It’s Pride month, so it’s time to celebrate by combining two things that identify me: cosplay and queerness! What better way to celebrate than by showing off some of the beautiful LGBTQ cosplayers out there in some of our favorite ships?

So here are, in no particular order, ten gorgeous cosplays that celebrate queerness and queer ships. Please be sure to give the cosplayers a little love!

Alright, y’all, we’re continuing our 9-week marathon of all things Star Trek, and it’s only fitting that we dedicate a week of Fanfic Wednesday to the fandom that gave life to a lot of what we’ve become accustomed to in fanfiction, namely slash shipping. Fun fact: the term slash fic was invented by the Trekker fandom.

So, set phasers to binge-reading, and settle in for the long haul.
