Hey y’all. It’s me, Mallory, again. Unfortunately Molly had to step down from writing the round up for awhile. What does that mean? It means the snark-factor of this blog went waaaaay down. We’ll miss you, Molly, but wish you the best of luck at your grown up, Trust Women job.
As always, we start [...]

This has been a pretty big news week, y’all!
The Oklahoma Gazette had a great article about how the OKC gay scene gained visibility and organized around the AIDS epidemic. It’s amazing how the actions of a few individuals can help shape an entire culture! And boy are we [...]
