My Weekly Girlcrush: Ksenia Solo

Who? What? Why? Well... If you've ever watched Lost Girl, chances are, you'll recognize Ksenia.

Remember when I asked your opinion on whether or not I should watch Canadian fantasy-drama, Lost Girl?

Well, I did. And I'm kinda glad I did, too. Even if it was only for this little lady.

You eagle-eyed movie goers may remember her from 2010 Blockbuster, Black Swan, in which she played the bitchy Veronica, and she's also had guest roles in Nikita, Cold Case and Missing. Safe to say, Solo is talented.

It's possibly her endearing, quirky personality that attracts me more, however. As Kenzi in Lost Girl, Ksenia brings humour, wit and a lovable quality to her character, and judging from the photo above, she's kind of like that in real life, too.

What's more is that she compared the show to Buffy in one interview, which I couldn't get over because I'm personally saying that all the time.

Oh yeah, her eyes are also incredible. And those legs. Wow. Stop me before I get carried away.

Out Lesbian Actress Amber Heard Attacks Closeted Hollywood

You gays have all (excuse the pun) Heard of Amber, right?

Well, if you haven't, she's one of the few openly gay actresses (who is also known for her modelling), who is known for her roles in Pineapple Express, Zombieland and most recently, The Rum Diary.

Today, UK newspaper The Telegraph reported the following quote from Amber.

One of Hollywood’s few openly homosexual actresses, Amber Heard criticises those stars who remain in the closet.
“You can’t respect yourself if you’re afraid to be who you are,” says Heard, 25, who appears opposite Johnny Depp in his latest film, The Rum Diary.
“It requires bravery to do something no one else around you is doing, but the risk was outweighed by the possibility of playing into this horribly detrimental lie that some in Hollywood perpetuate.”
(Source | The Telegraph)
Now personally, I'm not sure how I feel about this. I mean yes, it would be perfect if all of the closeted actors and actresses could come out right now and support the gay community, but I think we're all forgetting about the well-being of these people and their families.
For most stars, their art is their source of income. By coming out of the closet, they're more likely to face homophobic discrimination, especially when it comes to them being cast in new jobs, not to mention closed-minded parents who would attack them for being 'bad role models' to their children.
I'm not supporting homophobia here, I mean HELLO, I write a lesbian blog. But I think the way in which Amber is suggesting that all gay celebrities should just come out like she did is out of the question, at least in the current political climate.
To me, calling their lives a 'lie' is extremely disrespectful. Every member of the LGBTQ community knows how hard it is to come out when you're not in the limelight, never mind when you're under so much pressure whilst being watched by the public.
What I'm trying to say is yes, it would be wonderful if we lived in a world where these public figures could freely be themselves, but there are also underlying circumstances and factors of personal choice that blur the lines slightly.

Transgender Day Of Remembrance

Yesterday (Sunday, 20th November, 2011) was Transgender Day of Remembrance.

I know, this isn't specifically lesbian news but transgenders are part of our community too, so I hope I don't receive any qualms over this post.

As you may or may not know, earlier this year, 14 year old, Jamey Rodemeyer committed suicide as a result of homophobic bullying.

What you're probably less likely to know is that 50% of transgender people have attempted to commit suicide by the age of 20, whether they were successful or not, and at least one transgender is killed every month in America alone.

Although it was remembrance yesterday, I'd like you to take a moment, if you will, to remember those who committed suicide just for being who they are.

Also, if you ever witness any kind of bullying please tell someone. And if the bully is your friend, tell them to think twice before they say anything, because suicide? No sane, moralistic human being wishes that upon another person.

My Weekly Girlcrush: Emma Stone

Now my annual Top 20 Hot Ladies (click to see the list) is officially over and done with, it's time to get back to my "Weekly Girlcrush" segment. And boy, have I got a hottie for you today.

Yep, that's right, Emma Stone is my next culprit.

I've never understood the stigma about redheads, although some would not agree.

Anyway, I actually love Emma Stone, not only because she's an unconventional(?) beauty, but because I can't help but fall in love with a lady with an amazing sense of humour.

