Welcome to the second annual IT’S GREAT TO BE GAY DAY, an international holiday we invented… well, because we can. And also because EVERY SINGLE EFFING DAY!! is A GREAT DAY TO BE GAY! Here’s 20+ lesbian, bisexual, queer, trans, and non-binary humans telling you why the heck we love being exactly who we are.
Y’all aren’t f*cking around — we’re almost to our goal! Also, you wrote some VERY cute tweets that we would like to review with the whole group.
“Marry me so we can live in a tiny house!”
Look at all the cool things you could buy during our last fundraiser of 2020! Get your holigay shopping done early! Tell a friend!
Hi hello fellow gays and queers, lesbians and bisexuals; it is Monday and look where we are! $53,713 of the way to our goal. That’s 45% in six days, people.
“James is a great man who let Bette Porter yell at him all the time and never complained. He was Bette’s most loyal bottom.”
You may have noticed we just launched our second 2020 fundraiser. This is exciting news for a lot of you, but we recognize that it also might be an alarming or even annoying announcement to others. So we wanna answer some questions about our fundraising that we’ve gotten in the past, and just dig into what we’re doing and why.
Autostraddle leadership will your questions live (virtually) with our voices and faces! Ask about the vision, the fundraiser, what we’re planning, our favorite cookies — we want to hear from you and then talk to you through a screen!
If you’re asking “why fundraise now?” the answer is twofold.
The heart of my new vision for Autostraddle is pretty simple: make more space for lesbians and queer people — especially people of color — to be our entire selves and to be known for the multi-dimensional ways we move in the world. We are the ultimate authority on our culture, who we are and how we live. This is a home for us.
“There’s no way a straight person could yearn like Taylor Swift does.”
“I too am in ‘active negotiations’ to include LGBT content in my holidays – by setting up an OkCupid profile.”
“I wish I were a Magnificent Melissa, but if we’re being honest, I’m at BEST a Smiling Rob.”
Happy anniversary, babes; we wouldn’t want to do this with anyone else.
A place to hang, chat, reminisce, scheme, ponder, work together, dream, exist.
“How can I become a member of the Wubble? Just curious.”
Tell us how you really feel!
“How many people are in bed with Janelle Monáe?!”
What’s up with you today? How’s your heart?
On Sunday June 28, the anniversary of the start of the Stonewall Riots, we threw a little digital shindig to celebrate Pride as an uprising and to raise money for Women for Political Change in Minneapolis. We’re giving A+ Members access even if they couldn’t make the live show because they’re the best, so if you sign up now, you just have to await the weekly A+ E-News for details!
It’s the last Friday in June! We’ve had a big exciting week here at Autostraddle! We’re hosting a virtual benefit on Sunday! Let’s talk about everything!
