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!

“The entire concept of a warrior nun is queer – if there’s no rainbow content, I’m gonna fight someone.”
Between canceling corporate parades and parties because of coronavirus and showing up for Black Lives Matter marches, demonstrations, and direct actions, June feels a little different this year – in a really good way. Here’s how y’all are celebrating Pride Month in 2020.
This is your Friday open thread for June 12!
What is the flavor of your grief? What has given you a boost, made your day, rubbed you all the wrong ways or is making you ask new questions? Black, Indigenous, and other people of color: what’s caught in your head?
There is so much to feel. There is so much to be done. What are you doing, today, tomorrow, the next day, and the next?
“When life gives you Leonards, make Leonard-ade.”
Embarrassing stories, sexy stories, funny stories, wholesome stories – we want ’em all!
You said you missed the Friday Open Threads, so we’re bringing them back!
Shelter In Our Place 2 launches on Monday and we can’t wait to see you there.

“Can’t wait to see who else’s subconscious is ALSO going through a Rolodex of their exes!”
We’re entering month 567 of a global pandemic, and you may be having some weird sex dreams! Here at autostraddle dot com, we’d love to hear about them in a respectful manner, for journalism.
“Magic Wand as mic is always SO GOOD.”
“P.S. I’d hoped the picture I submitted would be with my neighborhood turkey that I’ve enjoyed searching for on my daily walk…”
“Could you not have shipped out some PPE before we read this article? I just spit out my tea laughing, and probably infected the tomato plants.”
I hope you sit for a moment and know that you gifted us — and so many other people — with a serious dose of hope. You are making sustainable, community-supported independent queer media possible.
