Community Scrapbook: These Are Photos of Your Smiling, Brunchtastic Faces

Remember last month when we all got together for brunch? It was so great. I, myself, found it to be possibly the best morning of my entire summer, and also the best afternoon, and I wasn’t alone in that because the moment was shared with about a zillion queermos from Australia to Canada to the US and the UK who came together to enjoy uproarious laughter, a champagne buzz, and possibly a delicious platter of tater tots with each other.

To keep the good times at the forefront of your mind, I’ve compiled a gallery of your adorable brunch photos and amazing-looking brunch food shots that will make sure these days live forever in whatever the opposite of infamy is. If yours are missing, email ’em to carmen [at] autostraddle [dot] com and you might be able to twist my arm into adding ’em for you. Or just post ’em in the comments! And thanks to everyone who submitted.

‘Til next time!

    • I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, thanks for organising all the London things.

      My face looks way happier in this years photos, success!

    • Thanks for organising it Hattie! Glad to see there is photographic documentation of our main brunch activity: Ally and Mel trapping wasps under mugs.

  1. Thanks to all of the babes that came out to my Philly meet up! Ya’ll, I feel like a celesbian being on the front page of AS ;D

  2. OMG there’s me!! Had the best time at the brunch in Sydney, Australia. Met some fantastic ladies. Thank you Dina and Desiree for organising our meet!

  3. I have never met another autostraddler (that I know of) and am very very shy when it comes to these things, but looking through the pictures gave me a flash of a daydream/vision/thing of me standing by a table with a bunch of humans having a good hair day and saying, “Excuse me, but is this the A-brunch?”

    So thanks for that. Because it kind of sounds like the breakfast of the A-team aka breakfast of champions. and I’m always up for a breakfast of champions, even make-believe ones.
