Twitter is abuzz today with news of last night’s Golden Globes ceremony because the looks were iconic, the wins were triumphant, and, most importantly, the night was queer AF.

Edging out a glowed-up Andy Samberg, the Hottest Host Award goes to none other than Sandra Oh. The Grey’s Anatomy and Sideways alum looked resplendent in a white gown as she cracked jokes about Asian portrayals in Hollywood (prompting an “I’m sorry!” from Favourite girl Emma Stone for her gaffe in Aloha). Oh’s hosting gig wasn’t short on highlights, from her heartfelt “I see you” speech about Hollywood diversity to her tearful tribute to her parents while she accepted a Globe of her very own for portraying the complex—and queer!—lead in the TV series Killing Eve.

That Black Panther girl-on-girl smooch, tho

Hijinks reigned supreme at the Globes, particularly the wacky InStyle “elevator videos.” There were so many fun moments as the doors opened and closed The best elevator video of the night goes to the ladies of Black Panther. In it, Danai Gurira, whose gorgeous gown recalls the national flower of her native Zimbabwe, strolls by the elevator to catch Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o in a passionate kiss. Undeterred, Gurira, an acclaimed playwright as well as a badass actress, butts in and dips Nyong’o as the doors close. Can we join in, please?


Speaking of elevator videos…

Ugh my heart is fluttering just looking at them. The stunning blonde bombshell actress brought the model, activist, and writer as her date to the Golden Globes, making us collectively drool.

Last night’s Globes saw major victories for queer visibility. Most notably, Bohemian Rhapsody won Best Motion Picture – Drama (in an upset over the favored A Star is Born), but even more poignant was Rami Malek’s Best Actor victory for his portrayal of bisexual Freddie Mercury. An adorably overwhelmed Malek thanked the late Mercury, calling him “gorgeous” as proud Queen guitarist Brian May looked on from his table. Earlier in the evening, utterly charming Olivia Colman took home a Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for her role as the lady-loving Queen Anne in The Favourite, and Best Television Limited Series went to American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace. In one of the night’s most emotional moments, executive producer Brad Simpson called for an end to homophobia: “the forces [of hate] are not historical…They’re here. They’re with us. And we must resist.”

Lady Gaga wins and bi girls everywhere swoon

Visibility can be a challenge for the bisexual population, as their identity often meets resistance even in the queer community. This week has marked more than one victory for openly bisexual women: Several days ago, Kyrsten Sinema was sworn in as the first openly bi U.S. Senator (looking fantastic to boot!), and last night, Lady Gaga took home Best Original Song for A Star is Born’s heart-wrenching “Shallow.” Though (as always) Gaga rocked the red carpet in a dreamy blue ballgown and hair to match, the pic of her eating cereal in bed post-ceremony—with her trusty Globe by her side—was a true bi mood.

The cast of Pose bring the lewks

Sadly, Ryan Murphy and FX’s tribute to the legacy of drag balls was robbed of Globes, but that didn’t deter Pose’s cast from dressing to impress. Just look at these lewks: Indya Moore’s chain mail-esque frock with a delicious scalloped hem! Janet Mock’s pure white gown with an enviable thigh-high slit! Mj Rodriguez’s vision in blue (and speaking of slits!). Best of all, Billy Porter’s couture cape lined in hot-pink silk. Who needs trophies when you have style to spare?

Missed the Golden Globes last night? No worries. Thanks to social media (and, ahem, excellent roundups like this one), you can relive the magic all over again, with none of the boring table-dodging and Alan Arkin glaring. Melissa McCarthy, do you have any ham sandwiches left over? Just wondering…
