INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW
I recently stumbled across a website I just had to share: ralst.com (aka Passion and Perfection),
a repository of lesbian fan fiction, photos and wallpapers.
The fan fiction section covers a lot of different TV shows, and the wallpaper
section features lesbianish collages of a wide variety of shows, from Birds
of Prey and Popular to Battlestar Galactica and Law
& Order. As is typical with most fan art, the wallpaper offerings run
the gamut from creative and seamless to ones that make you want to cover your
eyes and yell "My eyes! My eyes!" like Phoebe on Friends.
But these fake lesbian tabloid covers made by a ralst.com member named trancer
are truly inspired:
I’m amused — and also wondering, why didn’t I think of that?!
Oh, right: because I already have a zillion things to do. So yay for creative
lesbians with more free time! See more of the fake tabloids here
and check out L-Word.com’s extensive lesbian
TV fan fiction section for even more ways to spend way too much time online.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
Next Friday, we’ll be launching a new biweekly audio podcast called Oh
God, I’m Gay, featuring host Alicia Ross talking with
various religious and spiritual leaders of different faiths.
Logo and HRC will co-host the
first presidential forum devoted to gay issues on Aug. 9, with live
streaming of the event online. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards
have all confirmed they will participate.
The Game Show Network’s new game show Without Prejudice doesn’t have
any gay contestants yet, but sexual
orientation issues come up.
Jael from America’s Next Top Model lists her sexual
orientation as "lesbian" on her
MySpace profile (thanks Candace!).
Michael Moore might
tackle homophobia in his next film.
That’s it for this week! Check back next Friday for another edition of
Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever.
