Hello! I finished She-Ra last night, and… holy heart of Etheria, the tears I shed! I AM SO GLAD THAT KIDS TODAY HAVE GAY CARTOONS TO WATCH. I’m so glad that WE have gay cartoons to watch! Also: what am I gonna do now that it’s over?!
This week, Allie wrote a perfect thing: The Four Robots You Meet in Quarantine.
The team talked about what they wish they’d known before having sex for the first time – these are important!
Bailey introduced us to the creators of CuTie.BIPoC Fest, who spoke about the incredible importance of non-white queer spaces (and the illustrations! are! everything!).
Christina helped out a person whose friend really needs to see a therapist.
This was astounding: Anatomy Of A Mango: Skin.
Isabella spoke to A. Andrews about their new book, A Quick and Easy Guide to Sex and Disibility. I am so excited for this book, pals!
And finally, if you’re not an A+ member yet, you’re probably going to want to become one, because the team just got VERY vulnerable and honest in the latest A+ roundtable!
Then there were your comments!

See a comment that needs to be here? Tag me! I’m [at] queergirl.
Like Sally I too would love an All Cruise edition of TIRTIL
Could we have it on an actual cruise ? ‘Cause that’s what I thought the original proposal was, and now I can’t let it go.
Haha yaay, thank you! I’m always glad to see examples of my both/and approach to bisexuality. Plus, cute pets <3
Similarly, I recommend the Shonen Knife song "Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches" as a bisexual anthem, because it is about liking ice cream, cookies, AND ice cream cookie sandwiches (as well as all other types of Sweet Candy Power) rather than having to choose just one: https://youtu.be/1MEFxFMX4Kk
Also, congrats on finishing She-Ra!! The tears I have shed indeed. Once I finished it I went back and watched season 5 all over again, but as we know, my Catradora fandom knows no bounds.
I did really enjoy Kipo and the Age of the Wonderbeasts, though! When in doubt, trust a Heather Hogan recommendation. It’s got some similar vibes and very cute gay moments. No big spoilers, but I will say that there are CATS IN FLANNEL
Thank you for the award! After re-reading my comment, I want to clarify I didn’t mean “sex dreams” in the “series of thoughts, images, or emotions occurring during sleep” way, but rather as “strongly desired goals or purposes” for the future of my sex life. I feel like the first meaning would be weird and imply something like “Dani Janae I’m gonna use your life experiences as sleeptime sex dreams.” Anyway, I hope that makes sense and thank you!
I’m honored to win but all the credit really belongs to rhythmic gymnasts. I watch them every Olympics and promise myself I’m not gonna freak out and then one of them pulls out that goddamn ribbon and moves like she doesn’t have any bones and I fricken lose it.
Some great comments this week. Well done award winners, you earned it.
