For some reason, Lori Michaels cannot appear somewhere unless she’s announced as “lesbian superstar Lori Michaels.” The self-proclaimed LSS wrote a song for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub (yes, the one with the sex tape) and performed it live with her on Watch What Happens on Bravo last night.
After the performance, the host asked if they were dating. Lori (who also refers to herself as “The Dyke Diva”) shook her head, but Danielle, who was sitting on the Dyke Diva’s lap, said “We’re not saying anything other than we’re together on this song, real close.”
Oh dear. Lori, I hope you’re getting paid a lot to be the new DJ Tracy Young.
I’m really resigned to the idea that the producers of the show don’t care about lesbian visibility or equality at all, and instead are focused on good TV. That’s all I can come up with as to why their storylines make lesbians look like non-monogamous, narcissistic power hungry women who claim they are more like a straight person or a gay man than a lesbian.

Lesbians, get ready: SyFy is asking fans to create a new movie.

Last week AfterEllen.com reader Kiley sent me a tip:
And now, my dear friend Zack Rosen at The New Gay is helping to confirm that the two musicians might actually be a couple. Check out his interview with Mirah below.
She’s so coy! And here’s them playing a song together. Cute.
Mirah is openly gay, and Thao has said she is “not straight.” Let’s hope to hear more from them — musically and otherwise — in the future.
Last night, Miley Cyrus dedicated her song “My Heart Beats for Love” to her gay fans while playing live in Los Angeles. Thanks girl. Now let’s commit to that girl kiss next time. She’s still doing the halfsies move.
OK come back for more later. XOXO.
