QUIZ: Who’s Your Queer Celebrity Dream Date?

On Tuesday Autostraddle turned a whole 12 years old! Simultaneously three hundred years old in gay internet years and a literal tweenager in actual human years!

And yes, this week we are really leaning into the awkwardness of our young adolescence, we’re writing letters to our past selves, we’re hosting a Middle School sleepover style AMA for our A+ members, we’re taking trivia remembering oh so fine 2009… and now!

Do you remember those celebrity dream date quizzes in the back of teen magazines? Well for Autostraddle’s 12th birthday, I decided to queer it up!

(*Yes we tried to set up a game of M.A.S.H. for y’all, but our technology hasn’t caught up with us yet. But hey, maybe for our 13th birthday! You never know!)

  1. “an Afternoon at the Museum of Natural History with Jen Richards

    You can race each other to see who can correctly spell “Mesozoic Era” first”

    I mean, yeah, I would suggest a spelling contest while on a date.

  2. IS THIS MAGIC?!?!

    MY TEEN CRUSH IS SEIMONE AUGUSTUS!!!! WHERE DID YOU FIND MY LOST JOURNALS?!?!!

    One of my close friends/basketball teammate in middle and highschool is cousins with her. I went to sooo many LSU games and watched my friend talk to her and I could never muster up the courage to say anything. I went to basketball camp at LSU one summer and still said no words as she was teaching me drills!!

    • First of all, love the quiz, more quizzes, all the quizzes, keep them coming.

      Secondly my date is open mic night at the comedy cellar with Carrie Brownstein and while I am shy af and will not be taking the mic, thank you, I am still pretty damn impressed with my results, given that she is one of my top celeb crushes. (Have you ever heard her speak? Like for real? She is so intelligent and well-spoken… It is beyoooooond sexy.)

  3. “Your Queer Celebrity Dream Date Is… Drinking Green Juice in LA with Kristen Stewart

    Make sure to practice your scowl for the paparazzi cameras ahead of time”

    This quiz was so fun to take and all of the other answers in the comment section are amazing too!

  4. The mobile site really just puts comments wherever it wants, doesn’t it?? My comment posted elsewhere as a response so let’s try again.

  5. Carmen how did you know I *literally* fantasize about dodging the paps in LA with Kristen at a green juice bar??? I have NEVER laid eyes on a pic of her out n about in LA with a gf w/o mentally photoshopping myself into it. More Autostraddle magic! and I will take more of these quizzes ANY day! Carmen you’re a powerful fairy gaymother

  6. “Candle Making and a Walk in the Park with Queen Latifah

    She’ll tell you old war stories from the 90s while the wax cools.”

    Haha, literally one of my favorite things about meeting a new person is that I get to tell them all my stories that everyone I already know has heard 10 times before. (I’m gonna be really fun when I’m 80, let me tell ya.)
