Hi babes! How are you? I’M IN LOVE!!!!! Just a dumb dyke at the end of the world falling in love, planning a wedding for five years from now, making and sharing playlists… you know, gay shit. They’re perfect, femme4femme might be my new favorite thing, and now I want to share some other good news with you.
+ Okay, let’s begin with this:

+ Listen, I hate to say it, but Folklore is good. Heather talked about it, and now they’re talking about it on Vulture. Just take it on a walk with you one day, you’re gonna like it, I think.
+ A queer history of Scooby Doo‘s Velma, who we all know is a lesbian and is now canon, I think?
These days, DJ sets have had to move online, and FTG has adapted its model accordingly, partnering with DJs to redistribute funds from online streams. Party collectives online and off have long functioned as healing spaces for the trans and gender nonconforming Black community at large, and party music is a central part of Black LGBTQ cultural history. Contemporary dance and electronic music has its roots in New York’s 1970s disco tradition, Detroit’s 1980s techno, and Chicago’s 1980s house—musical subcultures built for and pioneered by queer communities of color. These musical lineages inform FTG’s sound. Saeed, who hails from the South Side of Chicago, focuses on playing contemporary Black diaspora dance, house, and electronic artists at FTG’s parties.
