Refinery 29 went into the collective gay nostalgia treasure trove and pulled out some of the most iconic same-sex kisses on television, including Willow and Tara (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Jack and Ethan (Dawson’s Creek) and of course the infamous Britney Spears/Madonna/Christina Aguleria kiss. While not all the choices are as positive of representation as others, it is a reminder of how we have come far from a gay kiss being seen as “gasp” moment to just a normal sexual reality for millions of people around the world.

  • The Root celebrates the accomplishments of women of color to Feminism this Women’s History Month (via The Root).
  • Apparently, White House staffers are running a “Dead Pool” to see who is going to be leaving the White House next. With rumors saying that Don Jr.’s own wife is filing for divorce, it looks as if we should be expanding it to the family members. My vote is on Barron (via HuffPo).
  • Author, influencer and overall interesting person Roxane Gay, shares 10 of her favorite books, including personal fav: We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby (via Vulture).
  • My new sexuality is Angela Bassett in bomb highlight auditioning for the role of Erik Killmonger. I swear a higher power broke the mold when it came to her.

What was the most important same-sex kiss for you?
