The Comment Awards Love You From Across The Universe

​​Hello there, weekday warriors! This week was pretty okay in gay. Jane Lynch got a star on the Walk of Fame, Raven-Symoné and AzMarie continued to be the cutest ever and Janelle Monae’s new album started streaming online. Also, butch clothing line Marimacho invited you to come celebrate their New York Fashion Week debut (not to be confused with LA Fashion Week) on Saturday.

But wait! There’s more surprisingly super news that shouldn’t still be surprising us in 2013. NASA’s astronaut candidate class is half women this year and at least six children’s clothing companies want to do more than dress young girls like “pink glitterbombs“.

Finally, Vanessa baked a honey cake for Rosh Hashanah (and you can too), Kate made a playlist to soothe your long distance love sads and Brittani premiered a brand new episode of Words With Girls.