If you've seen any of her movies - Easy A, Zombieland, The Help, for instance - you'll know that not only is she talented in the general acting department, but she's also relentlessly funny and appears to not even realize how funny she actually is. And we all know how hot people who don't realize their full talent are, right? Just me? Nah, I'm sure some of you will agree with this one.

There are also some incredible photographs that I've seen of her which put her in the 'beautiful on the outside' category. She actually has the most symmetrical mouth I've ever seen. Yeah, that's weird, but I have a thing for lips. So sue me.

What's more is that she's reportedly said that she's "open to a lesbian relationship" and that Cristina Hendricks (again, I'm drooling) is her girl crush. Let me give you a minute to get that image into your head...

In fact, I'm going to have to end this post right now because I can't stop thinking about the possibility of those two. Enjoy.

UK Prime Minister Threatens To Cut Aid To Homophobic Countries

Hey gays, here's another step up the UK have made this week: Prime Minister David Cameron seems to have explicitly stated that he will "cut aid to countries who refuse to overturn their bans on homosexuality."

Cameron, who has in the past been dubbed homophobic himself, seems to have changed his attitude completely - and the Ugandan Government are already furious.

As homosexual acts are illegal in Uganda and the majority of other African countries, this could be a huge threat to their continent. However, the fact that Mr. Cameron is standing up for gay rights on a worldwide scale appears to be one of the best things he's done for the country.

Furthermore, although he once said that legalizing gay marriage was not an option, there have now been several reports implying that Cameron wishes to make same-sex marriage legal by the year 2015.

Personally, I did not support him in the last UK election, but it seems that I am changing my mind about him. I wouldn't consider myself a Conservative party member, yet it is clear that Cameron's intentions are positive for the LGBTQ community.

Now we just have to see whether he lives up to his word...

What do you gays think about Cameron and how do you think he will go about handling these issues in the future?

Rihanna... Is GAY

Okay, okay, she's not.

Well, probably.

It was reported, however, that "RiRi" was spotted in Paris carrying a lesbian bondage manual.
Here's was TruthDive had to say.

London, Oct 23 (ANI): Rihanna was recently snapped leaving a Paris hotel clutching an “X rated lesbian bondage” manual.
The book, entitled Omahyra and Boyd, is by photographer Ellen von Unwerth, and contains graphic sexual imagery of nudity, women in bondage gear and lesbian lovemaking.
The Barbadian beauty had worked closely with Unwerth in the past, who shot the artwork to promote the singer’s 2009 album ‘Rated R’, the Daily Mail reported.
Rihanna, 23, recently performed her ‘LOUD’ tour in Paris. 
(Source | TruthDive) 

Well I'm not too sure what this means.

Surely Rihanna isn't planning on doing another S&M style video, this time with lesbians?

Hopefully, Rihanna is subtly coming out to us. (We know it's never gonna happen, but we can dream, right?)

National Coming Out Day

Hey you gays!

So yesterday was National Coming Out day. The day to tell those selected people that you're gay, or indeed tell them your "coming out story".

I'll start you off with the lovely Portia de Rossi's take on the whole situation.

[My sexuality is] a part of me that I really like. But it's not the totality of me. It's not a passion of mine to become political in any way, but I do think it's important to see gay men and women having big careers and very full, rich lives.
(Source | AfterEllen)

Amen. I personally agree with every word.

Okay, my turn.

I knew I was gay from the time I was around 8 years old. It wasn't until I was 14 that I got my first girlfriend and told my closes friends that I was attracted to women, but they accepted it straight away and didn't give it a second though. (I guess that's just my generation). I must have been around 16 when my parents found out.

My Mother, bless her, caught me watching The L Word, and asked me if I was gay. When I said yes, she reacted in a bad way. She came home from work crying on several occasions, and my Dad said it made him feel sick. Out of guilt, I told her I was kidding, and I went back in the closet for another year.

However, I couldn't stay in there for long - it wasn't who I was. Playing "straight" wasn't my forte, even if I did look kinda femme. This time, they were much more angry about it. Not upset, but angry. But after time, I introduced my parents to a girl I was in a serious relationship with.

They didn't like it, but they accepted it. They even let her stay over at my house; something that a couple of years previously wouldn't have even been an option.

So my "story" isn't the most thrilling and it's filled with passive aggressive homophobia, but it's still mine. I'm so proud of my parents now, because they accept me for who I am.

