Happy Sunday Funday to Laverne Cox, Who Can Make a Sundae Funday with OINTB-Inspired Ice Cream

Hello, I love you, won’t you look at these photos of Eli and I at a gala.

Laverne Cox is Having an Actual Sundae Funday

Ahem. I would like a waffle cone packed with “Laverne Cox’s Chocolate Orange is the New Black” flavored ice cream, STAT.


Laverne Cox is the first openly transgender person to have been nominated for an Emmy, recently had a Madame Tussaud’s wax figure made in her likeness and now she has her very own ice cream flavor. Three Twins Ice Cream, a California-based, organic ice cream company, created limited edition flavors to celebrate Pride Month, and one of them was inspired by the Orange is the New Black actress. The new flavor is called “Laverne Cox’s Chocolate Orange is the New Black” and is described as a “chocolate orange confetti.”

This Gay Yard is Only Getting Gayer

Julie Baker’s neighbor didn’t appreciate her rainbow lights. In response, she’s decided to up her ante and make her yard as gay as fucking possible. I demand that we all support her in this, because mason jars are important.


OITNB Mini-Fix

+ Oh, also. Daily reminder: Norma from OITNB used to front a punk band. Let’s all just live our fucking dreams, people.

Just Because I Like This

Saw this, thought of you.


This Hero Cat Saved a Kid’s Life

Tara saved a kid who was being attacked by a dog and we can’t really talk about it because I’m a dog person but I thought you’d appreciate it as cat people and IDK.

  1. Carmen, you and Eli at the Bark Ball made me so fucking happy. that was the most important picture of the month probably

    • “If we go high enough, I will see if I can get a Rainbow Roof!” OMG – I never knew that those necco candy roofs on the gingerbread houses I made as a child were relentlessly gay! It all makes sense now!

  2. ‘Pink because she’s sexy and Angelina Jolie because she’s sexy and interesting’

    …Ruby was a bit harsh on Pink there.
