Guess what? We have a myspace. We have like ten friends. Do people still use myspace? Wanna be number eleven? Please?
So as you may know, we’re having a Pride Party, and we really want you to come. We want everyone to be happy and have fun! But if you can’t make it to NYC, you can still have fun with our ONLINE PRIDE RAFFLE. Secretly, this raffle has turned out to be f*ckin’ amazing. Seriously. I would enter it like ten times. We’ll let you know how to buy tickets ASAP.
We’re finalizing our prize page today, but in the meantime, check out one of two special auction items: the actual dress worn by Tina Kennard (Laurel Holloman) in Episode 607 of The L Word. Yes, you can own a piece of television magic, a dress that has encased the breasts of Laurel and been touched by the hands of J-Beals lovingly and lesbionically.
It’s a 7-day auction, so you have about 5 days to mull it over before anyone bids. Anyone who bids on the dress and forwards their bid confirmation email to email@example.com will also be automatically entered in the raffle.
Speaking of! Big thank you to everyone who emailed my brother for his birthday. He thanks you all from the bottom of his heart, which is very deep because he is very tall. Dani H & Michelle E — email firstname.lastname@example.org to get your free CD!

POP!: What a bizarre life Lorna Bliss leads. “Earning around £45,000 a year as Britney impersonator, for her it’s not just a day job but a way of life. She lives, breathes, eats and sleeps Britney.” (@mail online)

GAY: Not all gays support same-sex marriage – How does that brother on the street see President Obama’s homophobia as evidence of his Black manhood? (@grio)
POP: Will Michael Moore jump the shark with his new movie where he dares to take on the financial collapse? Am I excited for the movie simply because I want someone to explain this nonsense to me in a way that makes me feel satisfied and not even more confused, even though I realize my desire for that emotion is a cop-out because in fact it IS confusing, period? Does it annoy me that every time I naturally think “Why ask why” my mind immediately answers, “Try Bud Dry”? Where was I. Oh yes: Moore Is Less. (@newsweek)

↓ Obama Will Give Benefits to Gay Federal Employees. Yeah, So? “It’s also the absolute bare minimum Obama could do to show he’s hearing our cries for equality, our demands that he keep his campaign promises.” (@queerty)
↓ Sen. Ensign Supported Sanctity of Marriage. Then He Cheated on His Wife “While most folks are entitled to some privacy in their marriages, Sen. Ensign voluntarily abandoned that right the moment he voted for a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage in June 2006 and followed it up two years later by violating his own union.” (@queerty)
↑ The Georgia Supreme Court on Monday threw out a judge’s order that prohibited children in a divorce case from having any contact with their father’s gay and lesbian friends. (@ajc)

I’m a fan of “Free downloads” – here’s the 2009 Lifehacker Pack for Mac OS X of the best free applications that may or may not be useful to you on a daily basis. Ya never know!
Though I read Jezebel every day, somehow I missed the graphical glory of Cover Lies (I’m one of those people who skips pictures and only reads the text), which’s not to be missed. Go archves go!
