The Comment Awards Are Making Kristy Gay

A small, brown and white dog peeking over their laptop screen, with a caption that says "Hey did you see that comment?!"

Hi, loves! What to say in a week like this? I hope that every single one of you is safe today.

This week, Marwa wrote about the pandemic and healthy queer love.

T Kira Māhealani Madden for Autostraddle?! Read this.

Drew reflected on Hedwig and the Angry Inch for its 20th anniversary.

This was SUCH a fantastic roundtable: 5 Sex Workers On The OnlyFans Policy Flip-Flop.

When the going gets rough, it’s so good to know that Shelli is here for us with another installment of FYP!

GOOD MORNING to Niecy Nash and Jessica Betts, who celebrated their first anniversary in style this week!

This was so good and pure and happy and hot? 100 Things to Try When I Have a Vagina.

Sara Ramirez is on LEX! This is not a drill!

And then there were your comments!

On No Filter: Simply the Betts! Happy First Anniversary to Niecy Nash, Jessica Betts, and the Greatest Day of Our Gay Lives:

The Deep Dive Award to Cecily and MsAnon:

She is *underwater* in a *diving helmet* with her *WIG ON* and I SHALL STAN FOREVER!

On Caesar Salad: Anamnesis:

The Eat, Write, Love Award to Vanessa:

I love you, thank you for writing this and thank you for feeding me that Caesar salad. 💜

On Pop Culture Fix: Sarah Paulson Agrees the “American Crime Story” Fat Suit Wasn’t a Great Idea:

The Kristy’s Krushing Award to Charlotte:

They’ve gotta make Kristy gay this season, right? First episode is an adaptation of ‘Kristy and the Snobs’ and I just feel that her conflict with Shannon would be so perfect as enemies to friends to crushes! Kristy Thomas is gay and I know this IN MY BONES.

On What The Pandemic Taught Me About Healthy Queer Love:

The Smitten Kitten Award to Manzanita and jetlag:

I am so smitten by this!! Is being second- hand smitten a thing? Because my heart is so fluttery and so full!

On Boobs on Your Tube: In Its Season Finale, iCarly Proves It’s Not Your Mama’s Nickelodeon (Thank Goodness):

The Deep Roots Award to :):

A mom here feeling very attacked (and also happy for the youngins). I’ll have you know that Nickelodeon was also very gay in my time, too—at least in my head. Pretty sure Brad was one of my roots. Clarissa was out there ignoring the male gaze. And I think I even saw the beginnings of a mean femme top in rugrats’ Angelica.

On 50 Questions I Asked Siri When My iPhone Was Joyriding Alone in an Uber All Day:

The Burning Question Award to Cleo:

I’m on the edge of my seat. Were you reunited?!?!!!

And on The L Word Generation Q Episode 204 Recap: But This Lake House Has No Lake:

The Family Feud Award to gal:

Poignant Carmen and Dana mentions, both in one episode… they really should’ve put one of those trigger warnings before the episode. I was not emotionally prepared for this episode. So Micah is going to have to rein in Bette, Tina, and Carrie during a family therapy session?? Oh, Micah… may the odds be ever in your favor.
