Welcome back to Sunday Funday, a gathering place for good gay news on your weekend! I’ll be stepping in for Al(aina) for the next few weeks, but they’ll be back before you know it. I hope your weekend has been full of everything awesome; by which I mean I hope you’ve been binging One Day at a Time season three!

+ Guides at historic palaces in the UK have been given the go-ahead to talk about all the lesbian shenanigans in royal court history. Thanks, The Favourite!