Which reminds me: it does get better.

Now it's your turn.

Tell me your coming out stories below! Maybe yours is funnier or happier than mine.

Don't be shy!

Brittana & Calzona Return!

No, I'm not talking about folded up pizza and I'm not singing "Rule Brittania" to you in honour of my British heritage.

You probably already know, but this week we saw the return of two of our favourite "couples"* to the screen.

First up, we had Glee on Tuesday, which saw the return of Brittany (Heather Morris) and Santana (Naya Rivera).

Now there wasn't much in the way of obvious lesbianism during the season 3 premiere of Glee this week, but we have been promised many a time by the creators, including top dog, Ryan Murphy, that this season we will see Santana accepting herself.

Whether or not Brittany will be by her side is another matter completely, but it'll be interesting to see how the writers handle a lesbian couple on the show. And if the gay couple, Kurt & Blaine, are anything to go by, they'll execute it with class and dignity.

And in Grey's Anatomy this Thursday, we saw the return of Callie (Sara Ramirez), Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and their daughter Sofia.

Last season was a roller coaster ride for Calzona - they moved in together, Arizona moved to Africa, they broke up, Callie got pregnant with Mark's (Eric Dane) baby, they fought, they got back together, they got caught in a car crash, Callie gave birth and they got married.

Did you get all that? I told you it was a roller coaster.

Anyway, this week's double season opener saw Calzona pretty much as a happy couple with a few adorable scenes of the two of them with baby Sofia.

Jessica Capshaw, who plays Arizona, has recently said that Calzona are currently just enjoying married life, but expect something to go wrong for them any time soon.

I mean, it wouldn't be Grey's without drama, right?

Do you lesbos watch either of these shows? What are you hoping will happen next for these couples?

You can catch Glee on FOX, Tuesdays 8/7c and Grey's Anatomy on ABC, Thursdays 9/8c if you live in the States.

*Brittana are not officially a couple, I know, but you just wait.

Lost Girl: Is It Worth Watching?

Firstly, apologies for the lack of posts, ladies. I've had internet trouble for far too long. Anyway, I'm baaaaack!

So, I've been told by several of my friends to watch the show Lost Girl.

Firstly, I'm far too lazy to google it to find out what it's about and secondly, the title "Lost Girl" for a TV show just reminds me of Gossip Girl, which I clearly do not watch.

From what my friends have told me, it's a supernatural type drama (which makes me think Buffy), but they've also said it sucks in some areas, i.e. the plot lines are sometimes lame. (Hello, Gossip Girl).

However, I do know that there's lesbian/bisexual characters in it.

That last one is usually a deal-maker for me, but I really have no interest whatsoever in this show. Maybe it's the sucky title, maybe it's that it just looks low-budget (and not in a good way), but I don't want to watch it.

So I challenge you/want your opinion.

Should I watch 'Lost Girl'? If yes, what do you think will persuade me to do so?

Rizzoli & Isles: Will They Or Won't They?

Every lesbian who is up to date with their television should have watched, or at least heard of, TNT's smash-hit TV show, Rizzoli & Isles.

The show is based on books by Tess Gerritsen and stars the lovely Angie Harmon (left) and the increasingly perfect Sasha Alexander (right).

However, if you do watch the show, you'll notice that there's a lot of something fans like to call "lesbian sub-text" going on. If you want to know more, read Dorothy Snarker's R&I recaps. (Click!)

Basically, think Xena & Gabrielle. But better. And hotter. (Unpopular opinion? I don't care).

Anyway, if you watch and you're gay (and probably even if you're straight!), you'll notice a lot of little things - loving glances, queer references in some of the characters' dialogue... We've even been subject to a little ass-slapping, bed sharing and going "undercover" in a lesbian bar.

If you watch it, I want to know your opinions. Will Rizzoli & Isles ever become more than just best friends? Should they get together at all? Or should it be kept at a lesbian sub-text level?

If you don't watch it, I suggest you do. You won't regret it. Mainly because Sasha Alexander is the cutest thing ever.

US viewers can see Rizzoli & Isles every Monday at 10/9c on TNT. UK viewers can watch the show from the beginning this September on Alibi.

