After losing last summer to a global pandemic, it’s safe to say that summer 2021 will be filled with some real hot people sh*t -- to paraphrase Megan Thee Stallion. We’re not quite out of the woods yet but with vaccinations becoming available, lots of our favorite summertime activities that we had to miss out on last year, like going to rooftop bars and day-drinking at vineyards, can resume granted you’re fully vaccinated and take a few extra precautions. Still unsure about getting your Covid vaccines? Check out our feature article Vaxxed, Snatched, and Waxed-- Why Hot People are Getting the Covid Vaccine.

In the spirit of hot b*tch summer coming back,  we here at RUiN wanted to celebrate what Summer Heat means to you, in the form of playlists, art pieces, personal essays, and more. We were floored with how many different ways our readers are celebrating. So grab your hot b*tch summer tote bag, lay outside, and crack open a fresh issue of RUiN with the boys… or gals, or non-binary pals. 

And let the hot b*tch summer begin.
