Some Things: Blah-loween

Before you go! Did you like what you just read? We keep Autostraddle majority free-to-read, but it isn't free to create! And yet most readers don't support this indie queer site. Will you be one of the people who do? A+ membership starts at just $4/month or $30/year and they literally keep us from closing. Will you join?

Cameron is an illustrator hailing from Ohio. When she’s not drawing, she’s probably very, very quietly having loud thoughts about: queer things, her eventual shop, what to watch next on Netflix, food, names for her future pets, and tumblr.

Cameron has written 76 articles for us.


  1. I feel the opposite! I usually don’t get into Halloween but this year I am feeling the extreme need to be someone/thing else for a night. Something that doesn’t have to worry about politics or rights being taken away, like a dinosaur or a fictional witch.

    Also, I’m thankful for queer-only Halloween parties. Not that our community is without those problems, but the likelihood of seeing a racist Halloween costume is much lower.
