Legacies intersect in this Pride month to remind us that defunding the police system is both a historically Black and historically queer demand, and that disruption and direct action can get that demand met.
It’s Pride month; have you heard? Have you danced in the streets, wearing a rainbow flag, surrounded by topless women, shouting your queerness and here-ness, maybe honking a horn or ringing a bell? Here’s hoping!
Indie queer stores rarely have the cash-on-hand to make Pride-specific tees, but they’re still loaded with Pride-appropriate tees. Slogans include Lavender Menace, Magic Black Femme, Box Eater, Radical Indigenous Queer Feminist, Queer and Forever Here and SO MUCH MORE!
Tis the season to celebrate Pride by wearing rainbow gradient t-shirts that let the world know that love is love, love wins, pride unites, equality wins, love makes a family, it’s all love, we need more love, everybody is free to love and love unites!!!

“Dyke is not just a sexual orientation. It’s a political identity. It stands for community. It stands for solidarity. It stands for radical fight.”

“Our rage and our joy aren’t at odds with each other; they’re both integral to our history, our present, our future.”
This weekend, LA showed its pride by marching in resistance of oppression.
Equinox and the LGBT Community Center teamed up to make a film about the LGBT alphabet. So I interviewed the editor while we were in our pajamas.
What a time to be a queer person who wears clothing and goes shopping!
What do you look for in a Pride celebration? What should a community Pride event look like? Well reader, YOU have the power to make that decision this year when you host or attend an Autostraddle Pride meet-up!
He shouted “Repent” since the sign was not sufficient, I guess. I found myself going up to him while topless Amazons danced in his face. I found myself going up to him to say this: “I love you. I have nothing but love for you.” I couldn’t help myself.
I visited two Pride parades in Portugal and I’m here to tell you all about it!
