Happy Sunday! I woke up thinking it was Monday. Spent a full hour in Monday mode and then realized “holy shit I missed a day!” So here we are. Do days even mean anything anymore? Why do I keep buying planners? Do I really think they’ll make the endlessness of time feel more manageable? I live in Texas, I’m not leaving this house. Why keep trying???????
Anyway! News! Good news! I’ve got it, so I’m gonna share it!
If today were a day when we left our homes, a lot of places would be celebrating Pride today!

One climate change litigator has already taken note. Julia Olson, the lead lawyer for plaintiffs in the climate case Juliana v. the United States, made the Bostock opinion part of her request this week to the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to hold a new hearing on the case, which was dismissed in January.
Ms. Olson said that the questions in her case were consistent with the principles laid out in the Gorsuch opinion. “I have always believed that we win this case with an opinion written by a conservative judge or justice,” she added.
+ Tonight! A Pride celebration and digital fundraiser for the Knights and Orchid Society, “a Black, transgender and gender nonconforming-led organization that provides a wealth of services for the rural LGBTQ community”

Very Cool Queers
Okay love you so much. I’m gonna try to spend most of my day away from the computer and then do the same thing every day this week, even though, yes, that feels impossible, I know. Take a break if and when you need it, you deserve it!! Have the best stinking week that you can. Pick up some grocery store flowers for your spirit.
