Hello cozy cucumbers! What’s making you happy this week?

This week Riese compiled some perfect snippets of 1 star reviews of lesbian bars and Kate gave a spot-on assessment of things you learn when co-habitating with your activity partnerRachel continued to recap “Transparent” and share our dislike of Josh with the fury of a thousand suns.

This roundtable discussed coming out to friends and dapperQ took on Vermont style just in time for the inevitably snowy winter. Maddie’s amazing family (full of comment award winners, mind you) talked about this book for parents of gay kids.

Also.Also.Also, Carolyn gave sex advice, we swooned over the Samira Wiley and Ellen Page OUT100 covers and wished Stef a happy birthday!
