This week, we celebrated Autostraddle’s 12th birthday, and what a party it’s been! It’s a great time to join A+ for the Birthday AMA, Riese wants to know how well you remember all the gay news of 2009, Carmen’s got the perfect celebrity date just WAITING for you, and the team wants to tell you what they’d say to their tween selves!
Wynonna Earp is back, and Valerie Anne is back in her most natural recapping habitat! These are always so good!
Got cycles? You might want to organize your life around them.
Kayla watched Moxie so we don’t have to. (I wanted to love this! Alas.)
Dani Janae had great advice for a Straddler who’s having trouble being out in public.
Shelli Nicole’s FYP is a treat every single week, and the absolute best way to engage with Tiktok!
Jai reviewed For Us and For You, an a m a z i n g looking “anthology of trans poetics.”
And then there were your comments!

That comment/ story by Alisha was absolute magic!
I must protest that Snaelle deserves equal share in that Equalizer award because her reply made me L A U G H
oops! fixed! :-*
I am just honoured to be on the same page as Jen Richards
But also now I’m envisaging a movie where Jen Richards plays a character who keeps just trying to go on a date with this cute woman only for it to be interrupted EVERY TIME by Queen Latifah’s character whose mission happens to end up in the same place…culminating in a motorbike chase scene through the Natural History Museum.
Wow, what an honor! I guess all I can say is, thank you for helping me find my root!
Now if you ever come across her again, you can smoothly strike up a conversation about how an online quiz once told you you were destined to go on a date with her
So many good comments. I can’t believe I missed the Jen Richards comment – thank goodness for the comment awards.
