Morning, brewsters! Are you all tuckered out from coming out yesterday? It’s so draining sometimes! Can’t we all just wear rainbow hoodies and call it a day? (But seriously, if you haven’t come out yet and want to, Ms. Magazine has five easy steps for you to consider.)
We’re finally getting a look at Rooney Mara in full-on Lisbeth Salander gear. Here she is on the set of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Convincing enough for you? If not, blame Noomi Rapace for being so amazing in the original.
There’s a fourth book in the Stieg Larsson Millenium series, but it will never be released. I’m assuming that’s the one that has Lisbeth getting married to her partner and trying to find a suitable sperm donor.
On last night’s Gossip Girl, Blair accidentally offends her prospective teacher when she mistakenly identifies a woman as “her date.” This was all Chuck’s plan — “the lesbian switcheroo,” as Blair refers it later on. Chuck wore the same scarf that the woman was wearing, in hopes Blair would make the mistake, which she did.
Offended that Blair thinks she’s a lesbian (“Because I’m a career driven woman!”), Miss Chamberlain says her class is “full forever” and leaves, eventually quitting altogether. Yes, being thought gay is that offensive. (For the record, Blair did not think she was gay. She thought she liked scarves.)
Out German TV personality Dunja Hayali brought her partner Mareike Arning to the German Television Awards, where she talked to a local paper about each of her tattoos, which were showing from under her dress. A translation:
Thanks for the tip, MeL! Ruby Rose, I think you should be next.
Curve magazine is under new ownership for the first time in its existence. Avalon Media, who publishes Bound and LOTL magazines, has taken over the fledgling lesbian publication and ousted editor Diane Anderson-Minshall. In her place, they’ve promoted Merryn Johns, who has worked for both of their existing publications. In a press release, Johns said:
An all new Curve will debut in December.
Marie Claire has a piece about a woman who faced coming out to her “beauty queen mom.” It’s hilarious, well-written and uses the words “toothless troll.” It’s a great read, especially after yesterday’s holiday.
Outlaw has officially been cancelled, which means Carly Pope is available for work. Any takers?
Salon.com wants to know when it’s OK to call something “gay.” Mary Elizabeth Williams writes:
The short answer: It’s OK to call something gay when it is actually gay. Margaret Cho’s prideful dance routine for the gay community? Gay.
Tegan and Sara talked with the i4c Campaign while on Lilith Fair this summer. Here they share what they’d like to see in a better world.
Us, too, Amy. We’re hoping that the rumored bisexuality of Ms. Joplin gets explored, though, and that you won’t complain again about being “duped” into kissing another woman.
Ex-Venice director Hope Royaltey has a new project: a Twitter-based soap opera. It’s called The P@ssionate & The Privileged and TV.com breaks it down:
So will there be some gay ladies on the show? Royaltey says:
Stacie Ponder‘s Ludlow is screening in Boston tomorrow night. If you’re in Beantown, check it out!
October is LGBT History Month, and Logo has a video archive of fun stuff to help you remember all of lesbian-things past.
Out musician Jen Foster‘s song “This is Me” has been adopted as the song of the HRC’s National Coming Out Project. You can download it for free on her site.
For all of you lucky enough to live where you can watch, Lip Service debuts today/tonight! Tweet along with our Great LezBritain girls with the hashtag #LipService. They’ll be recapping the show and including choice Tweets.
See you later!
