The North Carolina based company has also donated $10,000 to GLSEN. You can pick up your Pride Lip Balm Pack on the company’s website. It’s 100% natural to boot.

It’s Complicated, a new webseries directed and written by Cheska Bacaltos, tells the story of former couple, Lance and Skye, who are stuck living together until their lease is up. Things get very interesting when Skye falls for a woman for the first time. New episodes air every other Saturday and we meet Skye’s new love interest very soon! 



The Young Turks weight in on the “is Elsa from Frozen a lesbian” discussion. (Some NSFW language.)


If you’ve been on Twitter in the past few days, you’ve probably heard about the #TooFemale hashtag, which sprung up in response to CBS passing on Sarah Shahi’s Nancy Drew pilot for being “too female” as reported by Deadline. Needless to say, Twitter wasn’t thrilledNow there’s even a shirt commemorating the hashtag.
