It’s Pride week, friends!!!


If you have the time, space, and desire to cry, please read this incredible essay about Olivia, the legendary lesbian cruise.

To me, Olivia was getting the chance to spend an afternoon with a 73-year-old who’d worked for 11 years as a bartender at my favorite lesbian bar in Brooklyn.

Olivia was my long talk with Lynette about anti-trans feminism in the UK, and being impressed with her easy command of they/them pronouns — yet again proving my worries about older lesbians wrong.

This very comprehensive article at the Beat about the possibilities and problems with unionizing comics is well-worth your time.
