2021 was a tough year to be queer. Get ready for an even harder 2022

It’s never a good position to be in, being the bearer of bad news, but sometimes it’s a necessary one. I’ve run the numbers, read the tea, and communed with the spirits. 2022 is going to be a difficult year for queer people everywhere. Don’t get me wrong. 2021 was bad enough. We could use …

This queer Santa ad from Norway’s post office is the best holiday movie of 2021

Posten Norge, the official postal service of Norway’s Ministry of Transport and Communications, recently created the most gloriously queer holiday shipping ad we’ve ever seen. Check out the video here: For something that comes in at just under 4:00 (there’s a 1:00 version here), it sure does pack a lot of punch. The plot follows what …

I woke up queer this morning

I was queer when I woke up this morning. It wasn’t something I planned. I didn’t drink a queer-lixir before I went to sleep. It just… happened. Don’t get me wrong. It wasn’t unexpected. I was pretty sure I’d wake up queer today and I’m pretty certain I’ll wake up queer tomorrow. Mostly because I’m …

My blue Pride

My blue Pride

  Happy… Pride… month? Let me try that again. Ahem. Happypridemonth. Still not there. Happy meh meh meh. Well, fuck.

Study: Autistic individuals 3-9 times more likely to be bi, ace, or gay

    Here’s something only a non-autistic person would find surprising: autistic folks are much, much more likely to identify as queer than so-called neurotypicals. Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. It’s disclaimer time: We haven’t seen any peer-reviewed research yet, but we did find this interesting article in US News (an outlet we weren’t previously familiar …

I'm queer enough. So are you.

I’m queer enough. So are you.

      Pride month is only three weeks away, and that means it’s time for people like me to get defensive about who we are. I’m queer. But am I queer enough? Am I pansexual enough? Am I demisexual enough? Who gets to decide? I’m on the asexual spectrum. Like all things human, asexuality …

Self-acceptance is fucking hard

c/w: self harm, sexual shame I’ve never been a “straight person.” I grew up in a small town of about 1,100 folks in the Midwest, think less cute Chicago suburbs and more Mayberry, but less friendly. Nestled on the edge of the Bible Belt in the late 80s/early 90s, it was about as accepting a …
