Friday Five (they came for an insurrection edition)


Welcome to the second Friday of June! Happy Pride Month!

The rain has returned. Maybe my hay fever will let up.

Anyway, it’s time for the Friday Five in which I bring you: two stories about the investigation into treason, one story about lying liars, two stories about the failing court, the top five stories of the week, five stories of interest to queers and our allies, five stories about queer history and pride, and five stories about haters and traitors.
