There have been more than the usual number of out lesbians on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in the last few weeks. And by "more than usual" I mean three (that’s a 300% increase from zero, the average of most talk shows that aren’t actually hosted by a lesbian). So I thought I’d bring you a round-up of their interviews, for your weekend enjoyment.
Last night, Rachel Maddow was on The Tonight Show talking about politics and the presidential election, and looking very, very gay — and I mean that in a good way (watch her segment of the episode here).
Two weeks ago, Ellen DeGeneres was on, talking about gay marriage, the importance of voting against California’s Prop. 8, and … hitting Julia Louis Dreyfus with a rock. Here’s a clip of that (watch the full episode here):

It’s not every day you see someone tell Ellen to "Go f–k yourself!”
But Jay’s funniest conversation was with Wanda Sykes, in which she talks about Sarah Palin, and what should happen to people who don’t vote.

Read Wanda’s recent interview with the Dallas Voice for more entertaining answers from her.
So now the question is — who will be Jay’s next queer female guest?