Julie Benz Plays A Lesbian... AGAIN!

I know, right? This must be proof that God exists.

You'll probably remember this happening in Desperate Housewives:

If you don't, then you should probably get to watching the episode she starred in.

Anyway, it's now common knowledge that Julie Benz played a lesbian once more in US TV show Royal Pains.

Now I haven't seen it yet, but I've heard that the Buffy & Angel bombshell makes the cutest couple with on-screen girlfriend, Camille Chen.

Which then got me thinking...

Which actresses would you like to see play gay, even if it's for just one scene?

On my list, there'd be Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Caterina Scorsone (Private Practice) and Lea Michele (Glee), alongside a few others.

Tell me below who you'd like to see go gay for pay and I'll probably tell you if I agree!

My Weekly Girlcrush.

You'll know her from Legally Blonde, Walk The Line, Sweet Home Alabama, Cruel Intentions and a crap load more movies.

Yep, my Girlcrush this week is Reese Witherspoon.

Not only does she appear to be the sweetest woman ever, she jokes (?) about being a lesbian, as seen in this video here, doing an interview for her newest release Water For Elephants, which she stars in beside British Twilight actor, Robert Pattinson.

You heard it, Reese claims she is at least 55% lesbian. And I know, she's been married to a man, she has kids, but whatever. I like to think she was telling the truth.

Besides us now questioning her sexuality, Reese is so talented, she makes me melt with every movie I see her in.

When I first watched Cruel Intentions, I was stunned by her acting and her convincing good girl routine. Her real Hollywood 'moment' came with Walk The Line, in which she played Johnny Cash's wife, June Carter Cash, and later bagged herself a Best Actress Oscar for her stunning portrayal.

Anyone who knows me knows I am a sucker for a Southern American accent. (I know, no one likes a slack-jawed Texan accent, so I really don't know why I'm so attracted to it.) So when she first played Southern in Sweet Home Alabama, I melted. Imagine my luck when she did it again in Walk The Line.

She always plays a really sweet character, which is odd because I usually love badass bitches. But there's something about Reese that makes her so endearing.

Her talent is definitely what I love most about her, but I also have a thing for blondes and she's quite easy on the eyes, if you ask me.

So, Reese Witherspoon. How do you feel about her?

Born This Way Banned... AGAIN?!

Yep, you heard it. Lady Gaga's epic gay-loving album, Born This Way, has been banned in yet another country.

There's Gaga above, who won the Fashion Icon prize this week at the CDFA Fashion Awards.

Also this week, BTW was banned in Lebanon, after Father Abdo Abu Kassm, director of the Lebanon Catholic Information Centre announced the following:
"If they are going to offend us we are going to cancel the album. We will not accept that anyone insult the Virgin Mary or Jesus or Christianity ... Call us traditional, call us backward, call us whatever you want. We will not accept it."
So basically, Father Kassm is inviting us to call his people ridiculous. Surely if those religious people that this records 'offends' hate the idea of religious 'insults' so much, they just wouldn't buy it?

Also, have Lebanon not heard how Gaga herself is Catholic?

Gaga frequently mentions her love for God and her faith, prays every time she goes on-stage and her tweets reflect that fact.

Furthermore, she has explained the meaning of the song 'Judas' - one of the songs which is causing this controversy, and have revealed that Judas is simply a metaphor for a guy she dated and kept going back to, even though he betrayed her. (Which is sort of what happened in the Bible).

I'm also pretty sure that Gaga's hit single Born This Way, which contains the lyrics "No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgender life, I'm on the right track, baby, I was born to survive", were some of those words that also offended said Catholic religion mongers.

Why don't they just censor or cut those words from the album? I mean, I'm sure Gaga would be opposed to it, but it doesn't mean that those in Lebanon who are struggling with their sexuality should be forbidden from hearing her song about individuality.

Personally, I find this ridiculous that today, free speech and freedom to purchase which music records you want to purchase are forbidden in certain countries.

Which country do you think will ban Born This Way next? Comment below!

Super Lesbian Photos

Okay, I can't be the only one who sees a an old photograph they've never come across before and gets excited about the profound lesbianity involved in the picture.


My reason for saying this is as follows:

Most people have probably already seen this, but being an idiot like I am, I hadn't before now.

