Listen, even if you don’t believe you’re a person who is capable of Hot Takes, as a queer person in this current political climate, you are an actual hot take.
Happy weekend, babes. Let’s hang out and tell secrets and eat popcorn!
“What if my pet is a sourdough starter named Sue Perkins?”
Your next Queer IRL gallery is you + your pets and I think that’s literally all you’ve ever wanted?? AND I’M SO HAPPY!
People had such a great time (I included) at the beach days, so why not have more events to meet people in the LBTQ community. This time it will be at a park to give those who could not make it to the beach days to come.
It will be POTLUCK style where someone brings something to share(like last time). Please keep in mind there may be vegan & gluten free people who go to these events. So, not all the food has to be vegan or gluten free friendly but preferred that some of it be. Also, if you bring alcohol make sure it’s covered and in non-clear cups, don’t want people to get in trouble. Also charcoal would be nice for the BBQ pits st the park. Most importantly this is safe & consent space, so feel free to wear however you feel comfortable wearing.
Exact location of which pit(s) I will be announced day of the event as its a first come first serve basis. It’s at Echo Park so it is public transit accessible, but there should be park parking for those who drive/carpool.
Feedback is always welcome.
DO NOT use genitalia as a champagne flute.
How has college been treating you so far? And if you’re not in college how does September feel to you? Is it just like any other time of year?
A meditation circle in the park for the spiritual, starseed, bruja, spiritually questioning, those who just want to meditate, and everything inbetween. We will smudge the patriarchy away, meditate, and then discuss. Bring your yoga mat or meditation cusion and whatever you would like to place on the altar. There will be a discussion afterwards so the circle will dissipate when everyone leaves.
What’s got you feeling nostalgic for the days of yore lately? Get in here and tell us about it!
“I had a friend once describe this movie as ‘a sexual harassment lawsuit with the cinematography of a Hallmark commercial’ and looking at the weirdly lit screen shots, I’d say that sounds pretty apt.”
It’s you and like 85 of your closest Autostraddle friends posing with your favorite books! Get in here!
What happens when you stop asking “what now?” and start answering it? Also what are you up to this long weekend? Let’s hang out!
“Glad to see my initial horror at being sent from Autostraddle to an article titled “Murderer Fingered By Parrot” was at least partially misplaced.”
Be the safe space you want to see in this world with this tiny but mighty enamel pin!
“Are they dancing? Are they grappling? Are they whispering secrets in each others’ ears? I am not familiar with this approach to therapy.”
Are you ready for autumn and all its lattes?
We can do this. I mean we can probably do this. I mean get in here and let’s do this together.
I don’t know what to do with this week, so get in here and laugh with me.

Are you turning into your mom this week? Did you also have to give your cat some Xanax in order to have a happy home? Did you see that full moon in Aquarius??? She was so beautiful.
