Presented to you with no comment, Dusty + Romi‘s music video for “Love.”

Speaking of The Real L Word, Kacy and Cori were guests on the ScreenPicks podcast this week.

The Voice‘s De’Borah said that when she spoke the words “Boom, I’m gay!” on national TV the other night, that was the first time she’s ever come out.

I never ever mentioned those words like “I’m gay.” I’ve never said that before. It didn’t even freak me out like “Whoa, I can’t believe I just said that.”

Congrats De’Borah!

Azealia Banks talked about me her gay fans in a recent interview:

Definitely. I mean, I’m bisexual, so it makes sense. But I don’t want to be that girl who says all gays necessarily hang out together, of course! I have people say to me, “Oh wow, my friend is gay, too,” and I’m like, “Yeah, so?”

What a great excuse for me to now share her “1991” music video with you all.


Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi celebrated their fourth marriage anniversary with some rad skywriting, as they do every year. Oh to be rich!

In some great news, Ellen’s Season 10 premiere gave her the best ratings she’s had since 2006.

Community‘s Gillian Jacobs talks about her love of AfterEllen and our FemSlash poll in this interview with Inside Pulse.
