Hi there, butterbeans! I need you all to know that my new overalls came in the mail yesterday, and reader, they’re PERFECT. Extremely excited to Free the Waistband all summer long! I highly recommend it!
A-Camp is right around the corner, and all of you weirdos described yourselves in the most glorious ways when you signed up!
I love this queer poetry series from Natalie SO MUCH, and I think you will too!
Vanessa loves you and believes in you and wants you to date in the daylight!
So: what photo will YOU submit to Autostraddle’s 2019 Pride gallery?
I wrote this! I wrote it for you, because Gentleman Jack is the most fun I’ve had with a TV show maybe ever, and because oh BOY did Anne Lister know how to flirt.
Grace Lavery for Autostraddle, writing delicious and amazing things about The Toast, is this a dream?
This lede was so good, I’m going to put it right here again: When a boy rat and a boy aardvark love each other, they get married on public broadcast television.
These Five Black LGBTQ+ Activists Are Literally Saving The Planet, and I am in love with all of them.

Do you think next time I have to fill in an application form and give an example of team work I can talk about the time I worked in a team with other commenters to get over 100 comments so the author of an article would reveal which Taylor Swift lyrics she quoted when sexting someone?
If the application form has a blank space, baby, I’ll write your name
