Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (May 9, 2008)

Power Up has announced its annual list of 10 Amazing Gay Women in Showbiz, who will be honored at its annual gala on Nov. 9 (see our photos from last year’s gala here and watch our red carpet interview footage here).

The nonprofit organization designed to fund and develop lesbian movies most recently released The Itty Bitty Titty Committee, which is coming out on DVD in September.

Here’s a quick rundown of this year’s honorees:

Michaline Babich, Cheryl Dunye and Barbara Gaines

  • Michaline Babich, Writer/Director/Executive Producer (Gimme Sugar)
  • Gaye Ann Bruno, Director, Photography, CBS Television Network
  • Cheryl Dunye, Writer/Director (Watermelon Woman)
  • Karen Flischel, Executive Vice President and General Manager, here!
  • Jenny Fulle, Executive Vice President and Executive Producer, Sony Pictures Imageworks (Speed Racer, Spider-Man 3)
  • Barbara Gaines, Executive Producer, The Late Show With David Letterman
  • Nancylee Myatt, Writer/Producer/Director, Film Fatale Productions (3Way, South of Nowhere)
  • Lisa Sherman, Executive Vice President, Logo
  • Samantha Sprecher, Vice President of Development, Face Productions
  • Suzanne Westenhoefer, Comedian

Look for our coverage of the event in November, and go to for more info about the organization and tickets for the event.

And look for Nancylee Myatt on this Sunday’s Brunch With Bridget, when she talks about 3Way, South of Nowhere and being a cowgirl at heart.

Don’t you hate it when you get rejected by men, turn to another woman as a last resort and unexpectedly fall in love with her, only to find out that your new girlfriend is actually your sister?

Me too!

Fortunately, we finally have a movie that sheds light on this all-too-common lesbian tragedy, the creatively named Russian movie A Sister’s Kiss. Check out the trailer (with English subtitles):

You know it’s going to be a quality film when the director tags the trailer with the keywords, "sexy lesbian chick love girls teens kissing hot paris hilton tatu britney pamela avril lohan adult real life incest."

The movie is available to purchase and download online (what, no theatrical distribution?), and I don’t know about you, but I’m thinking Oscar nomination … Hey, it worked that lesbian serial killer movie!

(Thanks to Camilla for the tip!)
