Lesbian Request Approved: Win Tickets to Your Local Orange is the New Black Lezathon!

I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but um, Orange is the New Black comes back this weekend. And what better way to ring in the occasion than marathoning the entire hot mess with a bunch of queer chicks? This is where HER, The Lesbian App On Your Home Screen, comes in. They’re hosting six OITNB Lezathons across the country – and they’re gonna give one lucky Autostraddle reader a pair of tickets to the event of their choice!


You’re not hallucinating. This is not a drill. I am dead-ass serious when I say that if you live in, around, near, or within traveling distance of Chicago, Los Angeles, London, New York, or San Francisco, you could spend this weekend surrounded by hundreds of lesbians armed with tequila and probably their favorite homemade OITNB votive candles. There will be prizes, snacks, and I’m assuming a lot of camaraderie and shared sighs of longing. It’s gonna be so much better than my plan to watch the new season all at once in bed without moving! It’s gonna be the BEST!

How To Win A Pair of Tickets to an OITNB Screening Party

In order to win two tickets to a lezathon of your choice, simply comment on this post with your chosen city (Chicago, Los Angeles, London, New York, or San Francisco) and your fave Orange Is The New Black GIF! We’ll select a winner TOMORROW and will announce it right here before we go to bed, so keep your eyes glued to this screen!

If you’re so into the idea that waiting one more instant to snag a seat makes you feel like you’re going to explode, have no fear! You can buy presale tickets via the links in this here post and support a local LGBT charity in the process. Folks who buy tickets also get discount tickets to pride after-parties in their city! This is like, a QUINTUPLE WIN. Remember that movie, Quints? That was a weird fucking movie.

OKAY. Let’s do this thing, y’all. Get GIF-in’!

  1. Hello, I am in New York, and I think this is my favorite OITNB gif? She’s so surprised.

  2. I can’t go to any of these things and I hope my comment doesn’t interfere with the process but I just wanted to say that I’m so excited to bask in the OITNB glory that will soon be unfolding in this comment section.

  3. Wait, London? Actual UK, not Canadian, London? There are gay women in London!? Who will binge OITNB with me? SIGN ME UP LONDON LONDON LONDON
    *cancels ticket to NY and plans to commit a moderately bad crime*

  4. Chicago – am I doing this right? I’m better at lesbianing than posting gifs…

  5. Chicagoland gal-pals! Get excited. If you click attending on the official event and share it with your friends, you’ll be entered in for a chance to win a pair of passes to the Backlot Bash weekend!

  6. Random attempt but if that didn’t work:

    I don’t need the tickets, but I do love that line, “Accent a droite, bitch.”

    • I didn’t realize just how freaking sexy winking is until this past Camp. More cute queers need to get on that!

    • My person has winked at me like that for five years…damn the ones who pull it off ~pitter pat pitter pat~

  7. Los Angeles!!!
    Shout out to all of my Lesbians/Queers who struggle through intersectionalities and find accurate representation in OITNB!!! :D

  8. I live in Los Angeles, and I’ve never embedded a gif in a comment before, but here it goes?!

    • gimme a gif and i can totally enter you and that means this’ll be like, the comment you never forget ever because it might change your entire life!

  9. No Sophia?

    No city to name because I’m from another country, the commute could take some time

  10. Ah, man. This would have been a cool event to attend in L.A. but due to work, I am unable to make it. Good luck to you all!

  11. update: it was fun! they only showed two episodes before it became just-a-bar again, so it was not much of an -athon.
    While I was there, I won a trivia question (I’m on a spree!) and got a special “Taystee Poussey” shot (tequila and pineapple juice), which was, as promised, tasty.