Yep, that's previously married lesbian couple Melissa Etheridge (left) and her ex-wife Tammy Lynn Michaels (right). And if you don't know who the one in the middle is, well, get out of my sight. That's obviously Jessica Capshaw of Grey's Anatomy and The L Word fame.

I know Capshaw isn't a lesbian, she's married to a man and has two children, but she plays lesbians. And apparently, she associates with them too!

So, I just wanted to tell you that it made me, in teenage internet terms, 'squee'. (And I will never, ever use that word again, I promise).

What are your favourite lesbian-packed photographs?

Send me some links in the comments so I can s**e to them too!

Monday 30 May 2011

My Weekly Girlcrush.

My crush this week is Meg Griffin.

I totally lie. No one likes Meg. (She's from Family Guy, if you weren't in on the joke...)

But my Girlcrush this week is the gorgeous Mila Kunis, the woman behind cartoon Meg's voice.

That's right, you may have only seen her in 2010 Oscar winning blockbuster Black Swan, or maybe, if you're a lesbian veteran, you'll have seen her in After Sex, in which she plays one half of a girl-on-girl couple.

Okay, firstly, Mila Kunis is shit hot. Look at her eyes, her mouth, her cute little button nose... Then there's her body. If you did see Black Swan, you'll have seen her lesbian dream sequence with lead actress, Natalie Portman, if you didn't, well, click THIS LINK. (That links to an edited version of the scene, as YouTube doesn't allow the whole thing. It's clearly too hot for them.)

I would have posted a picture of her body above too, but this Ukranian beauty (yep, she was born in the Ukraine) gets little attention paid to her beautiful face, so I thought that was just as good.

By playing the annoying Meg in Family Guy, and having starring roles in After Sex, Black Swan and The Book of Eli, we all know that Kunis is talented.

Not only that but she's also not shy of the odd lesbian scene - Meg also had a little snog with a girl on Family Guy, after she left prison...

Anyway, Mila is a hottie. Whether you like it or not. And there's no denying she's talented.

So get your movie head on and watch her films. You'll pretty much love all of them.

Happy Pride Season!

So this weekend, I attended my first pride festival of the year.

And you know what that means...


Ohh yeahhh, get the beer out ladies, I know you'll all be attending.

Personally, I thought the first UK pride of the year was actually pretty great!

My weekend consisted of spending far too much money on alcoholic beverages and cigarettes, forcing my legless friend to kiss a variety of unaesthetically-pleasing people and being pleasantly surprised by the live acts that performed on the main stage.

So which festivals are you ladies going to this year? London? New York? San Francisco? Let me know!

And maybe I'll tell you which I'm going to... ;)

Glee Is The S**t!

Just a quick one for you Glee lovers.

Pretty much everyone loves the current gayest show on television.

So here's some of the latest bloopers from the series, starring our lesbian favourite Santana (Naya Rivera) and her on/off crush, Brittany (Heather Morris).


Sunday 22 May 2011

My Weekly Girlcrush.

Move over Sara Ramirez, there's a new lesbian Latina on the block. (Please don't really move over, Sara, I love you.)

We all watch Glee. And if you didn't before, you do now.

Now that there's a new, all singing, all dancing lesbian couple for you to ogle over.

When I say 'couple', they haven't actually got together... Yet.

But Glee's Naya Rivera (who plays Santana Lopez on the show) is hot stuff.

I mean, look at any picture of her and she looks fucking steaming. (Hot, that is. Not drunk).

Anyway, it's not just that she's physically perfect that I love her. Just last week, Naya presented the GLAAD awards and did a darn good job of it. She had comedic timing, charisma and, of course, that gorgeous Latina face.

Not only that, but presenting the awards showed that Naya really does care about gay rights. She both plays a fictional TV character and also advocates the gays in her every day life. She speaks about her role as both rewarding and exciting and has openly expressed that she'd like her and Brittany (played by Heather Morris) to officially get together.

It really does appear that although she plays a bitch in Santana on-screen, off-screen she has a heart of gold. I mean, I love bad girls, but good girls are just as attractive sometimes. Take Naya, for example.

So that's why she's my crush of the week. She appears to be just a pretty face, but Naya is caring, loyal to her gay fans and a big ball of sweetness.

