Happy weekend, friends! I hope you have some fun stuff planned. The Met Gala was on Monday, so it was a big week here at GFY. If you missed any of our coverage, you can catch up here.
It has been……a week. This is a useful and informative piece at The Cut that goes well beyond the headline: Donate to an Abortion Fund Right Now. SO many states only have one abortion clinic. I donated to Access Reproductive Care – Southeast, which aids folks in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
Good for Phoebe Bridgers for talking about her recent abortion. She doesn’t owe this information to anyone and I don’t expect or want this from celebrities (or any people) who aren’t comfortable with it, but it was brave of her to use her public platform this way. [Lainey]
This is tremendously moving and very much worth your time: “The Holocaust Started With My Great-Uncle’s Murder: Arthur Kahn is believed to be the first Jewish person killed by the Nazis. I’ve known the story of his death as long as I can remember, but I wanted to learn the story of his life.” [The Atlantic]

This is how I feel! (At the moment.) At Celebitchy: Cher on whether she’ll go gray: It’s ‘fine for other girls. I’m just not doing it’. (I tried it and didn’t like it on my head! I love it on other people!)
I’m into this: Only Murders in the Building: Mabel’s Most Memorable Looks Ahead of Season 2 [Town & Country]
