GIVE ME ALL THIS SUN!!! Get out there today, even for ten min and let the vitamins and warmth heal you a little. ☀️☀️☀️
I think it was 11 years ago that @cameronesposito and I hosted a little fest called Queerfest Midwest in Chicago. I suggested we wear matching overalls. She didn't (I still did). She hasn't stopped advocating for queer women since. I I have and always will be one of her biggest fans. She and @rheabutcher are such inspirations and I'm so glad the timing worked out that they could come to @dykebarchi yesterday before their sold out homecoming show. Love and appreciate you guys so much. And hell yes to dykes dominating chicago culture this wknd. ❤️🏳️‍🌈🔻photos by @kelainephoto

Gay grief is real. My queerness is “out”, but my sadness is often in the shadows. This has been particularly apparent to me amongst all the recent travel and celebrations. On #nationalcomingoutday when timelines are filled with lots of enthusiasm and confidence, I want my fellow LGBTQ family who are going through it that it’s ok to feel a mess. We carry with us unique traumas and can’t be good for this world and our community until we get good with ourselves. Grief is that bitch who bothers us until we pay attention to her, and it might be a while, so give in: "Grieve so you can feel something else.” Find confidence and comfort that you got you, you are greatness, and you will get through this. That is what's remarkable about coming out - crawling out of the darkness and finding your light; you will triumph again. I love you. ❤️🏳️‍🌈
Ran this am, then biked to the ferry and took it to NY in perfect 75 degree weather. Bless my mom and brother for dealing with my roadside media fielding throughout the whole day (yas NPR!). It was amazing to breathe in the VT fresh air and see my family, even if briefly. Ready for a big day in Chicago tomorrow...4am wake up time! 🍁🚴🏼‍♀️🌲⛴
This is my mom nancy, who wears lipstick to mow the lawn. Obv femme runs in the family. 💄 👯
Growing up next door with facing bedroom windows, we shared just about everything from clothes to a bed. We've been witnesses to each other's trauma, losses and gains, and share a tattoo of our strength and and solidarity. And today, I saw my sis get married under the chuppah (2nd this wknd!) to a man with as much humor and heart as her. Rachel, I love you and wouldn't have missed this moment for the world. ❤️
Two flights, two states and two weddings later over two days! I look pretty good all things considered. 100% worth it and wouldn't change any of it for the world. Back home for the first time in over two years and so grateful to be here. ❤️
What a Minister of Parties wears to be a Minister of a Wedding. Taylor and Tal: This was the honor of a lifetime; I'm so happy I introduced you four years ago and then married you today! 💐💕#tnt10717
Friend reunions in other cities are my favorite. Two visits w @marquita_harris_ in two months. #willtravelforfriends 💚🌿
Tomorrow will be one of the greatest honors of my life: Officiating the wedding of @taymauch , my longest love in Chicago. The lifetimes we have lived together. This woman is a TEN all around: Friend, partner, artist, human. I have cried 5x already and we aren't even at the chuppuh yet. She deserves all the happiness in the world!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Happy 30th revolution round the sun to Lex, the Zen on Ten Libra Queen. Her ability to find peace in tumultuous times and compassion for others despite difference is almost otherworldly to me. The every day calm and care she brings to my life is a quiet but persistent gift given so selflessly. So much love for the light you bring to the world, Lex- I celebrate all you are and bring to your orbit today! 🖤🎂😎
Yaaas queer brown love on the BIG SCREEN! Sold out @signaturemovemovie - so good, and so proud of @thefawz 🤼‍♀️❤️🎉🏳️‍🌈
