Here’s your final link round-up of the week, friends. I hope you’re staying as hydrated as you can out there. It’s been a week.
Queer as in F*ck You
+ How lesbians in their 40s, 50s, and 60s are finding a sense of belonging in football. I love this story so much: “Football is a great tool to connect people, get in touch with old friends and have fun. That perhaps is not telling you anything new but it is what MissKix experience in their weekly training sessions. The team based in Brighton is predominantly composed of lesbian women in their 40s, 50s and 60s, who are finally fulfilling their dreams of being part of a club.”
+ Ignored in life, Bernice Bing is being discovered as museums rewrite history. “She was an Asian American woman, a lesbian and a community activist. Bernice Bing, whose intense abstract expressionist paintings fused Eastern and Western techniques, had a lot going against her in the eyes of museum curators. For decades, she and her peers were almost invisible. Nearly a quarter century after her death in 1998, Bing is being celebrated by the Asian Art Museum, which, like other museums in her lifetime, excluded most Asian Americans artists.”
Saw This, Thought of You
+ Black Girl Nerds is counting down the days until Wakanda Forever and they’ve got the coolest piece up on the Dora Milaje’s combat, from costuming to choreography.
+ When a houseplant obsession becomes a nightmare. I seriously thought this cactus was going to literally eat someone in this piece!
