My Favourite African American Hotties

Firstly, don't take offence if your favourite isn't on this list as you did with the redheads, it's just personal opinion and we're all entitled to one.

Also, when I did my hottest 20 ladies, someone noted that there weren't many women of colour on my list. Again, it's just personal preference, but that's not to say there aren't no gorgeous African American women out there.

Hence the inspiration for this blog. And I've purposely left out the bi-racial, hispanic, asian etc, ladies, just because I want this blog to be dedicated to chocolate ladies only.

So here we go on my favourites. (In no order.)

Rose Rollins.

Yeah, yeah, 'Tasha from the L Word' is hot as a butch(-ish) soldier, but just check out how pretty she looks with long, flowing hair! Sexy and versatile. Perfect.

Alicia Keys.

Look at the cutie! Alicia has the voice of a soul sistah and I personally adore her music. Plus, a girl who knows how to play an instrument? HOT DAMN.

Nicki Minaj.

I'll probably get some stick for putting Minaj on the list, but she's America's top rapping mama right now and she's a cutie!

Michelle Obama.

I couldn't leave out America's first lady, could I? She's sassy and in amazing shape for an older woman. You work it, Mrs. O!

Gabrielle Union.

I first saw Gabrielle on camp cheerleading movie Bring It On and later on TV cult series Friends, and both times I thought 'wow, what a pretty woman!' Disagree? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

I could go on for quite a while, but that's all I have time for: my girlfriend just woke up due to noisy housemates, so I suppose I better go kiss her so she doesn't get cranky...

Because All Lesbians Are Ugly.

Can anyone remember when I informed you about Ladyhawke coming out?

Well, in the comments, I received quite a few relatively rude remarks about all lesbians being ugly. Of course, we've all heard the "she's only gay because no men want her" statement.

So I wanted to show you all that this is not the case.

Many, many gay women are extremely hot. Here are a few.

Portia De Rossi.

The other half of the world's most famous lesbian, Ellen DeGeneres, Portia is definitely hot. Is she gay? Yes. Could she get possibly any man in the world? Yes. Suck on that.

Chely Wright.

Also easy on the eyes is country singer, Chely. No one gets invited to pose in their underwear for FHM if they're not nice to look at, right?

Not to mention there are some pretty gorgeous bisexual ladies out there too: Angelina Jolie, Drew Barrymore and Anna Paquin to name but a few.

I'm not trying to typecast all the feminine queer women as the 'hot ones', but of course to a bigoted, heterosexual male, the only ones worth looking at are the girly ones. They're generally all too shallow to look at the boyish cuteness of Ellen DeGeneres, Tegan & Sara and Rachel Maddow.

Finally, as a request, I've been asked to post a picture of myself, the writer of this blog, for you all to judge whether or not I'm ugly myself.

I'm not bisexual, or straight, I'm simply a lesbian. But am I ugly? Do you think I'm incapable of attracting male attention? You decide.

Calzona Bombshell?

If you're a fan of Grey's Anatomy, (or not a fan, but spend the majority of your day googling 'Calzona' or 'Canzona fanfic',) you'll know that the show is home to one of the best lesbian couples of all time.

Callie Torres and Arizona Robbins make up this dynamic duo, but gossip tells us that something baaaad is going to happen this Thursday evening when Grey's airs.

Previews have been issued to a select few, with one viewer saying:
There’s a giant bombshell dropped in the middle of Callie and Arizona’s relationship. I literally gasped and then yelled at my screen when I found out what it was. OK, make that TWICE. I yelled at my screen TWICE. If there’s one reason to watch this episode, this is it.
EEK! Sounds exciting, right? WRONG! It sounds f*cking awful! I'm thinking of all the worst situations it could be and I am not happy with it. They can't break up again, surely?!

So what do you think this 'bombshell' will be? Will they overcome it? And are you excited to see what it is!?

If You Don't Like It... GO HOME.

Chances are, you are probably aware of the, as what can only be described as 'stupid', law in the American constitution known as 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'.

This ruling sees that homosexuals in the US Army are fired and discharged from their units once they are found to be gay, lesbian or bisexual.

Ridiculously, the 'justification' behind this law being passed is that apparently homosexuality within a unit can affect the cohesion and morale of the group as a whole, with heterosexual soldiers claiming that they are distracted and disgusted by their gay service members.

