On this week’s Buffering the Vampire Slayer, Kristin Russo and Jenny Owen Youngs have rewritten the lyrics to “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” as “BUFFY, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE.”
I followed Kristin and Jenny at FlameCon, New York City’s gay comic con, as they spread their love for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the LGBTQ community to everyone they met.
I got married to Jenny Owen Youngs four years ago, nearly to the day, so that I could demand that she get in our marital bed to livestream for you about all that we learned about weddings (and ourselves) in the process. We talked attire, budgets, pushy parents, feminism (of course), and oh-so-much-more.
If you’re having trouble shaking the feeling that all of your media feeds are one giant grief orgy, try changing the pace of what you take in. Not even the content, necessarily — just the rate. Podcasts are an easy way to do that: 30 to 60 minutes later, you’re done, informed, and ready to fight your next battle.
In which Jenny Owen Youngs is starting a new life among the ostriches, Ruby Rose is reunited with her iconic BFF and Brittani Nichols has a dance for you.
It’s called Buffering the Vampire Slayer and there’s gonna be original song recaps in each episode. It’s true!
Is Lindsay Lohan currently possessed by a demon?! I don’t know, but here’s a dog jumping into Jenny Owen Youngs’ lap! Also, Soko is dancing and Ellen Page is busy being supportive and adorable.
Kristin, co-founder of Everyone is Gay, and musician Allison Weiss have teamed up to bring you OUR Restroom, a campaign that works to educate businesses on the importance of unisex bathrooms.
Samira Wiley’s got a shirt you’re gonna like, Jenny Owen Youngs wrote you a new theme song for Rizzoli and Isles, and Amandla Stenberg is really raising the bar for Instagram users everywhere.
“Everyone I had dated or made out with (or even thought about making out with) in the past year thought it was about them. At the time, I was certain they were all wrong — except, you know, one of them.”
Also, Ellen Page is making short films about her dog, Amandla Stenberg is smoldering and Jiz Lee is taking us on a journey to the butch ballet.
What if Brittani Nichols decided to hold a baby bunny? What if Laura Jane Grace just happened to be inside a video game? What if Soko were posting about the single life?
You’ve had a hard week, maybe you’d like to watch this video of Ellen Page’s dog trying to eat xylophone mallets instead.
Who is this new gal who’s pals with Kristen Stewart anyway?
The cover song you didn’t know you were living for.
Break out your stew recipes and hot cocoa mix, sharpen your pumpkin-carving knife, unearth your slippers from the back of the closet, press play, and settle in for the fall.
Tegan Quin’s bedhead, Marisa Paternoster’s masterful guitar solo and some honest-to-god rainbow sharks.
Also Jenny Owen Youngs became a Reptile Scout and Ellen Page went to the carnival that (probably) only exists in Jenny Schecter’s mind.
Tegan and Sara have a cute dinner together, Jenny Owen Youngs is lost and found, Jasika Nicole and Brittani Nichols have a secret project, and Samira Wiley wants to share this stir fry with you.
This week, pretty much the whole cast of Orange Is The New Black went to Pride and Lea DeLaria high-fived a million angels.
