If Women’s Magazine Covers Were Aimed at Queer Women, Pt. 3

Welcome back to covers of JKLAFGHD Mag, the Magazine for Women Who Aren’t Straight. Every so often we check in here to catch up on the latest not-straight trends, get updates on the not-straight classics, and check in with our favorite not-straight celebrities. Up next in our January through March issues are Hannah Hart, a carabiner and Sara Ramirez.

January: Hannah Hart

February: A Carabiner

  1. I hope my elderly neighbors think I’m ok after all the shrieking laughter – I’m ordinarily more sedate before I’ve had my morning tea! Believe me, I needed that.

    I also want to give a special shout-out to the carabiner cover photo and thumb rings article. Reminds me of when my wife and I first met ? ❤️

  2. but seriously, why do men pop up in my tinder feed when it’s set to women only?
    also, yes to carabiners. i just started wearing my keys on a carabiner on my belt loop and i feel like a gay pied piper. you can hear me jingling from a mile away.

    • I just recently switched settings on tinder a very small portion of these people may just be trans, for ex; trans woman, trans masculine, genderqueer person(like myself), or even trans men who feel more comfortable not dealing with women who more than likely are cishet where the likely-hood of transphobia could be higher.

      Most though are either couples looking for a unicorn, or men trying to get with a not-straight woman. I’m in SoCal & probably swiped no to at least 50 unicorn searchers who are m/f paring(including a trans man and his cis gf, lead picture was him shirtless with his gf pointing at his genital area). I was also surprised to find a few nb/f couple and a few f/f couple looking for a unicorn. Sometimes the guy is the lead picture sometimes you don’t find out it a couple until pictures 4-6 and you see unicorn emoji in the profile. Ugh

    • I think the tinder algorithm has some kind of variety in it. I noticed that I’d occasionally be matched with people outside of my distance or age brackets. I was also matched with a friend of a friend who i am 98% sure is straight and 100% sure was using tinder meet guys.

      So i think they show you all the people in your selected categories and then also a few surprises.

  3. All we need now is a Kickstarter campaign to turn this magazine into a reality. As a queer girl who has been paid to grace magazine covers, I donate a few photoshoots and interviews ?

  4. No no no if you can be identified as “ladyperson” by straight people any bag you carry is automatically a purse, no matter what the packaging or label said. It can never actually be a backpack, a satchel, briefcase or bag for your tablet or laptop.
    NOPE it is purse.
    This a FACT.

    • In my experience some of it is cis couple looking for a unicorn. Like I saw three just today where the first pic was a dude. Reading the profile is where it says they are looking for a unicorn. The rest are just men(be it cis or trans) who want to sleep with a queer gal.

  5. Personal favorite “323 things your mother just doesn’t understand why you don’t want to look pretty in.” I get that way more at 26 than I did as a kid/teenager and I’m by no means masculine…just comfortable/lazy femme. And apparently that is offensive to my mother.
