Good morning, shamrocks! We’re got just a few days left to celebrate Autostraddle’s 13th birthday with a membership or donation! For my 13th birthday, I had a party where I received eight (8) identical gift sets from Bath and Body Works, my friends and I sang along to Chumbawamba, and my goth friend gave my Christian friend a whole entire makeover, complete with black eyeliner, a black velvet top from my closet, and a choker. How did YOU celebrate 13?
This week, Carmen would like to know: have you considered 90s Angelina Jolie?
Much like my actual adolescence, 13 Going on 30 was…kinda gay, actually.
Another spring, another set of crafts Vanessa didn’t try during the winter but will probably definitely get to next year!
Oh WOW, this resonated: Being or Becoming Real.
Em helped a reader who can’t quite find their vibe.
Yashwina spoke to Melissa Febos about her new book, Bodywork. This was so good!!!
There has never been a better time to join A+, because you! Too! Could set up the brackets for Autostraddle’s March Madness!
Hahaha oh wow pals we are so gay: The Gayest Things You Did at 13. This list will give me life FOREVER.
