Happy Friday, unicorns. Hope you’re not eating a Chipotle burrito while reading this.
Now that Notorious RBG and her crew used some jiggery-pokery, marriage equality is the law of the land. Everybody seems to be asking, what is next?

Here’s what we read this week:
So much to read!
It’s rare for media to provide a multi-dimensional portrait of sex workers. It’s even rarer when it comes from a media outlet responsible for such titles as Vanity Fair and The New Yorker.
