The Comment Awards are Falling for You This Season

Hello beautiful pizza rats! What have you found worth dragging onto the subway with you lately?

So many beautiful things have happened this week: Vivian saw and was seen by the Pope! Riese had some feelings about Jessica Nunes, we’re giving the queer fall TV lineup our hellos, and we’re sending love to our bis. Also! Gabrielle did some incredible writing about writing about trans women, the Emmys were more feminist than ever, and all the queers are looking so good at Oakland Pride and NY Fashion Week. You too can look this good, as Lydia shows us how to stay warm and keep it cool in our favorite new jean jackets.

Speaking of the cooling weather, grab a very soft blanket and curl up with the queer tarot book you didn’t know you wanted and all the amazing Comics and Sequential Art award winners! Or, if you’d rather listen to your stories, Samara rounded up an amazing list of podcasts hosted by queer ladies. We also rounded up some vital stories about mental health, we met Willow the coolest blacksmith, and Laura imagined her picnic date with Galadriel. Phew!

  1. Oh I know who A is, it’s Runatyr, Asagrimr.

    The Hanged One, the Wanderer, the Ruler of Treachery, the original Riddler.

    *has made semi-obsure ‘occult’ joke because I’m just that witchy and out of touch with modern soapy teen TV*
