Meryl Streep will be returning to the big screen this summer with the romantic comedy Hope Springs. Check out the film’s trailer below.

I really hope Streep and Tommy Lee Jones don’t have a threesome with the neighbor lady. Hope Springs hits theaters in the US on August 10.

Over the weekend, out actress Lindsay Lohan attended the 98th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C.

Get ready for yet another trailer for Prometheus. The international launch trailer features both Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace so you know it’s worth a gander. (This movie looks way too scary for me.)

Congratulations to Cyndi Lauper, who will be honored by the US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration for her LGBTQ advocacy work. Lauper, who co-founded the True Colors fund, will receive her prize on May 9 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in Washington D.C.

Kristen Stewart is on the cover of May’s Jalouse magazine. Oh yeah — and there’s some dude sitting next to her. That guy (actor Garrett Hedlund) needs to learn Stewart’s smizing technique.

On Wednesday Carol Leifer, Poppy Champlin and Erin Foley will be taking over the Hollywood Improv at 8 p.m. for the monthly Gays R Us comedy show.

Psalm One is at it again. The out rapper starred in and directed the NSFW music video “Night Games,” featuring ThaiOne Davis and the Chicago Outfit Roller Derby squad in their underwear.

Starting today, the comic strip Funky Winkerbean will feature a storyline about a same-sex couple planning to attend their high school prom. As the comic celebrates its 40th anniversary cartoonist Tom Batiuk spoke out in support of the LGBTQ community. Batiuk stated in a recent interview, “As I sit in on the classes at my old high school, I see how the younger generation’s attitude towards gays is more open and accepting than that of their predecessors. It shows promise that this emerging generation will one day bring this cultural war to an end. Until then, this story is an attempt to reach across the divide and speak to the intolerance that still exists on the other side.”

On May 8 k. d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang are taking over the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium (1 Paul Shaffer Drive) in Thunder Bay, ON. The show starts at 8 p.m. so don’t be tardy for the party.

Lesbian/Bi Tweet of the day!

Out photographer Tasya van Ree shared an inspiring photo with her Twitter followers. This photo is outstanding! And I’m pretty sure there was no photoshopping involved.
