the obituary.
This is really thoughtful (much more so than the headline implies, to be honest) and smart, but it’s also really difficult. It’s a story about how we tell stories, if that makes sense. Excellent journalism that’s about journalism. From Sandy Hook to Uvalde, the Violent Images Never Seen
