The Comment Awards Are Ready For Summer

Greetings and summer salutations, straddlers! I hope the sun is shining where you are. It’s been an eventful week so let’s get to it!

On Tuesday Riese started rolling out the recamps which are chock-full of bears, queers and tears, naturally. Gabby offered some dating advice and Lizz told us how to dress like basketball star Brittney Griner. Then Carmen gave Amelia Earhart the idol worship treatment and Brittani broke down why Miley Cyrus’s new video is queerer than paying for a Tegan and Sara album with $2 bills.

Oh, and did you hear that the President of ex-gay therapy organization Exodus International issued an apology to the gay community? Yep, that happened.

Here’s what you had to say this week!
