The Comment Awards Are Psyched for the New Season of Orange Is the New Black

Greetings queerios!

This week started out with celebrating Autostraddle’s 6th birthday, giving away a bunch A+ memberships and a massive Q+A session with staff.

The party is still going on as we prepare for the Staycation Spectacular this weekend. Are you ready? There are so many things you could make and eat and wear and do (including you)!

Also this week, Alia Shawkat joined forces with her doppelgänger, Ilana, to queer up “Broad City”, the Lesbians Who Tech’s 2nd annual conference was bigger and better this year and a new report gave insight into the economic disparities impacting LGBT women. Finally, Bitch Planet should probably be your next comic purchase. Wouldn’t it look so cute cozied up to issues of Lumberjanes on your bookself?

  1. Hello, I’ve thought of and also forgotten several questions which I’ll be saving up approx six years til the next question-a-thon.

    Minor update: I think we’re making real progress on the ugly bathrobe issue now, as my scienceofficerladywife foolishly made a bet about a trivial thing that resulted in a begrudging commitment to rid us of said uglyrobe, which I think we can all take as a victory for the Autostraddle community.
