Here’s our roundup of the biggest, best, and worst events for gay people in 2009.
Autostraddle looks back on some of the decade’s most awesome books by queer ladies. Annie Leboivitz shoots Britney’s Candies Campaign, a year in Gaga costumes, Disney’s best & worst princesses, and Lady Gaga gives an interview that’s really weird, even for her.

Surely if we thought really hard, wikipedia’ed (we expected a “lesbian characters in plays” list of some sort to appear … it did not), checked out the glbtq encyclopedia and googled some shit, we’d be rushing to narrow down the contenders by Sunday afternoon.
