Hi there, hash browns! Have you been enjoying Diner Week? I’ve spent the whole week full of nostalgia, craving comfort food. It’s a delicious place to be!
This week in diners, Katie brought us scenes from New Jersey, Lily wrote about opening up in the north, I traveled back to Sophomore year1999, Ro took us to the iconic Standee’s in Chicago, Sa’iyda reminisced about Staten Island, Dani Janae got sober at Eat n Park, and Nicole perfected bisexual swagger on the Canadian border. Sometimes people say this to be bitchy, but I don’t know another way to say this, and I mean it with all sincerity: life is a rich tapestry!!
Also this week, Nicole saw They/Them, and wanted more from it.
Abeni read The Bruising of Qilwa, and loved it.
Ro helped out a 13 year-old who’s ready to explore a butch identity.
Alex brought us an autistic reading of Robin Buckley from Stranger Things.
Kayla reviewed the League of Their Own reboot, which is very fun, very gay, and also digs into the racism players faced in the real-life league.
Samantha Irby was a guest on this week’s Wait, Is This A Date?!
Finally, if you haven’t joined A+ yet, this is the time to do it — Dani Janae interviewed her brothers for Things I’ve Never Asked You, and then there was THIS, from Laneia: I’m a Lesbian and I Want to Hate-Fuck These 9 Men So Hard Their Kindergarten Teachers Forget Their Own Names.
And then there were your comments!

It’s true! I’ve been traveling for over a month and that piece made me miss home hard. Pass the Loganberry!
I need a pin that says “The ‘No Crying But Definitely Screaming in Baseball’ Award” 😍
I usually don’t write comments at all, I don’t have time for it, but today I decided to do so because I really want to tell you to thank you.
Very Nice artcile
