The Comment Awards Are The Odd Girl Out


Hi friends! Did you have a happy Halloween? The tiniest ever trick-or-treaters came to my door — a two year-old zombie who wasn’t even steady on her feet yet said “fank oo!” when I dropped candy into her bucket — and it was so cute and perfect I died. Now I’m a ghost, which is very on trend this Halloween, so that’s just fine.

This week, Reneice made roasted pear butter in Femme Brûlée, and it sounds AMAZING.

Just in time for Halloween, Rachel brought us 15 horror films with queer women – and they aren’t psycho killers (mostly)!

Did you dress up for Halloween? Vanessa wants pics of your amazing costumes!

Heather’s been back at work for like two seconds and already, she brings us this amazing list: 22 Lesbian, Bisexual and Trans Women Athletes Who Changed the Game.

Riese wrote this, it is absolutely everything, don’t forget your box of tissues.
