Thanks so much to everyone for helping put together this wonderful list of queer-themed entertainment! A special thanks go out to kyuuketsukirui, who posted more than a dozen recs and kept us going this month. We had 18 participants and 52 54 recs, all said and done--enough to keep us busy for a while!

This was lovely. Thanks for hosting it again.

Thanks for reading along! M.

(oh, M, I am sorry for being so lame. Is it too late to post my rec(s)?)

Yes, yes, post! I'll add them. *smooch* M.

Whoa! What a good party you host! Thank you! *tries not to log on Amazon... tries.... *

Only as good as the guests who show up! Thanks for such wonderful recs, b. You always know about such fascinating people. M.

A great month of recs, Maggie. Thanks so much for hosting this.

Thanks so much for participating and reading along! Maggie

As has been said, thanks for a great month of recs! As if my reading list weren't long enough already...

Thanks for participating! And a too-long reading list is better than one that's too short, right? (I remember back in the early 1990s wishing I could find more queer-themed stuff, and now there's so much I can't keep up.) M.

Thanks for the list! Makes it nice and organized. (Downtime recced by [info]semioticwarrior is locked to non-lj users, though.)

Why do some people recommend each other's works? It was like that last year too...

Ah! Did you leave a comment for semiotic warrior? I'll check to be sure.

Good point. We may encourage folks not to do that next year.

Thanks for reading along! Maggie

Thanks so much for running the comm!

Thanks so much for participating, Semi! M.

(Deleted comment)
Argh! I thought I might have lost something in the copy-and-paste. Thanks.

And thanks again for all of your recs! I already have most of the movie titles in the nextflix queue. M.

Thanks so much for hosting this, Maggie! I look forward to reading/viewing all of the stuff I've added to my To-Do list. :)