You can follow Naya on twitter at

Gay Friendly Websites

Okay, so we've all heard of those typically gay-friendly websites.

But here's a social networking site that appears the be the most gay friendly social network to ever hit the internet.

Not only that, but seems to be RUN by gays.

I'm serious, every other follower I have is gay or lesbian. I rarely see straight people on tumblr, and when I do, they're usually gay-friendly.

In fact, traditional views seem to have doubled back on themselves.

Rather than people being homophobic, it appears that if you're homophobic on tumblr, the homo-lovers hate on yo' ass so hard you'll have to delete your profile.

Today, I signed in. And these few lesbian-orientated pictures came into view on the FIRST PAGE of my dashboard...

What did I tell you? RUN BY GAYS.

Seriously, it's amazing. You follow who you want, you don't follow who you don't want...

There's so much more to do on tumblr, too. You can post text, pictures, video, music... Pretty much anything you want, tumblr does it.

It's also a really easy way of creating a blog for yourself. (A damn sight easier than writing this one for you!)

So give it a go. Hope you love it as much as the gays and I do ;)

Monday 16 May 2011

My Weekly Girlcrush.

Okay, there are 2 things to clear up before I start.

1) I'd choose none of the women I mention in this new weekly post over my girlfriend.

2) My yearly Top 20 Gorgeous Ladies is coming up, so I'm just going to choose random people each week that I often find myself crushing on, rather than listing my FAVOURITE ladies.

Now that's out of the way...

Let me introduce you to Adele.

I get it, you don't need to be introduced to her. Everyone knows her.

Not only is she one of the UK's best homegrown talents, she's now absolutely huge in the US.

Her full name is actually Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, but she doesn't need those extra names. She's now one of those pop stars who don't need a last name. (Think Britney, Madonna, Cher, Christina...) Adele is Adele and that's why I love her.

Not only does she have an amazing voice, her song-writing abilities are tremendous. Her current album, 21, peaked at number 1 in over 10 countries. That's a lot of albums sold. Her first album, 19, has sold more than 1,000,000 copies in the United States alone. And she's only 21.

What I really love about Adele, however, is who she's stepped away from the regular 'conventional' pop star exterior. Everyone thinks of a pop star as a stick thin, semi-naked blonde with a wild side and a wild upbringing. (Again, think Britney...) But Adele is far from that.

Anyone who tells me that Adele is 'fat' has another thing coming. She's not obese, she's not 'chubby', she's REAL. Real women don't look like popstars. Think of the last woman you were sat in a room with. Did she look like Nicole Sherzinger? Nope, didn't think so.

Another positive: she has a super pretty face. I mean, she's really easy on the eye. Her lips, her eyes, all beautiful. She's cute.

So Adele, you're my first Weekly Girlcrush. You make me happy, your music makes me sad, but I love you all the same.

A TV Lesbian Wedding?!

Yep, that's right.

If you're a fan of lesbian pop culture on the silver screen, you'll know that tonight is the night that Callie and Arizona get married! ARGHHHHHHH!

If you don't understand what I mean, I'm obviously referring to the lesbian couple on ABC's Grey's Anatomy, played by Sara Ramirez and Jessica Capshaw, who are tying the knot tonight.

I suggest, if you have no idea what I'm talking about, that you get yourself on YouTube and educate yourself about Calzona. Or Callizona. Or CapMirez. Whatever you want to call it.

There have already been a TON of spoilers, pictures and behind the scenes clips from the wedding, so if you've seen them you'll probably know what to expect.

But remember, this is Grey's, and they always have some surprises up their sleeves.

I think it is about time, in related news, that they showed a real, feminine lesbian wedding on television. And I'm hoping that this one is better than Carol's wedding to her female lover on Friends, which starred an ugly hat or ten.

Call me vain, but I want to see something realistic and lesbian on television, not something weird and 90s.

Uh Huh Her News

I'm sure it's a while since we've properly heard of these two gorgeous ladies.

Yep, you all know The L Word's Leisha Hailey on the left, and the equally beautiful one on the right is lead vocalist of their band Uh Huh Her, Camila Grey.

