Welcome back to your weekly Pop Culture Fix, with an extra special shout-out to Natalie who’s keeping Autostraddle running while we’re all off at A-Camp!
+ Nahnatchka Khan’s new Netflix rom-com, Always Be My Maybe, features Michelle Buteau as a married lesbian, did you know? Valerie Anne told me so, so that’s how I know.

+ Variety‘s launched their annual Actors on Actors series that brings together some of your favorite TV actors to talk to each other about their shows. A few of the interviews you can look forward to:
