Five good (and gay) things that happened this week: 8/25-8/31

Happy Friday everyone. Fall is just around the corner and that’s great because drinking Pumpkin Spice Lattes in 95 degrees is not cutting it. Oh, here’s some good and gay things!


1. DC gets two new lesbian bars. After year of watching beloved lesbian and queer women’s spaces shutter, there’s some hope on the horizon. Washington DC has two new lesbian space: A League of Her Own and XX+. ALoHO has a more sports bar/everyday club feel, while XX+ has a more upscale feel with billiards, craft cocktails and finger foods. If you are in DC, please support these new spaces.


2. Palm Springs couple is lauded for their contributions to the community. Congrats to Gail Christian and Lucy DeBardelaben who were featured this week in the Desert Sun for the work they have done in the Palm Springs area for queer women and women of color, including Palm Springs Women’s Jazz Festival and Dinah in Color.



3. The Charmed reboot gets an official poster and it’s pretty magical. You may have to wait until October 14th to see the first episode of the CW’s Charmer reboot, but the poster is finally here. The poster features Mel Pruitt (Melonie Diaz) on the right, the lesbian sister in the trio.


4. Lesbian movie marathon! Disobedience is on Prime and The Feels is on Netflix. We have a long weekend ahead of us and we have been blessed with new content on streaming serviced. If you have Amazon Prime, you can watch Disobedience for free, and Netflix subscribers can check out Crazy Rich Asians‘ star Constance Wu as a lesbian in The Feels.


5. Cynthia Nixon isn’t backing down. She might now have the support of the New York DNC but that hasn’t stopped queer gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon from bringing her A game to the race against incumbent and staunch LGBTQ supporter Mario Cuomo. The two recently participated in a live debate and for a first time political candidate, Nixon more than held her own. It’s going to be a nail-biter come September 13th.
