I had moved there for a job opportunity, naively confident I, as an openly queer person with a mental illness, could flit across the globe like a moth.

The party don’t stop ’cause the World Cup is over.
I’m not saying this summer will necessarily be a Summer of Breakups again — although it’s true there are two eclipses in Cancer season this year, yikes — but if you do find yourself suddenly among our number, I and many others are here to tell you that some semblance of a love life does exist on the other side of breakups, even if it doesn’t feel like it right now.
