Good morning, gay women!
Let’s get to the bad news first: Window Media, home to gay publications Southern Voice and Washington Blade, has filed for bankruptcy.

Speaking of losing legendary parts of the LGBTQ community, writer Andrea Lewis passed away from a massive heart attack this week. An out lesbian who covered homophobia, racism and sexism for The Progressive among other publications and radio stations. She will be missed.

OURsceneTV caught up with Dani Campbell on the Sweet Cruise, right after they got enough Internet access to see Tila’s firestorm of lesbian-“Dani is my lost love” Tweets last week. Dani had no idea that Tila “came out” but hasn’t heard from her in years. In other news, Dani Campbell is single. Jump on it.
