In this world, Nat and Bert are women with their own unique flaws and strengths that have nothing to do with the fact that they are queer. They argue and they kiss and they laugh and they care very deeply about each other, all while trying to save the day in a life or death situation.
This isn’t just gonna be another post about, like, Apple Watches. I know y’all already know about those.
We’ve got not one, not two, but three images of Harley and Ivy kissing in this article!
“Middle-earth’s got 99 problems, and mountains are basically 98 of them.”
“I like to describe Hi-Fi Fight Club as equal parts Empire Records, Sailor Moon and The Baby-Sitters Club. I think there’s some D.E.B.S., Scott Pilgrim, Josie and the Pussycats and Lumberjanes in there as well.”
Each party member has different strengths (like big, powerful demon dreamboat Jodariel can wreck opponents but is very slow, or sweet; nervous doggo Rukey is fast as heck but not great on defense).
Dream Daddy is the game where you can not only be your own Daddy, you can date the Daddy of your dreams as well. This game was made for me.
“Some people don’t like how many queer characters or NPCs are in our campaign, or when either of the women on the show talk too much. Anyone feminine in our society is still expected to be quiet, subservient, and apologetic. Of course I’m not going to make myself or my character more palatable for anyone else’ sake.”

Kiki doesn’t think it’s weird to go to a dance with a non-binary person; this is just normal life for these teens. Plus, Stevonnie gets to play with fashion in a way we haven’t see on the show, with a wonderful mix of androgynous, feminine and masculine clothes.
Fanny packs by Tumblr fandom because that’s how my brain works apparently!
It’s about queer identity and finding happiness and purpose in life and living for yourself not for others and yes, loneliness. It’s a coming of age story, but for twenty-somethings dealing with struggles of identity, sexuality and mental health.
In We’re Still Here, there are fifty-five different stories, all with different trans creators or creative teams. There’s no set genre for these comics, so there’s everything from slice-of-life to visual essays to sci-fi to nonfiction.
This is the opposite of the games I usually play and it is a very welcome break. There is no plot. I AM the plot.
“It’s a really queer book. And don’t worry! We’re going to take good care of your spooky babies, even when the going gets rough in the story. They’re in good, safe hands.”
Happy Canonically Bisexual Stars and Stripes Day!
It’s been a pleasure writing your technology column for the past half a decade. Keep it nerdy, queermos.
It doesn’t look like Marvel will really going to be adding a lot of movies starring women or poc to their upcoming schedule any time soon.
