This very weekend, right now in fact, we’re opening the A+ Members Discord Server again! Who knows what will happen! Tarot readings! Book clubs! Impromptu skillshare workshops! Lessons for elders about how to use TikTok! More pet photos! 9am PST Saturday March 6 – 8pm PST Sunday March 7
We live in a time when you can see yourself reflected in all kinds of media, from all kinds of corporations, who never liked to talk about us before. But when you click on those things, you are giving people money who are not part of our community.
Join us for a conversation with Riese Bernard (Co-Founder and CEO of Autostraddle) and Gabrielle Korn (author of “Everybody (Else) is Perfect,” former EIC of Nylon, former Autostraddle writer) about building the queer media you want to see in the world, and the work that is left to do!
Today’s the day, A+ member! Join us on for the Autostraddle Discord Server experiment of February 2021! Bring you pet photos, your houseplant ailments, you latest hobby, your personals ad!
We’re very serious gay professionals.
Queer Soup Night debuted in Portland, OR last weekend and raised $1,200 for local organization Nxt Lvl. Also, everyone looked VERY cute serving and eating their soup.
Queer Appalachia celebrated the release of Electric Dirt: A Celebration of Queer Voices and Identities from Appalachia and the South while raising funds for Southerners on New Ground and oh, having a Queer Granny Witch party!
This year I decided to DO Dinah (as opposed to last year when I ran away and went camping). It’s basically “how long can I survive in the heat before I die” and then “how long can I stay at this party before I pass out” and repeat.
I’m extremely excited to tell y’all that it’s official: I’m headed back to DC for the 2016 NYFLC! And, um, duh, I wanna see you there.
Outside Lands: It’s chilly, there are trees, there’s great music and delicious food. You should go.
This weekend, Autostraddle’s Babe-B-Q celebration is coming to a backyard, fire pit, and/or other totally appropriate location near you. And I’ve rounded up all of the events our readers are hosting to be part of the action in this very post!
Folks came from Mexico, Argentina and everywhere in between as well as from Spain for three days of workshops, cultural presentations and a raucous and beautiful closing march.
So many parties, so much pride.
“The energy in the air was super reminiscent of a sporty lesbian summer camp. Or how I assume a sporty lesbian summer camp would be.”
IT’S PRIDE, DAMMIT! And since it wouldn’t be a good time without, um, all of us, I highly recommend that each and every one of you spends the month hanging out with one another at these meet-ups.
I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but um, Orange is the New Black comes back this weekend. And what better way to ring in the occasion than marathoning the entire hot mess with a bunch of queer chicks?
“I’m so tired of our stories being saturated in death and martyrdom. What’s lacking in the way our stories are told by the media is our joy. This is an entire show where we’re sharing laughter. That’s heart medicine.”
“We’re here on our own terms; we’re not waiting around for the colonial gaze to acknowledge us. In so many spaces, we are pushed out, marginalized – but actually, really, we have a lot of collective power.”
The Queers and Comics conference took place on May 7th and 8th — here’s what Joana Estrela thought about it!
Let’s talk about our favorite sexy video games, and then come see me talk about games LIVE in San Francisco on Tuesday!
“Queer Fashion Week wasn’t just about an aesthetic. It was about our community beyond just our sexualities, about body positivity, about representation, about celebrating and supporting each other in all things queer.”
