The Comment Awards Are Warming Up To November

Good day, cuddle buddies!

This historic week in the ‘straddleverse marked the return of Autostraddle Book Club as well as A-Camp Recamps! Yep, we’re reading Blue Is The Warmest Color and reliving life on the snowy slopes of Alpine Meadows, where strip spelling bees and bear costumes are the norm.

Then Maddie taught us how to queer college tours and Vikki shared another story from her life as an unstoppably extraordinary lesbian mom. Did you know that Fun Home is now a musical? A damn good one, according to RachelTiny Pineapple had the best day ever and (speaking of funny-looking produce) kohlrabi has more uses than you think. And Anna’s DIY terrarium could be just the thing to cheer you up this winter.