All you really to know is that, right now, the duo are touring North America and Canada, and I'm pretty sure they're headlining an all-girl music fest in the UK in the summer.

The band also have a brand new EP out titled 'Black & Blue', which you can purchase on their website.

Watch the following video to hear how the pair ended up writing a song for Oscar-nominated lesbian movie The Kids Are All Right, starring Annette Bening and Julianne Moore.

The New Naomily?

If you're a Skins UK fan, you're probably going to know who Naomily are.

You know, the really cute lesbian couple from Skins UK's 2nd generation of characters.

Anyway, if you don't know who they are, Naomi (left, Lily Loveless) and Emily (right, Kathryn Prescott) were the most recent teen couple on our screens that portrayed the love of 2 lesbians.

Until now.

The 3rd generation of Skins UK has brought us pansexual Franky (Dakota Blue Richards), whom some believed at first was a transgendered character.

Anyway, the straight-laced, popular Mini (played by Freya Mavor) appears now to have a little bit of a crush on Franky.

Previously, fans saw a young, straight girl in Mini, who lost her virginity to her then boyfriend this series.

However, the series finale hinted a few times at Minky's relationship becoming something more.

But WAIT! There's another person in the mix.

With Franky being pansexual, it seems that she's also caught the eye of a male friend too. Matty (Sebastian De Souza) is clearly in love with her, making it hard for Mini to get a look in.

Anyway, a lot of fans boycotted the show this year, claiming the cast looked 'boring' and many believed they wouldn't live up to the first two generations.

However, if you give generation 3 a chance, they're actually an interesting lot.

You should check it out. Then tell me what you think of Franky & Mini's little love triangle.

Canada or the US?

I'm guessing, as most of my readers are of American origin, that most of you are screaming: WHOA WHOA WHOA, AMERICA IS SO MUCH BETTER.

However, I - a wholly British citizen - am on a much more unbiased debating ground and therefore feel I should express my opinion here.

"What does this have to do with gays and lesbians?" you ask.

Well, the more literature I read about gay marriage in both Canada and the United States, the more I am pushed away from the US and pulled toward Canada.

Of course, we all know that gay marriage is legal everywhere in Canada, not just in 6 poxy states like it is in America. But there is more to the matter.

For instance, in the article I just read by Clifford Krauss, (click his name for a link to the article), he explains that once gay marriage was legalized in Canada, there was little concern or backlash against it. I mean, of course there was some when it came to super, super Catholic parts of the church, but it was nothing compared to the States.

Krauss writes "When Massachusetts' highest court ruled for gay marriage, the issue loomed over American politics." He also reveals how even the most democratic, liberal Presidential candidates vowed to be unsupportive when it came to homosexual marriage.

All this makes me think of how closed-minded America seems. A lot of the opposition against gay marriage's legalization wasn't even from the opinions of those Americans who were overly religious. Some of the opposition came from people who had just been 'brought up that way'. That is, brought up to hate, or at least dislike, gay people.

With Canada's current social and politic state, it seems relatively easy to conclude that Canada would be a much more welcoming place for gay people and their families to live.

However, I wonder if this is not the case, and some of the things I've been reading are misleading?

If you're from either Canada or the United States, please comment and tell me your thoughts on this issue. I am extremely curious, but to me, Canada seems to be winning here.

Please prove me wrong - or right!

Another Struggle For Calzona?

Yep, you must know who I mean when I say 'Calzona' by now.

Obviously I mean gay surgeons from Grey's Anatomy, Callie Torres and Arizona Robbins, played by Sara Ramirez and Jessica Capshaw.

Well, if you don't want to hear a sneak peek of Ramirez singing in the upcoming musical and you're avoiding spoilers, DO NOT WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW.

So what do you lesbians think?

Is the person in the bed who you think it is? Where is Arizona at this time?

I for one am super excited about the musical. I was a bit cautious at first because I thought it'd suck, but this actually looks intense and pretty much what Grey's used to be.

Although Grey's Anatomy is currently on hiatus, you can watch new episodes starting March 24th on ABC.

Britain's Favourite Lesbians

Today, Britain's favourite 'lesbians', Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent) and Sian Powers (Sacha Parkinson) will appear inside and on the front cover of UK lesbian magazine, Diva.

