Hi there, sunbeams! We made it through the week!!
This week for The Drop, Shelli Nicole and Dani Janae talked about Jenna Wortham and Kimberly Drew’s Black Futures.
Have you been catching Drew’s fantastic Sundance 2021 coverage? She watched 4 Feet High, went to a panel with Rose Troche and Cheryl Dunye, watched Patti Harrison shine in Together Together, wrote about the Casey Affleck-shaped problem with The World To Come, and more! Also, Carmen wrote about My Name is Pauli Murray, a film that could have shone as brightly as Pauli themselves, if the film hadn’t, for instance, misgendered them throughout.
For this week’s retro review, Heather watched The Truth About Jane, my very favorite Lifetime movie about The Terrible Secret Burden Of Being A Teenage Lesbian.
Nic’s Batwoman reviews have been going strong, and this week Ryan put on her new batsuit!
In No Filter, Sara Ramirez continues to steal my heart.
Queer! Tiktok! Babes! (This is so much better than when I tried to do Tiktok and it just showed me people making weird crockpot “keto-friendly” recipes that involved actual bricks of cream cheese and so, so many chicken breasts.)

All of these comments and award titles are SO. GOOD.
And I am beyond thrilled to receive the visibility matters award. I think that one would sound pretty good on my LinkedIn.
THIS IS A TRUE HONOR.
Congrats Becca! Your comment made me giggle-snort with glee.
Indeed, and the best part is that it’s the official height of good manners – just ask Miss Manners! – to write a thank you note that gushes over what you got with the money, that you were so excited to be able to get and wouldn’t have gotten on your own and gosh golly gee thanks ever so much auntie and uncle! :)
ENJOY THE BOOK BECCA
I didn’t think that anybody really saw that comment.
Even the sturgeon and the ray can appreciate your comments. (You know how they are when they get the urge and start to play.)
Maybe you have trouble heading to bed at a good time, or you can never find your car keys before heading to work.
