Did you enjoy the Emmys last night? I liked how gay there were at the beginning, with Jane Lynch winning and thanking her wife. We’ll have a full Emmy report from Dorothy Snarker today.
On the finale episode of the NBC mini-series Persons Unknown, lesbian viewers finally got their payoff: Erika/Theresa (Kandyse McClure) and Janet (Daisy Betts) kissed.
Unfortunately, it was all for show and the series came to an anti-climatic end. If you’d like to watch it, though, you can see it on the last couple of minutes of episode “And Then There Were None.”
The Globe and Mail made a list of four things they learned this summer and number three is “Hollywood loves lesbians, as long as they have better sex with men.” They write:
Either the (female) writer reads AfterEllen.com or she’s just extremely into watching lesbians on TV and film with a critical eye. I like her already.
On the second season premiere of Childrens Hospital, The Chief (Megan Mullaly) tries to kiss Dr. Cat Black (Lake Bell), saying she knew she had a thing with Lola, her dead best friend. But Lola isn’t gone for good — in fact, the entire episode (“I See Her Face Everywhere”) is about the return of Lola and her unrequieted love for Cat — until Cat dies and Malin Akerman replaces her. Yes, they’re poking fun at Calzona and Grey’s Anatomy, but the whole show is so ridiculous and a parody of all hospital shows so you’ll appreciate it for what it is.
On the heels of the Big Brother Africa‘s truth-or-dare lesbian kiss last week, housemates Sheila and Meryl ended up in bed together and it was all caught on camera. The Namibian describes how it went down:
That means that everyone in the house could watch what was going on, and apparently “Hannington, Yacob, Tatiana and Lerato looked on with an equal mixture of pure envy and disgust.” Unfortunately, any chance for a showmance is out now, as Sheila was voted off soon after.
Out photographer Cass Bird took the cover photo and inside spread of lesbian model Freja Beha Erichsen in Dossier magazine this month.
Looking good, ladies. Proof that sometimes two lesbians are better than one.
Out writer Emma Donoghue‘s new book Room doesn’t appear to have any gay content, but it sounds incredibly intense and is getting rave reviews. In short, it’s about Jack, a young boy who has lived his entire life in a small room, having only known his mother and what she tells him about life. When they eventually go into the real world, Jack has to adapt and finds it hard not to miss the room he grew so accustomed to.
This has to be Anne Lister’s best posthumous year ever!
Then again, Jennifer “Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner” Grey is also competing, so it’s going to be some tough competition.
Come back later or I will miss you!
