I’ve recently been re-watching a series that I had first binged through a few years ago. I found it about two years after its first season, right before it’s second, and final season aired. It’s a British television show, with no actors I had known before, but something had seemed very familiar and comforting about it to me. Then, not very long into starting it, I realized why I fell so hard for Lip Service.
To be honest, I don’t remember the exact day, but I know it was the spring time, a bit before my 15th birthday. I’ve never really kept track, or celebrated it on an anniversary of sorts. It was 6 years ago now that fully came out as a gay woman. I don’t like to make any big show about being gay, because I think that makes it seem like I’m separate in some way, or attention seeking.

So, with only a few issues left to hang on to, Fangirls, we’ll jump into issue #34, which really just adds insult to injury. Read More »
Fangirls, I love conventions. Up and coming conventions are almost always as exciting as bigger conventions, but they usually need a bit of help. HavenCon is a new convention this April that focuses on Geek and Gaming Culture through LGBTQA experiences and eyes.
Sometimes it’s when you’ve dug too deep, Fangirls, other times it’s right out in the open for you to find. It’s not very tough to come across really, really weird movies on Netflix. This one some how came right to me on my home page, peeking my curiosity. A group of lesbians, doing their thing in LA. Sounded familiar. Then, I read “musical”. I could not pass up watching this.
