Sunday Funday and the Pot-Smoking Lesbian Coalition

Featured image by Robin Roemer.

Happy Sunday amigx! I’ve been back from A-Camp X for six (6) days and I have cried for at least four (4) of them! Camp was great for me. The workshops were great, the site was great, an I very casually changed my name to Al(aina)! I love the magic of that place and hope you get to go at least once if you’ve never been. Even though I’m a little sad, there’s so much good stuff and happiness in the world that I can’t wait to get into with you!

Queer Women are Obviously Magical Creatures

Isabella Rotman is a damn hero! Not only did she get three of the four flags she designed for A-Camp back, she uploaded the designs as prints! That you can buy! Right now!

We’re gonna have lesbian witches on British television!!! This is what Sabrina the Teenaged Witch wished it could’ve been and I’m hecking thrilled.

Republicans in Texas are… very nervous about the possibility of the possibility of voters choosing a Democrat for senator and governor. 

Dave Carney, a GOP consultant in Texas since 1993 and Gov. Greg Abbott’s top strategist, chortled about “the pot smoking lesbian coalition,” as he called this year’s Democratic slate.

(On Friday, after this story was published online, Texas Democrats began selling “pot smoking lesbian coalition” T-shirts and other wares, mocking the Abbott camp’s concern about their “amazing Democratic slate and big tent party.”)

Women Who Make Everyone’s Life Better


Five Muslim women talk about their goals for Ramadan this year.

Activist Johnetta Elzie talks about what it took to come out to her family.

I’m so glad to be a part of this community of people who love and support women! I’m so happy so many cool things happened this week! I’m so happy I had so many good experiences on a hill with a bunch of queers the week before that! I’m so happy you’re alive! Happy Sunday pals!

    • Closing ceremony procession when we sang “Pomp and Circumstance,” aka the graduation song! And now that song is linked in my mind to vibrators ?

  1. Hi Al! It was really great meeting you! And also, can I put “pot smoking lesbian” on my headstone?

    • the buzzfeed article gives so many more pictures and i was OVERWHELMED when i found out it was a gay wedding. like THIS ONE is SOOOO GOOD


  2. Does one have to go to Texas to join this lesbian coalition, or can I start a Bay Area chapter?

  3. I’m so excited about ‘A Discovery of Witches’! I’ve been a huge fan of Alex Kingston since she played Moll Flanders (a mini series way back in ’96, a time famed for it’s lack queer content – my confused little bisexual heart jumped for joy to see a such a character!).
    Also, in the same article Pink News presents ‘Sirens’ as something positive to look forward to?! Reading the synopsis made me feel physically queasy…. “a show about a bisexual mermaid who appears in a small fishing town and starts laying waste to its inhabitants and their relationships.” Yaaaaaaaay… :/
