This is Your Friday Open Thread for June 26, 2020

It’s the last Friday in June! Next Friday will be July! Oh! My! Goddess! Can you believe it?!

We’ve had a pretty huge week here in our little queer corner of the internet. If you missed it, make sure you read Riese’s last letter from the editor – then hop into the comment section to say thank you to Riese, and give our new editor in chief, Kamala, and our new deputy editor, Carmen, a huge congratulations! I am so excited for the future of this publication! And, as always, very excited to continue building community with all of you.

Speaking of community, I wanted to take a minute to let you know that if you’re looking for some fun and meaningful virtual Pride plans this weekend, to celebrate the final weekend of Pride month, we are hosting Rise Up Get Down: A Benefit for Queer Futures on Sunday June 28 at 5pm PST / 8pm EST, and we would love to see you there! Here’s where you can read all about the show, which will include performances from El Sanchez, Jes Tom, Junauda Petras-Nasah, and Be Steadwell and will be MC-ed by Autostraddle’s very own Shelli Nicole! Here’s where you can buy tickets – the show is Pay-What-You-Want, with tickets starting at $1 (though the recommended contribution is $25). Ticket proceeds will go to benefit Women for Political Change in Minneapolis, who are offering mutual aid and on-the-ground support for protesters and communities during the current uprising and global pandemic!

Okay, that’s enough from me – y’all go ahead and get talking, because this is your open thread! I hope I’ll see you at the benefit on Sunday!
