Hello and good morning, or afternoon, or evening! I hope you’re doing well. I just got my flu shot on Tuesday and finally had the “not the flu but not NOT the flu” thing that happens a few days later, so I’m a little crummy, but PROTECTED. I spent my Saturday attempting to get my cat to visit the vet who came to our home but she would not come out for them. Then I made an apple pie which is beautiful, but also took a full eight hours, and my right thumb is still numb from the way I was (incorrectly?) holding the knife.
I also watched the first two Lord of The Ring extended edition movies because fantasy is as close to horror as my scary ass can get. Happy spooky month y’all!
+ Number one, have you seen what our new gay alien moms (and Steven!) are up to?
+ Also, Ruby Rose doesn’t want you to think of Batwoman as just a lesbian crimefighter. Should I stop telling people it’s the “lesbian Batwoman show”?
+ Somerset’s first Pride event
+ It is not good news that our rights are being debated in the supreme court, but it is cool how many hard hitters are working for us!
+ Look at these lesbian politicians politicking together.

The intersection of Pico Boulevard and Norton Avenue in Arlington Heights was dedicated Saturday as Jewel Thais-Williams Square, honoring the LGBTQ and human rights activist.
The intersection is in front of the Catch One disco, which Thais- Williams opened in 1973 and owned until 2015. It is the nation’s oldest black-owned disco, according to Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson, who authored the motion designating the intersection in Thais-Williams’ honor.
“Everybody deserves to be able to enjoy a night out where they can feel safe and welcomed, but before Jewel Thais-Williams, that was not the reality for Los Angeles’ black LGBTQ+ community,” Wesson said.
Okay have the best week! Sit next to a cute cat! Spend a ridiculous amount of time making a delicious pie! Eat a soup! Kiss your pals on the cheek! Take care of each other because we cannot do this alone–at least, I don’t want to. ❤️❤️❤️
