Come one, come all, and bring your friends along for a potluck brunch fundraiser to support our very favorite in justice-advocating, culture-shifting, feelings-having lezzy media: Autostraddle! As their team says, in the website’s description, “popularity doesn’t equal profit in this industry for indies like us, which’s why we still rely on volunteers and the financial support of our readers to stay standing.” READERS LIKE US! LET’S HELP!

Whether you’re new to the Philly queer scene or a seasoned queer-about-town, join us for the best of all combinations: queers, Autostraddle, and brunch. 100% of the money raised will go towards the website. 100% of the food and drink contributed will go towards us being happy and very full.

WHAT IS THE EVENT? 
This event will do dual duty as both a community meeting-and-greeting space (with food! and cute queers, no doubt) and a fundraiser for Autostraddle. 

WHAT SHOULD I BRING? 
Since it’s a potluck, we’re encouraging everyone to bring a dish or drink to share AND $10 to donate. In order to coordinate who is bringing what (so we don’t overlap with our dishes), please email phillyqueerbrunch at gmail. We will then hook you into a Google Doc where people can list what they’ll bring.

WHO’S INVITED?
All are welcome, but please remember that this space is intended for and will center the experiences of queer and trans women and genderqueer folks.

WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF THIS EVENT?
In the long term, we’re hoping to turn “Queer Philly Brunch” (open to snazzy, punnier titles, if someone has a good one) into a monthly event where we raise money for various Philly-based and national organizations which support queer and trans women and genderqueer folks. These potluck dinners will provide deliciousness and community, but also a space for us to potentially host discussions and workshops pertinent to our community, soliciting input from everyone as we go.

Not in Philly but interested in hosting your own fundraiser? Email phillyqueerbrunch at gmail and we’ll give you tips on hosting your own! <3

This commercial is amazing.

I work at an Under Armour store and we got to see this commercial way before they showed it on TV and everyone was speechless except one dude. He was all like “What the hell? Why the fuck would they make a ballet commercial? It’s not a sport.” My boss was quick to jump down his throat and said “Alright then get your ass on the floor and work on you tippy toes for the rest of your shift. If I fucking see you off them you will be the first of the temps to get cut!” He was on his tippy toes for the last hour and a half of his shift lol

Within three days of becoming engaged, I had already been told that I shouldn’t wear my glasses, because they’re not bridal. I was told my cane wasn’t bridal. I was told my eye… was not bridal. And I realized that if I was going to be “bridal” in their eyes, I was going to have to change who I am. I am proudly disabled.

This photo is giving me LIFE

Here’s the link to the original post at Offbeat Bride (as the source link doesn’t seem to be working) 

GORGEOUS!

Aids aren’t “bridal”? Absolutely fuck wedding culture.

—Marie Antoinette (2006)

 Just so everyone is clear, the handsome Black man tutoring Marie Antoinette is Joseph Boulogne, classical musician extraordinaire whose work influenced Mozart’s. This has been your Western music history tidbit of the day. Adieu!
