Afternoon Delight: Outfest honors Jane Lynch, Salon chooses the most pivotal gay sex scenes

 
 

If you’re sitting around this Monday afternoon counting your piles of cash and wondering how you can help a good cause and add to your lesbian paraphernalia collection, I’ve got good news for you! Diva is auctioning off all kinds of sweet treats from your favorite lesbians and actresses who play lesbians.

They’ve got Rachel Shelley and Tegan and Sara autographed items and there’s even something called a "Lily Bundle" and a "Kat Bundle" for you Skins nutters fans. All proceeds benefit breast cancer research.

So you know how Hollywood has run out of ideas and now they have to pillage your childhood and ruin your memories every time they want to make a new movie? Well, Clue is definitely happening, and The Washington Post has some casting suggestions that could make the remake more than tolerable: Lauren Graham as Mrs. Peacock, Maggie Gyllenhaal as Miss Scarlet, and Portia de Rossi as Mrs. White. (I’m sold. Where do I buy my ticket?)

Salon.com posted a slideshow of cinema’s most pivotal gay sex scenes, and four of the nine are substantially sapphic. Personal Best, Bound, Mulholland Drive and Wild Things made the cut.

Superhero Jane Lynch was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from Outfest over the weekend. (Not a bad Thursday, what with the two Emmy nominations as well.)

Glee‘s Chris Colfer presented her with her award in a moving speech:

Tonight is all about Jane … I must admit, she’s a breath of fresh air in a very, very polluted city. In just one year, Jane has made television history by turning the role of Sue Sylvester into an icon and was nominated for an Emmy for it just this morning. If you ask her about all of her accomplishments and achievements, she will tell you about meeting her wife or, humbly, give the credit for her success to somebody else.

I remember the first I met Jane; it was when we were doing the pilot for Glee and I introduced myself and then I awkwardly sat next to her for four-and-a-half hours and stared at her. And rather than shooing me off, she friended me. Everything she does is absolutely genius and we love her even more for her honesty. She’s been a tough and tireless advocate for equal rights for LGBT folks. Jane embodies the positivity that only can come from being yourself. I’m so proud call her a role model, a mentor, the cool aunt of our Glee family, a spiritual leader and a friend.

Damn you, Kurt. Always making me cry.

Movieline teased me with this headline today: Emma Roberts prefers girls. They’re just using their deductive reasoning when examining stills from the new film It’s Kind of a Funny Story.

During her press tour for Salt an MTV reporter ran through all the projects listed as "in development" on Angelina Jolie‘s IMDB page, just to see if there is any truth to them.

And finally, bringing it back around to Hollywood destroying your childhood, Hasbro is unveiling an "emo" Strawberry Shortcake at Comic-Con this year. It’s part of a marketing push for a new toy line, animated series, and direct-to-DVD movie. "Goodbye, poofy grandma bonnet; hello, yarn hipster hat," says the New York Times. "You can have my Strawberry Shortcake in Big Apple City VHS when you pry it from my cold, dead, plastic-berry-scented hands," says Heather Hogan.

Today’s Afternoon Delight is brought to you by Kerry Washington. (Seriously good choice, Andrea.)
