Laneia’s Team Pick: International Obscura Day

Hello weirdos. According to Atlas Obscura, today is International Obscura Day, which means you need to pack a lunch or an afternoon snack and leave your house in search of local weirdness and wonder. Actual events are being held in Brooklyn, San Francisco, Vancouver and like, 77 other cities (but not Phoenix, in case you were wondering)!

Is your town hosting an event? I don’t know — go look! Even if it’s not, you should probably still go find something weird to be a part of. One-person kazoo parades down Main Street are always fun.


Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. And A+ members keep the majority of our site free for everyone. Still, 99.9% of our readers are not members. A+ membership starts at just $4/month. If you're able to, will you join A+ and keep Autostraddle here and working for everyone?

Laneia is the Executive Editor and founding member of Autostraddle, and you're the reason she's here.

Laneia has written 914 articles for us.
