Mistresses boss Rina Mimoun doesn’t want you to call Joss and Alex a lesbian storyline. “I’m so fascinated by the way it’s being perceived as a lesbian story line because, to me, it was the most heartbreaking in that it’s about someone who’s just so desperate to make a connection with somebody and she’s never actually had it. The first time she feels it happens to be with a woman, even though her own sexuality is decidedly not gay.”
Sean Maher is amused that his first big part since coming out is a mean ladies man in Much Ado About Nothing. “It’s funny that this was the first role after I came out. The question everyone kept asking was if I was going to be typecast so actually… [Laughs] My next project had me rolling on a bed with a woman.”
Charice may have come out as a lesbian, but her mother says she did it first! “I used to be a lesbian,” says Raquel Pempengco. She says that she switched under pressure from her parents to have a family.
One Million Moms has a list of things they don’t like about The Fosters, and they want you to contact the sponsors of the show about them. “Unacceptable content in the first episode included one foster child as an inmate in a juvenile detention center, sneaking and selling prescription drugs to earn money, a lesbian couple kissing on the mouth and snuggling in bed together, mentioning they are gay multiple times and purchasing condoms for their eldest son.”
I used to have a bunch of bespoke clothes. Now all that’s left are a few dress shirts and a tuxedo I wore twice. But evidently dress clothes are just the beginning for custom clothing, and in New York now you can get a bespoke set of swimming trunks, assuming you don’t mind choosing one of only three colors, waiting a week, and shelling out $325/pair.
Same-sex partner benefits, as many as DOMA allows, are set to begin September 1. While the great things like healthcare and housing allowances are forbidden by DOMA, soon same-sex partners can get ID cards, commissary benefits and more.

Bryan Batt says he doesn’t know if Sal will ever return to Mad Men, but he’s certain that Sal is still in the closet on the show. “It’s ’68. And next year is ’69, and that’s the Stonewall Riots. Everything happened in ’69. When you think about it, it’s really an incredible year. I have no idea, whatever the writers and Matt would come up with is far beyond whatever I would come up with. But we can hope Sal’s not dead.”
A court has ruled that school coaches didn’t violate a teen’s privacy when they confronted her and her parents about a lesbian relationship she was having with another student.

Eve says that Frank Ocean was incredibly brave when he spoke about loving another man. “Frank Ocean was ridiculously brave, to do what he did, to be true to himself that way. In hip-hop, there are a lot more people that probably should come out. I was pleasantly surprised by the reaction of people, because it was mostly positive. I was shocked and happy about how people were [towards him] and it made me think maybe things were changing and people are more accepting of things.”
Bill O’Reilly isn’t happy with a Wisconsin school that gave students the opportunity to dress up like the opposite gender. “You don’t dress up like a little girl when you’re five and you’re a boy. That’s just stupid… you might have to send him to camp.”
