See a comment that needs to be here? Let me know! Tag me [at] queergirl.
Heather Hogan’s original album and Chandra’s remix are both worth putting on repeat
I still maintain that any article headlined “Go on a real date with a real gay woman” that then does not follow up on the offer is false advertising.
What’s a “date” also what is a “real gay woman,” please advise Sally, I’ve been in my house for 11 months
Haha I never know the themes in advance but I hereby decree that THE COMMENT AWARDS KNOW THAT LOVE IS NOT A LIE
Love is not a lie, but some of us lie for love.
Now that I think of it lots of us lay for love too, but let’s not get into That debate again…
i missed Chandra’s tribute/Heather’s “love” letters, so i’m glad they were noted here. i was not in doubt, but feel more certain that love is not a lie, though perhaps finicky and truant…
