Sunday Funday Defines American Lesbianism With Kristen Stewart and King Princess

Hello friends! I’m on vacation! I saw my mom and I went to the beach and I went on a walking tour and I made challah (literally) with my hands and NO HANDMIXER. I love vacation. I love beling like “oh, we were gonna leave at 1, but now 2:30? No problem! I have zero plans! Also, because I’ve been on vacation for almost a week, I’m convinced that the good news I found for the Funday is the ONLY news there is this week. Right? Right.

+ Kristen Stewart explains her whole career for us. God, remember Panic Room???

+ “Roll+Heart is an earnest LGBT tabletop visual novel” I don’t know what any of those words mean when placed in a sentence together, but it felt like it might be something a few of you would get excited about.

+ A Chicago mosque is broadening the norms of Muslim life by having women and LGBTQ+ prayer leaders.

+ Brazil’s trans influencers are changing the marketing game.

+ Ten more YA books starring queer girls.

+ As I was looking for links for this week’s post, I thought “why don’t you check your ‘Meryl Streep’ google alert?” and I am glad I did. King Princess included a Meryl Streep scream into her newest techno song.

And an update:

+ Pulp fiction helped define American lesbianism, which is maybe why we’re all obsessed with straight women who look like they’d step on us?

+ How Peppa Pig became an LGBTQ+ icon.

+ Lil Nas X’s coming out and success highlights how hip-hop is at a crossroads (that I think it’s ready to face).

+ A novel by Swedish author Sara Stridesburg, Valerie, is an “Extraordinary Love Letter to a Radical Feminist” 

+ Sleater-Kinney on St. Vincent

That’s all the news fit to print folks. Enjoy it, let it make you happy to be alive and then go do something fun and gay with your friends!! Love you, see you soon, etc etc etc.

  1. ‘It was a formative time’

    I’d love it so much if Kristen Stewart could link her queerness back to Panic Room, because honestly, same.

  2. More people should read this news, the real news, the best parts of who we are. I’m personally very grateful for Sunday Funday.

    Also, Kirsten Stewart AND King Princess, catch me while I fall.

  3. Jodie Foster throwing you your 11th birthday party is peak lesbian childhood experience, I think.

    • Like, I wish I had known a Jodie Foster when I was 11. Any grown woman who loved other women, who could show me I could have a happy future being myself. I hope I’m a Jodie Foster for some kid someday.
