The Comment Awards Are All Over Fall

Hello, travelers! Happy almost October and happy Bisexual Awareness Week!

This week Lila wrote about finding her queerness in rural America, Carmen explained that it is possible to come out to your parents for the second time and Audrey talked about coming out as bisexual.

Fall television season is upon us and the Autostraddle recap machine is in full gear. Rachel wrote about the first episode of “Transparent” and Riese covered the season two premiere of “Faking It.” Ellen Page and Kate Mara won’t be on the next season of “True Detective” (because of the patriarchy) but at least we can watch them play detectives in this hilarious video.

Speaking of superstar lesbians, if you haven’t seen Brittani’s “Words With Girls” pilot yet you should queue that loveliness up, stat. Don’t you know everything Brittani Nichols touches turns hilarious (or into quesadillas)?!

Also also also, editors and commenters talked about what first brought them to Autostraddle and Laura invited you to join the Speakeasy’s book club.  Finally, KaeLyn’s wrote a beautiful love story about her vacuum because KaeLyn is an amazing unicorn.
