We also covered this yesterday, but Aurielle Marie’s viral TikTok of Lizzo’s dress has been the joy that’s keeping me going, so I have to give an update: Here’s What Happened to the Writer Who Wore Lizzo’s Dress to the 2022 Out100 Party. Aurelle Marie is one of the most important queer voices in writing right now — as seen by their induction to this year’s Out Magazine OUT100 list — and to celebrate their big night, they reached out to Lizza via TikTok to see if they could borrow one of her gowns, specifically the dress fluffy pink dress with a high leg slit that Lizzo wore to the 2019 AMA’s. Well.. with mere minutes to go before Aurelle was set to get on a plane, Lizzo came through. And watching Aurelle move from smiles and shocks to overwhelmed tears? Damn, maybe there is some good in this world after all. To quote Aurielle, “You made my world Lizzo, thank you sis.”

This is a really tough Brittney Griner update, so please read it but also take care (especially if you’re going to click the secondary link inside that describes Russian penal colonies, like the kind BG has been sent to, in detail): Brittney Griner Taken to Penal Colony in Russia’s Mordovia Region

I watched this video yesterday of Ms. Kelendria Rowland reading a man for filth with the sweetest smile on her face and never raising her voice once, then I watched it again another 20 times: Please Don’t Compare Kelly Rowland to Beyoncé
