Hi there, fireflies! Did you join us for Autostraddle’s Pool Party? It’s not too late! AS readers have been asking for a way to pool funds in order to donate A+ memberships to other readers for years, and now there’s a way! Whether you’d like to donate or apply for membership, come on in! The water’s fine, and your swimsuit situation is exactly whatever you want it to be.
This week, The L Word: Generation Q finally came to a (dare I say sputtering) end, and Riese was right there with us, feeling our joy and our pain!
Speaking of The L Word: Generation Q, this is a must-read, by The Speakeasy: On Blackness and “The L Word: Generation Q”.
The team wrote about the first gay things they saw on the Internet. This was a DELIGHTFUL time capsule.
What do you do when you’re closeted, and your nearest and dearest keep asking if you’ve “found a man?” You write to Autostraddle, of course!
Important, necessary, iconic: 15 Queer Woman and Non-Binary Babes Who Wore Top Hats Better Than Any Willy Wonka.
