There’s plenty to do the next few days INCLUDING hitting up the NYC Feminist Zine Festival, popping over to MoMA PS1’s Spring Open House, watching A League of Their Own (our GIF theme, DUH!) and more! Before we get into all ye olde details, though, here’s some #DOPECONTENT you might’ve missed on BYT this week if you were too busy wondering if there is a single human on the planet who actually likes Theresa May!
- We did a true crime thing last weekend, not sure if you knew from the eight thousand times we told you about it! Here are the AMAZING photos ft. Amanda Knox, Damien Echols and more!
- I had a really great time chatting to Rosie Carney about how shitty it was to move from England to Ireland at the age of ten, hence why she threw herself into a (now v. successful) musical career!
- I also spoke to queer Brooklyn-based artist Felix and the Future about how he doesn’t care if people like his voice or not, ’cause he’s here to stay.

- Lane Moore confirms that dating is truly bleak everywhere!
- And finally, a tribute to Scott Walker.
