ADAM LAMBERT: Queerty has new shots from Adam Lambert’s album photoshoot with Robert Sebree, and it’s a little weird, but luckily Adam Lambert has a lifetime pass of adoration from Autostraddle. He does lots of things: Adam Lambert leaves his shirt a little unbuttoned, Adam Lambert gets an alternative lifestyle haircut, Adam Lambert rocks a lot of fashion trends at once, I hope one of them becomes a trend soon. Then there’s super-slim angular Adam Lambert. Basically, the whole shoot is perfect gay glam-camp and we cannot wait for the album!(@queerty)

DRAMA: After almost 20 years, the legal drama between a multimillionaire IBM heiress Olive Watson and her ex-girlfriend Patricia Spado may soon be resolved. Part of the problem: because same-sex marriage was a distant impossibility in the early 90s, Watson adopted Spado as her daughter to give her financial security. They broke up in ’92, but when Watson’s father died, Spado claimed that as his granddaughter, she was entitled to her piece … this October, resolution may finally come. (@advocate)
CHURCH: Do you like to have sex? Well then, the Lutheran Clergy is ready for your clergyness! (@nytimes)
LADY GAGA: This review of Lady Gaga’s concert in England is written so funny, I secretly love it: She then left the stage as her band played an instrumental interlude. After a short while, two dancers wheeled the flamboyant singer back on, although this time she was wearing a huge wedding hat and oversized sparkly gown. (@nme)
SCAN from Glamour Magazine’s article on “The Secrets of Perfect Couples” features Cat Cora and her wife Jen and their adorable children, right in there with all the strais!
Cat Cora: “Before Jen, I never believed in love at first sight. After a year she went to Paris for work. I followed, bought a ring and champagne and took her to the Eiffel Tower.”
Jen: “I was clueless, I wanted a burger.”
Cat Cora: “I proposed in French. She didn’t understand but said, ‘Oui!’ We wore traditional white wedding dresses.”

WATCH: The Stagg Party, a web series on IFC, is a documentary web series about Ellen Stagg, a professional photographer in Brooklyn, New York, who is amazing and photographs a lot of naked girls, often more than one at a time.
TECHNICALLY SFW: “Clitoris-vagina distances less than 2.5 cm — that’s roughly from the tip of your thumb to your first knuckle — tend to yield reliable orgasms during sex. More than a thumb’s length? Regular intercourse alone typically might not do the trick: Female Orgasms and a ‘rule of thumb.'” (@latimes)
BUTCH/FEMME PORN: Sinclair Sexsmith says: “This was absolutely the first butch/femme porn I ever saw, and it blew my mind. I had a VHS version until a few years ago … but: it was made in 2000. And I was OBSESSED with it in 2001. So when Babeland offered it up, I jumped, but wondered nervously: would it hold up? Would it be outdated? – Hard Love & How to Fuck in High Heels (DVD)” (@sugarbutch)

I found a cute/smart little video about How To Come Out.
