Best, Lesbian. Week. Ever. (March 30, 2007)

 
 

THE RED CARPET’S NEVER SEEN SO MANY BI-CURIOUS SHOES
At the New York edition of the GLAAD awards this week, there were lots of lesbian
shows/people/media outlets nominated, but the gay male or co-ed LGBT nominees
won
in every category but two (All My Children, for Best Daytime Drama,
and Oprah’s "Gay
Wives" episode
for Outstanding Talk Show Episode). So basically, same
story, different year.

But GLAAD did honor out comedian Kate
Clinton
with a special award, presented by Cynthia
Nixon
, and there were lots of lesbians in attendance, including Rosie and
Kelli O’Donnell, Jackie Warner, Billie
Jean King
, Heather Matarazzo
and Judy Gold, as well as some lesbian favorites
such as Eden Riegel, Julianne Moore, Dana Delany and Stephanie
March
. Jennifer Hudson and Patti LaBelle (who from the press photos, appear
to be the only women of color at the event) also staged an impromptu performance,
and Jackie Warner unexpectedly dropped to the floor onstage and did 20 one-handed
push-ups before bench-pressing Judy Gold. OK, not really, but that would’ve
been fun to see!

Here are some photos from the event:

Also present? Melrose from last season of America’s Next Top
Model,
and Hillary Duff. Why? Your guess is as good as mine.

MULLETS NOT ALLOWED
There
might not be any lesbians on network TV right now, but we’ve got more coming
on cable: Bravo’s latest reality series, Shear
Genius
, in which "a group of talented hairstylists from around
the world will literally go head-to-head in creative challenges that require
more than just talent with a comb and scissors," includes two openly gay
women among the contenders: Daisy,
a top stylist and salon owner in Miami, and Tabatha,
the owner of Industrie Hair Gurus in Ridgewood, New Jersey. The series debuts
on April 11th.

Great about the lesbian stylists, but I’m more excited to see Jaclyn Smith
(who hosts) on TV again! She was my favorite Angel growing up. Judging
from these
comments
, I’m not her only lesbian fan. Not that I’d throw Kris or Jill
out of bed for talking to a mysterious man over a voice-box — and Sabrina’s
intelligence was a definite plus — but really, who can compete with Kelly’s
hair?
