Don We Now Our Gay Apparel: The 2013 Holigay Gift Guide


For the newlyweds: Mr. & Mr. or Mrs. & Mrs. Ring Dish

Everybody’s got to have a place to stash their joolz while washing up after hot, hot newlywed… name change forms. A plus: Crate & Barrel scored a 90/100 on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index.

No, no really, it’s a twist on Trivial Pursuit, but covering LGBT topics. More progressive than Yahtzee, although clearly less fun than Pretty Pretty Princess.

For the do-gooder in you: A Donation

The NGLTF, The It Gets Better Project, CenterLink, or your local LGBT center are all great places to put your dollars to work on behalf of a loved one.

Miss Femmemorandum is a media/PR/law hybrid by day and a DIYer/obsessive media consumer by night. Come to her for all things crafty, filmy, and ladylike and stay for the diatribes on intersectionality and invisibility.
