It’s Sunday Funday And Lea Michele and Cameron Diaz Are Gay BFFs

Hello, cotton candy bunches! I’m so tired I could collapse.

Lea Michele Loves Lesbians

Lea Michele is looking forward to a lifetime of gaying it up.


LM: I emailed Andrew Haigh and I was like, “Look, I loved it before, but I love it even more now. You gotta get me on the show. I’ll do anything. Anything you want me to play, even if I’m in the background, I’ll do it.”

Q: Can we get you on there as a lesbian?

LM: One hundred percent!

The Butch Women of San Francisco, Up Close and Really Personal

Don’t thank me. Thank Meg Allen.


It’s The Law, Betch

+ Gay marriage has arrived in the UK, and it’s great. (The UK Bishops love it too.)


+ Maryland is taking action to protect the rights of trans folks.

+ The federal government will recognize gay marriages in Michigan, whether they like it or not.

Cameron Diaz Has Lesbian Tendencies, Sort Of

Cameron Diaz thinks girls are pretty. It turns out there really was something about Mary.


This Is A Cute Photo

Told ya so.

  1. You know I have often said that Rachel Berry has driven me up a wall for 4 seasons but damn if I didn’t buy Lea Michele’s new album anyway. Girl can blow. I’m not the biggest fan of Looking but I would not object to seeing her play a lesbian at all.

  2. Oh, that Meg Allen article and picture collection is sooooo relevant to my interests…

    I’ve been wanting to chop off my long hair for a while now, but I’m scared of the reaction of people around me — friends, family, coworkers. Especially because I already tend to dress more on the MOC side and I’m not out.

    Argh. But those cute hairstyles, though.

    • Oh hey me 2 years ago. Nice to see you. Cut your hair off already. Everyone will tell you they love it and that they secretly want to cut theirs too. You will be more comfortable and confident and therefore hotter. Have a drink. Throw on some lip gloss if it helps. Damn the patriarchy.

      • Hi, future me! lol. Thanks for the input. It is a scary thing to do, cutting it off. I’ll probs receive the good feedback you mention. But it scares me sh*tless regardless. Call it bullying based on my gender presentation, internalized homophobia, religious environment, idk…

        Damn the patriarchy indeed!

  3. Ohhh I wanted to be excited about Cameron Diaz’s “lesbian tendencies” but the actual quote was ‘meh’ at best and ‘ugh’ at worst. If she’s attracted to women then she could just say that, rather than saying that “all women have been sexually attracted to another woman at some point” and conflating “a connectivity and an appreciation for the beauty of other women” with sexual orientation.

  4. Yay, you picked my favourite picture of that Meg Allen series to include–though it’s not an easy bunch from which to pick just one favourite!

  5. Oh, Cameron… This is what I thought too, for many years. Turns out it was about a bit more than that :)

  6. I immensely dislike Rachel Berry (IMMENSELY) and by proxy Lea Michele (b/c she’s too much like Rachel Berry irl for my liking) but I kind of dig her album. Kind of.

    Also, it’d be nice if Cameron could just find herself a nice lil’ lady and settle down and maybe use JT or ARod as a sperm donor and have some nice lil’ Cuban gaybies or Cuban/Dominican gaybies or Cuban/JT gaybies and that’d be just so nice.
