Happy March! We made it through the first two months of the year, only ten more! Time, she sure is a cruel mistress! Just always there, going forward, not stopping, but also completely fake!
I just saw a staged reading of a play by a friend all about time, which I have decided is my truest nemesis, and now I can’t stop thinking about it! And it won’t slow down enough for me to think about it! Not to be dramatic, but I absolutely did not consent to living like this? But here the heck I am, and it’s Sunday, and we’ve had a week of good news, so here it is.
+ To end Black History Month, Teen Vogue got an exclusive Danez Smith poem. (We also included Danez in our Black History Month roundup, Eight Black LGBTQ Poets to Give Your Flowers To Right Now by Dani Janae)
+ Still thinking about that sprinting javelina? Me too. I hope she’s well.
“It was important to me to create These Thems because I wanted to bring awareness of our community through the element of comedy. Laughter is universal and it is the best tool we have to educate. By highlighting identities that haven’t been given much attention in the media, specifically about nonbinary, trans-masculine, and queer femme experiences, we are able to showcase relatable characters that truly anyone can learn from and empathize with. Representation is so important and the goal of These Thems is to give queer audiences a show made for and by our community while simultaneously offering a loving lens into the LGBTQIA+ world for cis/het audiences who want to become better allies. We provide accurate representation, dynamic storylines, and a whole lot of laughter and heart.”
+ Girls and gays, hold on to your literal and figurative hats, we are getting a NEW version of “Reflection” for the rebooted live-action version of Disney’s Mulan. Get ready to cry about not being the perfect daughter all over again!!!
+ What does this mean?!

Okay friends, see you next week. I’m gonna go stand in just my robe in the same spot for 45 minutes thinking about how I should start something but starting nothing, and then probably take a bunch of the exact same pictures of my cats. This is healing! This is life! Making and breaking promises with yourself, wearing robes, drinking hot beverages, finding joy in cats snoring sounds! We gotta keep living. More life, as Tony Kushner would say! More, more, more. Never less. Love you, do something more this week. You got this.
