The Comment Awards Are Smooching Stephanie Beatriz on Primetime

Hello, my friends, my pals, lights of my life! Did you see this yet? (Spoilers for Brooklyn 99). I haven’t actually seen the episode yet, I’m saving it for tonight, but it isn’t every night a show on NBC starts to look like the writers have been reading No Filter, and I AM VERY, VERY HERE FOR IT. Cameron Esposito was the first entertainer I ever saw go into a straight space and queer it, to the point where the white straight cis dude patrons looked more and more uncomfortable and I could just feel the space I had to breathe expanding. It was a profound experience, especially for someone who was newly out at the time, and I’m just so thrilled to see Cameron guest starring on a primetime network show!

This week, Reneice made baked brie. Omg.

Mackenzie wrote about the power and heart of Queer Eye‘s Black Girl Magic episode.

Rachel wants you to ask a real person whom you’ve met before on a date IN REAL LIFE and I am not okay.

I did not know this was happening and now I’m super excited! Ellen Page and Lauren Morelli’s “Tales of the City” Is Maybe the Gay Reboot We Actually Need in 2019.

In No Filter, Lena Waithe is still dreamy AF, and Kehlani is still pregnant.

Gentleman Jack is on its way, and you’re not ready.

Meg’s got our queer tarotscopes, and I am not prepared to talk about how much she just needs to @ me next time!

And then there were your comments!

  1. The only reason I know it’s Friday is the Comment Awards are here ! What an infernal week.

    Thank you QG for making my day brighter by bringing me these tidbits of joy.

  2. I hadn’t seen that deleted_account comment. So good.
    Also great job with the comment names this week, QG

  3. That skincare routine tho!! 😅 I feel way seen. For a good part of my high school/early college years, I would just dip a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and swipe it across my face to “clean” my skin. I thought the stinging sensation was a good sign Lol like “ah yes my pores are burning from being detoxified!”

      • I abruptly stopped this routine at age 20 after I told a makeup artist about it, and she gasped and said “What?? Do you want to look like you’re 88 when you’re only 28?!” 😭 I felt super embarrassed and also defiant bc 28 seemed so far away and I thought maybe she was exaggerating a little. Reader, I am now 31 and I look exactly on par for my tired old age I think.

      • my skin care routine is…a moisturizer that was $3.99 at trader joe’s, washing with water in the shower, and sometimes a sugar scrub with actual sugar crystals from the sugarbowl, lol

        • My routine is Dove soap and moisturizer that has SPF protection.

          A sugar scrub sounds super fancy to me.

          • oh my gosh you soap your face? i’ve never soaped my face and i feel like it would be so drying? but so many people do!

            the sugar just scrubs off the dry skin, my skin is ALWAYS dry.

  4. What fantastic comments! Awards all round well done.

    Also, I’m gonna go classic and ask a food question. Why does ice cream taste so much better you’ve swirled it around your bowl with a spoon? It’s literally the same ice cream. Thoughts?

    • I wrote that poem ’bout that cat,
      I wrote that poem ’bout that hat.
      Could I, should I, write some more?
      Could I, should I, write galore?

      Put hamantaschen in a box,
      put hamantaschen in your socks.
      Do hamantaschen go with lox?
      Dry hamantaschen are like rocks.

      I should make some with some jam.
      (Probably should not use spam.)
      (Also note: AVOID THE HAM.)
      My hamantaschen will be glam!

      I’ll make the kind called “made at home” –
      that’s a must for this here poem,
      for in that one is “1 egg” seen
      and, of course, it must be green.

      MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA thank you all I love you goodnight!

  5. What?! A comment award? For being obssesed with “Carol”? I knew one day it would pay off to compare any- and everything to this masterpiece. ;)
