Um, remember that amazing video from a week ago where a queer woman was literally the center of the “H” in a Hillsryu Clinton ad? IDK, maybe you saw it. Maybe you, like me, cried a little. Either way, here’s a BuzzFeed interview with the lesbian couple I wish I had interviewed first from that very ad! enhanced-5936-1429125923-9

  1. Fortune Feimsterrrr! I haven’t heard anything about her in years. I’m glad she’s getting her own show.

  2. What a lovely couple for the Hilary campaign ad, though I wish the video clip of them hadn’t been so short! But it’s awesome that her face was in the middle of the H! And speaking of the election, you know who would make a kickass president? Wendy Davis. I’m reading her memoir and now I respect her even more than before.

    Also, that cat made my day so happy. Thank you for another great Sunday Funday, Carmen!
