Sunday Funday Is Swooning at AD Franch’s Wedding

Happy Sunday buttercups! I haven’t had a full night’s sleep in over a week and I might be losing it! Who knows! Only time will tell how many times you can be awakened at 2:30 only to fall back asleep 2 hours later only to wake up 2 hours later!

Let’s have some news while we think about that.

+ Chika talks on The Read on Fuse about music, community, and more.

+ Lady Astor was the first woman to take a seat in the British Parliament. 

+ Cutie gays getting cutie married.

+ “In honor of the 100-year anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States, the Santa Cruz County Women’s Commission is commissioning artwork for its 2020 “Be the Voice” art wall exhibit.” The artists are still unselected, so if you’re a Santa Cruz artist, this might be your time to shine.

+ This decade in LGBTQ+ pop culture.

+ Spoilers about some gay canoodling in the new Star Wars

+ I’m sure we’ve mentioned this already, but Dwyane Wade loving his kid is really hecking beautiful.

+ Sunday Funday readers can have little a meme recap of the decade. As a treat.

+ 2019’s best queer movies.

+ Charlize Theron is “woefully straight” but is working to raise a happy queer kid. We love to see it.

+ Some queer stuff for your house/life that does NOT include rainbows.

+ Here are some upcoming queer debut novels.

+ Why Sam Smith embraces nonbinary identity.

Have a week friends. Let it be exactly the kind of week you need. Happy almost Hanukkah, Merry almost Christmas, happy birthday to my baby brother (who is 26, very not a baby), and happy last full week of the decade. I’m working and going to therapy this week like a scrooge should. Hope your winter holidays are what you need them to be. Love you, mean it.

  1. Omg I have been having similar insomnia all week too. It is awful!!! I hope you get some sleep soon and have a good scrooge week or whatever kind of week you want/need.

  2. Thank you Al(aina)! AD Franch’s wedding photos have been my happy place this week! Their wedding site for some reason came up on google and still has the ‘how we met story’ by Emily and it’s SO GREAT!!!
