Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (August 29, 2008)


Break out your lighters and polish your Birkenstocks. The Indigo Girls and Missy Higgins are uniting for an East Coast tour in September.

Australian import and openly bisexual singer Higgins will open for the out duo of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers for 10 shows beginning Sept. 11 in Spartanburg, S.C. and ending Sept. 22 in Verona, N.Y.

Night-owl American TV viewers caught Higgins performing “Where I Stood” on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night. Later this fall she will release a new digital EP, titled Where I Stood, which will include never-before-heard tracks, covers and live performances.

Not content simply to be stars of the music and – when stretching the limits of credulity — the film worlds, everyone’s favorite faux-lesbian pop duo t.A.T.u. has broken into fashion. Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova will be the faces of the Russian Marc by Marc Jacobs fall/winter 2008 campaign.

In addition to using t.A.T.u. as spokesmodels, the Russian campaign will be accompanied by a “Marc’s Girls” contest in the Moscow Marc Jacobs boutique to find the “most trendy fashion lovers.”

Any girl — faux lesbian, real lesbian, not lesbian — can try out at the open photo casting from Sept. 2-16.

Speaking of t.A.T.u., according to the duo’s feature-film debut You and I (formerly Finding t.A.T.u.) will open in what I assume is extremely limited release Sept. 1 in the United States. The movie stars Mischa Barton as a Russian girl and Shantel VanSanten as an American girl who are brought together and fall in love thanks to their shared love of the band.
