Hi, I have nothing witty to say, I just want to make sure you know about this.

  • Mary Lambert is singing “Same Love” at the NRL finals in Australia and she’s honestly, the most perfect person ever.

I always think that it’s very interesting: laughing so hard you’re going to cry and crying so hard you’re going to laugh. I don’t think that that’s a coincidence that they’re related, I think that they access a similar part in the human brain and I think that that’s a place where I live. So my performances are a lot like that.

It’s an absurd joy to be living, and laughing is so trivial and stupid but it’s everything. It’s also the most important thing to be doing. You can’t cry about everything but also you should cry about everything. It’s very cathartic to do all of those things all at once, but you also have to be a functioning person.

    ???”you have a long life ahead of you, and i’ll tell you it’s not gonna always be easy, but I can promise you it will be fruitful and with much purpose. all the bridges you’ve burned, you had to, so that you could rebuild them to become a stronger and more wonderful you. There will be pain, there will be doubt there will be beauty, there will be the unknown. there will be so many moments of joy and delight that the whole universe will feel painted in hues of amber and wonder. there will be times you are so sad you can’t lift your head. and there will be times you are so happy that the sensation of life knocks you down. but most importantly, there will be you. a whole, whole lot of it. and you will feel good about who she is and who she is still becoming.” – @saintrecords #artist #femmesofcolorvisibility #qtpoc #qwoc #migrant #writersofcolor #poet #gendernonconforming #fatshion #fatfemmefriday #latinx #latinxscreate #latina #writersofinstagram #latinasbelike #art [ photo by @brownroundboi ]

    Everyone had something amazing to say. The whole thing is just really pure and good and you should read it to feel pure and good. Sonia Guiñasaca, managing director of Culture Strike said this:

    I feel beautiful when I am able to wear the perfect outfit that fits my body just right and I am wearing the heck out of my purple lipstick. I feel beautiful when I’m around people that are femme like me, who are gender-nonconforming like me, who speak in accents, whose bodies range in size, that adorn their fat brown or black bodies in all the glitter or jewelry or latest Fenty shimmer they want, that are audacious and daring with no fucks given about respectability politics, being the oceans of possible marvelous ways to exist.

    Happy Sunday little birds!

    1. The third angel needs to be Gina Rodriguez. After seeing her gunning in that “Annihilation” trailer, I need me some more of that.

    2. Will the Charlie’s Angels reboot come complete with a new version of Independent Women Part 1?

      All the women, who are independent
      Throw your hands up at me

    3. Just gonna put it out there: a bunch of bad ass real-life Ripleys boning in zero gravity would be, like, a giant leap for (wo)mankind

    4. I thought the VF interviewer seemed more interested in talking about herself than Kate, but the double denim pic is amazing.

      • Yeah. But I’ll take that over some of the other VF celebrity profiles I’ve read that are usually done by men and almost always misogynist in tone.

        • Then again, I saw that the interviewer compared Jennifer Lawrence to Greta Garbo and for that she will never be forgiven. Not by me, anyway.

    5. My immediate thoughts on a female Charlie:
      Helen Mirren
      Shohreh Aghdashloo
      Holland Taylor

      And I’d keel over making noises somewhere hyena and a dying whale: Judi Dench

      • Maybe I am biased, but Shohreh Aghdashloo would be great Charlie. She’s a treasure in the Iranian community.

        • Possibly, but consider Charlie as an auditory presence with no visual. Her voice is strong like a classic hollywood star, there’s character to it in a way that’s not something modern cinema carries much of.

          It’d be great to see Shohreh of course but if we don’t we won’t feel like we’re missing half her performance just because her facial expressions aren’t present.


      • My first thought for a female Charlie was Queen Latifah, but then I thought no, C.C.H. Pounder would rock.

    6. Um I need help Kate McKinnon looking like the aesthetic love child of Lauren Bacall and Katharine Hepburn is killing me and gumming up my ode to how much I love sports bras, feel my most hot and powerful self in my traditional cut black sports bra and pair of jeans on the dance floor with my shirt unbuttoned or abandoned.

      Also idea for an straddlers gallery: What is your power outfit? The outfit that makes you feel most authentically and powerfully your rad queer self?

      (Blame the neo-soul music IDK)

    7. That suit! I feel like there should be a non-profit program that issues suits to ladies who want to wear one, because A) putting a suit on for my wedding was literally the first time I realized I could feel sexy while dressed up instead of forever being the queer kid in the ill fitting clothes in the 90s teen movie. B) I would get to see more women wearing suits.

    8. omg i want a whole franchise about the lesbian astronauts who would’ve signed up to that space program. just like, the l word – BUT IN SPACE
