Meet Crystal! She’s from Australia, and so is Portia de Rossi. This probably explains why Crystal is so great at talking about music – here she tells us all about Empire of the Sun, Sarah Blasko, and Evermore.
Guys, meet Crystal! Obama appoints a lesbian as Chief Judge of US Court of Federal Claims, there is a new French movie with sexy/psycho lesbian sex, and we are confused about Meghan McCain.
Rachael Ray, Magic Tomato (it’s a food, not a band name), Girls Gone Wild, PJ Harvey, Rye Rye, Solange, BFF Little Boots, Perez Hilton dropping the C-word, the Kanye West Surprise, Yelle, and the drunken end of SXSW. There were alcoholic sno-cones!
Kate Moennig’s Three Rivers Pilot spoilers, plus updates on Jennifer Beals, Leisha Hailey
Look, there are girls in The Advocate! (As well as muxes, a subculture of trans Mexicans!) In other news, articles on transpeople continue to be worded problematically, Helena’s interrogation tape is up, and adorable seventh graders attend their teachers same-sex wedding.
Quick! Pick one stereotype and squeeze yourself into it.
Yeah, Meaghan O’Malley thinks that’s pretty stupid, too. If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if you crossed an activist, self-assured, cargo shorts-wearing, feminist lesbian with an embroidering, cupcake-baking, doting housewife, Meaghan is your answer …
Discussed: SXSW can be really Random, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, I wanna take you to a GAYYYYY bar, War Tapes, White T-Shirts for Black T-Shirt People, useful swag, the School of Seven Bells, the kinds of bands you need to see when it’s dark out, our new favorite bar the Rusty Spur, the AKAs, pasty palors, Echo and the Bunnymen, Priceless Abortion, Girl in A Coma, Graham Coxon’s New Stuff, Tricky, DEVO.

Stef’s suitcase finally arrived! She saw Devo and Amanda Palmer and Margaret F*cking Cho! Amanda asks if maybe internet silence is going to be the new punk for musical artists, and later barks like a dog at Margaret Cho.

Obama, Tallahassee, and Judge Judy all love the gays, Tyra Banks is creeping us out, and Stef has great new music picks.
Well, I’ll be covering tech and TV. I’m not sure if I’m necessarily “qualified” … but I love gadgets and tech and TV quite a lot, which helps. My unique point of view is enhanced by my television watching habits. I watch an inordinate amount of TV.
eHarmony.com sponsors the gays even though we’re not allowed in and RuPaul is making a comback!
Intro to Stef. What is Totally Gay Music. Röyksopp. SXSW. Hey guys! My name is Stef and this is “The Beat on the Street,” where I’ll be writing to you homos & homo-allies about music every week or so (except um, this week, when you’ll hear from me a LOT — but more on that […]
