Catch me in Toulouse using too much data

Brittani Nichols is in France, wandering around castles and eating baguettes and smirking at people in berets, and all of it is delightful.

My favorite part of this year’s World Pride was standing in the back of Autostraddle’s all ages pride party with our very own Heather Hogan, having profound social anxiety together and speaking to no one.

Did Gaby Dunn solicit A-Campers looking for an Instagram boyfriend to document her every move? Maybe. Did she borrow a basketball specifically for the opportunity to look sporty for the queer internet? Almost definitely.

It is with profound reverence and complete gratitude that I pay tribute to the ones who have sacrificed their own health and safety or even given their lives just for me to be able to live mine to the very fullest. #HAPPYPRIDE #50yearsofpride #nofilteronmypride . LET US NEVER FORGET THAT WE ARE OUR LGBTQ+ ANCESTORS’ WILDEST DREAMS. . . 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

This is Samira Wiley’s final form. This is actually the final form of all of our people; we can go home now, Pride has been achieved.

I just finished Tales of the City and I am delighted to see all the cast members having such a genuinely nice time together, even if [redacted] is among them.

ELLEN PAGE AND EMMA PORTNER GOT A NEW DOG. Mo seems nice and all but WHERE. IS. PATTERS?!?!@!? Zosia Mamet has helpfully posted the possibly passive-aggressive comment, “omg you got a second?!?!” which, well, yeah.

  1. I’ve never understood the impulse to beg someone to run over you with like a tractor until my eyes beheld this photograph of Jen Richards.

      Thanks, Stef!

  2. Didn’t Ellen and Emma just move to NYC (and thus away from Patters)? I guess they wanted a puppy on every coast…