This week, Lady Gaga - one of the worlds most famous, committed gay rights fighters - gave a speech in Maine, in which she made a series of incredibly valid points in favour of the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

Perhaps most significantly, she suggested creating a new rule, in which instead of sending home the homosexual soldiers within the army, we should send home the homophobic. We should send home those who believe that someone's sexuality is 'wrong' and we should send home those that believe gay people working alongside them affects their performance on the front line.

Gaga also made the point that when signing up to the army, you make an oath to protect your country and everyone in it. This is supposedly because you love your country and it's citizens so much that you are willing to risk your life to fight for it.

However, doesn't this also mean that you have made the oath to protect the gay people in your country too? Doesn't this mean that you love the gay people within your country? Well, that's what you swore into when you joined, so why would anyone who promised such a thing feel the need to be protected by Don't Ask, Don't Tell?

Quite poignantly, Gaga helps the crowd realize that the homophobic soldier is not filled with said love for his country, but rather that his 'loyalty' towards his country is tethered by hate towards certain members of his unit.

Unfortunately, DADT was not repealed this week, but that doesn't mean we can't keep fighting.

The Real L Word: Oui ou non?

Yeah, I've put it off for a long while, but I think it's time we discussed the revelation that is The Real L Word.

TRLW isn't actually out in England yet, so you may not have seen it if you are not in the United States.

In theory, all visibility for LGBT communities is good visibility. However, some have argued that this poor excuse for a trashy reality series should never be spoken about again. Somewhat like 'He Who Must Be Named', a.k.a Lord Voldemort. DARN, I said His name.

But how bad is it, really? Let's examine the characters.

Exhibit A: Whitney.

Pros: F*cking HOT. Gets more girls than Hugh Hefner. Has the cutest smile. Mysterious. Charming.
Cons: Cheater. A notorious liar. Doesn't really know what she wants.

Exhibit B: Tracy.

Pros: Gorgeous. Kind. Caring. Honest.
Cons: Has a sucky ass Mother. Kinda boring. Shy.

Exhibit C: Mikey.

Pros: An icon in the fashion world. Has a smokin' hot fiancée. Softie at heart.
Cons: Can be such a biatch. Repetitive. Puts on a hard front.

Exhibit D: Nikki.

Pros: Is one half of the most adorable real life couple. Determined. Sassy.
Cons: Can be over-powering. Sometimes over-dominates. Gets jealous easily.

Exhibit E: Jill.

Pros: Is the other half of said adorable couple. Cute. Rather intelligent.
Cons: Easily swayed by Nikki. Overly hesitant. Quiet.

Exhibit F: Rose.

Pros: Pretty. Has a gorgeous on/off girlfriend. Confident.
Cons: She's a massive dick most of the time. Cheater. Unreliable.

If you've seen The Real L Word, what did you think about it? And if you haven't, do you think you'll be watching?

Everyone Loves A Good Redhead.

After my 'Blondes I Would...' blog, I had many requests to do other lists of the same nature.

For example, someone asked for this one: a list of the top redheads.

So here goes, in no particular order. (And don't shoot me if I miss out your favourite.)

Kate Walsh.

You have to know Kate. Formerly Addison on Grey's Anatomy, which was followed by her character having her own spin-off show in Private Practice. I've never actually seen her in anything else, but I don't care. She's gorgeous.

Christina Hendricks.

I have never ever seen anything Christina has been in, I'm not going to lie. I do know she's in Mad Men and I definitely know she's gorgeous. So she makes the list.

Drew Barrymore.

Drew. Ah, Drew. You'll definitely know her from things such as E.T., Charlie's Angels & her directorial debut in Whip It! And I can't help it: she's my favourite red head. In love.

Alyson Hannigan.

Anyone who knows me will know I love a chick with a personality, and Alyson definitely has one. Probably best known for her roles in cult classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer, American Pie and How I Met Your Mother, Alyson also has a pretty face to match that gorgeous personality.

Marcia Cross.

Everyone loves a MILF, and that's what Marcia is. She just happens to have red hair too. Definitely most well known for her acting skills as the lovely Bree on Desperate Housewives.

Kate Winslet.

I have to admit, I do enjoy Kate as a blonde, but she does just as well as a fiery redhead. Of course, you'll know her from Titanic, but I love her in The Holiday. Lord knows why, I just do.

