Hey pals! For many of us, it’s the beginning of another full work week after a luscious week of slowing down. Hopefully you were filled with all the inspiration you need to power through this next week. I know you can do it! The year is only about 35 days away from ending, and you can make it! We all can! If you need some more fuel, check out what I got for you this week.
+ Ikea did a home makeover video with Krysta and Cristina, a couple who bought a house primarily because they got an adorable new puppy named Whiskey. The gay feel good story you need this morning.
You’re Not Hardcore Unless You Live Hardcore
+ Laura Jane Grace taught little kids about gender using rock and roll at an event called Genderful at the Brooklyn Library! (If you check it out on Facebook, beware of the comment section)
Our Queer TV Ourselves
+ On a new HBO documentary series,15: A Quinceañera Story, one character, Zoey is a trans girl. She will dedicate her quinceañera to her two trans godmothers who never got to have a quinceañera of their own. Get ready to cry!!!!!!!
+ The new trailer for NBC’s Rise just came out! It seems like a mashup of our favorite show to love to hate, Glee and like…Remember the Titans? I don’t know, but it seems like it’s gonna be gay culture. Rosie Perez and Auli’i Cravalho are in it!
+ She’s Gotta Have It, a remake of the Spike Lee movie of the same name just dropped on Netflix and I hear it’s good and gay.
+ The first three episodes of Marvel’s The Runaways is on Hulu now, and while it doesn’t seem gay yet, there’s a lot of teenage nascent feminism and someone’s got purple hair, and there are a lot of powerful older women with tight ponytails and well manicured nails, so I think you’ll like it.
Slow news week equals a good news week to me. Hope you enjoyed it, hope you’re fired up for the week to come. Here’s some love (and a picture of my cat being perfect) to hold you over until next Sunday.
