Welcome to Scorpio season, sis! Thank goddess it’s Friday, and almost time to practice lesbianism and become witches, to quote the Reverend Poot Robertson.
Princess is King
It was a long week but a goody, and our gift, straight from Sappho, for surviving through it all is the release of King Princess’ debut album, Cheap Queen, TODAY, FRIDAY OCTOBER 25. King Princess has already established herself as a pop genius, teasing us with tracks off this EP all spring/summer. She’s the wunderkind the lesbian community deserves.
Blessed By Tig

Destroying False Idols in Gay Liberation
This past week Stonewall UK split over the domination of trans rights activists in the gay liberation movement. The LGB Alliance, cites the promotion of the trans agenda at the expense of homosexuals. Members are rallying around the issue of pre-pubescent gay, lesbian and otherwise gender nonconforming youth being “medically transitioned” through chemical sterilization and surgery.
The split has already caused a great deal of controversy but perhaps an equal amount of celebration among UK gays and supporters across the pond.
From Janice Turner’s summary: “Their first demand is that the Equality and Human Rights Commission investigates the advice Stonewall (which receives an annual £600,000 in government grants) gives to public bodies from councils to police. They say it misrepresents the Equality Act by replacing the legally protected characteristic biological “sex” with “gender identity”. ”
