Artists’ Alley is full of comics and drawings and zines and buttons and stickers showing gay and bi and queer and pan and trans and gnc characters of all types being happy and being themselves.

As millions of people lined busy streets in gayborhoods across the world for Pride weekend, 1.7 billion people began celebrating Eid al-Fitr — where after a long hot month of fasting from dawn to sunset Muslims throw a three-day party (in some places it lasts over ten) celebrating community, good food and impeccable outfits. As two holidays intersected and Queer Muslims began celebrating life at the intersection, a new holiday was born: PrEIDe.
It doesn’t look like Marvel will really going to be adding a lot of movies starring women or poc to their upcoming schedule any time soon.

It’s time to get some links in your eyeballs.
Queer young adult fiction is exploding right now, but with so much out there, how can you figure out what to read next? These 25 queer YA novels — including superheroes, romance, small-town mysteries, mermaids, assassins and more — all feature or were written by LGBTQ women.
When I heard there was a new mini-movie on Black&Sexy.TV about a group of queer women of color, I was excited to watch it, but honestly didn’t have really high expectations for it. Thankfully, I was so wrong.
