Hello, you perfect people! We’re five days in to a whole new year! I just want to say that YOU ARE DOING SO WELL! You are a brave and wondrous creature and I love that you’re here. We’ll do this year together.
This week, Ellen Page and Emma Portner interpretive danced right into marital bliss. I’ve actually got an exclusive photo from their marriage, which I am thrilled to share right here!
Riese did this huge thing for us! I think you should read it! In 2017, Lesbian and Bisexual TV Characters Did Pretty OK, and That’s a Pretty Big Deal.
I continue to not believe in horoscopes, but also this one was spot on, because Corina’s a genius, and starting off your new year with a brilliant, insightful pep talk can’t be a bad idea.
If we are what we read, this is who you are, Straddlers!
Mey’s got all the comics we need to put in our faces in 2018.

THE PITCH-SLAP AWARD
this was originally a less self-congratulatory gif but for some reason the site didn’t like it, so now we get this one <3
IT’S PERFECT QUEERGIRL.
Just like you.
Congrats EP award winners!
Still not persuaded that Emma Portner is not being also played by Ellen Page; next up she will have a fling with Emmeline Pankhurst whom she is photographed with at protest marches, but still be seen hanging out with Edith Prim, her bff the homebody.
All of whom will be revealed to just be aspects of herself in the upcoming arthouse flick “Eternal self of the loving mind”.
“Still not persuaded that Emma Portner is not being also played by Ellen Page”
Perhaps she is also the reincarnation of Édith Piaf
Yasss I have been thinking about Laura’s comment all week. It is true and good and very deserving of the prestigious U-Haulin’ Award.
As a person who is trying to get their hairstylist to make their hair look like if early/mid-80s George Michael and Kurt Russell had a gay baby and that gay baby was Steve from Stranger Things, I v. much appreciate this comment award. Thank you.
Thank you, QG. I’m truly honored.
I want to thank my girlfriend, my family, my friends and all my switch sisters…
PD: I want more butches on TV; I want to see someone who looks a bit like me.
You deserve the award and also more butches on TV
Still sad about The Fosters… and if they add Brandon to the spinoff I’ll be so pissed. Who are we kidding, of course he will be the third kid added to the spinoff
I know! Alas, since it’s a teen network, the moms were always kind of on borrowed time, I think.
but we’ll always have them in our hearts
Because it’s not where you come from, it’s where you belong
It’s so unfair that Kids always get everything… there are no shows for us non-supernatural adult lesbians
Next on Freeform: The show you’ve all been waiting for: Non-Supernatural Adult Lesbians!
It could like the Big Bang Theory! Just with Lesbians and a Sarah McLachlan Soundtrack!
I’ve spontaneously written like three episodes in my head already in the last couple of minutes.
1. The New Roomate: Will the younger, hipster Vegan be able to mesh with the traditional Vegetarian household?
2.Catnap:Dating a girl with a cat despite having an allergy to cats
3.The Set Up: Being set up with the boss’ single lesbian sister who is single and gay, but otherwise impossible, but still smitten with our non-interested heroine, who doesn’t know how to get out of date number three without endangering her employment situation.
I would watch it and fan girl about it
“SHEEP”ISHLY DEVOTED to a shearling coat this ties in my heart with AS Brittani’s joke from like four years ago about this one bad pizza that was like a thousand wookiees i.e. too chewy.
ties for first place in my heart; i should perhaps clarify lol
REY YOU HONOR ME
My excitement at winning a comment award is only tempered by my girlfriend saying “I don’t even know who Devon Sawa is.” You win some you lose some. Although maybe I actually win cause now we can watch Now and Then!!
