You might have a long weekend ahead because of Indigenous People’s Day; we’ve got some suggestions for ways to observe the holiday meaningfully, so stay tuned for that. There’s also plenty going on in general the next few days (virtual New York Comic Con, The Haunting of Bly Manor, National Coming Out Day, a John Lennon and Ruth Bader Ginsburg tributes), and we’ll talk about that in a minute, BUT FIRST – some stuff you might’ve missed from the BYT universe this week! For example, if you snoozed on Smithsonian National Museum of American History’s opening virtual event for Girlhood (It’s Complicated), YA GOTTA watch that below // appearances from Tayla Parx, Beanie Feldstein, Jazz Jennings, Billie Jean King, Tegan & Sara…the list goes on. SUPER fun, v. empowering:
