Laura LaFrate from America’s Next Top Model is an out bisexual:
“Being a lesbian or bisexual or gay, it’s not something that makes you different from anybody else. It just means that you have your own identity, and no one can take that away from you. And you should not feel bad for it, either. I went through a long time hating myself for it, but once you learn to accept it and embrace it, you can’t believe what life will bring to you.”

Marsha Thomason, who plays Detective Diana Barrigan on White Collar ,”I’m definitely aware of the fact it’s a real honor to play an out lesbian character on a show because it’s a voice we haven’t been hearing a lot. But I do think things are changing in television. I’m very excited. There are more gay characters on TV now then there ever have been. I’m so glad to be a part of that.” [source]
An interview with lesbian Stonewall veteran Stormé DeLarverie, “When you grew up like me, honey, you better be able to see all the way around you, because when the black kids weren’t chasing me, the white kids were chasing me, and if they weren’t, the dogs were chasing me, or the snakes were chasing me. Somebody was always chasing me - until I stopped running.”

So, to summarize, we really love it when you play gay, are gay or just act gay with your best friend on Twitter.
Kayla Ferrel, America’s Next Top Model [Cycle 15], “Apparently “queer” is okay to say. I just felt like, you know, it isn’t fair. We need to raise awareness about gays, bisexuals, transgendered, lesbians … about how we’re all really treated. We deserve the same rights, we deserve to be treated as people, not as if we’re just our sexuality.”
Chely Wright, “We proposed to each other. Designed our rings together, too! I’m beyond lucky to get to share my life with Lauren.”
The pair will wed on August 20th 2011 in Connecticut.
…The country singer came out exactly a year ago in People Magazine. “I don’t have a memory in my life that doesn’t include the dream of making music, [but] … there had never, ever been a country music artist who had acknowledged his or her homosexuality … I hid everything for my music.”
Has anyone been watching Generation L ? It’s meant to be a reality show about lesbians in Australia…“sensational new reality series that goes behind closed doors and into the lives and bedrooms of the new generation of gay women.”
After reading about it on After Ellen, I think I’m gonna check it out. There’s already 8 episodes online, about 4 mins each… still, I’ve got some catching up to do. If you haven’t already, why not join me?
“I see such extremes fed out to mainstream Australia via the media, that generalise what being “a real lesbian” is. We want to change that … it’s time to get representation of our real lives out on Aussie TV screens. We truly believe that we can have an impact in changing perspectives, and instead of just having “tolerance,” we will have true acceptance everywhere.”
…we’ll talk more about this later... I’m on the Road to Mardi Gras.
But before I go, I have to just mention the photo above: absolute classic. Eyes closed, goofy teeth, floppy smiles, not looking, awkward poses… was this REALLY the best shot? LOL.

WHAT THE FRIGGIN’ NORA?
A spin-off of the web phenomena that is "Lesbians who look like Justin Bieber", this blog is pretty much exactly the opposite...
So, this blog started off as a joke - it’s nothing against the Bieb, just simply that not every lesbian looks like him… In fact, what happened was the more we searched for new posts, the more we discovered that there’s a lot of encouraging, inspiring & sexy stuff out there!
We’re just sharing what we buzz off. Here we have a celebration of the time we live in. It’s a sneaky peek into open closets from the past and the present. It’s also become a place to share triumphs of our community, the highs and lows of our generation (mostly the highs) and just generally brilliant and important stuff relating to all things gay.
If you have any questions, please ask. If you have any suggestions, please make them known. If you have any revelations, please reveal. If you want to share, please open up. You are amazing and this is for you.
