This month we celebrate our Judy’s, Mary’s, and best hunties. Women. This month is all yours kitty girls. Today is international Women’s Day so get the drinks ready get your life and march for equality march for resistance, and march just to be seen and heard as a Woman of the Wurrrrl. Since the Beginning of our struggle as members of the LGBT community, women were often the very first ones to speak up for us and with us. The Mothers, sisters, and besties of the Queer were on the front lines of battle. I mean really, thinking back to our high school days of being bullied it was usually our best girl friend who would rough things up in our defense. Gay men have always been protected by the ones we often attach ourselves too, women. We live for women so much that some of us have deiced to embody them as a career.
So as this month plays out we will stand by our sisters, we will remember the ones from the past, and embrace and encourage the ones in our future. In honor of Women’s History month we listed our Top 10 women who have stood with us in times of need, and listed some new names that are shaking things up in the resistance setting a new stage for equality.
For kicks, we are quoting one of the most understated feminist films!
