The Comment Awards Are Kissing by the Side of the Road


Hi, loves! I just watched that Hayley Kiyoko/Kehlani video, and WOW. The future is so queer!

This week, Reneice appeased our camp cravings with a blueberry galette.

Cameron kinda married all of us.

This is so relevant to my interests: Mario Kart Characters Ranked in Terms of Queerness.


Mey wrote about Heavy Vinyl! My copy just shipped, I am so excited to finally read this!

The Sex 101 series is just so incredibly helpful. This week: Buying a harness!


And then there were your comments!

On Monday Roundtable: Look At Our Stuff (We Collect), Isn’t It Neat?

The Split Take Award to Caitlin:

carrie i have that exact same banana shirt! i love it and my friends hate it because i have an entire collection of puns for when people compliment it “hey nice shirt!” “thanks i find it really…aPEELing. sorry, the jokes just SLIP out.” “i’m never speaking to you again” “that’s fair. i’ll go ahead and SPLIT now”

On 21 Times “Killing Eve” Depicted Lesbian Relationship Scenarios With Dead-On Accuracy:

The Hero We Deserve Award to Gilbert:

Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s persistance in having storylines of women (talking about) masturbating on the BBC makes my heart soar. What a fucking hero.

And the Napping House Award to Riese:


On “Supergirl” Episode 320 Recap: Run, Alex, Run:

The Alternative Lifestyle Haircut Award to fridax (I had to post this because LOOK AT HER HAIR! LOOK AT HER BOWTIE!):

Image of Chyler Leigh looking awfully...ALTERNATIVE, with an undercut and rainbow bow-tie

On No Filter: Bury Me With This Picture of Janelle Monáe and Michelle Obama:

The All In The Family Award to M-Rex and Kristana:

M-Rex: I want to print out all of these photos and put them on my fridge and pretend they’re my family?? / Kristana: But aren't they?

On Pop Culture Fix: Lesbian Ad Finally Convinces Laneia To Go to Las Vegas, Maybe:

The Lez Girls Award to Carmen SanDiego:

If that commercial isn’t titled “Viva Lez Vegas” that’s a major missed opportunity

And on Hayley Kiyoko and Kehlani’s “What I Need” Video Takes Gay Agenda to Beautiful New Heights:

The Olderstraddler Award to Denise:

Thoughts I had watching this video: “Awww, they’re wearing their seatbelts.” “Did he card them? They do not look old enough.” “I almost wrecked my Jeep once because I had .my hand down my girlfriends pants and wasn’t paying attention, to the highway. That was irresponsible.” “Do not get in that truck!” “I’m old.”

And the Is This Real Life? Award to Dazzlyn:

I always knew life had more meaning. 20gayteen and everywhere is shaking. Wow. If you had told me five years ago that girls singing to girls would become a norm in our media, I would have said thank you for the fantasy. And now it’s a reality. We deserve our own songs and stories too. Thank you to these artists for making us seen and represented. We are no longer invisible in music videos.
