Hello Kate, Goodbye Dave

Hello Kate, Goodbye Dave

David Letterman [retired] […]

Blurring Gender Lines

Blurring Gender Lines

I met andogynous model Rain Dove and enterpreneur Abby Sugar at last month’s Queer Fashion Week. I was immediately struck by the important work they were doing—breaking down gender stereotypes, and taking the world by storm in their different ways. Then came this!

Because Lesbians Want To See Good Films

Because Lesbians Want To See Good Films

I love the way they see the world, the ways they aspire to improve the world and the ways they tirelessly continue the uphill battle for equality in the world. Women can and will make the changes we all […]
