Sunday Funday is Celebrating DeWanna Bonner and Candice Dupree’s Basketball Love

Happy July Cheerios! I hope you partied so hard (or didn’t) during Pride month, and now it’s time for July, GAY WRATH MONTH! What are you mad at? How are you gonna use that anger to change the fucking world?? I dare you to do it. Keep the heteros on their toes–every month is a gay month, and they better not forget it.

9 queer black womxn on the advice they’d give their teenage selves.

Please read this sweet profile on two married WNBA players, DeWanna Bonner and Candice Dupree! (spoiler they have 10-month old twin girls!!!)

The New Yorker copied us, and wrote about Hannah Gadsby and Nanette! If you want to read the roundtable we published, be sure to check that one out too!

There’s a queer rock camp happening in Rochester KaeLyn wants you to know about! It seems so great, maybe you want to know more?

Queer Rock Camp empowers LGBTQ youth and allies while building community through musical collaboration in a safer space. We support the fluidity of gender, sexuality, and identities and provide educational workshops and skillshares to amplify confidence, creativity and self-expression. We are anti-oppression, and counter ageism by encouraging youth to be fully involved in the process of organizing and leading camp activities.

All right buddies, I love you so much. So, so, much; don’t ever forget that. Here’s a queer music video to keep you living/laughing/loving throughout the week:

  1. The WNBA profile was EVERYTHING this morning!!! How wonderful that two active players are married and raising a family! I love it!!! Thanks Al(aina)! You made my Sunday!!!

  2. DeWanna Bonner? I am dying. Do you think that’s her real name, because it couldn’t be any more perfect for a queer lady.

  3. I needed pretty much all of these; thank you!
    Side note – the WNBA is easily one of the most inclusive/accepting leagues out there. Highly recommend supporting them. There are a lot of other queer people in and around the league as well! Like 3/5 of the Phoenix lineup (Bonner included), Elena Delle Donne in DC, Layshia Clarendon in Atlanta, Seimone Augustus/Rebekkah Brunson in Minnesota – and their head coach/GM Cheryl Reeve is married to VP of business operations Carley Knox!

    I needed the queer black womxn links too. I just. Yes. So thank you Al(aina)!

    • I should say it’s 3/5 of Phoenix’s *STARTING* lineup – Brittney Griner and Diana Taurasi (married to PHX director of player performance Penny Taylor) are the others who are out. d’oh!
