Kanye Comes Out...as Pro-Gay!


Straight men rock the pink, too... Posted by Picasa

Caught All Eyes on Kanye West on MTV last night, and I have to say that I was really impressed that he spoke openly about the topic of homophobia in hip-hop culture. I enjoyed hearing him talk about his experience with his gay cousin and the way in which it helped him face his own homophobia. Read about it here, yo!

Sad to hear that another famous emcee who loves to talk about gay people just went into rehab. Until he's out of the hospital, get your homo-hop dose here.

That's Doctor Dyke to You...


Kerry Weaver sizes up the competition... Posted by Picasa

Move over Dr. Weaver...there's another lesbian ER doc coming to TV Land! It seems Paula Marshall (Cheaper by the Dozen, Veronica Mars) will play Regina, a smart, funny, mature lesbian character on CBS's new sitcom Out of Practice (due this fall) -- by "mature" I mean that Regina is refreshingly past the coming-out stage, and is secure in herself and her sexuality. According to AfterEllen.com, Regina even teases her brother in one scene from the pilot, claiming that she's slept with more women than he has. And since Out of Practice is being brought to us by the creators of Frasier, we know we can expect great material all around.

Who's ready for a trip to the ER?

Spermed-Out.


More sperm? Been there, done that. Posted by Picasa

The good news is that Melissa Etheridge has declared herself in remission from cancer, and she and partner Tammy Lynn Michaels are considering having a baby --
The even better news is that they won't be seeking the assistance of David Crosby this time around, as Etheridge has been quoted as saying:

"We won't be using my friend...David has been there and done that." (Extra)

Pretty Things


Curves. "That's hot." Posted by Picasa

For those who have access to HBO or HBO on demand, they are currently screening a fabulous documentary called Pretty Things. From the website:

This feature documentary focuses on the life stories of a remarkable group of women who had prominent careers as Burlesque Queens over 50 years ago, interwoven with the personal story of writer/director/producer Liz Goldwyn, who gets to know each woman in hopes of telling and preserving their stories while exploring her own fascination with the disappearing art of burlesque.

The film's highlight is Zorita -- an outrageous and outspoken beauty, known for her on-stage "snake routines" and her off-stage lesbian love affairs. (At one point in the film she says something like, "What do I need a man for? A hairy chest? A limp joint?) The former burlesque stars are one-part Miami-Beach-Grandma and one part sizzling-sex-kittin...making for an all-around enjoyable ride! A must see.
