  • “Straight girls love gay male public spaces because they feel like safe spaces. The Orlando massacre reminds us this safety is an illusion of our relative privilege. Not even gay public space is safe space to be gay.” Melissa Harris-Perry on straight girls and gay clubs

  • “Being bi comes with the double edged sword of “passing.” Because I’m married to a man, and because of my high femme gender presentation, most people will assume I am straight. I do not have to worry that when I hold my spouse’s hand in public that someone will beat me. I do not worry about the state refusing to recognize my marriage.” Biphobia, erasure and the Pulse Massacre  
  • ICYMI, we published a great new comic this week on the heteronormativity blues. Check it out!
