“It’s a world filled with wonderful, kind, queer people.”
The couples (or maybe just VERY CLOSE FRIENDS) who set our hearts aflutter all year long.
Also, Gaby Dunn placed herself under the Christmas tree, Jasika Nicole has a haunting serenade for you, and WE FOUND PATTERS.
Here’s to the lesbian, bisexual, non-binary, queer, trans and free-ass-motherfucker celebrities who opened the closet door a little wider when they walked out of it.
If you’ve been tracking our Gal Pal Reports throughout the last year, you must surely be aware of the blossoming love between Canadian heartthrob Ellen Page and dancer/choreographer Emma Portner. Well, they’re married now!
Is love a lie? PROBABLY, but these couples charmed the heck out of us this year anyway.
“I was eighteen years old. He looked at a woman standing next to me, ten years my senior, pointed to me and said: ‘You should fuck her to make her realize she’s gay.'”
BUT WHERE IS PATTERS?!?!?!
Does Brittani Nichols smell great? Does Kristen Stewart smell terrible? There’s only one way to find out, really.
Here are three examples of two women on The Good Fight being lesbians, bisexuals, gays, homosexuals, or otherwise queer-identified women. Cats are still what’s good in the world. So is Samira Wiley. The Sense8 Christmas special has arrived. St. Vincent covers Guitar World. Lexa will literally never die. Ellen Page and something about zucchini. And more pop culture news!
In which Jenny Owen Youngs is starting a new life among the ostriches, Ruby Rose is reunited with her iconic BFF and Brittani Nichols has a dance for you.
Also, Tegan and Sara crawl out of the cabbage patch and Brittani Nichols joins Samira and Lauren’s wedding procession.
Also, Ellen Page is hangin with beavers, Jiz Lee is doing EVEN MORE SPORTS and Samira Wiley has been a cartoon character this entire time.
This isn’t a May-December lesbian romance. Janney and Page revive and expand upon the chemistry they shared as step-mother and daughter in Juno. But it is a movie about women — about women who have been abandoned, who find each other, who hurt each other deeply.
Is Lindsay Lohan currently possessed by a demon?! I don’t know, but here’s a dog jumping into Jenny Owen Youngs’ lap! Also, Soko is dancing and Ellen Page is busy being supportive and adorable.
Also, Lauren Morelli and Samira Wiley are literally riding an inflatable unicorn under a rainbow and Carrie Brownstein caught you a frog. It’s a big week in here.
Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood are sitting in a (house in a forest of) tree(s) in “Into the Forest,” looking at a post-Twilight Kristen Stewart, Tegan & Sara queering Toronto pop music and so many other stories that will touch you deeply in important and meaningful ways.
Celesbian dogs we’ve known.
We’ve got the latest on Kristen Stewart’s relationship status, Kate Moennig and Leisha Hailey hawking wigs for dogs, a swan trying to make friends with Hari Nef and Lindsay Lohan’s spiritual feelings about clouds.
The more I look at film trends over these past social media-soaked years, the more I see the same pattern emerging. The films that end up doing well and making an impact are those that treat their characters with enough care to make them complex, treat their audience with enough respect to make the story engaging and compelling. Ellen Page’s new film Tallulah is one of these films.
