Carol, Todd Haynes’s film about how an unexpected (and unaccepted) love drastically changes the lives of two women in the 1950s, is slowly expanding to more and more theaters across the US.

On Saturday, at a Washington breakfast hosted by the Human Rights Campaign, Vice President Joe Biden and prospective President Hillary Clinton both gave impassioned speeches in support of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans—and our stalwart veep managed to squeeze in a rock solid republican diss, too.
In a clip from her upcoming album Same Sex Symbol, human treasure Cameron Esposito lays down some truths about her haircut, her vest, and what it means to be a lesbian. Turns out, the main component is LESBIANISM.
On Friday, the Independent published an interview with Angel Haze that featured some very strong quotes about media coverage of her relationship with Ireland Baldwin. In it, Haze is quoted as saying that she doesn't get why publications have referred to her and Baldwin as "best friends" instead of dating. "I have…
Cornetto has been doing a lot of filmmaking-as-advertising lately, by making long-form commercials that barely even show the product being shilled. The latest is called "40 Love," and features two winsome young ladies, with Lily Allen as a guest star.
Feast your eyes on a genuine relic from the late 20th century: "When You Meet a Lesbian: Hints for the Heterosexual Women." It is a handout from a women's studies class at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, circa 1988, and it is really something.

Ellen sits in front of a roaring fireplace in a mahogany living room, drinking whiskey from a cut crystal glass as Portia sleeps at her feet. So begins an "intense lesbian fanfiction" starring Ellen Degeneres, Portia di Rossi, Jodie Foster and a 21-year-old Midwesterner named Blaze.
Honestly, nothing would make me happier than Rihanna and Shakira having a hot and heavy lesbian relationship. In fact, I’d also be pretty happy about Rihanna and Shakira convincingly playing same-sex fuckbuddies in a music video.

Man, watching this new short for Girl on Girl's Indiegogo Campaign brought me down.

The video was made to promote awareness of Girl on Girl, a film following the lives of lesbians who, even…