I think that's enough to wet your appetite ;)

If you're good I may have another list for you to drool over.

Prop 8 is overturned!

As I'm sure you've heard, Proposition 8 - the gay marriage ban on the state of California - was overturned today.

Well, you've either heard or you haven't got tumblr.

Anyways, as I'm constantly battling against this ridiculous proposition in one of our supposedly most 'gay friendly' states on my blog, I thought I'd post this celebratory post to inform the (few of you) of the good news.

We're making giant steps, you gays!

But remember, this proposition was overturned once before and we all know how badly that ended...

So I encourage you to keep up the fight and most of all...

'And Then Came Lola' Movie Review

Do any of you dedicated readers remember way back in 2008 when I blogged about the 'And Then Came Lola' promo picture?

Well, now you do.

And I finally took the time out to watch the movie!

My cousin bought me it for my birthday and I got round to watching it the other day. I'd usually review this on the review site I co-own, but I felt I'd be doing you lesbians a disservice if I didn't review this film here.

To be honest, I had one bad thing to say about the film - it wasn't long enough! At only around 70 minutes long, it left me feeling like I had just watched an episode of Charmed, rather than a feature film. Dammit!

However, any that Jill Bennett does is magical to me - she can do no wrong!

Cathy DeBuono and Ashleigh Sumner also co-star and do an awesome job.

My favourite part? The freakin' HOT sex scenes. Oh, and Jill's boobs. I mean face. (Maybe.)

The acting isn't exactly Oscar winning, but frankly, I don't give a shit. The film was awesome and there are segments of animation which are both humorous and entertaining.

Loved it.

Not sure it'll be as praised as Imagine Me And You, but it'll definitely become a cult favourite.

Lucky Dog Leather

It's been over a month since I last posted. Ew...

I am genuinely sorry, lesbos, but I've had a million and 1 other things to do, but my slate is pretty much wiped for now so expect more postage.

Anyway, moving on...

You might have heard of Lucky Dog Leather.

Cult lesbian heroes Jill Bennett & Cathy DeBuono are constantly photographed wearing their products and word is that lesbian director supremo, Angela Robinson, is also a fan.

Well, I thought this would be the perfect time to use my blog as an advertisement, as their products are both hot and define lesbian fashion.

Some of my favourite accessories include this Italian red leather cuff, as modelled by the gorgeous Jill Bennett, and below, the LDL baseball tee.

Best thing is, all of the accessories are custom made, so you know each one has been made with love and affection, especially for you.

And ladies, if I saw a chick wearing some of the belts and cuffs from Lucky Dog?

Top 20 Gorgeous Ladies 2010

That's right, it's that time of year again. And I have to say, it's my favourite time of year.

Let's see how my taste has changed over the year, shall we?

20. Clementine Ford. (Last year: 16.)

You'll probably remember Clementine from The L Word as Molly Kroll. Or you might just remember her because her Mother is Cybill Shepherd. OR you could remember her because she's dating Linda Perry of 3 non-blondes. Whatever, you'll remember her. She's hot.

19. Kathryn Prescott. (Last year: 19.)

Remember when the word 'Naomily' wasn't even on the lesbian vocabulary radar? No, me neither. As one half of the teenage gay couple on the UK teen show Skins, Ms. Prescott has captured the heart of many women, both under-age and of age.

18. Michelle Rodriguez. (New entry.)

I have to admit, I never used to see the attraction to M. Rod. (Hence her absence from last year's list.) However, now I feel like I must have been crazy. Most of you will know her from Lost or perhaps Bloodrayne, but I just know her for being hot.

17. Zooey Deschanel. (New entry.)

Know what? Quirky is in. Meet Zooey Deschanel: indie flick princess and 50s style beauty. Every time I see her, I think I'm looking at a model from the Some Like It Hot era. Those eyes, that hair and especially that zany personality are what makes Zooey so gorgeous.

16. Lea Michele. (New entry.)

Why wasn't Lea on last year's list, you ask? Well, because last year, no one knew her. Unless you're a hardcore musical theatre buff who knows her from her Spring Awakening days. Anyways, most people just know Lea from Glee. Her character Rachel is probably the least hot person ever. But Lea? Lea is a hottie.

15. Penelope Cruz. (New entry.)

You know what they say: everyone loves a little Latino. Oh, is it just me who says that? Well in my opinion, a girl with an accent is hot. But a Spanish girl with an accent? Too hot for words.

