Emily’s Team Pick

I stumbled upon this website and thought it was kind of a nice idea even though the background hurts my eyes. It starts with “Did you know that some of the most amazing people in history were gay?” and I was hooked, basically. Despite being wildly incomplete it’s still kind of fun to poke around and have some positive encouragement. So here it is, gayheroes.com.


Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.
