The Comment Awards Are Bisexual And Contain Multitudes

A small, brown and white dog peeking over their laptop screen, with a caption that says "Hey did you see that comment?!"

Hi, butterflies and caterpillars! What a week! I love you and I’m so glad that we’re together in this strange dimension that is, apparently, reality. Here we go!

This week, Bi+ Week continued to blow our minds with a fantastic essay from A.E. that I could not describe or quantify if I wanted to — you NEED to read it — and also pieces about queer Dungeons & Dragons, being a bisexual sugar baby, an interview with Adrian’s ex-boyfriend, a Bi+ roundtable from the team, and more! The writers, Rachel and the whole team really outdid themselves this year.

The winners of the Third Annual Gay Emmys were announced! Unlike the Straight Emmys, I am so excited about every single one of these wins!

Britni says: live your best life! Watch the WNBA playoffs!

The Grease Bats took a bath.

Sarah chatted with the author of You Exist Too Much, the bi Arab romance novel you probably need to read.

Drew reviewed Kissing Jessica Stein, a much-debated movie I can’t help but love with all my heart.

I think we can all agree that Chef Melissa King.

Finally, read this, from Xoai: What This Trans Survivor Wants J.K. Rowling to Know.

And then there were your comments!

On If You Love Powerful Queer Women (and Yourself) You Should Be Watching the WNBA Playoffs:

The WNBAwwwww Award to :), Mathilde and Britni de la Cretaz:

I can’t thank AS enough for bringing these games to my attention this year. Aside from that rough Sparks game last night, all of the games have been close and exciting! And there’s just so many out gays and such a focus on racial justice.

On Dungeons & Dragons: A Great Place to Be Queer:

The Imaginarium Award to Apothenea and Melissa Lusk:

Role playing was absolutely fundamental to me understanding more about my own sexual desires. I had thought I was middle-of-the-road bi. But when I had to role play my female character in a romantic encounter with a female NPC, it lit up parts of me in ways I had never thought possible. Those experiences helped me to realize I was a lot more gay than I’d ever imagined.

On Am I Bisexual? Is That The Word?

The Welcome Home Award to Vidney Tuesday:

So much love for this essay. I’ve missed your writing here, and this is a hell of a return. Thank you for this

On Sunday Funday Is Making a High Holidays Cheese Plate with Audre Lorde!

The Restoration Software Award to aj:

I left this tab open because I wanted to watch those videos eventually, and then today I came home totally drained and this was there, waiting for me. Listening to someone absolutely gush about 1930s shoes was exactly what I needed? Pleasure! Delight! Wonder! The urge to share! This was so restoring???

On How Did We Get Here? 6 Bi People on Coming to Their Identity for Bi+ Week 2020:

The Nineties Kids Will Remember This Award to Didi and Friendly Neighborhood Bi:

I was attracted to Devon Sawa and Christina Ricci in Now and Then.

On Pop Culture Fix: Lili Reinhart’s DMs Are Filled With “More Quality Human Beings” Since She Came Out as Bisexual:

The Quality Control Award to Noodlesforever:

I too have attracted more quality human beings since I came out. Also quality cats and dogs but I am not sure it’s related.

And on Lez Try It: Sword Fighting á la Lost and Delirious:

The Anything Once Award to Laura:

Other suggestions for activities/careers/lifestyles you could try: -Being a not at all evil villain (D.E.B.S) – Florist who knows the meaning of flowers (Imagine Me and You) – computer need (Sense8/ Person of Interest) – living in an ’80s virtual reality town (Back Mirror – San Junipero)
