The Comment Awards Are Gal Pal-ing Around

Hello, organic orange slices!

This week we stocked the store with scissoring tank tops and wrote a first date guide for gals who want pals (or maybe just want to discover new foods?).

Then Heather curated some OITNB fanfiction sans Alex and Piper. But Alex fans can still get their fix from the new memoir by Catherine Cleary Wolters, the inspiration for the character.

Also, check out the brand new mini-book from Autostraddle and this LA Pride recap And just try not to smile while watching this A-Camp video made by Djuan Trent!

  1. jsyk dannielle said in an email about the pride party announcement post “I MADE A GREAT COMMENT”and so i immediately hopped over to the post to affirm this greatness. that’s what i do, because i care about people

    • Is this a German Netflix thing or does everywhere have a category dedicated to Gal Pals? Didn’t take them long to figure out my interests….

        • yeah categories vary depending countries. French netflix doesn’t even have a “Gay and Lesbian Movies” category! boooh.

          • The Algorithm was like hmmm… you have been marathoning a show about devious American female felons and a show about British nuns devoting their lives to delivering impoverished babies, what commonality can we possibly draw here to work out your interests..?
            Result – both are about a bunch of female identified people living and working together without a dude being a significant character… GAL PALS!

    • I think we all need an AS version of Netflix.
      Lesbian break-up Drama
      Popular on Netflix – (Believable Trans* Characters played by Trans* Actors)
      Queer Latina Comedy
      Non-ableist Gal Pals
      QPOC Female Cop Buddy Shows
      Inclusive Spirituality
      Madagascar Women’s Sport
      Women who were raised by wolves

      …my lunch break is over, so add your own!

  2. Truly honored

    I’m also Meeting the Parents tonight but I think I’ll decline the scissoring tank top this time
