The Comment Awards Are Making Eyes at You Across the Dance Floor

Hello cyber-galactic superstars!

This week we remembered the radical transgender pioneers who came before us, and were reminded that their work has paved the way for much of our freedom and visibility today, though there’s still work to do.

We learned some valuable lessons about how to cope with tragedy, and how to handle loss and depression. Seriously, we reflected on some of the most difficult issues of our lives. But hey, it’s Friday, we made it — and check out how dapper we look.

Brittani found us an inventive lesbian movie that we can watch when we enjoy time at home this weekend instead of using Lyft after happy hour. Besides, we have so much Fan Fiction to catch up on over the break. While we’re at it, maybe an L Word binge wouldn’t hurt, either.