14. Jennifer Beals. (Last year: 8.)

Possibly the oldest woman on our list, but she's definitely still got it. Whether you know her from playing pushy Bette Porter on The L Word or from 80s classic dance film Flashdance, you'll know that Beals is the hottest over 40 to grace this list.

13. Lily Loveless. (Last year: 11.)

I remember how much of a controversy it was last year for me to put Loveless ahead of Prescott. Well, she's done it again. I can't help it: I have a thing for blondes. And the quality of Loveless' acting and her character Naomi in Skins probably adds to her attraction for me.

12. Sophia Bush. (New entry.)

Why wasn't Sophia on my list last year? To tell you the truth, I have no f*cking idea. She is probably most well known from her role in One Tree Hill, but it was seeing her in John Tucker Must Die and Nip/Tuck that made me fall in love with her. Mainly because she kisses girls. Mmm.

11. Fergie. (New entry.)

Okay, I admit, I'm drooling just looking at the above picture. I can't help it. That voice, that body... The fact that she's bisexual makes her even hotter. There are no words to describe Fergie other than 'exquisite'.

10. Megan Fox. (Last year: 3.)

Ahh Megan. Does she need an introduction? She claims she's bisexual. She claims she wants to wrestle Olivia Wilde. She says some pretty damn stupid things. But stick some tape over her mouth and we're good to go.

9. Jill Bennett. (Last year: 5.)

Don't you just love those girls who are so obviously gay yet so feminine at the same time? Well, I do. I'd say that was pretty much 'my type'. And Jill ticks all the boxes. She's fiery, fantastic and bloody hilarious. Tune into series 3 of Dante's Cove if you want to see her in action.

8. Cheryl Cole. (New entry.)

I remember kicking myself last year for forgetting to put Cheryl in my top 20. And that was before she had a successful solo career. Having recently toured with the Black Eyed Peas, Cheryl is definitely one of my favourite British ladies. And she'll be happy to know that she beat pal Fergie in my list.

7. Angelina Jolie. (Last year: 4.)

Yeah, yeah, the picture above is only of Angelina's back. So sue me. That is the damn finest back I have ever seen and that's the way it's staying. Lips. Eyes. Smoky voice. Angelina has everything. She even has Brad Pitt. Damn.

6. Julie Benz. (New entry.)

I feel like no photographs actually capture the true beauty of Julie Benz. Star of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dexter and most recently playing a lap dancing lesbian in Desperate Housewives, I believe that Benz has the power to turn and gay men straight.

5. Rachel Shelley. (Last year: 17.)

It may sound silly, being British and all, but one of the main things that attracts me to Rachel Shelley is her incredibly sexy accent. Not only that but she has a body to die for. I wouldn't kick her out of bed.

4. Sara Ramirez. (Last year: 2.)

Remember that not so catchy thing I said about Latino ladies? Same applies here. One half of Grey's Anatomy's cutest (and happiest!) couple, Sara is extremely talented and extremely hot. Not only does she have an incredible singing voice, Sara can pull off the hottest scenes. Damn.

3. Eliza Dushku. (Last year: 1.)

Well, well, well, seems last year's winner has been knocked off her number one spot. Doesn't mean she's gotten any less hot, though. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse, Tru Calling... Eliza has been in a whole batch of great shows and she's looked hot in every single one.

2. Jessica Capshaw. (Last year: 12.)

As Callie & Arizona got more air time on Grey's Anatomy, Jessica just kept getting hotter and hotter. The daughter of actress Kate Capshaw and step-daughter of directing legend Steven Spielberg, Capshaw was brought up in a sparkly atmosphere and that must have rubbed off on her sex appeal. Those legs. HOT DAMN.

So, who's number one? I bet you're thinking 'but you've named all the hot girls!' You're wrong. Oh, so very wrong.

1) Lady GaGa. (New entry.)

Bet you didn't see that coming! Well, unless you know me personally. An unconventional beauty, Lady GaGa has captured the heart (and vagina) of so many lesbian and bisexual women. Remember what I said about quirky girls being the 'in' thing? After seeing the Queen herself live last week, I can safely say that she has the best ass, best legs and best everything of anyone I've ever seen. And the fact that she was caught kissing a girl a couple of weeks ago doesn't hurt either.
