Good day, graham crackers! Many thanks to Vanessa for taking over last week while I was getting sunburned in an unfamiliar latitude. Isn’t she the best?
The days of summer may be numbered but Lizz knows there’s still time to take your special lady on a summer day date. Pro-tip: Try impressing her with your pineapple-carving skills or knowledge of German gender assignment law.
We also had an Autostraddle first, a wedding proposal! No only that, it was just about the cutest, most-romantic proposal ever. (Source: I’m pretty sure Vanessa is still squeeing over it.) We also introduced a new, must-read column series “True Stories of Unstoppably Extraordinary Lesbian Moms”. Do yourself a favor and check it out ASAP, possibly while listening to your new favorite queercore band, Aye Nako. And did you know that A-Camper and poet extraordinaire Ashley Catharine is still taking the east coast by storm? Check out her most recent dispatch from the road and find out if she’ll be in your city soon.
