Sunday Funday Is Celebrating Roxane Gay and Black Panther Forever

Hey, cool cats! I’ve spent the last few days getting started around 11 am and then before I know it it’s 8:45, but I’ve gotten nothing done! Wow, I love summer! It’s such a fun and productive time! It’s also gonna be 112º FAHRENHEIT tomorrow in Austin!!! Yee haw!!!! Let’s head to greener pastures and look at some great stuff that happened this week instead of thinking about there are still 62 days left until autumn begins.


Stephanie Beatriz talked about bisexual representation at SDCC this weekend on the Brooklyn Nine-Nine panel.

Beatriz said she was thankful to have had a voice in this development, adding, “I was really glad to have a voice in this and, at least for me, it really reflected what’s happening in my own life.”

Billboard made a list of all the celebs who’ve come out this year, and all of our faves are on it.

Thanks to feminism, we’ll finally have a Predator that’s a woman! 

In Their Own Words “is an exploration of non-binary gender identity created by non-binary teens and young adults.”

Queer! Women’s! WWII! History!!!!

Youtuber Jamie Curry came out because she’s in love! How stinking cute is that?!

  1. Aaah congrats to Roxanne Gay.

    It’s sweet tea with lemon weather, but when in doubt go for an oral rehydration solution. Keep a close eye on infants, pets and the elderly. Even if they say “honey I grew up here, I’m use to the heat” there’s a lot of medications with dehydrative effects prescribed to the elderly so keep an eye out y’all.

  2. Oh god is there anything sexier than Janelle Monae saying “I don’t give a fuck” she slays me every time.

    On a completely different note, Jamie Curry was absolutely adorable. Very cute and very brave. I’m looking forward to the wedding for sure.
