If we had to pick a favorite international holiday, ours would obviously be International Lesbian Day (ILD). Every October 8th, lesbians around the stratosphere start to celebrate all of our beautiful lezzie ways with so much pride (and flannel, of course, babes). The origins of this day are widely unknown and largely disputed. But it’s been around long enough that there was a huge Tweet storm about it yesterday.

That’s right. All your faves were Tweeting away about all the lesbian things they did to celebrate their truest selves! And Happy Lesbian Day. Because at GO Mag, every day is Lesbian Day.
