Regaining faith in 'Grey's Anatomy'

Like most gay ladies, I lost a lot of respect and interest in abc's Grey's Anatomy after they fired one of only two bisexual characters last year.

Erica Hahn (played by Brooke Smith) and Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) were enjoying an incredibly sweet relationship on Grey's, until they decided that they would just dump Hahn in the parking lot of no return.

However, the most recent few episodes have restored my hope for their representation of gay and bisexual people.

Callie has been introduced to the lovely Arizona Robbins, played by Jessica Capshaw, who you may know as Nadia from season 5 of The L Word, in which she seduced the jaw-dropping Bette Porter (Jennifer Beals).

In the newest episode (which aired February 19th), Callie ended up asking Arizona on a date. To my surprise, she actually said no! I mean, I for one would never say no to this foxy lady:

Capshaw is a bit of alright too...

So listen up, writers and producers of Grey's Anatomy! If you ensure that these two get together for real, I will come down there and be your personal slave. Thanks.

Batwoman Comes Out!

Okay, so she's not as real as Clementine Ford, but she's (almost) equally as hot.

That's right, last week saw the return of cartoon hero Batwoman, and guess what? She's a raging girl-homo!

Also, going back to the comparison with Clemetine Ford, just because she's not real doesn't mean it doesn't gain just as much lesbian publicity. It's almost as good as what would happen if Batman was actually African American!

Batwoman aside, which other cartoon characters do you think are secretly gay/lesbian? Obviously there's speculation about Peppermint Patty and Velma from Scooby Doo. But what do you think?

Personally, I think Lisa Simpson would make a great lesbian lawyer when she finally grows up...

Clementine Ford comes out!

I for one thinks that Clementine Ford, daughter of legendary actress Cybill Shepherd and currently the star of original lesbian TV series The L Word, is totally talented and extremely hot.

So when she mentioned in the February edition of UK lesbian and bisexual magazine 'Diva' that she preferred not to label herself, imagine how happy I was.

Ford said
"I never want to put a label on myself — but knowing that not everyone comes from such a liberal place, when something like Prop 8 comes out, you realize it’s important to stand up and be counted. A little gay kid in a small town is more important than whether I want a label."

There has been speculation over whether the lovely lady is gay or bisexual, but my guess is that she is bisexual, as she has been married to a guy before... Still, great visibility for us homos!

She also told the magazine that her and her siblings would bring both guys and girls home, and 'as long as they were human, it didn't matter.' Amen to that!

For an unbearably charming video of Clementine, go here to watch her being harassed by lesbian comedy legend Liz Feldman.
