Hello, fireflies! Things are still A Lot, but in light of a couple of pieces of good news from the Supreme Court this week, and powerful turnouts at Black Lives Matter demonstrations across the world, part of what I’m feeling is this weird, unfamiliar emotion – I think it’s called… hope?
This week, Reine #9 reminded us to take care of each other.
Autostraddle’s Resistance coverage has been SO comprehensive, just all the way through – you can read all of the pieces here.
Drew wrote about Disclosure: Trans Lives on Screen, which I absolutely cannot WAIT to see – it premieres on Netflix today!
Chyler Leigh and Lili Reinhart came out! (I have been waiting for Chyler to do this ever since she toured the UK with her band and did every performance draped in a Pride flag, so this is very exciting for me.)
This is everything:15,000 Stand Up For Black Trans Lives in Brooklyn, Show Us What Pride Month Should Always Look Like.
“Great terrible question, anonymous Karen!”

A+ use of song lyrics in the award titles, QG
Martin Luther Vandross, Jr.
that is all
I completely (and I mean completely) missed that joke the first time I read the comic. Thank goodness for the Comment Awards! I needed the laugh today.
Yesss to the Martin Luther Vandross, Jr award
Surely a double award for Dickens “I don’t want to hear about your tale of two houses” and Whitney “We have a solution”
That Chyler Leigh/Batwoman idea is INCREDIBLE.
I love it ! It’s the best idea I’ve seen and it would sure fly.
A zipline right into my heart.
