From hosting impromptu flippy-cup competitions at Back Lot Bash to interviews with Melissa Etheridge, we at The L Stop are proud of all the ground we have covered and memories we have made over the last 18 months. We are doubly pleased to announce that today, November 15, 2012 we have officially hit 500,000 page views!!! As much I like to think that our little yet ambitious team single-handedly recruited each of the page views, we could have not done it without your social media shares, your interest in our themed Friday nights at Parlour on Clark or the temporary tats you all sported at Pride.

Below are the TOP TEN articles of our short and sweet history- check them out, share them with friends and stick with us to see some of the surprises we have in store for the next milestone!!!!

Effing Dykes Blog

This writer is a monster all on her own- Krista Burton, writer extraordinaire (and fellow Minnesotan like me) joined our team with the already acclaimed “Effing Dykes” Blog. We are so lucky to have her snarky wit, hilarious stories and, (of course) her pictures to share with all of you!

Invisible Femmes 

Dawn Brown brought us an amazing article discussing the difficulties that are faced by Lesbians who are considered “femme” both within and outside of the LGBTQ community. It’s a great insight to an issue that deserves so much more discussion- educate yourselves ladies…then go flirt with the girl with painted nails and heels at T’s.

Top Ten Chicago Lesbians to Look Out for in 2012

Stye = 1, Tamale = 2

In one of our first articles posted to the site in May of 2011, Miss Tamale, badass comedian and dyke on bike to the stars, talks about a Stye that has a life of its own. Hi-larious.

About Lauren

Lauren was born and raised in South Minneapolis and like many other innocent midwesterners got sucked into the black hole of Chicago politics 4 years ago. As the LGBT Coordinator for the Gery Chico for Mayor Campaign she attempted to take on the entire city and hasn’t looked back since. Now working for a communications firm, she spends her extra time running around with cases of PBR playing in different sports leagues, hosting couchsurfers from all over the place, and deciding how she is going to change the world. A simple lady at her core, she has decided that the first person to send her an edible arrangement must be the one.
