Lesbian/Bi Quote of the Day:

Today’s quote comes from O magazine’s latest “Favorite Things” issue. Lesbian talk show host Rosie Donnell shared her favorite discovery of 2011:

On my third day at Harpo, some of the women on staff asked me, “Are you wearing a bra?” I said no. I never liked them — they’re like torture devices. “We’re not taping,” I said. But they were horrified. They dragged me to this store called Intimacy. I was thinking, What a pain. Then this woman, the Bra Whisperer — she’s been on Oprah — changed my life. She found me a Prima Donna bra so comfortable, I was stunned. I even bought panties to match. With lace! I’m getting in touch with my feminine side.
