This year, our lineup will include Bridget McManus doing standup; improv comedy à la the Worst Date Stories performed by the WGN team plus Bridget, Cathy DeBuono, Michelle Paradise and Marnie Alton; and the filming of a scene from 3Way, with an AfterEllen.com reader in a walk-on role.
The focus of the improv will be Worst/Funniest Dinah Shore Stories as submitted by AfterEllen.com readers by April 1st. If you’ve never been to Dinah, just give us your Worst/Funniest Experience at a lesbian party or bar. The twist? Lori and I, along with Come With Me if You Want to Live vloggers Jenn and Dee, will judge each performance — for no particular reason except we like to judge people. Start submitting your Dinah stories here now!
Finally, to win a walk-on role on 3Way, you need to (a) be over 21; (b) plan to attend our event at Dinah; and (c) tell us about your weirdest/funniest/worst living situation by March 15th. We’ll pick a winner and notify you two weeks before the Dinah weekend. Give us your living situation stories here.
And for the rest of you: We’ll be videotaping everything that moves to put up on the site afterward, so don’t worry, you won’t miss anything!
LESBIAN QUOTE OF THE WEEK
RACHEL WEISZ IN A BLACK LEATHER JACKET? SHE MUST BE GAY/BI!
I won’t give away the ending, but this is the setup: Reynolds’ character discovers that his wife (Banks) once had an affair with Weisz’s character. He’s apparently not too bothered by this, because he still proposes to Banks’ character (she declines), then dates Weisz, and when that falls through, ends up marrying Banks anyway when Weisz reintroduces them years later as a "former lover." Which brings him to where he is today: still torn between three women.

Which woman will he end up with? I don’t really care.
What I do care about is that according to Brian, even though there aren’t any actual scenes of the affair between Weisz and Banks (there’s a bit of steamy diary reading, but that’s it), "no one reacts with any horror or shame or anything about the romance, it just was what it was."
Now that is definitely, maybe, some on-screen progress.
