The Comment Awards Are Feeling The Heat

How goes it, sparklers? You’re looking hot today. Like really, really hot. In fact you should put a popsicle in your mouth, stat.

This week on our interwebz Carmen shared her Cher obsession, Riese made a classic rock playlist  and Anna explained that fat liberation is really queer!

Halifax just might be Canada’s queer lady mecca and speaking of lady meccas, Malaika went to New York’s Dyke March last weekend and told us all about it. And did you know that Istanbul’s Taksim Gezi protests had gay roots?

Last but not least(s), you should submit a thing to this zine and listen to DeAnne Smith’s latest latest podcast!

  1. Man, I wish I’d been around more this week. Poutine, boobs in fountains, haikus. Especially sad I missed out on the haikus. Good week.

  2. You guys, this week my roomate is out of town and left in my possession THE KEY to his Ninja 300…which was aaaaaaaalmost the highlight of my week :D

  3. So I’m currently in Cambodia with the Oaktree Foundation whom I volunteer for, and just got back to my guest house with a friend to drink our weight in hydrolytes because we’re feeling a bit under with the heat and/or possibly early dengue fever after some sneaky mosquito bites
    I came onto Facey B and was informed by a friend that I had received a comment award

    AS and electrolytes are the best!

    • Also, we’re staying in Siem Reap and were shopping in the night markets two days ago and there was a drag show going on! It made me so happy.

      The trip I’m on is primarily educational, and one of the organisations we’re talking to and I’m chairing a meeting for is the Cambodian Centre for Human Rights, who do a lot of work to further the position of GLBTQ people within Cambodian society. I’m really excited to talk to them about this.
