Happy Pride Month to all my beautiful queer friendos, out there!
This year, I wanted to do something that could be simultaneously important for the queer community, while also not taking discussions around our liberation and empowerment too seriously. When Pride Month or discussions around LGBTQIA+ topics come around, it almost always has a tendency to become a drag, a reminder that we're still second class citizens.

I wanted to do something special to thank those who support my Twitch channel or my Patreon page, and I've always loved the idea of sending holiday cards, so that's precisely what I'm doing!
Though Thanksgiving has some problematic historical contexts, I still enjoy taking today to take stock of what's going on in my life, and noting all the things I'm thankful for. It's magical for the brain, and so helpful for reminding us what's important in our lives.
Take care, be gentle with yourself, and celebrate as much as you can, even if it’s just making your morning cup of coffee. The world is stressful, but you're allowed to take a bit of a break from it, every now and then, and recognize how much you've accomplished.