The Coronation Street pair give an interview, revealing their own lady crushes and what exactly they think of their characters.

Of course, all of this comes with super cute pictures. This being my favourite so far:

So make sure to pick up the magazine if you kinda love them like I do.

Also, the couple are currently going through a rough patch on the show. Sad times.

Check out this video promo for Friday's episode:

Keep up with Sophie & Sian by watching Corrie on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays on ITV1.

Lady Gaga To Release New Single TOMORROW!

So, little Monsters, who's the biggest gay icon of today?

Whether you love her or loathe her, it's clearly Lady Gaga.

With a serious, political side to her which advocates gay rights to the extreme, Gaga releases music and is seen wearing crazy outfits like there's no tomorrow.

It seems there is no end to her gay advocating related events, but tomorrow, she releases her brand new single, 'Born This Way', which has lyrics that celebrate the LGBT lifestyle, along with our straight allies who were simply born the way they were.

Gaga's new single is sure to become a gay anthem, as no other song - not even one of Elton John fame - celebrates the LGBT society as much as this one is anticipated to. And from the previously released lyrics, it is definitely one to watch.

Look out for the new single tomorrow (11th February) and let me know what you think!

Britanna... On or Off?


As you may or may not know, there's a constant lesbian 'ship', as tumblr addicts call it, within teen comedy/musical TV show Glee.

Yep, if you're a 'Gleek', you'll know of this non-lesbian love that's been hinted at since series 1.

With Jane Lynch playing an officially straight character on the show, lesbi-gleeks - and straight people! - everywhere have been routing for Brittany (Heather Morris) & Santana (Naya Rivera) to get together and have been optimistic ever since this infamous quote:
Santana : Sex is not dating.
Brittany : If it were, Santana and I would be dating.
And, although this is probably old news by now, for you late coming lesbians: BRITANNA ARE ON!

But how do we know that this is not just some rumour? The show's producer, Brad Falchuck, tweeted this earlier on in February:

Who's Gwyneth? I'm pretty sure all of you who don't follow the show are asking. Well none other than Gwyneth Paltrow, of course!

Stay tuned for more info and possibly an opinion or two on how the producers and writers handle the teen romance. With them doing such a good job with Kurt (Chris Colfer) on the show, we assume that Glee will not do the LGBT community an injustice.

So, who's excited?!

Top Lesbian News of 2010.

I know I usually do this blog in December, but I thought it would make more sense doing it in January, just so I don't miss anything.

Obviously at the top of the gay news list for 2010 is the fact that Don't Ask, Don't Tell was repealed, giving gay service members in the US the right to fight for their country.

Helping the cause along the way was Adam Bouska's 'NOH8' campaign, in which hundreds of celebrities got their picture taken (as seen above) to support the marriage and civil service rights of gay people.

In a less up beat, positive side of politics, Constance McMillen made headlines this year refused to go to her high school prom, as the school would not let her take her girlfriend along with her.

Of course, there's always a silver lining - Constance's battle with homophobia from her school was so shocking that it earned her a place on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, in which she was interviewed and respected like any other celebrity. Props, Ellen.

On the entertainment side of things, there were a lot of 'outings' this year. (Take singer Ladyhawke and Amy Winehouse, for example.) But there were also a couple of fake outings that made the media headlines.
Yep, that's right, Nicki Minaj was outed this year as 'bisexual', which excited lesbian fans of hip/hop and r&b everywhere. But Minaj later dismissed the rumours, tweeting that 'us ppl r simple'.

Lesbian fan favourites 'Calzona' are still going strong on Grey's Anatomy (and by 'strong' we mean haven't been killed of yet), whilst, as far as I know, the young lesbians on Pretty Little Liars are also doing the gay community proud.

Lesbian favourite and The L Word alum Jane Lynch continued to be nominated for several awards and was a fan-favourite on Glee in 2010 - her success being something which she finds so surreal.

Although this 'news' is possibly something negative, lesbian reality show The Real L Word started this year, created by our favourite(?) lesbian producer, Ilene Chaiken.

Fabulous (again '?') news for next year too - The Real L Word is back for a second series in 2011, with Whitney apparently being at the forefront. Hmm... Only time will tell, ladies.

So what did I miss? Anything worth noting?
