You’re All Fabulous, Happy Comment Award Friday!

Holalala chiquitas! In my fridge is a can of redbull and a pre-made homemade sandwich for my exam tomorrow morning, and I feel like that says all you need to know about my life right now. So on to the comment awards!

This week Team Press went to the GLAAD Media Awards in LA and Rachel liveblogged it and it was fabulous. No, really. Dolly Parton was there. Know what else is fabulous? Annika, your typical urban hipster femme twenty-something trans lesbian. Yeah, you read that right!

We’ve got two new playlists this week as well, one dedicated to Laneia inspired by a photo, and one that will help you get off your couch and go to that party you said you would go to.

Lily’s back with another College Lesbianage and it’s probably the best one yet. There may or may not be a Mandy Moore cover band and it may or may not include Lily and her brother. Just saying.

I’m not sure how to describe this, but here is an article/blog type post about an American lesbian studying abroad in Uganda. It is definitely the best thing I’ve read recently, and I’m saying that after just telling you about the Mandy Moore cover band.

Oh, and here are 100 pictures of Shane, which you probably needed.

Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. And A+ members keep the majority of our site free for everyone. Still, 99.9% of our readers are not members. A+ membership starts at just $4/month. If you're able to, will you join A+ and keep Autostraddle here and working for everyone?

Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.

Emily has written 100 articles for us.


  1. Diver TOTALLY deserved a comment award for her comment on the Kobe article.

    IN addition – Krysta – I LOVE your snark! – you and I could SOO be friends, except you are way more polite than I am! I struggle to be polite with my snark! Will you give me lessons??? :)

  2. Ah! I got a comment award? Oh! I must tell Gatsby of this day!

    @Kristy i definitely struggle with politeness… i erased several drafts of that comment so I wouldn’t look like an ass. :)
