Illustrations by Ren Rader “I’m a queer female, but I’m in love with a straight woman. What should I do?” —Raspberry Oh Raspberry, where should I begin? I’m all too familiar with this feeling: She’s everything you could possibly want in a person. You probably get annoyed when men hit on her, and consequently feel overall worse about the situation. You tell yourself, “Well maybe she’s a little gay,” when in reality, she’s just a...

Illustration by Andrea Nebhut “All you need is love!” So shouts, and then sings, Ewan McGregor as the penniless but ebullient poet Christian in Baz Luhrmann’s frenetically swooning movie, “Moulin Rouge.” He is — as we’ll see on Valentine’s Day!* — very enthusiastic.

I think (and hope) I’m not the only one who fell...

With the new year quickly approaching, I have spent a lot of time reflecting on the past year. As many of you can probably relate to, I feel as if being in college has lent itself to self-growth and maturation, often in ways that are wholly unexpected.

I watched my grandpa die over winter break. It might seem morbid talking about death and loss only a couple of days after Valentine’s Day, but I don’t think it’s morbid at all. In fact, I think that there are quite a few students at Trinity who have experienced loss, perhaps multiple times, and I think that this story is still about love. It’s just not about romantic love. During the fall semester, my grandpa’s...
