Hello my loves! I do not know how to explain the past month of my life to you. I had maybe the most transformative A-Camp that I’ve ever had, and then I came home and slid right into a chute of family trips, commitments and obligations that will not let up until August! I am so tired and so happy and so very, very gay! I am re-writing songs from Frozen to be topical to my life! I am in a bit of a loopy, liminal space, but I’m not even mad about it! Sometimes, maybe, hopefully, transformation comes out of the spaces where you don’t have the bandwidth to self-censor, and I’m hoping that’s the space I’m moving towards.
Also, anyway, Autostraddle absolutely killed it this week:
To L And Back posted their very first live episode, filmed at A-Camp! Some of the oohs and ahhs and laughter might be mine! Some of it might be yours!
Courtney gave us some advice about getting back together with one’s ex, and the first heading is “listen: maybe don’t,” and I have never felt more seen in my entire fucking life.
Tiffany Cabán, an out Latina running on a platform of restorative justice, just won the Democratic primary for District Attorney in Queens, and predictably (I melt when faced with extraordinarily competent people), I am IN LOVE.
YVONNE WROTE THIS and I think you should read it: What the Border Wall Destroys.
This conversation on sexuality and polyamory between three generations, including Willow Smith, was truly something.
This took my breath away: Snapshots of Pride Across Time.
And, finally: ONE DAY AT A TIME HAS BEEN SAVED IT’S BEEN SAVED IT’S GREAT IT’S FINE I’M FINE.
