My Weekend Crush

As important as it is to continue to fight to improve all that is wrong, we should celebrate all that is right. A win is a win. And two national magazine covers featuring three queer women of color – that’s a win-win-win, and then some. I couldn’t be happier to see Lena Waithe on the cover of Vanity Fair and Stephanie Beatriz and Natalie Morales on the cover of The Advocate. I couldn’t be happier to see them receive the mainstream accolades they all so deserve. And I couldn’t be happier to see these faces reflected back from magazine racks across the nation. Representation will always matter. The more people get to see themselves reflected back in their heroes, the more we will all know is possible. Happy weekend, all.

Leaving the theater last night, my family unanimously agreed that Lena Waithe was the best part of Ready Player One, a movie we all liked pretty well overall. She acted circles around Boring Male Lead.
