The Comment Awards Wants To Hug Everyone

Whoa! This week, y’all. Just whoa. So many feelings pouring out of so many beautiful minds and hearts – many of them right here on Autostraddle dot com.

If you’re still reeling, and who isn’t, feel free to share your feelings on the open thread.

Some Friends of Autostraddle shared their feelings as queer Latinx people on Orlando. Mey and Cecilia took it one step further and made a space for all queer Latinx voices.

Laura took our understanding of gun violence to the next level because that’s how she rolls.

It’s days like these when I’d rather just play board games with Ali.

Molly went to LA Pride and vigil and took pictures for us.

But on a lighter note…

Orange is the New Black is comes out today. AND the new A+ podcast dropped this week. Now all the A+ members know what kind of underpants the editors wear. And before you ask, yes, knowing what underpants your bosses are wearing is super weird.
