Did you stay up all night listening to Taylor Swift’s highly anticipated 11th album The Tortured Poets Department? I know I did!  I’m the kind of Swiftie who’s always looking for queer reads of Taylor’s music and without a doubt, there was a lot of subtext in TTPD…. Poetry? Yes, please. Torture? Relatable.

Swift’s songwriting is stunning and there are so many layers to unpack– but here are my first takes on the queerest moments on her new album: Guilty As S ..read more

I attended Second Helping on a rainy night earlier this month, metaphorical church bells echoing through the dim downtown comedy club. As fellow Midwesterner and with 12 years of Catholic school under my bel ..read more
