AfterEllen.com works the lesbian/bi pop culture beat with a fun, feminist perspective on film, television, music, books, and sports. We also cover  lifestyle issues like lesbian sex and dating, coming out, and our take on the current political climate as it affects our community. AE delivers new and exclusive celebrity interviews, film reviews, TV recaps, original video and more, and is a continually evolving website for women.

Founded in 2002, AfterEllen.com quickly became the largest and most comprehensive website dedicated to the representation of lesbian/bi women in popular culture. Since then, the site has continued to expand its reach beyond coverage of  pop culture,  and is now the go-to resource for a unique lesbian/bi perspective on all entertainment news.

We have a solid reputation as a reputable site run by real journalists, conducting insightful, factually correct interviews – all of which means actors, publicists, managers, TV studios, film companies trust AfterEllen as a place to connect with online fandom.
