The Comment Awards Are High On Pride

How goes it, cowgirls and cowbois? With Pride season fully upon us you’re probably busy making plans to attend every queer celebration in the tri-state area this month, right? What’s that? You’re skipping the parties and hauling boxes to your main lady’s place instead?  May the queer co-habitation force be with you. (And if you want to buy yourself some housewarming gifts, Autostraddle’s Babeland party in New York is a good start.)

Guess what else happened in gay this week? Jenny Owen Youngs came out and talked to Autostraddle about it. So did Design*Sponge’s Grace Bonney! Get excited because she’s also  maybe/hopefully/probably coming to A-Camp in October!

Is that enough to jump start your weekend? What more do you want? Fairer in tax laws, cissexist marriage loopholes, comment awards? Done!

  1. “Congratulations, etc. etc., crying on the inside.” — the best sentence ever written and my inner monologue every time I check my Facebook.

  2. Ladies of the Joan Jett sing a long, you were brilliant
    The Going to the Chapel, Gonna Fuck With Your Gender Norms Award ? Also brilliant

  3. I feel it necessary to admit that I stole the “how do you feel about rock and roll” line from Deanne Smith.

  4. Dear Diary,

    Today was a good day because I was mentioned in a comment award, wow, my thoughts are always in the gutter, a sexy gutter with glitter.

    Rawr and leg-hugs,


    • If you named a gay bar “Sexy Gutter (with Glitter)” I would party there all the time. ALL THE TIME.
