Here’s What Los Angeles Is Doing To Save Lives.

Illustration by Christian Barthold

Hot girl summer is in full swing, and the party scene in Los Angeles is railing up for what is sure to be the craziest season in modern memory. Having missed a summer last year due to COVID-19, people’s need to go out and let loose is imminent, a response to mindless hours spent slowly passing time by binging television while working from home. But, with the rising heat comes another rising phenomenon, one which threatens to imperil the very lives of those so eager to celebrate their newfound freedom.

Disney is once again attempting to edge its way to the forefront of Pride Month: This month, the company has unveiled new Pride-focused merchandise in a feeble effort to appear inclusive. One Lilo and Stitch–themed t-shirt reads “Ohana means family,” while another depicts the Pixar lab in rainbow colors. Yet behind the scenes, Disney tells another story — one that, as Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch recently noted on Twitter, treats LGBTQ-focused content as unsuitable for their audiences. …

Oh my goodness you’re finally off work! Yay! Looks like it’s time to play four hours of me getting railed by the neighbor boy before you go to bed! It is the neighbor boy today, right? I know I had a thing with the lesbian across the street last week, but I don’t remember. It’s just soo hard to organize who I’m having sex with right now.

I should thank you for setting my aspiration to romance as a means of nullifying your loneliness. Life is so exciting when you don’t know who will be in your hole next. Bonus…


The horse is powerful. In ancient mythology, it is often present, serving as a symbol of tranquility, balance, or war, depending on whatever story you find yourself submersed in. In Thoroughbreds, the horse is a blank slate, introduced at the beginning with no story preceding it. It could be a re-telling of Celtic mythology, where horses bring good luck and good fortune. It could be linked to the Romans, who associated horses with Mars, the God of fury. It could be all of these, a moment left we’re left to wonder as Olivia Cooke runs her hand down the face…


This photo. You know this photo? I like the graphic. Also, it’s this article. Yeah.

It’s been three hours since Twitter blew up over an Xtra article hitting the web. The piece, written by Kate Raphael, details how quarantine has made her distanced from her queerness, a real thing most of the LGBTQ community most likely feels after having to give up Christmas in June (Pride). To recant these feelings of isolation, Kate turns to her boyfriend and asks for help reaffirming her queer identity. She asks for a haircut.

On paper, this diary entry/ think piece doesn’t sound too bad. It’s a nice re-telling of a cute moment in a relationship that might work…


I am no aficionado on British Drama. I avoid “Keeping Up With The Monarchy” almost out of spite. My girlfriend loves watching the Prince Harry/Meghan Markle engagement announcement video and so, I unwillingly agreed to join her on the Oprah interview airing tonight. I hate even writing this, but my newsletter has come to reflect my mother’s taste in television: The Bachelor and the Royal Engagement.

On Sunday, March 7th, Oprah aired an interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Admittedly, I have a vague understanding of Meghan Markle (once saw a Tiktok of her “sucking dick” on some trashy…


“Straight,” otherwise known as a concept I’ll never try.

Jean Jacket Straights

The ones who are gayer than they think they are. They listen to good music and, surprisingly, know more queer movies than you. They’re dating a guy who is their best friend and might also be a jean jacket straight. They’re really cool and you’ll probably fall in love with them, only to find out they ghost you to date six different types of guy.

It’s been almost a month since Happiest Season broke the internet. Much was expected from the first lesbian holiday film, which premiered on Hulu on November 26th, and much, to our dismay, fell flat. Lesbians stormed Twitter and Tiktok alike to take up their torches defending Abby (Kristen Stewart) from the clutches of Harper, straight actress Mackenzie Davis playing yet again another lesbian character in a groundbreaking queer film. …


The Grinch is sexy. There’s no getting around the objective truth facing us all square on. The Grinch. is. Sexy. A nonpartisan issue, that is not black and white, gay or straight. One month out of the year, we celebrate an icon with a short lived shelf life and a long lengthened staff. To capture our collective feelings towards this tall Sex God, I have compiled a thorough list on why I would like to pipe the Grinch.

  1. He has a dark history. I could fix him.
  2. To put in the words of my friend Gray: “he really throws his…

The Euphoria of my time was Skins, a British show centering teens with drugs problems and the lives that led them there. It featured Tony, the leader, Syd, the unfuckable virgin, and Effie, the train wreck delivered to us in season two who set the pace for women hurting everywhere. She was our Rue, our Jules, someone to look to in bad times and project on in good times. Addicts and fuck ups on screen seemed to handle it better than you. They make it fun. They make it sexy. …
