Hi, fireflies! Did you enjoy last weekend’s Valentine’s Day gift to us all? The Love Is/Is Not A Lie content was truly top-notch. Love is pretty much a lie on TV, and celebrities quite often break up; but then on the other hand, there’s Vanessa’s deeply personal experience, and Heather! And! Stacy! My heart has been very full all week.
Also this week, Bishakh brought us what is perhaps my very favorite installment of Scenes From a Gender.
Drew wrote about Water Lilies and that precious pang of queer adolescence.
We are truly blessed by Riese’s mind (and her databases): 47 Straight Actresses Who Play Gay A Lot.
The team also ranked ’80s and ’90s sitcom characters by lesbianism. My god, the backward hats alone!
And oh, hey! Did you know Autostraddle is fundraising? Read Rachel and Abeni’s stories, learn more about the team’s visions for Autostraddle’s future, and consider making a gift or signing up for A+ if it’s within your budget! You all have been GREAT at showing up and we are so, so thankful for you, always.
And then there were your comments!
