Happy International Women’s Day!
90210 is back this week and so we’re getting some scoop on the lesbian storyline. Executive producer Rebecca Sinclair told EW that the CW was “wary” of having Gia and Adrianna hook up. “There are still conservative factors in what they think they can do and should do,” she said, “but everyone was pleased with how it went.” Stop scaring me, Rebecca! If the conservatives are pleased, then I have my hopes dashed already.
Callie and Arizona have made the cut for the top 16 in E!’s Supercouple contest. Vote now to keep them in the contest. They’re up again Glee‘s Finn and Rachel.
For those of you that stuck by A Shot at Love post-Tila Tequila, you will remember the bisexual Ikki Twins. They were recently involved in a serious car accident, which left Rikki in ICU. You can keep up with her progress from her sister Vikki on their MySpace page.
Model Abbey Lee is being hailed as one of 2010’s It Girls, with her Aussie accent and tons of tattoos. And if you keep up with the Sapphic model set, you might have seen her paling around with Freja Behar.
The two posed together for Purple magazine in a lesbionic spread, about which Abbey said she “didn’t have to act that much” for. Though she wouldn’t comment on Freja, she did discuss her sexuality:
Canada’s new police drama The Bridge debuted over the weekend and featured “a man making out with a lesbian.” Another review notes that there’s a “hot lesbian cop” on the show, but I couldn’t confirm. Canadian viewers, keep us posted!
However, there is for sure a lesbian character in George Romero‘s Survival of the Dead, which is coming out on DVD this week. Athena Karkanis plays the gay lady named Tomboy. Ah, horror films.
In case you’re wondering, Ellen DeGeneres doesn’t type her own Tweets. She told TV Guide that Portia had to convince her to get an iPhone so they could text. Said Ellen:
She also said that she doesn’t think it’s a coincidence that she’s openly gay and “finally getting more success.”
Ellen for president. (Thanks Gwendolyn!)
Malinda Lo‘s novel, Ash, a retelling of Cinderella with a lesbian twist, was just published last week in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.

The singer is apparently dating Moa’s ex-girlfriend. Said Moa:
I’m not going to lie — I’m jazzed Ladyhawke is gay. I’m so into her music, so talk about the icing on the rainbow sprinkle cake.
See you tomorrow!
