The Comment Awards Are Making It Work

Welcome to Friday, blueberries! Yesterday I took my vacuum cleaner apart and put it back together again. It works now and I feel like a wizard. How’s your week going?

This week Vanessa showed us how to make a clothesline frame (she’s obsessed with this craft and you should be too), Crystal interviewed LA band Playboy School  and Cara broke down the queer history of “queer”. Oh, and Lizz wants you to dress like Ellen Page and have sex like it’s the 90s.

Also, the time has come for you to help someone attend A-Camp or apply for a campership yourself! Hopefully this gallery of queer girls in the world in 2012 and the Shane McCutcheon playlist will tide you over until may. Also these words from fellow ‘straddlers…
