This week’s feature image is from the Girls Scouts of Orange County.
Hello sparkly mermaids! What a week we’ve had. I for one, have never been so tired and yet so wide awake at the same time. It almost seems like everything is awful, but guess what? It’s not! How can I be so sure of that, you ask? Well, for one thing, Lea Michele and Ashley Tisdale sang Robyn’s lesbian anthem “Dancing on My Own” to each other.
While the Boy Scouts were busy listening to speeches from the leader of the Demon Lizard Patriarchy, the Girl Scouts of America added 23 new STEM related badges. This is on top of their new cybersecurity badges they added last year. The Girl Scouts: raising the next generation of hacker lesbians. ??
Hayley Kiyoko wants you to know that girls are a gift from above. And she isn’t wrong. Go tell a girl she’s pretty today.
Girls are just so pretty. I'm just like. THANK YOU LORD for blessing my day. Sigh.

Do you watch the X Factor? Me either. However maybe we should, because rapper Honey G, who came to fame because of the competition has come out as a lesbian! In an interview with The Sun, she revealed that her ideal woman is Queen Latifah. “I’ve had a thing for her for fucking ages. Literally. She’s an A-list celebrity so how can I get anywhere near her, do you know what I mean?” Who’s gonna give her the bad news?
The best part of this however has to be the way she chose to come out: via a topless photoshoot. A heroine to us all.
In the greatest “ding-dong the witch is dead!” moment, not only is Stephen Moffat leaving, the new Doctor on BBC’s Doctor Who is a canonically bisexual woman.
Michelle Gomez, who plays Missy in the sci-fi hit, dropped a plot spoiler when discussing Broadchurch actress Jodie Whittaker.
She said: “Now we have a got a female Doctor so there is going to be girl on girl.”
According to the Daily Star, “A lesbian love story is set to send ratings through the roof.” I agree wholeheartedly.
There’s some new (kind of premature) data out there about LGBT wedding trends. Out of 821 LGBT couples it seems as if queer women spend less than queer men on the wedding, but they spend about $1,000 more on wedding rings. 17% of women show their partners their outfit before the big day, and 20% of women walk down the aisle together.
Among lesbian couples, 74 percent had a maid of honor (58 percent) or best woman (16 percent), and 36 percent had a man of honor (14 percent) or best man (22 percent).
Non-binary season 5 winner of Rupaul’s Drag Race, Jinkx Monsoon will be voicing a new gem on next season’s Steven Universe! As fans of Steven Universe know, gems are non-binary femme aliens who are typically voiced by women; it’s exciting to see someone who identifies as non-binary voice one of the characters!
And finally, James Corden reminded us how good Lindsay Lohan’s remake of The Parent Trap was with his parody of “L-O-V-E” called “L-G-B-T”. Damn, I gotta watch that movie again.
Happy Sunday friends! Be sure to spend at least 12 minutes ignoring the 24-hour news cycle today!
