LESBIANISH QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"I just really wanted to have a lead character on a show that was a lesbian and there were no issues about that. She’s comfortable with who she is. Not to say that she’s never going to run into some problems along the way, but it was just a different approach to the idea of the story. I really just wanted it to be a show about story and family, and I didn’t want to focus it so much on, ‘Ooh, she’s a lesbian!’ [laughs] Let’s just get past that and get on with the living part of her story."

A married lesbian couple, Ángela and Laura, are contestants on the new season of Spain’s Big Brother (Gran Hermano 11). AE reader Rogue tells us, "Ángela is Mexican and Laura is Spanish, they met by the internet and got married recently. Laura was going to be the contestant, but on the live show they asked Ángela to stay in the house and she said yes. As part of the contest, the couple has to lie to the other contestants and act like they don´t know each other. If they get caught, they must leave the house." (Thanks for the tip, and the update, Rogue!)
