I’ve missed you all!
Guess what, tonight is nacho night, and I am so excited!! What are you getting into?
Queer as in F*ck You
Dysphoria is real fucking hard. It’s hard for those of us who didn’t grow up in front of a camera and the face of the Disney Channel for an entire generation of people — so I cannot even begin to imagine. I don’t have anything to add, other than all my love to Dove Cameron. (There seems to be other passages that were maybe edited out the post as today went on.) ❤️
I’m currently obsessed with one thing, and that is the Queer as Folk Reboot Trailer. (I still don’t know if I agree with the Pulse-like storyline decision, warning for those who watch the trailer, but I was sold by the end)
Ok I know this is symbolic more than anything, but I don’t care — it’s great!! Audre Lorde, my actual personal hero, is getting her own street in New York!!! A Celebration of Audre Lorde Way
Eileen Myles Watches Over an Ever-Changing New York. “Now guarding trees in Lower Manhattan, the poet and author of ‘Chelsea Girls’ says: ‘Things that might have once been corny to me don’t feel corny anymore.'”
Saw This, Thought of You
EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL PLAY, FUCK YES. USWNT, MNT Get Equal WC Money in New CBAs. “The unions for the USWNT and USMNT have ratified new CBAs with the U.S. Soccer Federation that include an equal split of World Cup bonuses.”
Ummm… excuse me!?!?
“Autostraddle’s SLICK Series
Autostraddle is the world’s most influential independent website for queer women and nonbinary people, and it’s 100% owned and run by queer women. In addition to its editorial content about all things sex and relationships, the site features its very own erotica series SLICK. Every SLICK story is written and edited by queer people, and the stories promise “titillation, torture, fucking, and getting off,” according to the website.
In order to read SLICK stories, you need to be a member of Autostraddle’s A+ membership club. It costs $4 a month, and for that price you get access to all the A+ content on the site—not just the erotica—such as advice columns, personal essays about a wide plethora of lesbian and queer issues, and discount codes.”
11 Places To Find Extremely Hot Erotica Made Specifically For Women, thank you to the A+ member who shouted us out in this piece!! I ferociously believe in erotica for women and queer folks. Yall go read some!
