HELLO LESBIANS, BISEXUALS, DUDES, AND OTHERWISE-INCLINED LADIES.
Welcome to the announcement of the winner of our Sweet Cruise Giveaway Contest! We did it on a podcast. And if you didn’t win, you can go ahead and put a cruise on your credit card at Discover Sweet dot com!

Now that you’ve listened to our “podcast” you know who won, and you should email alex at autostraddle dot com for more details!
If you lost — and let’s be honest, most of you did — maybe this video will cheer you up!
Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We're running the fundraiser through March 29th!
We're out of immediate danger...but we had to ask...what if we could survive for longer? Will you help?
Go to our Fundraiser!

i appreciate your brand of honesty, riese. and alex’s brand of background music. win/win.
Thanks Laneia! I appreciate that.
I’m going to assume I was the original ‘Just Liz’. I feel I’ve earned it. Congrats Julia!
there should be 35 comments here from all the people who lost and the one people who won.
YOU DIDN’T WANT IT ENOUGH, LADIES, YOU JUST DIDN’T WANT IT ENOUGH! except for Liz, Liz wanted it enough. BRAVO LIZ.
We’re selling the extra bed in Brooke’s room on the private market for $1,000, first come first serve. The trick is tricking Brooke into thinking that she just met you on the boat and you hit it off and she has an extra bed. We’ll help of course.
I DID want it BAD enough. ALL CAPS.
Although, the real question is why isn’t Sweet cruises giving PaaV free cruises to “give away” to our “listeners”? We love lezzie and awesome stuff! We pimp lezzie and awesome stuff! Autostraddle is just so much cooler than us, I suppose that’s why…
Julia is my voice student! YAY!!! See what happens when you study with Haviland? You get a free cruise. That’s what happens.
haha. Nice plug. And i think it might be true. The only other thing I won in my life was a platypus software t-shirt in the 3rd grade. So go study with Haviland and get cool stuff!
Thank you Autostraddle I am super excited.
Well, at least I now know a shit-ton about Sweet Cruises. *laugh*
Doh! So close! Congrats Julia! You’re going to have an wonderful time.
As the other Julia in the draw, I went from super excited when the first name was read, to all disappointed when the last name got read. So close, but not close enough.
Congratulations other Julia, have an awesome time!
