Hey Skittles, you made it to Sunday! I spent this past week moving into a new place, and it was rough, but I felt so powerful because I did it all by myself! I’ve still got one room left in my old apartment that I need to vacuum and shampoo the carpets, but after that I’m done. I’m buying a bottle of wine, cleansing my new place with sage, and listening to old holiday episodes of Prairie Home Companion.
Also, a tip: if your cat needs Xanax for travel, give it to her. The best method is cracking open a pill in a nice bowl of warmed meat juice from a can. Yes, it sounds disgusting, but you will have a much happier home.

+ Holland Taylor, HBIC and girlfriend to Sarah Paulson, is breaking her own rules and acting in a horror project. In an Entertainment Tonight exclusive, she talks about being frightened to read the entire script for a new series based off of a Stephen King novel, “At first, I did not want to read the other parts of the script that did not involve me. Some people like to scare themselves to death; I do not want to scare myself to death.” Amen sister.

Sounds Gay, I’m In
Produced by Krishna Istha and Dani Weber, the ongoing popularity of the CBC is evidence in itself that the QPOC community (and its allies) is thirsty for events where they can cheer on and support incredible talent in an accessible-to-all safe space.
I Wanna, I Wanna, I Wanna, I Wanna!
Picture it: 1997. Midriffs are showing, Sketchers are the sneaker to own, Posh Spice is not yet a Beckham, and one girl group carves out their place in history by creating the most amazing movie ever: Spice World. If you’re in the UK, you can relive this magic all over again in a movie theatre on September 29th, 2017. According to Paper Magazine the Spice Girls are trying their hardest to make sure fans worldwide can see the movie in theatres again, but there are no official dates outside of the UK yet (and those are selling out quickly!).
Rojo Caliente Might Be New York’s Next First Lady!
While I am typically not into celebrities running for political office, our very own Cynthia Nixon might be running for governor of the state of New York. According to the Daily News she is one of several prominent Democrats set out to run against incumbent Andrew Cuomo. She’s an outspoken activist, especially on issues surrounding public education, and she’s already got Billy Easton from the Alliance for Quality Education on her side. Plus, we already know voters love lesbians! But most importantly, do you know what this means? It means that we might get Cynthia Nixon’s perfect red-headed butch wife as the First Lady of New York. Y’all, this healed my depression.
Happy Sunday! Go pick a gay flower for someone cute!
