The Comment Awards, The Fresh Maker

Hello Heartthrobs!

AfterEllen is shutting down. It’s pretty sad. I wonder what Ellen thinks about all this.

But on a happier note there are at least 22 lesbian or bisexual heiresses to learn and know about.

Part two of women’s magazine covers reimagined for queer women is hot off the presses.

If you own a television set, you’ll probs be interested in the Gay Girl’s Guide to Fall TV.

Some super gay ladies won Emmy awards.

Also Native American fashion! And Comments!

  1. “…when I was coming out to myself, back home in South America.”
    Well, we’ve narrowed down where in the world she is.

  2. I commented on the original Transparent post when it was made, but it’s really ableist language and I’m disappointed it was chosen to be featured. :(

  3. Gooo Carmen!

    P.S.Blackmar, I had no idea until this comment award section.
    *quietly relieving you of that award*

  4. Carmen Sandiego, congratulations on cleaning up in the comment awards this week! You earned each and every accolade! Your work during the AE comment thread was nothing short of stunning!

  5. I mean my bankrolling comment was definitely partly inspired by Carmen SanDiego’s enthusiastic fundraising efforts, so you should probably just give my award to her too.

  6. OMG You guys. I am humbled. Truly. Thank you for this.
    Here’s to After Ellen, may Evolve Media meet the same end soon.
