I visited two Pride parades in Portugal and I’m here to tell you all about it!
A link roundup full of wearable felt cat heads, black women who ran for president of this nation, figuring out what’s going on with Cleveland Pride, a playlist inspired by Stranger Things, the home pregnancy test, a Navy ship named for a gay rights icon, a coding class for (queer) moms, and so much more!
We eased into the raging with a potluck of queers.
“I like being disabled because I like being myself (which is radical enough for any woman to say). Pride, though, requires an even bigger risk.”
Seahorse sex, whiskey with a secret past that nobody could ever ever see coming nope totally improbable, Shirley Manson is coming for your ageist bullshit, people skipping SF Pride, LGBT history in the wake of Orlando, people talking about the word queer, and so very much more!
As one speaker said, ‘a federal official suggested that maybe it was best to cancel the festivities – we said back, maybe you don’t know who we are.’ We stand up, fight hate, and spread love.
June is hereby Autostraddle Pride Meet-Up Month, and we want y’all to hang out all month long and be here, queer, and getting others used to it!
“Put a rainbow on it”
