Heather Graham takes on Kevin Spacey in the film Father of Invention (due for release on October 14). Graham’s character is a lesbian who sleeps with Spacey’s character because, as we all know by now, lesbians in movies somehow always end up sleeping with men. This ridiculous and annoying premise is going to send me back to anger management.

Glee scene-stealer Dot Jones and former professional wrestler Chyna have teamed up for the comedy White T. The “urban adventure” film is about twin brothers, played by Jerod and Jamal Mixon, who dream of becoming the biggest rap stars in the world. Unfortunately, Jones and Chyna only play supporting roles but I still can’t wait to see this masterpiece!

Emma Stone’s crime drama The Gangster Squad has been slated for an October 19, 2012 release by Warner Brothers. The film also stars Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin but, lets be real, I’m only going to see it because of Stone.
Over the summer, pop star Li Na became the first mainland Chinese celebrity to participate in the It Gets Better Campaign. Since I don’t speak the language, I have no idea what the 28-year-old said, in her video but I assume it’s something like, “Being gay is super duper cool so keep at it!”
Zany fashion designer Betsey Johnson is offering up to 70% off of her merchandize for Breast Cancer Awareness. My family has a history of breast cancer and I have a history of spending too much at the Betsey Johnson store on Melrose so I’ll definitely be purchasing a limited edition breast cancer awareness bundle. For $150 you get a tank top, tote bag, a pair of gloves and a two pairs of socks. (It’s not that I’m a shopaholic, I just want to fight the disease!)

Do you send out holiday cards? If so, consider buying them from Teazled.com, an LGBT-specific greeting card company. Teazled was created by a Las Vegas-based married lesbian couple (both nurses named Dina) because as Dina Proto puts it, “[We] felt a void looking for a greeting card to express our feelings during life’s special occasions, only to have to edit the available selection. We understand non-traditional families share the same traditional bonds of love and respect. We want the non-traditional family to be able to celebrate those meaningful moments, express their innermost thoughts and communicate with those they cherish.” Teazled offers greeting cards for 25 different occasions, including coming out and the recent repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
