The Comment Awards Are Splitting Wood With a Sword Like A Lesbian Avenger

Hey hi hello it’s Friday! And I have great news: last night, my dog Milo met a balloon:

A three-image collage of my small white terrier, Milo, contemplating a pink balloon

…And then he popped it. But what is life, if not a series of ephemeral delights?

This week, Nico used an app to communicate with the Other Side.

A.Tony knows that sometimes we need bad TV in our lives. Good news: Tubi TV is Black, queer, AND bad!

Drew and Shelli Nicole are at Sundance, and they’ve been bringing us so many amazing reviews! Shelli Nicole wished that Anne Hathaway’s Eileen was queerer, while Drew loved the nuance and imagination of L’immensità, a trans coming of age story set in 1970s Italy. Bad Behaviour was replete with mommi issues, and It’s Only Life, After All did justice to the moving history of the Indigo Girls. I can’t wait to see so many of these!!!

I also loved this, from Dani Janae: “Judas Goat” by Gabrielle Bates Made Me Start Writing Again.

In this week’s You Need Help, KKU helped out a reader who just might be overcomplicating things.

Riese made the L Word: Generation Q infographics that I didn’t know were missing from my life???

Have you seen the Tik Tok Lesbian Lumberjack WITH THE SWORD?

Himani had some thoughts about season 2 of Sort Of.

Niko! Surely Not All of These Chefs Are Tops. I am CACKLING.

And then there were your comments!

On Pop Culture Fix: Reneé Rapp Wants To Be “Bisexual Justin Bieber”:

The 2 M3an 2 Furious Award to Chloe:

Cannot believe the M3gan sequel is not called Meg4n

On Our Charts: Three Generation Q Infographics:

The Gift…and Curse Award to @caitrw and Courtney:

Next season can you create some proposed character / season storyline arc infographics for Marja? It seems like we might benefit from your expertise!

On Sundance 2023: “It’s Only Life After All” Is a Moving Tribute to the Indigo Girls:

The Closer to Fine Award to shira and Kris H:

I discovered the Indigo Girls as a high-schooler in the 90s and before I was out would say “I like it because it’s feminist, it’s not like I’m a lesbian”… Thanks for the review, Drew. Can’t wait to see it.

On Also.Also.Also: Here’s All the Queer-Related Nominations (And Snubs) For This Year’s Oscars:

The Vital Information Award to forawhile:

thank you Nico!!! Like Standing Rock, what is happening at Weelaunee in ATL is for allllll of us. keeping it out of mainstream news is part of the strategy of a handfull of billionaires behind this and the cops who work for them. 70-93% of Atlantans (depending on how the question is asked) support protecting the forest and oppose the militarized police city in the middle of black and brown neighborhoods. by keeping it out of the news, they make the land defenders seem “radical.

On TikTok’s Lesbian Lumberjack Out-Chops Captain America WITH A SWORD:

The Game Changer Award to Andrea_T:

All of my wife’s internet crushes were brunettes until this woman showed up on the scene. She is so powerful.

On Rainbow Reading: Gearing Up for Valentine’s Day With Queer Romance Reads:

The Flaming Locks of Auburn Hair Award to cleo:

OMG. Gay Jolene. I was going to comment on your excellent service reading the new queer romances. And I still am. Thank you. But Gay. Jolene. Fanart.

And on Surely Not All of These Chefs Are Tops:

The They Are Risen Award to Kristana and alchemille:

But if the bottoms win, then they’ll have risen to the top.

And the Lubed Award to Kay:

For your next challenge chefs, oil me like one of your walnut cutting boards.
